So, ogle these shoes with me. Aren't they dreamy? Some of you long-term readers may remember them from this post back in May: I bought them from a burlesque dancer. I've been hanging onto them because they fit me and they're so perfect, but... every time I plan to wear them in real life, I walk around for a few minutes and end up putting them back in the closet. They're a bit tight on my toes, and the heels are almost 3 inches. I feel silly wearing them!
It is a sad story. But now they're up for sale! To be entirely honest, I didn't know they were really vintage at first. They look brand new, but they're by Johansen -- a quick Etsy search will show you some other gorgeous vintage shoes by the same company!
Here's what I learned from my research:
- The Johansen company has been making shoes since 1876.
- They are now owned by a company that makes the standard Oxford shoes for all branches of the US military.
- Johansen also produces the Paradise Kittens brand, a pair of which can be seen here!
I'm going to try to get around to adding some actual clothes to my shop this week as well. Hope everyone's week is off to a good start!
