I love me a good antique store. I mean I really love it. However, antique stores are like Chinese restaurants. There are a billion of them and only a few good ones. You have to hunt them out. It takes time and patience.
My mother-in-law discovered a gem. They have unique stuff. Not junk. Special, one-of-a-kind like items.
I hyperventilated a little when I spotted these shoes and saw that they were my size. According to the owner of the shop, they were part of a whole ensemble but the dress and clutch went home with a women who wasn't a size eight. The shoes stayed right where they were, waiting for me.
They make me feel pretty and stylish and fancy, these shoes. I haven't worn them out yet, but I have worn them around the house, you know, when I need a little lift. Like when I do the dishes and such. No, I'm not kidding. Some times I wear them with my pajamas.
Isn't it funny how an item of clothing or an accessory can change the way you feel? For me, it's like music. What I wear and listen to, determines how I feel at that time. It's like magic.
I saw this head dress on Emma Lamb's blog. It is from ban.do. It has sold (for $300 if you can believe that), so I think I will try to make one similar.
And now I just need somewhere to wear my sexy sling backs and feathered headband. Is it too over the top for church? Tell me true.
