Vintage Pinup Shoe With A Modern Twist



Some people buy loads of magazine every month and I am not one of those people. I have two magazines that I buy on a regular basis and they are Allure and LOU LOU. I buy Allure for the makeup trends and new products reviews and LOU LOU is for the fashion which is Canadian friendly. In the latest issue of LOU LOU magazine I was flipping through and I saw a pair of shoes that stopped me dead in my tracks. When that happens......game over! I am rarely wowed by shoes, they need to speak to me before I pull out my wallet. I tracked them down by calling up 4 stores and put them on hold and picked them up the next day. Marciano Guess is the designer I am so happy that I have them in my possession. I can't wait to wear them with dark jean or walking shorts.

These shoes are vintage looking with a pinup peeptoe look to them. I am a big fan of vintage pieces and I love the snakeskin design and the wooden heel. Actually, its the heel that cinched the deal. This type of pinup shoe with the modern twist is very versatile because you can wear it with so many colours and patterns and it doesn't really have to match because they are a stronger piece in your wardrobe arsenal and can stand alone. I'm walking around the house with these on today, influenza or not and I feel like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. Clickety-click!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous! I'm the same about magazines, I only ever buy InStyle monthly...that's really all I could afford, plus with websites now on there's really no point! xoxo

P.S. As you can see I haven't quite left the computer yet, LOL!
