I kinda have a love/hate relationship with shoes. I love them on one hand, but I hate the fact that my feet are so picky, especially since tearing my posterior tibial tendon in my foot some years ago as a result of a medication I was on that has a side effect of weakening tendons. So I can't walk in anything high, or too low. I need a supportive sole. I have many ornamental shoes, that are okay for sitting down things, but not for walking far. I seem to buy more shoes at op shops lately then at retail stores, & I guess when they cost around $3 I'm not risking much if I can't wear them. I found these two brogue style leather shoes. The brown ones were $3 & the grey pair were $1.50. They still have the original price tag on at $278. Thanks Salvos!
I found a pair of red Zierra pumps last week at Salvos. No signs of wear. So they are ornamental shoes for me, despite the supportive sole. But I needed some red ornamental shoes.
No love/hate for sunglasses. I only have love for these. I do have quite a collection of sunnies thanks to someone in the optical industry, but I still look out for vintage sunnies at the op shops, & rarely come across them. I found these two pairs from a nursing home op shop. No scratches, gorgeous condition. 80's era.
A dear older lady passed on these old glasses to us before she threw them out.
They date back to around 1900 & belonged to her Grandmother. They are so delicate, I can't believe they've lasted this long.
This is a pair I've had for a while now
I guess these spectacles would be classed as ornamental too!
