broken shoes = broken heart



Dearest brown leather shoes. All the brown flat leather shoes I own ... why do you have to fall apart on me? The pair above is on the fritz, the pair below is d-e-a-d. You're the only type of shoes I want to wear. And I can't find anything to replace you with.
My heart is breaking for the next four months, now that summer is here....



(does anyone know of any stores that have similar pairs? I don't care how much they are - if they'll last me, I'll pay a pretty penny!)

SERIOUSLY.
I've been looking for brown t-straps and just brown flat sandal-y type shoes forever now.

I usually have boxes and boxes of shoes sitting around waiting to go into the store. I'll check to see what I have. What size do you wear?

beth: thanks for the reminder! I seem to always forget that Urban Outfitters carries good shoes!

Emma said...

I can never find them. : ( I've always been envious of yours!

P.S. Check your flickr mail :)

oh, that is horrible to hear. i just bought the urban outfitters pair because none of the surrounding thrift stores have the woven flats. UO was close enough, plus i work there!

Lily said...

those t-straps! Oh my!
I feel for you :(

Betty Lou said...

oh i love your skirt. i guess it's vintage.

Emily said...

oh dear! that first pair is my favorite! they first made me cry because they were not on my feet. now i cry with you for no one can. great shoes can be very hard to come by.

Sally Jane said...

Argh... everything I have right now seems to be an 8 and with vintage sizing running small I'm afraid they wouldn't do. If I find anything promising I'll let you know. :)

I'm not sure if they'd fit but they are perfect for summer :)

The little tapestry bag is so sweet.

not quite the same vintage charm, but for modern day cheapies, they might do:
