If you know me at all, you’ll know that loving shoes is in my blood. When I was a little girl, I wouldn’t be able to sleep when I had a new pair of shoes so I would try them on late at night, keep them on and then crawl into bed. I know many little girls like this. It isn’t learned, it just is. I call it the Imelda Marcos syndrome. But for me, it’s not even about owning shoes. I just appreciate the craftsmanship and beauty they can offer. A really good pair of shoes can make a girl’s day.
Today, I stumbled into an awesome vintage shop whose basement was like my dream closet. This is where I met these babies which were on sale for the low, low price of $22 (my lucky number!) but I didn’t buy them. I’m a little broke at the moment but it was fine not owning them. It’s like looking at flowers and not picking them. You just leave it for someone else to admire. We had a short affair and I walked away saying that if it is fated someday and someplace when things are just right, then we’ll be together forever. I do hope we meet again!
Speaking of beauty, today is our friend Kayla’s birthday! Happy Birthday, lovely!!! This quote is for you because you certainly are marvelous :-)
"Age shouldn't affect you. It's just like the size of your shoes - they don't determine how you live your life! You're either marvelous or you're boring, regardless of your age." ~Steven Morrissey
For Kayla’s present, she styled and picked the charms for this personalized vintage scrabble tile necklace I made for her. I think the matching heart lock toggle closure matched really well.
