Green Patent Shoes

I’m going to be really sad when these lime green, patent heels finally bite the dust. I bought them in the summer of 2004. They will soon begin their eight year of wear.

Dress, Merona (shortened). Shirt, Christopher & Banks (thrifted). Shoes, Colin Stuart. Bag, Xhilaration. Jewelry, vintage.

I take them to shoe cobbler to have the heel taps replaced, as necessary, but eventually, the shoes will wear out. Quel dommage! I’d better enjoy them before they go.

urbanog has a round toe replacement if you're in green patent panic mode.

Amazing! Are you on the prowl for a replacement pair yet, just in case?

May I just say that you are brilliant with balancing/combining colors and patterns?

I'm afraid to look for new shoes...as if it might jinx my old pair into falling apart!

The shirt and dress look like they belong together! My favorite element is the jewelry, the earrings are really working and the rings and bracelets make it all yours. ~LBF

Love those shoes. Fingers crossed that they keep holding up. Love how you paired the shoes with the patterned dress.

Awesome shoes - I love the pops of citrus in this outfit.

It's so sad when a beloved item starts to wear out.

If I love a shoe, I will also make many, MANY trips to the cobbler :)
They are a marvelous pair and the heel seems like a comfy one.

Love the neon pops of color! I judge how much I love a shoe by how much I am willing to take it to a cobbler. I'd definitely scout of green shoe alternatives, since I know you've worn those a bunch.

Love the shoes, and the outfit in general! I frequently have the "wish I'd bought more than one pair" moments! They look in good condition in the pics though so you've obviously taken good care of them!
