new shoes for summer

It's that time of year when I start to buy a few things for the coming season. I love Autumn and I can't wait to wear sleeves, collars, and jumpers again. If I'm lucky, I might just get some weather cool enough for wearing vintage summer dresses! Rayon in extreme heat just ain't fun..! 

Still, I am rather enjoying this somewhat cooler, but still hot, weather. I bought some new summer shoes to make the most of it, too. I wore my last pair of espadrilles so much that that I needed a new pair. I love these; I think they look so elegant, the heel height is perfect, and the ballet shoe style laces are a nice touch. I wore them for the first time today and they are SO comfortable – perfect for strolling! They also work perfectly with 1940's, 1950's and early 1960's summer styles, from the earlier peasant looks to full skirts and dresses. Pretty good for one pair of shoes, really!

Oh they are so cute! I am already buying for the new season too. Scored 6 pairs of vintage seamed stockings on ebay for $48 today. They along with my existing pairs should get me through the winter I hope!

I just found your blog earlier this week, and it has become a minor obsession to read through all your posts. I want to turn back the clock 15 or 20 years, as I fear that I would look a little ridiculous in vintage fashion. (or would I?...hmmmm....)I'll keep pondering that. But in the meantime, I'll keep enjoying your outfits, and posts. You're fabulous!
