The other day I popped into one of my favorite vintage shops, Hollywood Babylon. I hadn’t been in in awhile, and peeked about to see what was new and I ended up coming home with a skirt and a pair of shoes. The shoes I had been drooling over for ages, but they were pricey. Heck, they were by Re-Mix, so of course they were! But Bridget had marked them down, since it was her last pair, and they just happened to be my size. So I took ‘em home.
Re-Mix has gotten a name for itself by creating period perfect shoes that have become favorites for vintage lovers and swing dancers alike since they are dead-ringers for vintage shoes from the 1920s through the 1940s, but since they are new, they come in every size! Since a common problem regarding vintage shoes is that they are often tiny. Even finding a size 7 is difficult! What is super swell about these is that they are all leather – inner, outer and sole! So they’ll last me a good long while.
Now that I actually own a pair, I kind of only want to own Re-Mix shoes…Patrick said if I want, he’ll buy me two pairs a year…one for my birthday and one for Christmas. I certainly have my eye on the tooled leather ones!
