The founder of View the Vibe has officially entered her 40s and with knowledge and determination she plans on staying young on both the inside and out. Nicki’s Pick is a weekly beauty column that features Nicki’s favourite beauty products and latest discoveries for women in their 40s. These products are tried and tested by Miss Nicki, and if she lists it here you can trust that this is how she is staying young in mind, body, and spirit…
Staying young at heart can involve just about anything: beauty products, healthy habits, exercising, and even cute clothes (always tasteful of course). My latest obsession is a pair of shoes I was wearing when I was 16, and now, at 40, I am fanatic about them again.
Converse shoes are comfy, cute, and give you a very young and vibrant feeling. I haven’t really been into the basic ones because they remind me a little too much of my teens. But the designer versions are both gorgeous and comfortable, and if you agree with me you’ll thank me for this news…
Tomorrow, Converse globally launches its second collection with French designer Maison Martin Margiela, extending the original, evolving white overpaint concept with the Converse All Star Chuck ‘70 and Converse Jack Purcell sneakers in ultra-soft premium leather.
My choice? The All Star Chuck ’70. The supple leather transforms the stylish hightop sneakers’ interior and exterior for luxury and comfort, while the pure white staple colour emphasizes the simple beauty and silhouette of the iconic footwear.
The sneaker also features the discreet Maison Martin Margiela logo on the tongue, and both silhouettes are accented with painted and non-painted lace options. Another cool feature is that the more the sneakers are worn, the more the overpaint loosens its hold, elegantly cracking to reveal the hidden, bold color.
Love this, and tomorrow is the day they start selling globally. I for one will be ordering a pair just in time for summer – should it ever decide to make an appearance!
