it's a form of PHILANTHROPY



these are not new! not technically! i swear!
i was wasting time in the hood on father's day waiting for my DOPE RIDE aka MOM & DADZ CAR to come get me for fam time and i stopped in atomic passion just cuz it'd been a while and i could hear the dolly parton from outside and i never heard a playing of JOLENE that i didn't love.

i wandered back to the sale section and found these sorta beaten lovelies for 15 dollars.
i had to rescue them! this was a GOOD DEED!
they have not-quite-matched satin shoelaces and they are sooo very marc jacobs-y.





i just got them back from the cobbler (i LOVE THAT WORD!), they got new insoles and a little shine. i shall love them dearly

ps and fyi-slers: this skirt is from old navy and it's high-waisted and teensy-striped awesomeeeee. steve and i spent all day trading O.N. links, we love it..it's the new secret sickness.

pps, in the background in the last pic is the STEAMER i bought this weekend because i am over paying my dry-cleaner to make my shit presentable. this seems like a certain kind of fashion lunacy that i never thought i'd have.

ppppps. also in the bottom photo is hound dog bank, who lives next to giant cerami-cat, the only pets i can deal with at this point in life.

P-MILLION-S i took these pics with my iphone bc i am not sure where my camera is. not great, but not so bad, yeah?

how much did the cobbler cost? oh that sounds cute. but how much, may i ask? i have to get mine re-did and i wanna know an estimate.. *says re-did because she likes being ghetto sometimes*

elizabeth said...

thanks thanks!

belle- prices are different all over, but i like my guy in the port authority station at 42nd street ( outside my work)..i brought him minor repairs on 4 pairs of shoes and it was like 30 bucks. it's usually cheaper than you think it'll be, unless you have major damage...
