Be an All Star Giveaway

I live in Converse.
I have about 7 pairs that are more beloved to me than any pair of high heels.
I take mine to concerts, school, work, dates, and if you're gonna walk a mile in a pair of my shoes, you'll be doing it in converse.

might as well be my closet

About two years ago I found out that you could design your own and quickly made these beauties for myself


For my first giveaway I himmed and hawwed over what I wanted to do. I wanted it to be something someone would really enjoy, something that would get use, something that meant a lot to me and something that was near and dear to my heart.

Then it occurred to me: Converse!

So for my first giveaway I am giving away, to one lucky reader, a $75 gift card to Converse.com to make your very own pair of custom chucks.
I love mine dearly and want to pass on the love to one lucky reader.

Here are the rules:

Giveaway open from Friday 4/23 to midnight Thursday 4/29
(I will announce the winner on Friday 4/30)

leave a comment telling me your shoe obsession = 1 entry
be a follower = 1 entry
tweet or blog about this giveaway = 1 entry (please link to your blog post and give me you twitter username)

I hope you all have an amazing weekend. I'll be appropriately dreaming about this:

please make your way to my closet

my shoe obsession has to be my birkinstocks. it is funny because before i owned a pair i thought they were really ugly. But since buying them over 1 year ago i fell in LOVE!

i own dozens and dozens of other shoes but none of them will replace these not so pretty loves of mine :)

I have one pair of Chucks. I got them 2 years ago. My sister-in-law who's the same age as me got her first pair too. We both got black ones and decided they were our version of friendship bracelets. Then I got my lover a pair too.

We purposefully take them on all our adventures.

When I got them I started The Gypsy Feet.

W-whoa, crazy awesome giveaway! hrm... I've not alot of money to buy shoes, so I only have one pair of converse (in black). But man does that pair have alot of laces! The laces get changed according to each outfit. I have a bit of a rainbow of them. My converses get alot, alot! of love that way... really worn out, in more ways than one. xD

Does that count as a 'shoe obsession'?

I too, am a converse girl! I luckily have a job that is casual, so I can wear chucks daily. When I need to dress up I wear my pinstriped ones, and when I'm in a good mood I wear my hot pink ones. My favorite are my double tongue black sheep ones-their so rad!!

Awesome giveaway....I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

My shoe obsession...OK I'm about to show my age so be nice....I got my first pair of Chucks when I was 13, they were black because thet was the only color they came in for girls. I have been wearing and loving Converse for about 24 years. I passed my love of convers to my oldest daughter, she's 21, and now my three younger kids are also addicted.
I am a Mom, wife and I own a small Indie cosmetic company so comfort is key.

Now you know my Convers life story. :o)

OMG! I love all shoes.. I wear chucks when I have them and usually sew things to them.. When I don't have chucks I wear high heels or wedges. & When I don't have those I pimp out my boots.
