These are just so pretty and Spring-y that they’re my choice for this holiday. With embroidered flowers and a good dose of green, they stand above plain colors today.
I love the fact that they’re in such good condition – it’s always a treat to see the names of small, privately-owned shoe stores printed inside, as was often done in the mid-century. This was true of clothing, hats and purses, too.
Pretty shoes like this just don’t seem to be made anymore. The vintage-style substitutes just don’t make the grade. And, of course, these are 100% leather excepting for the fabric uppers.
So, trip off to a party or the light fantastic just like a fairie . … . . . . . . . … .

I love embroidered shoes!
So do I – they’re SO special! And, when they’re really well-made like these, they can last (almost) forever. I hate to say good-bye to clothing that I love and that’s one really good thing about true vintage, because the styles and the workmanship endure.
