Let's Chat Shoes...







These are certainly some of my favorite shoes of All Time !

I've had them for a few years, and while I was desperately hoping that I would get a Wasting Disease so I could fit them (a size 6, which I haven't seen below my ankles since 1999)...
I'm now thinking ...that won't happen for several more years...I do believe when I hit 75 I will shrink...but at 75 I am just not sure I'd want to wear them....(who am I kidding...)

So, for sale on etsy they are....

The last time I saw a pair that were for sale they were listed by Marlene (Rhiannon)! Liebemarlene Vintage, that is....I believe hers were the same size, but had damage...And they were Still Cute !! and here's a picture of her and her Vivier's.


I love everything about them....70s, platforms, ANKLE STRAPS...leather, navy....slightly weird, but not tooo....and made by.....
Roger Vivier...a shoe master, inventor of the modern Stiletto heels in 1954, ladies.
Would Pam Anderson or Paris Hilton have a career without Stilettos? No, I think not.

Here's a few pics of Vivier shoes...past and present...





He designed the iconic Pilgrim buckle shoe for Catherine Deneuve for the French movie, 1967's Belle du Jour....
One of the last issues of Domino magazine (wahh) featured...Ines de la Fressange,muse of the current house of Roger Vivier....who designed the Pilgrim shoe to go with the Yves St. Laurent wardrobe for Belle du Jour.
Small World.



the young Yves....
