My pretty shoes

Inspired by Iffer’s Little Nest blogpost on Pretty Shoes, I was reminded of my two pairs, one mine and one for Little Miss Me-Too.

I can’t fit my pair (and bought it for $7 anyway) because I didn’t mean for them to be worn… but to be displayed in my “boudoir” :) It’s not expensive, it’s not over the top… it’s just beautiful to me.

And of course Hannah has to have her pair. It’s pretty… for formal events only. (Which is why it’s high up on her dresser… everything else gets shlumpped in the sandpit.

    I looove that you just put these shoes on display, they look fabulous and it’s inspiring me to do something very similar for my dressing table!
