One of the best things about coming from a family of petite women is I get all the lovely hand-me-downs my mom used to wear when she was my age. These vintage shoes were bought by my mom back in the 80′s, and they were vintage back then…so I can only imagine how old they are now.
These got pulled out of the depths of my mom’s storage closet a few weeks ago, and I practically fainted when I saw how amazingly cute they were. They needed to be re-heeled, and the sole re-glued, but they fit me perfectly, and I happily drove home with a new pair of shoes.
It looks like the strap may have gotten burned somehow on the right shoe, which I may try and get fixed later, but for now, they’re my new favorite warm weather shoe.
I only hope all the expensive designer shoes I’ve been buying will last as long as this vintage pair, but I fear not. They just don’t make ‘em like they used to.
