Tales of a shoe hoarder... Episode Three

Hello all! Today I'm going to share the pair of shoes that I wore to the Porch Party hosted by Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses.

They are espdadrilles with navy and red stripes. I think I paid around $5 on ebay and they are Victoria's Secret brand. I love they way they go with this vintage 50's sailor style dress. I got that on the bay as well, under $15. Looks to be hand made, zips up the side. The original belt was missing so I just use red grossgrain ribbon. It is so fun to dress patriotic! The collar on this dress is so cute.Here are my earrings~ They are vintage and belonged to my Great Aunt Maudie. I have loved these since I was about 13~ the little red, white, and blue beads are too cute inside the heart.

Nikki, you and my daughter would get along famously. She is also crazy about shoes. I am a little crazy about them myself. The espadrilles are adorable and look even cuter on your feet.

Those are so cool! I wish I could wear shoes with a nice tall heal like that, but I'm already tall and have an awkward tendency to twist my ankle. *sigh* Love your vintage clothes! You really do look like someone right out of the 40s.

Loved your comment on Rue's latest post. I like coming by your blog because you are so fun! You have a great eye for pretty things and you have the most awesome vintage dresses. You have an amazing sense of humor too! Plus I like hearing about how you are fixing up your home because I love older houses. Have a great day!
