Librarian chic

Um, these shoes are kind of a big deal. 



Are they a bit old lady? A bit librarian? A bit 1942? You bet they are! That's why they're so awesome! I saw them at a small-town thrift-store and swooned. 


They are perfect for my schoolmarm look, but sadly, I don't actually want to wear them to school as they have these things called heels. Heels are no good for days spent standing. Just a little wisdom from me to you. Standing and heels = not friends.

Oh yeah .. Those are very nice!

I'm with you on the standing and heels. Actually for me that would also include walking and heels. I don't know how some girls do it!

Those heels are AMAZING! But I agree, standing for a long time in heels definitely can make your feet hurt!

Hahaha...I wear heels everyday, so I have just gotten to the point where I ignore the pain :P THESE HEELS ARE GORGEOUS! I can't believe you found them thrifting. I might steal them someday.

I love love those shoes. I went through a spell (yes, it was like bad magic) where I didn't wear heels for quite a while, and through vigorous training I was soon tottering all over town again. Okay, not always comfortably, but fabulously - I hope. I am a new follower! I like the squishy insole suggestion.
