Probably like most of you, I have a serious "issue" (addiction, lust - call it whatever you want) with shoes...mine just seems to focus on beauties from the 1930s/1940s - oh the lines, the detailing, the superb construction (most are still very wearable - and danceable - even though they're 70+ years old!). And, like a proud parent, I wanted to show off a couple of pairs that are new to my ever growing shoe family.
An amazing pair of 1930s Art Deco pumps. The upturned/squared toe on these almost makes me cry with joy. I have such a "shoe crush" on these that I carried them around with everywhere I went for a couple of days after I got them (yes, I know...strange).
A striking pair of late 1930s/early 1940s fire engine red peep toes. While a fairly common style, the color and the beaded detailing make these special.
I haven't yet decided if these lovelies will go into the shop or into the vault of 1920s-1940s goodies collected for our booth at this year's Eastern Balboa Championships event.
