Amazing 40's Shoes



These are a 6.5 if you want to bid on them. They are the perfect 40's wedge height with amazing primary tri-colors (a sandal theme later repeated in the 80's- these are cute too) and high-up ankle straps, and even come with a cute original box.



These gorgeous 40's snakeskin platforms look so 70's glam rock. Lately I've been thinking about how the 70's copied the 30's a lot, from platforms to wide leg pants to little house dresses. I recently saw a photo of Ava Gardner at her 1930's-era senior prom and she was wearing a dead-ringer for a 70's maxi dress. It would be nice if I could find that photo, but I can't. Anyway, these are my size, but I'm expecting them to go pretty high. So damn fierce!

Oh my, I love those primary color ones! Too bad I have huge feet. I've been meaning to make my own pair of rainbow colored sandals, this reminds me to get on that.

I was just going to use vinyl friendly paint markers on a pair of thrifted white "man-made" leather sandals. Might not look A+ right up close, but I'd be okay with that. I used metallic paint markers on a similar pair last year and they've held up okay. I have heard you can dye true leather, or paint it, but you need a certain type specific for leather.
