By this point in winter, I'm sick of boots. Sure, I'll wear them to and from my car, but after that it is "All impractical shoes, all the time." There's only so much you can do to accessorise a coat, and eventually it makes sense to start looking at feet.
Two necklaces, blah , blah, blah...let's see some shoes!
Another pair of vintage Peacock's dyeable shoes. I wonder, were they to match a prom dress, or a bridesmaid's? You can't go wrong with royal blue, it looks good on nearly everyone. Makes me a bit sad I can't know what the dress was like. I see dye-to-match shoes quite a bit in the thrifts, but I won't buy them unless it is a comfortable shoe. So many of them are made to be worn once, and they're awful. What a way to ruin an evening wearing shoes that pinch and rub. Peacocks don't do that-they're good shoes that you wouldn't mind wearing after the event. The bridesmaid dress might be another story.
The bright green and pale blue are Bakelite, the rest are more recent. Together, they kind of work.

Fragrance-Marni, Rose (unless you adore Bulgarian rose, keep your distance. This one is STRONG. Lots of wood notes as well. I rather like it, but Danny thinks it smells like disinfectant).
I was in Walgreen's today (as I am many days as there's one across the street from me) and I tried out their new line of cosmetics exclusive to Walgreen's, Nonie Creme. I must say that I wouldn't have bothered were it not for the woman they employ in the cosmetics department, Lori. If you can get yourself to the Walgreen's at 90th and Dodge in Omaha, go see her-she's great. No hard-sell, honest opinions, and she's a genuinely nice person. From my son's acne issues to my dry skin, I know who to turn to for help, so if Lori thinks the Nonie Creme line makes good foundation for
I'm going to try and showcase more of my, "Fancy" shoes that don't get nearly enough time on the blog. If Mr. ETB won't take me anyplace smart, I'll just have to wear them to Walgreen's. Some people do drugs, I do shoes.
Hope your Monday is treating you well.
