Bye Bye, Birthday!


Well, I’ve stretched this birthday for as long as I possibly can, but I think it’s finally time to erase the board and welcome the new age. It was a lovely, festive birthday week. I got so many visits and messages from across the country, gifts both heartfelt and thoughtful, a dinner at PM with my 2L bunnies, and an excuse to wear neon green chucks throughout. Thanks to all of you who made my birthday special and who made me want to keep it going & going!

xoxo, rachel

And the sting of birthday being over isn’t nearly as bad given that we have a store full of new pretty things to distract me!

Birthday Chucks




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


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!


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!

As LOVEly As Can Be


The Converse Contest is still on, and we can think of no better way to say Happy Valentine’s Day than with this little tale from Zoe:


My love for bunnies and Converse led me and my older sister, Sydney to Two Elle. My first love – a pair of glittery silver Converse at the store on 12th Ave. The problem was – I was only 6 years old and they were not my size. I searched every catalog that came to the house and googled every possible website for a pair in my size. No such luck. Fast forward three years – I am still obsessed with finding the coolest Converse sneakers. Two Elle is now in The Hill Center and I dragged my parents in at the sight of all those beautiful chucks in the window. With two pairs of socks and laced tied so tight, I can “fit” into their smallest size! Yea! Every chance we get – my sister and I go and visit Rachel to talk chucks and fashion. We love everything about Two Elle – chucks, clothes, jewelry and especially the coolest person we know…RACHEL! And yes, one day, I will work at Two Elle! By: Zoe (right side)
