Shoes of green


Today my mother and I had a hair appointment in Portland, much needed for me, although I just got a trim. Going to the Salon is my time to indulge in gossip magazines and Vogues. The latest Vogue has Michelle Obama on the cover and is filled with pretty things only 0.01% of the population can afford. I saw lots of colorful wingtip shoes for women, something I love, I have a smashing pair in red. Also lots of retro looks, including these from Marc Jacobs and Missoni. The magazine was filled with so many pretty shoes afterward I suggested we go to Nordstoms Rack and see if there were any fabulous spring footwear. I tried on about a dozen pairs and squeeled when I slipped on these super fabulous super comfortable pair. Green as a a sour apple and with sweet little cutouts, they are so adorable! Not to mention the bow. Love the bow. I picture them with a pink dress with my pink petticoat underneath, and a matching green bow in my hair. Now I just have to find the dress and make the bow. Or maybe I could make the dress too! I was so surprised at the price of them, they were on sale for $31! I want to sit in an old chair in my pink petticoat and green shoes and have a tea party. With bugs. A bug teaparty, and all the bugs will wear hats and bowties. Doesn't that sound divine?

Oh, and the chair standing picture reminds me of one from Rebel Angel.

Oh! The shoes are so, so beautiful. I hope you will post the pink-and-green outfit, it sound devine. I like the sound of a bug tea party, only i hope there will be no spiders. I can't stand spiders. However i'm sure ladybirds would look so lovely in polka dot ties.

ooo i need red shoes. So bad.
I have been watching a pair on etsy, but the price is so so..

Those hats are so awesome, I told Chris the same thing, that I would see what I had left after this weekend, and that if I had it, I would buy the hat. I love it. I wore it for like an hour yesterday.

I am so excited for this weekend!!

It does sound divine! I want to come to your tea party and admire your pretty green shoe and pink dress! I won't be as well-dressed as you, but that's OK! I wish we really could!
