Take These Sandals Please!


Because I can't. They are just too small. Aren't these the cutest sandals you have ever seen? And they're vintage! They're not new even though they look very contemporary. These size 5ish (waaah) sandals, are probably from the 1960s, maybe even the '50s. They're from Italy too, which just adds to the allure. I just adore the little tiny leather bows on the straps, and the Neapolitan ice cream colors. I could see these lovely little shoes with a white linen or blue chambray sleeveless jumper. However, it's too painful to think about a pair of shoes that don't fit me. I mean, what's the point? They're too small. I tried them on, testing them out on the linoleum floor at Viva Vintage. Luckily I didn't go flying across the slick surface. Alas, one look in the mirror told me these sandals were meant for another Cinderella. So, go, please to Viva Vintage and buy these shoes if you have small feet. By the way, I have no idea what they cost (I don't pay attention to such things when shoes don't fit), but they have to be a great deal considering a bought a never-worn 1950s Kamehameha skirt at the store for $30...
