A couple of weeks ago I was invited to a shoe party…
Shoes, Shoemakers and the People Who Love Them
Shoemaking has a long history and one that is rich in tradition. Within the trade itself–among shoe and bootmakers–the legends, the traditions, and the history really begin with St. Crispin. St. Crispin is the patron saint of shoemakers. Since medieval times, October 25th has been celebrated as St. Crispin’s Day and the Shoemaker’s Holiday. In the past, boot and shoemakers traditionally closed their shops on this day, in celebration and commemoration.
It was different, it was fun – fancy shoes, and fab’ people.
So, when I the next day was going for a quick errand to look for a wig for Halloween – I couldn’t help seeing anything but… shoes. And the irresistible ones.
Seldom have I had so much fun as in those shoes. (Kudos to Dennise at LF Union Street and Jeffrey Campbell.) I guess it is true..
You cant always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you just might find, you get what you need.

And continuing the theme of car campaigns from yesterday – I am sure I was the only hippie walking around with a Mercedes-Benz logo on my arm… ;O So authentic. Peace out.
