Hello Beautiful SOULmates

As many of you already know, I've been thrift shopping ever since I was a little girl. My first thrift experience was with my grandmother, and I have been hooked ever since.

In the past I had one rule-NO BUYING SHOES.  I just couldn't imagine wearing shoes that were once worn/sweated in by someone else.*Grrrrossss* That is until I laid my eyes on a pair of Christian Louboutin. I quickly got over it, and here is how. I use shoe pads, these can be purchased at any major drug store or get you can get them free from Nordstrom-just ask any sales associate in the shoe department. Of course these shoe pads only can only be with close toe- pumps, wedges, or boots.

What to do if they are open toe or sandals you ask? One solution that is satisfying to my SOUL is mixing a little bleach with warm soapy water and thoroughly clean the the inside of the shoe. If the inside is leather, I use less bleach or baby wipes. I only purchase shoes that are new, look new, or gentle worn.


Lovely Leopard ankle pumps with Big Beautiful Silk bows-FOR SALE!   

These are the most adorable angle pumps I have ever laid my eyes on by the one and only Stuart Weitzman-He is the MAN! I personally own a few SW his shoes are  cute, stylish, and timeless.  The shoes for sale still have a lot of wear left in them. The previous owner was obviously a diva who took great care of her shoes. 

The bow detail is a show stopper for sure. These ankle pumps are made of leather and fur. They are a size 8 and if you are interested in purchasing please contact me.

Candy Apple Red Wedges BCBG. I just love a wedge with a statement.

"Ruff and Rugged, but I am still a lady" -Vintage Levi Leather Boots

Blue Tan with just enough gold, pretty my angle pumps.Galeries Lafayette- FOR SALE

I've never heard of this brand, but I know a good pair of pumps with I see them. Galeries Lafayette Paris is written on the shoes.

These shoes are too small for me. If you are a lucky size 39 aka US 8 contact me if you are interested in purchasing these all leather beauties.

*sell for about 189.00 new*

Of course I had to do my research. Galeries Lafayette flag ship is a 10-story located in Paris. There are a few other locations around the world, Dubi, Casablanca, Germany, and once upon a time in New York. Unfortunately the New York store was unsuccessful and closed the doors only after 3 years.

Wow, what a beautiful place to shop!

 Not so mellow yellow vintage barley worn ballerina shoes. These too are a little snug on me-FOR SALE.

Well, what do you think about my finds? I would love to hear from you.

Have a wonderful weekend and remember be kind to one another...

Always, SOULBeautiful  xoshalikaxo
