queenelizabeth 's Thoughts:

So I realized that I never posted a picture of these shoes I got at Savers before Thanksgiving, which is probably because I’ve never worn them. They’re a size 7.5 and I’m a 10, which means I can sort of shove my foot most of the way inside them and hobble around for a little while before I give up and take them off. And I bet I would ruin them if I ever wore them outside – they’re so perfectly white and clean, and they look like they’ve never even been worn.

I recognized the brand name inside the shoe (Special Occasions by Saugus Shoe… I always see dyed-to-match prom shoes by the same company at thrift stores. It’s basically just as awful and tacky as it sounds.) and so I did a little research, hoping to find a similar shoe in my size. That’s when I realized I had stumbled across a very specific, niche-market type of shoe known as bridal boots. I don’t know why anyone would wear boots at their wedding, especially some of the lace cowboy-boot versions I saw (how does that even work???). But I did like the Victorian look of some of the styles offered, which looked like the ones I’m wearing. Eventually I ended up on a Victorian costume-supply website with tons of crazy and awesome shoes and… where was this story going? I’m not really sure. Never mind.

But anyway, I did a lot of post-holiday shopping today (aka taking advantage of the weak economy) and I’ll post those pictures tomorrow.

P.S. The 2nd photo is the shoes I actually wore (brown oxfords.)
