love in a salvos store

on my turntable: nothing - just the peaceful nothingness of a quiet house.

Been getting the urge to thrift since reading Esme and the Laneway (see link under fashion and vintage) but haven't found anything I like.  I also get some of the eras mixed up, particularly some of the fashion from the 50's and 60's but I'm sure I'll learn.
I did find some great clothes I knew my daughter would look divine in - and then I spotted these:

 It was like two lovers spotting eachother across a crowded floor.

I haven't owned a pair of brown shoes for years and have forgotten how versatile they are.  I don't know if they're leather and suede or vinyl and fake suede or if they're retro, vintage or just last years model and I don't care.  All I know is that they remind me of my dancing shoes from my latin days, they're comfortable and fun!

I'm going to enjoy these!

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I do appreciate each and every one and will do my best to reply. I do apologise for the comment moderation I've been forced to put into place thanks to Mr Dark's spamming. It was not so much the spamming that bothered me - it was his appalling grammar.
