What: Vintage Gina court shoes (thrifted)
When: Friday, January 14, 2011
Where Date night
With: Black ASOS dress
For Shoeper Shoe Challenge # 69, I present my vintage Gina court shoes, which I picked up in a thrift store a few years ago for all of £1.50. Yes, they’re completely 80s-tastic, but since they’re actually from the 80s, I think I can forgive them for it. Did I mention they were £1.50?
(This is the great things about thrift stores: they’ll mark a pair of Calvin Klein “mom” jeans up, because they recognise the label as being “designer”, but a brand like Gina will go unnoticed, because the staff have never heard of it: score for shoe fans!)
I wore a simple little black dress with these. I should probably warn you in advance of the remaining Shoe Challenge posts that I’m wearing a lot of black right now. I just can’t seem to get inspired in January.
(Also, the eagle-eyed among you may notice an addition to my shoe shelves. Yes. More on that latter…)
The shoes were actually in pristine condition when I bought them (even I wouldn’t buy a pair of worn shoes!), so the wear and tear you see here is all my own work. I used to wear these quite often with jeans a few years ago, but these days they don’t see much use.
Only five more pairs to go!
