I recently procured these shoes for tuppence or something like that.
I wish very much to be a proper Lady one day and wear women's shoes without looking like a five year old who's just raided her mums wardrobe.

Being a short-arse means that most high heels are way out of proportion to the rest of my munchkin body. But Hooray! I found these shoes that fit my Chimp feet and also make me look a bit lady like, and also like Dolly Parton in 'Working Nine to Five' as these are indeed from the glorious early 80s so, about the same age as myself...we are made for each other!

However, they are a size too big, and in a rather 'pre-loved' condition, but I don't care...they are made in England and that makes me feel all sentimental about preserving their history.
I actually came in to work today (Saturday) as we have to finish the new collection, I was going to take a picture of my desk, it is, without a doubt, the most messy desk you will have ever seen. I bet you would all think terribly of me if you saw it, and wonder how anything useful could be born from such a work surface!
I have to use a mirror on my desk when designing the jewellery to make sure of length etc is right... I just end up looking at my wrinkles most of the time though...

Happy weekend everyone, hope you are enjoying your nice relaxing afternoon...no please, don't feel guilty...


  1. hey! those shoes look great! not even a hint of chimp! that mirror might be magic, everything always looks wonderful in it.

    it's still the weekend tomorrow - hope you get a chance to enjoy it!

  2. So cute shoes!!
    Thanks so much for your kind comment. I swear I am worse than a kid. Really bummed now I didn't have the Passport Book for the Grand Canyon. I'd love to see a little hedgehog some day. Are there any little hedgies left???
    : )

  3. I have very similar vintage Pappagallo shoes in red..but I have yet to make them work on my Flintstone feet!! Your feet look fine in your wonderful shoes..now step away from the mirror!

  4. hey - did you get my email? i am worried i sent it to the wrong address.

  5. Great shoes! Truly great.

    (wrote this as a comment in response to yours on my blog, but realised you might not see it!)

  6. Being a lady? So overated! The shoes look way cooler with your zippy jeans than a knee-length pleated skirt as they probably were worn in their previous life...

  7. Big love for those shoes!

    Great blog. I'm glad I found it :)
