A wish your heart makes
Making wishlists is easy. Going from that to the point where you actually purchase the items, is another.
I crave way too many things, so it takes some thinking to actually sort out the things I need. The item presented here was craved more than needed, but it was also an opportunity I could not pass.
It was probably last year that I heard about this collection. A friend shared the link on facebook and my eyes started to sparkle and in my head I said "I'm going to buy a pair". I could have easily set the idea aside after a few months, had I not subscribed to VANS' site to receive the latest news. And if it weren't a The Beatles collection.
The important thing here is that I absolutely adore The Beatles. I don't claim to know all about them, but I do own the digitaly remastered stereo discography that came out in 2009, plus tshirts. A pair of shoes was the next thing.
I have heard their songs all my life ("There are places I remember/All my life"), a couple of songs have been set as my alarm and my dad's ring tone is Two of Us, from the album Let it Be. I am only 23 years old, but I cannot deny the influence The Beatles have had in music but also sociologically, historicaly, even in fashion (I mean, those hairstyles and John Lennon's glasses...). This season, OYSHO has a few items with a quote from John Lennon - it's not The Beatles, but still pretty close.
I am just thrilled to have these shoes. The pictures actually do them justice concerning colours, but they're even prettier live! Perhaps an outfit post feautring them sometime soon?
