etsy shoe show-down

When it comes to buying shoes on the internet, two things in particular make my life hard: 1) I have no money to buy shoes on the internet, and 2) I have yet to master the zen art of mentally morphing my feet larger or smaller at will. Bummerrrr.

Despite this handicap, there is nothing I enjoy more than spending precious prime Sunday evening homework hours looking at pretty vintage shoes online. So here, I offer you a mouthwatering (foot-watering?) selection of "shoes I would buy on etsy if they were my size and I had several dollars at my disposal."





Soooooooooooooo prrrrrreeeeeeeeeeetttttttttttttyyyyyyyyyyy.

Top: wedge heeled oxford from Pretty Little World; Mezzanine (clockwise from top left): Ferragamo pumps from NSTYLEVINTAGE; spotted booties from ambrosia; vintage Candie's wedges from Vintage Revolver; suede platform ankle boots from Cookies & Creme; Bottom: stacked heel fringe pumps from new duds.

Ahaha, "foot watering" made my day. Those shoes are amazing... If any of them would have been large enough to fit my mammoth feet, I would be in there like swimwear.

melly said...

I waste alot of time on etsy too, dang! Neat finds, i wish they were without any inches on the heels. I look like a tranny in heels, so unfortunate :{

NStyle said...

I Looooove it all

THANKS for the feature

The two suede pair are amazing!!

sarah/sherbet tone said...

So, I was just curious - did the shoes I sent you fit? Because they are a seven and a half, but a vintage seven and a half, so I was not sure if it'd be kosher? I really hope so, but if not I know how that goes.

sarah said...

clairegrenade said...

great blog, dahhling!

jimmy said...

i really love your sense of style - and how it's sort of in line with but somewhat undermines what everyone else is wearing. great photos!

WendyB said...

Cute shoes.

left hand endeavor said...

i really adore your blog and read it quite religiously. this is why i've decided to tag you despite the fact that i've always been too shy to tell you how much you inspire me! go check it out!!

Ringo, have a banana! said...

Thanks so much everyone! Jimmy, that is one of the best compliments I think I've ever received. And left hand, don't be shy! That's ridiculously sweet of you, and even though I usually don't respond to such taggings (not that I don't appreciate it, I just forget!) I really like that one, it's nice and short but still interesting. Perhaps I'll actually fill one out this time!

I'm so bad about buying shoes that are the wrong size just because they are pretty. Mostly I do it at thrift stores when they're about 1/2 size too small. I try to convince myself that they'll stretch even though the logic behind that is a little fuzzy since they're probably already stretched...

Anyways, I love the last pair a lot. Ironically, they're half a size too small for me.

Aimée said...

I love all of these shoes. Sadly I can't buy vintage shoes on the internet either given that my right foot is half a size bigger than my left. I have to try on both the 7 1/2 and 8 pair at regular stores to get the best fit. So I join in with your online shoe buying sadness. :(

Isabel said...

They're all brown. I love brown shoes.

clareassiral said...

yikes i love the wedge in the first photo! but its freaking tiny!

annie and carlotta said...

sorry for the late comment but oh my gosh i totally understand where you are coming from! i am average size, 8-8.5 and it seams that all the shoes i fall in love with are around size 5-5.5 vintage sizing!! for example

What is with peoples feet evolving 2 meters longer in the past century!

p.s ive read your blog for a long while now but never got around to commenting! i have you linked if thats ok.

copperoranges said...

i LOVE your picks. you do have fabulous taste.

Airam said...

Wow, a blog that I actually want to read, not just skim over and look at the pretty pictures! (though I must say your pictures are pretty good too...)

I love your hair, especially on the picture with the goat! Please tell me it comes in a box..?

Ringo, have a banana! said...

Haha, you're in luck airam, as it does indeed! I use Herbal Essences Bold 'n Beautiful Color in #54 Amber Shimmer. Quite a mouthful, but it sure gets the job done!

Oh and thanks for the link annie, I shall reciprocate :n )

Airam said...

No, really? I am too lucky! Now the only problem will be that I'm a dark brunette, and will probably look absolutely horrible as a blonde :p But thank you so much anyway!

CARLOTTA & ANNIE said...

i fell your pain! i have a handbag, it was unclear to me at the time, what i was buying into. second hand but that doesn't change the fact the leather is emu skin! i think pony skin also has a disturbing ring to it. if its second hand i think there is a way to forgive your self. i mean i call myself vegetarian.. leather has a way of repulsing me. but if the skin is there, the animal has already died and at least our re-loving of this poor thing, gives it abit of a prolonged second life?? thats how i look at it

Carlotta commented earlier (this double blogging gets confusing) i feel like i need to clear up whos who, else i feel like a weird identity theft

CARLOTTA & ANNIE said...
