May I introduce my newest pair of all white sneakers: the classic and full of history: Jack Purcell.

Since I saw this exact same sneakers on my friend Omar last summer I have been lusting like crazy over a pair. He is a big inspiration for me, since he is one of the only individuals on earth that shares my exact same taste for clothes…and life! Unfortunately in Spain they were only available for order online, and I almost ordered them before my trip, but at the end I didn’t and i’m so glad. The sizing is small compared to the All Star model so ordering online was a big no, no for these. Luckily for me in Chile these sneakers are available to buy in all the Converse stores. So of course the second I saw them, I went for them in a blink of an eye.

For all of you wondering about the history behind these sneakers, i’ll tell you a little bit about them. The Jack Purcell sneakers are an old classic from Converse that has recently been re-launched (think something in the line of Adidas Stan Smith model or the famous Superstar). They are named after Canadian badminton player John “Jack” Purcell. He designed these sneakers as early as 1935, and Converse purchased the rights for them in 1970s and has been selling them ever since. You can say owning a pair of these, is owning a piece of history.

Mis nuevas zapatillas blancas, un clásico de Converse el modelo Jack Purcell.

Desde el verano pasado, cuando las vi en mi amigo Omar que me enamoré de estas zapatillas, desafortunadamente en España no las vendían en ninguna parte, solo por internet. Casi las compro antes de viajar, pero me alegro de no haberlo hecho ya que el tallaje en este modelo es distinto al de las famosísimas All Star. Por suerte para mi, en Chile las venden en todas las tiendas Converse, así que nada mas verlas fui a por ellas, y aquí están!

Ahora si os estáis preguntando cual es la historia tras estas zapatillas os la contaré. Son un modelo antiguo de Converse que recientemente ha sido re-lanzado para volver a darle la popularidad de antaño (algo parecido a lo que hizo Adidas con las Stan Smith y las Superstar). Su nombre es en honor a su creador el jugador y campeón mundial de badminton John “Jack” Purcell que las diseño nada mas ni nada menos que en 1935 lo que hace de estas zapatillas todo un pedazo de historia. Converse compró los derechos en la década de los setenta y las venden desde entonces, en varios colores y variaciones.

Si estáis pensando en comprar un par os dejo los sitios donde podéis hacerlo online.






No olvidéis pedir una talla mas grande!

Something New: Rag & Bone slip on sneakers

Slip on sneakers are one of the most comfortable options in the whole world. I only own a pair, with this pair it makes two, and I think I could never have enough. They are so comfortable and so versatile that they can be worn with absolutely anything. I was thinking on white first, looking at a bunch of brands, but when I saw this gorgeous ecru color, I was sold! I think white can wait, but for w ...

Black and white sneakers…together with my all white sneakers they are by far my favorite. Today I am sharing with you three of my pairs…and now that I think I could do a sneaker collection post but I would definitely need a studio and a long white roll for that because they don’t fit displayed in any space of my tiny apartment. ——————— ...

This sneakers need no introduction, they are a classic among classics. I used to own this same model on the early 2000’s. But of course I was not the only one, everyone at school owned a pair, girls and boys. I remember some of my classmates had them with the stripes in so many different colors, I on the other hand had one of the classics, the all black with white stripes, just the opposite ...

Something New: Chloé scalloped flats

For the longest time (you can see a post about it HERE), I have wanted to get myself this beautiful pair of classic black flats. They are a great alternative to my Chanel and very iconic piece that can be perfect with any outfit at any moment of time. Finally for spring I decided to go for them and I am so, so happy I did. Spring is definitely the best time to buy flats, it’s still not sanda ...

I don’t really know if this shoes should be called wedges or chunky heels, but either way they are a fabulous pair footwear that is really comfortable.

Something New: Celine Tailor Sunglasses

So I had been needing a new pair of sunglasses for a while, I was bored with my three classic options (plus a very special pair in gingham I hardly use). I wanted a still classic design, but in tortoiseshell frames. I did have a few options on my wishlist, but this one made it to number one. The reasons? Quality, classic design, and most of all the actual design of the tortoiseshell print. I know ...

Something New: J.Crew leopard print slides

New in: J.Crew leopard slides! I bet you never thought you would see me wearing leopard print! Well, now you will! I have always had this love/hate relationship with animal print in general more especially with leopard. I like it only on a few garments, it is a classic print that has been used in clothing since forever, and it’s never in or out, just like everything I like, it is a permanent ...

I’ve been lusting over a few bags for a long time, one of them is this amazing beauty, the Lulu bag from Saint Laurent. I love the simple, clean design, with gold hardware and its slim rectangular shape. I don’t have a bag in this format, so this is what has been missing in my bag collection…well…and bags other than black and navy, but I guess I’ll solve that in the f ...
