I just had to share something rather special I found whilst visiting Battersea Car Boot sale yesterday. I met up with the lovely Jazmine in Battersea (who FYI is a charity shop/boot sale pro) and we walked down to the various charity shops and then onto the boot sale where we were later joined by Kristabel. I have to say, you need to require a large amount of patience to go through peoples piles and piles of belongings at Car Boots. You can see Jazmine has a good eye for spotting vintage pieces (she picked up a pair of Levi cut off shorts for a couple of quid!). I found a gorgeous silk kimono for £2 along with a beautiful emerald green clutch bag for £2.50 but it was these amazing shoes that were my true bargain of the day.
I'm a size 8/9 in shoes. To be honest, I don't actually find it that hard any more finding shoes, now that most high street retailers go up to a UK size 9 (apparently Paris Hilton is a UK 11 so that makes me feel slightly better!) but it's not often you find vintage shoes in a larger size. How AMAZING are these? The detail on the heel is what first caught my eye. They have little gold elephants around the heel as well as on the front. My iphone camera doesn't catch just how wonderful they are, but I'm hoping to do an outfit post with them tomorrow. And only a tenner - bargain!
