“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.”
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.
GOD I LOVE SHOES!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.

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.

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!
