Fashion Friday: Animal Print Backpacks and Converse "Chucks" for back-to-school

You want to know THE SHOE all the kids have to have this season?

You've probably seen them around in every store, including Target.

If you shop online you'll notice things in red saying "Only 4 left".

May I present the ever-classic Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Sneakers :



I am not sure when The Twofer became aware of them. Last Spring you'll remember they fell in love with the purple Sketchers Twinkle Toes. Somehow (inner fashion sense?) they knew these would be the thing to have.

They are classic.

They Come in a variety of colors (seriously,check out this rainbow of Converse Chucks )

They are the perfect back-to-school shoe.

A Little on the WILD side

Of course what goes better with a classic shoe than a non-traditional backpack?



Bold prints are in for backpacks this year and my kids were tuned in to this fashion trend before I even had a chance to crack open the cover of this season's The New York Times: Fashion of The Times.

Again, a quick search online and many animal print backpacks are in limited supply so order one today if your daughter is pining for one!

What fun things did your kids ask for this year while shopping for school?

We LOVE the Chucks!

I really, really LOVE Jansport bags. I bought a couple over 20 years ago, back when I was in college and med school, and they were great about honoring their warrantee (?sp). When a zipper broke or a fabric tore, they replaced the bag completely.

But, as with all good things, there are limits to everything. On a recent trip to Guatemala, one of my favorite Jansport backpacks saw the end of its life. One of the seams came undone permanently.

I don't recall how long the warantee was (lifetime versus 20 years), but they did not do anything for it. Still, I got a good 20 years use out of the bag. Unfortunately for them, they had an opportunity for a "Nordstrom customer service moment" that they did not take advantage of.

Still, they are generally good quality bags, and if they still make them with the same quality and stand behind their work, they are worth paying a little extra for.

BTW, I am delighted to see "Chucks" making a comeback!
