There are certain things from childhood (circa 1988-1996) that I cannot get over. Onesie items - overalls, rompers, jumpers, bodysuits (before Miley's crotch destroyed their retro-fabulous reputation), and footie pajamas. I also enjoy plaid, patchwork, and anything overly distressed.
Basically anything that screams "DON'T TAKE ME SERIOUSLY".
(Cue thought-provoking silence)
As for footwear, I love my collection of little Ked-like tennies. I don't prefer to spend a lot of money on them (see: Ked like - though I could seriously die over their polka dot collection - gah!) because I don't want to care if they only last one season. Wear them out and replace. Be able to afford multiples - one in every print, please. A set for every pair of overalls I intend to own.
These cuties from Go Jane are $12.50, plus 25% off through tomorrow with code APRIL25R.
