I have a fatal attraction to brown shoes.
I blame it on Marlene Dietrich. She advised wearing shoes the same colour as your legs to make your legs look longer, and since my legs are basically brown, I’m seriously into brown shoes.
Brown shoes are also more historical and vintage appropriate than black shoes, at least for my favourite periods.
These are my two latest brown shoe acquisitions.
The first pair is a modern shoe, by Neo of Spain. They are super comfortable, and delightfully vintage in aesthetic. I need more 1930s inspired dresses to wear with them!
I found them on sale right after I passed a personal milestone – they were my reward for the milestone.
My second shoe acquisition is a pair of 1970s Clarks, made in England. They make my feet look tiny. I found them at my favourite thrift shop.
While they are 1970s, they also look perfectly 1930s. I definitely see where my spring 2010 wardrobe is heading!
