Okay, okay, guys, I know that was a HORRIBLE title but gimme a break, I’m new around here & it’s my birthday. I hope I didn’t just totally blow it with you guys already.
Anyway. Has anyone seen that show My Strange Addiction where there’s a woman addicted to her husband’s ashes, & a woman who’s addicted to bleach & a woman with a really silky looking weave who’s addicted to mothballs? Yeah, well, if you haven’t you should and if you have, I think I need to go on it. This is my addiction:
Vans Authentics. I have bought 3 pairs in the past 4 days alone. I keep seeing more & more that I want. I think about them all the time. I even searched for infant versions just to see what they look like (so cute/no I do not have any infants). I lurk around eBay looking for cool ones all the time like a burglar staking out a bank. You get the picture. So here are my new additions:
My faves of the three pairs above are actually the straight coke white ones. The pink(/carmine rose) ones are bananas and you just can’t go wrong with grey suede, right?!
And the thing is, this craving didn’t start until I realised it was almost SUMMER and now every single time I get dressed, in my head I’m thinking about how well a pair of Auths in such-and-such a colorway would complete the outfit. They are so simple. Just right. Nothing fancy. Sturdy but not stiff. Not showy but just crisp enough. Don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about.
My addiction is made 100x worse by the fact that I live really, really near an awesome sneaker store (Offspring in Camden for those who wanna know/stalk) so I’m thinking tomorrow maybe go in for these babies:
Please tell me someone else out there feels the same? And that they are embarrassed about their recycling always looking like this?
Okay, this was way too long, I’ve got to calm down and go to sleep now. Picture me, Googling ‘mint green vans authentic’, softly weeping, hugging the screen.
