I feel a new fad coming on...

Oh my word! My poor photography cannot do justice to these amazing shoes – in the flesh they have a wonderfully surreal look, like there's some kind of forest theme going on.

I bought them today at a vintage fashion fair. The seller claimed they were 1940s but I don't think so, I've never seen '40s shoes with heels that high, I'd date them to the early-mid 1970s.

Although I'm not sure why, I'm really in the mood for surreal fashion right now. Trompe l'oeil and a Schiaparelli shoe hat perhaps?

Wall art

These are two children's vintage jigsaws hung on the wall as art. I don't think anyone was going to be too challenged by the world's easiest puzzle: only three pieces and the name as a clue!
