Radical

Today’s outfit was all about the shoes: never worn, 80’s vintage, hand-me-downs from a coworker. Unfortunately, I only wore them for a few hours before they fell apart around my feet. I’m glad I brought back-ups to work.


Dress, To The Max. Headband, Forever 21. Necklace, Macy’s. Belt, thrifted. Shoes, Radical (hand-me-downs).

I should be able to repair the shoes, though. The glue that holds the upper to the sole has merely disintegrated with age. A cobbler can paste it all back together.

Better quality vintage shoes are stitched together, instead of glued, but I can’t complain about free footwear. I’ve worn enough vintage shoes to know that one should always bring back-ups on a first outing.

Omg I love the shoes! I have a soft spot for 80s heels and luckily I tend to find them in op-shops here but I've never found a pair as awesome as yours...hopefully you can fix them easily and they stay together!

Those shoes bring the whole set together.
It is a great idea to have an extra pair of shoes when using vintage ones... great tip.
