In the spirit of giving gifts that are purely FUN, I am crazy about these Chuck Taylor’s from Net-A-Porter.
According to the website, these cuties were created in collaboration with cult Finnish design company Marimekko.
I mean, really. How adorable are they? Come to think of it: I think I had a patch work sweater in the 80s that would match perfectly! Wouldn’t they just make you smile to see them on someone’s feet? What a super fun gift to give!
And the added Silver Lining: they were $80 and are now $40!
Speaking of fabulous sneakers, a girlfriend told me about these outrageously adorable custom Converse sneakers from The Monogram Shop. I can’t even stand how cute they are. And the Silver Lining is that you can customize them for an extra special and thoughtful twist.
