I saw myself in mirrored leather. Slipping these vintage babies on, I became a gleaming golden goddess, gliding over city concrete. At one with nature in my floral summer frock, I toss my hair, goddess like, and it falls back perfectly in place. Birds sang overhead, and I could freely wander the universe, unaffected by the din of traffic, tooting horns, car alarms and the dusty perfume of exhaust farted out by the backsides of scampering cars. As a goddess, I am immune to the mundane, the messy kitchen counters, late book return fees, and the fact I might be 15 minutes late to work. You see a goddess has not time for these trifle concerns.
A goddess gleams. And that takes up all her time.
Until you miss the bus, get a toe blister, feel tired and hungry, or decide that those dirty coffee cups ain't going to wash themselves.
Today you're viewing my own shining score: a gleaming pair of 60's era vintage "mirrored leather" strappy sandals. Their block heel made them fun to stroll about in- and I hope to get some more wear out of them before the weather turns grey. My feet did feel a bit celestial in their golden foot beds.
Last week, I posted a call for friends to share pictures of them in their metallic shoes, and I've had a great response. So much in fact, that I'm planning to do a post next week, featuring the sparkling footsies of my gleaming gal pals. So if YOU have a great pic, or blog post of you in your gold, silver, bronze or any sort of metallic shoes, please send them to me, and I'll add them to the post!
