Tales of a shoe hoarder...Episode Five...


I'm WAY behind on my shoes tales!! I'm going to cheat and show you three pair at once, since I already have the photos!

Pair #1 is a cute red gingham platform in a modern style with a vintage pinup girl in mind. These are Guess brand and I got them on clearance at Burlington Coat Factory last year for $25.

Pair #2, adorable black patent Mary Janes, with a spectator look. They are made by UnionBay. I got those at Burlington as well. I don't remember how much, but it had to be under $20.

Last but not least~ My Marie Antoinette shoes. I RARELY pay over $20 for shoes...and even MORE rarely pay over $40 (unless they're vintage). But I had to have these beauties. I haven't even worn them yet, but since I want to revamp my wedding gown into a Marie Antoinette inspired frock, I'm sure I'll be wearing them with that. There had better be a good Halloween party this year! Unfortunately I cannot remember the maker... and I should because I about burned my eyeballs out searching the internet for them.
Ah! Hold on.... it's all coming back to me now! Ellie brand.
Here's a link, tho it's not where I found mine. They have the blue, cream, black, and PINK! I really adored the pink ones, but felt the blue looked more French.



I found my shoes at 3 Wishes. No, I was not there shopping for naughty lingerie, *snort*... I was looking at this! I purchased my "Naughty" Scarlett costume on ebay for MUCH less. But I have to say, it's worth it because the green floral sprigs on the fabric ARE replicas of the orignal dress, tho not to scale. But, that's a whole 'nuther story! (I'll think about that tomorrow!)

Ohhh, I love the red platforms. So Sweet. I used to wear "Candies" platforms, back in the day. I would have loved these.

I love 'em all! I love the I Want Candy montage in the Antoinette movie. The costuming is stunning in that one.

Hi Nikki,

Thank you for visiting my blog! You asked about the color of my door, it is Sherwin Williams paint and the color is Rosemary (SW 6187). It is a very beautiful green. We have a large living room and that is the color on the walls with white trim. It's very, very soothing, and looks great in the day and evening. We're very happy with the color!

Love the shoes!! I love the blue Marie Antoinette ones - I don't think I'd wear them except as a costume, but aren't they absolutely perfect for that? As for the Naughty Scarlet Costume - Whoo!

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

I love them all and admit to having a pair very similar to those black ones. Now, the red are something I may be looking for myself :0). Ah, shoes. sigh*

Traci said...

Ok, my sister is NOT moving to TEDELY....don't ask me where my mother got THAT name....it is really the Pendley?...south of St. Louis...wait til I tell my mom...I'm sure that town doesn't even exist. lol...

Traci said...

Sheesh, I don't know what happened on my pics....I think I got it fixed, now you can see the black and white one....I HOPE. :)

Jaede said...

Hmmmm............ I'm sure that costume wasn't in the movie....hehe........ it's really cute and the shoes, Oh how I love shoes !!!!

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

Awesome shoes! They are really pretty!

Better be careful if you get the Naughty Scarlett outfit. You could end up giving Nova a little brother or sister! lol

It is awesome though. Stuff like that keeps the fire in a marriage!
