Sultry early 1930s satin pumpsDecember 07, 2013
Jean Harlow-ish sultry pumps ...
Everytime when I order a new pair (or actually a new old pair) of shoes and they arrive, I think "and this is enough. Go spend your money on other things, or something, but not shoes". But I cannot keep that promise to myself cause somehow my fingers, without my knowing it - honestly - go to Etsy, Marktplaats or Ebay and álways find another pair that simply hás to be added to my ever growing collection of vintage shoes. That was cértainly the case with my latest pair of shoes; early 1930s satin shoes. You knów my obsession with the Golden Hollywood of the 1930s and these just scréamed JEAN HARLOW to me. I had to have them - it was easy as that. I was unreasonably impatient when I saw, after a week, that the seller hadn't posted them yet, so I emailed her. She kept apologizing and posted them that very same day. I felt reaaaally terrible when I opened the package and saw that she added vintage seamed stockings along with the shoes for free to emphazise her apologies. Grrrr ... I become so unreasonable when it's about shoes and waiting for packages. I am like a little spoilt kid that cannot patiently wait for packages to arrive; yes that's the unmannerliness side of me. I know ... it's terrible.
But anyway, my Jean Harlow-ish shoes! I bet you are curious, aren't you?
