I am exhausted, have had a full day of fashion stuff, and it is late here so I’m not posting any new catwalk reviews, I will catch up on all of this tomorrow morning. London fashion week is fun but exhausting! Here is a quick post before the onslaught of catwalk reviews!
It is obvious I love my Mom, but these shoes are one of the many reasons why I love my Mom. I have packed them for London Fashion Week, as the pregnant woman can’t wear giant, towering heels every day. I thought they were going to look very old lady or very Geneva, but with the right coat and dress, combined with the fact that I can never look Geneva even if I try, they actually look pretty nice.
My Mom gave them to me, she found them in a thrift store, probably in Surrey or something. Yup, that price tag says $4.00. And yes, they ARE real. While I can never find anything good in a thrift store, my mother has an eye for it. She can spot the hand rouleau binding of an Hermes scarf from a mile away. This is probably the only woman who has a collection of Hermès scarves that cost either upwards of $300, or less than $30. Nothing in between. It’s not fair. And these shoes are just one of many other gems she has found, including a Céline saddle bag I’ve been using a lot, and a gorgeous Ferragamo clutch. All for less than $20 each.
(And by the way, the shoes are like new.)
