Bear with me for a little self-indulgence here about my shopping/clothes fetishes. I’m having a little fall season shoe love going on here and not a lot of outlet for it. I can’t really justify buying any (although I really, really want to). Don’t need them, and don’t, honestly, have any place to wear them, but I have a soft spot for vintage-victorian-inspired shoes. I craved shoes like these in high school, but was hard pressed to ever find any a) in my size, b) appropriate for school wear, or c) that I could afford. Sometimes I don’t feel that far from high school.
