    Why do they have to be sold out of Dapper in every size but 5! It's like my Fred Perry experience all over again :rage: I'm just going to have to cut my toes off a la Cinderella's sister.

    Ha, you actually know that version of the story! I am a professional storyteller and most people don't know the older more gruesome version of Cinderella. The step-sisters get their eyes pecked out by Cenderella's doves at her wedding too.

    Hello ladies! I have a ball to attend on Saturday and still haven't bought any shoes to wear with my Regency-style dress (which also hasn't arrived). What sort of thing do you think I should wear with it?
    Here's the dress, it's a Marion May gown in pale green silk dupion:

    A simple pump or ballet flat in a light color would be just right. The dress is long, so the focus isn't on the shoes. Something comfortable to dance in!

    Something in a very pretty slipper-type shoe. For the era, the shoes were almost like what we think of for actual ballet shoes, with ties around the ankle. If you do go for a heel, make it a very small heel, think kitten or less.

    Thank you Colleen and Kymeratale! I've ordered myself some ballet slippers from a dance store, which should arrive this week. I really wanted some pointe shoes with ribbon around the ankle but I could only find them in pink or peach :rage:

    MOHOP TIME!

    I know these were mentioned in the platform thread like 2 years ago, but I don't remember them being mentioned here.
    It's finally hot in Idaho, so I pulled my trusty mohops out of storage.
    I think they are really similar to those awesome clear ones Marilyn had.
    I've had these for about 3 years and they are still like new :)

    Oh my gosh! I'd never heard of these before, but they're brilliant!
    I really want a pair...

    I found the blue version of these super fantabulous shoes a few months ago at an outlet store for 18 bucks and found a pear green version at the same store the other day for 8 bucks. I adore them and they're comfy. The brand is Wanted shoes.

    Shoes!

    I found mine at a second hand store here. Then I did a google image search for the brand and found those pics.

    ;)
