a shoe size 11 is no easy feat

My shoe size is 11. At 5' 9.5" tall that sounds reasonable or so I'd like to think. Finding vintage shoes that I like or at minimum that are thrifted is NOT easy. Shopping for shoes is frustratring and often a failed mission. Hence, my reason for owning only three pairs of shoes. This weekend, and maybe the next one after that, I'll be on a mission to find me a pair of lovelies. We'll see how things fare out.

Shoes I'd like to have (of course in size 11) or at minimum something that looks close to them.

shop with confidence at CovetedVintage

After typing out the title to this posting I was giggling not because it's not true but rather because I sound like a sales person which for the most part are not loved by many. Nonetheless, I decided to keep the title because I honestly believe in it. As you might know I run a small etsy shop here. I strive to source the best vintage clothes I possibly can get my hands on while keeping prices accessible to all. Recently, I received a message from a customer who ordered a skirt and was more than happy with the purchase. Later I learned that this person has one of the best vintage clothing stores in the country and was recognized by the style magazine Lucky as having one of the best fashion boutiques (exclusive not only to vintage stores). I am happy when I learn customers fall in love with their purchase from CovetedVintage and even more when I learn that they are highly respected in the fashion and/or vintage industry :)

 Some of my favorites at CovetedVintage:

I know my layout is not pleasing. I promise to change it soon.

Marilyn Monroe: Never Published Photos

I wake up this morning and the first thing I read on my computer screen is "Marilyn: Never Published Photos." I clicked away. For the full version of these photos go here.

love is everywhere

Today feels like a Monday. Hope your week is off to a great start. The world can be a mean place but in the midst of it all there is beauty and kindness to be enjoyed and shared.

I found this lovely illustration here.

lace suspenders

Lace suspenders?! Yes. They exist and I found them here. I love that the creator of these darlings sources vintage materials for here creations. I'm head over heels for these.
