The world's most beautiful shoes
Thursday, July 12, 2007
My mother owned these shoes in the 50's and 60's. They're red velvet with satin heels and bow, with rhinestones on the bow. As a kid, I adored these shoes and my mother would let me play dress-up with them. I couldn't wait to grow into them and imagined myself wearing them to fancy dinners and dancing after, maybe even having a matching red velvet dress like my mother's to go with the shoes. That dream came to a screeching halt when I outgrew the shoes around the age of 10. My mother's feet are itty bitty, mine are... well, let's just say not so much. But hey, I'm 5'7" and she's 5'2". I'd fall over in a size 5 shoe. Well, I can't wear the shoes, but they have a place of honor in my closet. Beautiful to look at, no matter what the size.
