I just couldn't resist sharing the yummiest book ever written about vintage shoes: The Seductive Shoe, Four Centuries of Fashion Footwear by Jonathan Walford, published by Thames & Hudson in 2007. There are 429 color illustrations in this gorgeous reference book, plus shoe history for everyone who loves vintage fashion.
Wouldn't you LOVE to own just one pair of these little beauties??? It would be so hard to choose!
