Lately I’ve found myself shoe shopping, or rather, I would be shopping if only the current fashions suited my needs – unfortunately I seem to like almost all shoe styles up until the late ’90s and very few since then.
If only shoe designers could satisfy themselves with reproducing the back cataglogues in a range of heel heights, I would be happy.
Current shoe fashions are romancing the late ’70s to about 1981 with very flat or very high heels, and I rather wish their progress could go a bit quicker because once the early ’80s styles come around it all gets a lot better. Yesterday I noticed a pair of animal print stilettos in Wittner so I live in hope.
In the meantime I thought I’d go virtual shopping in a favourite mail order catalogue from 1941. Which of these styles do you like? There seems to be no shortage of pretty but practical shoes and even some of the slippers are charming. I’m particularly loving the lace up shoes and the ones with cut outs, and who of us doesn’t need a pair of silver dancing sandals?
