handmade....shoes!

the other day i stumbled upon a blog post that cited an etsy shop who made....handmade shoes. of all things! shoes are one thing i've never dared to try to make, so i'm completely impressed with anyone who can pull this off. at the time, i'd just ordered a pair of little leather oxfords from aldo, but they didn't fit and i was struggling with the whole hassle of exchanging them....only to stumble upon these shoes. with these handmade shoes being $15 LESS EXPENSIVE than the aldo shoes, and probably better constructed, i promptly returned my shoes and bought a pair of these wonderful goldenponies shoes.

i'm so excited about them! they did take a little while to make their way to me...but when i imagine the hard work the handmade shoe elves had to put into them, it's all worth it. they are super soft leather and are so comfortable! someone even commented on them saying they look like the shoes Baby wore in dirty dancing. that could possibly be the best compliment i've ever received!
