I like the classics.

Classical music, classic literature (within limits), classic cuisine...

...and spectator pumps. I've wanted a pair for ages, but most of what passes for spectator pumps anymore are either outrageously overpriced designer variations or streetwalker chic (how did that happen?). Anyway, after much looking, I finally bought this pair of late 80's era pumps on Etsy for next to nothing:


When they arrived, I noticed that they have never. been. worn. Ever. No scuffs on the outside, no wear on the soles, no wear anywhere. Pristine. How fabulous is that?

Scream of joy! I think classic spectators are the best, and think owning a pair in navy and white, red and white and black and cream is fabulous. A perfect thing to set up an alert on ebay for. Yahoo for you!

I've always loved spectator pumps. I remember my mother wearing black and white ones to church when I was a kid.

I like classical music too. My favorite thing is to blast opera while I'm gardening. The other day, it was Cecilia Bartoli singing Rossini.

I love all of your shoes... your closet must be the size of a hummer for them to fit.
