Have you ever loved a pair of shoes so much, you've used a glue stick to try and fix them? Multiple times? That's how I feel about these babies.
earrings- flea market, tank top- Old Navy, blazer- F21, skirt- Urban Outfitters, shoes- Vintage
I originally purchased them for my "Sophomore Banquet", my sophomore year in high school. And proceeded to win a "Best Shoes" Oscar (old Hollywood theme) for them.
I had to put this picture in here. There I am with my Oscar, looking like a baby teenager. Note my best friend Jenae in the background.
Since then, these shoes have become the coolest and most fragile pair I own.
They are quite literally falling apart. I was pretty embarrassed to even wear these today, but I had to wear them one more time before I threw them out. Farewell, shoes that I love, shoes that have won me awards and jealous glances, you have done well.
Also notable is that these pictures are taken on campus, where everyone could see me! I was confident! Does this make me a respectable fashion blogger?
Oh my gosh, wait. Didn't I wear like this exact same outfit last week? Uhh, yeah, awkward. At least I'm not pretending at the things I like to wear.
Hunter was not very torn up about the shoes. He said "They look like they've served you and several others very well." Today I tried to explain to him why vintage was so cool. Boys!
