Timeless

sam

Mother Cheryl has been warming our hearts for years now, but we were tickled pink when she thought of us for Sam’s 50s Sock Hop footwear. Now that his feet are big enough to fill the slate blue hi-tops, he’s well on his way to becoming a classic rebel without a cause.

3 Simple Steps . . .

RL

. . . to dressing like Rachel Lowe:

1. Steven Alan plaid button down.

2. Converse Chuck Taylors. Any color.

3. Tarina Tarantino accessories. As many as possible.

It’s a simple formula, friends.

And it also works for boys…although we’d suggest skipping Step 3. Steven Alan + Chucks, however, should be everyone’s uniform for spring!

Green Day

green

Truth: we’ll get excited about any holiday that demands thematic attire. As such, Rachel was preparing her St. Patrick’s Day outfit when she found herself overwhelmed with shoe options. When, season after season, you live on the 2L side of the chucking rainbow, you find that by March 17 your collection contains a variety of greens. So, as you’re putting the finishing touches on your St. Pat’s ensemble, know that we’re here for you head to toe.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Birthday Chucks

blog_neongreen

RACHEL’S BIRTHDAY EDITION:

THE NEON GREEN CHUCK

In 2008, it was Marc Jacobs clown tees. In 2009, it was a flashing pink ring courtesy of Kristin. And in 2010, it’s the neon green Chuck Taylor hi-top. Yes, I’m someone who likes to celebrate my birthday with a fashion statement. But here’s the thing: I certainly don’t like to celebrate alone, and anyone who knows me knows that I’m a much better gift-giver than gift-receiver. So, MY birthday gift to YOU is $5 off these neon green Chucks, both for men and women, throughout my entire birthday weekend! It’s birthday present enough for me to spend my day with my little birthday bunnies, Becca, Ricky, & Stephen, but this way you can join us!

And although I love spending my birthday each year with my own little 2L family, I can’t help but miss the Chucks on the feet of my family spread across the country, whether it’s Adam’s enamel blue, Mikey’s white hi-tops (I promise I’ll put them in the mail!), Danny’s entire Spring 2010 line-up (again, the mail thing), my mom’s buttercup yellow, or my dad’s Varvatos slip-ons. Today, I’m supposed to celebrate the day I was brought into this world, but these birthdays wouldn’t be worth celebrating if it weren’t for the family, both 2L & blood, that celebrates with me.

Happy Birthday to us all!

For the Chuckster on the Go

img_0783

Yes, friends, the contest is still on, and we’re not afraid to drop the hint that the stakes have gotten a tad higher. For now, click on the Converse tab to your right to refresh yourself on the rules and your competition. And now is the perfect time to enter, because we’ve started to receive new spring shoes and Converse by John Varvatos clothing for men, so you can put your $10 coupon to good use!

So, behold; we ring in spring with one of our personal favorites: Nashville stylist Amber Lehman. She makes others look beautiful in our clothes and somehow manages to impress us with her own beauty, both inside and out, every time she visits! And PS she’s wearing our sunglasses in the picture, too!

AMBER’S STORY

This summer, my chucks took me to Istanbul, Turkey. When I was packing, I said, “Self, you need to pick one pair of shoes that will match everything, but will be comfortable exploring 10 hours a day. You’re on the clock, Self, what’s it gonna be?” In no time, my reply was, “Of course, my black and white plaid Chucks that I got at 2L! I mean, black and white plaid, that matches everything, right?” Right. So, I wore those suckers all over Istanbul this summer for a wonderful six days of non-stop exploration.

The pic is of me and my friend Caroline with the Istanbul guide book glued to my hand like it’s my job. I didn’t want me or my Chucks to miss a single thing!
