Thrifty & Chic: New Gold Shoes


Again, I’m talking about shoes.

My friend Susan texted me the other day to see if I wanted these beauties. Of course there was no thinking involved, I made her buy them for me. Who wouldn’t want brand new GOLD keds for $4?

The only downside is that they’re a size 6. I’m a 7. They sorta fit. Barely. I figure if they hurt my feet too much I can give them to my younger sister who will babysit for shoes ;). I think I need to wear these shoes, my gold helmet to match (safety first!), my most hipster clothes & cruise around town on my fixie. I think my coolness would spike 10 points if I did that. Don’t you?

Just for fun, I thought I’d include an image I took while playing around with my new Gary Fong Lightsphere. Pretty artsy fartsy, hu?

      ohhhh so pretty. I love them. I wonder if you could stretch them a little by stuffing them with newspaper when they are damp.

      Your local cobbler should be able to easily stretch these up to one full size. My boyfriend gets this done because he has gigantic feet and a very hard time finding shoes that fit. It costs $10 here in the SF Bay Area, it’s pretty reasonable.

    10. I have these too!!! They were my Grandma’s years ago – truly vintage! Love them.

    11. I found a pair of yellow Keds in great condition at my local Goodwill a while ago and love them for the summer time! & I’m also a big fan of gold shoes. I have a pair of Steven Madden (good deal @ Marshalls) gold heels that I love.

      Oh wow, what a great find! Such fun shoes.

    13. […] also gave me killer silver keds (which is awesome because my gold ones are too small) & a rockin floral tank. I’m going to alter the tank a bit, so I’ll […]
