I'm proud to announce that I found my converse. I have been searching for it everywhere, and I finally found it in the mkhukhu (in the backyard) where my mom keeps storage of everything "useless until we need it".
My uncle got me this pair when I was 15, I will not calculate how long ago that was... just know its a very long time. :p
With them I am wearing a floral bustier from Meltz and denim high waist shorts from Jay Jays.
