So lately I have been finding myself obsessed with anything WWII and 1940s...so naturally I was overly excited about dressing up for our annual Harvest Party (we don't do Halloween).
After many ideas that came and went, I finally settled on "WWII agent", and ideas and grand plans started whirling around my head immediately, Goodwill here I come.
I started by combing every Goodwill store for suits that would match this particular time period. I came up with a beautifully colored pant suit, which fit me well enough.
Of course I should also mention that I don't wear pants...ugh...first road block.
The transforming of the slacks into a pencil skirt was perfect, and after many adjustings and slips to cover up unseemly lines and lumps, we did it!!
The shoes...ah...the shoes...this is a very long story, but to shorten it I will just say that I had been looking for them for months, I wanted a pair that were nice, American made, non 3 inch heeled, wingtip, oxford pumps that didn't have a ugly block heel.
Yes, I'm picky...and no I didn't find anything.
Discouraged, I thought I would finally have to give up my dream of the perfect pair of shoes...and then...behold!! Ebay, life saver, savior!!
For $21.00 some glorious person in New York was selling a pair of the perfect shoes!! Only problem...I don't normally wear 8.5 sized shoes (9 is the normal size) and I have only had small luck fitting into 8.5 shoes in the past.
but I couldn't pass this opportunity up!!
So...I bid...and I won the bid...oh joy!!
Mama and Papa had their doubts, but we were all hopeful!!
They arrived...and I began the task of trying to get them on...they fit...perfectly!!
They are my favorite shoes!!
Ah, this was probably my favorite costume of all times!!
Thanks for Reading!!
