Oh, to have SZ 7 1/2 Feet

I found four pair of wonderful 1950s stilettos. Here's the most recent pair added to pastperfectvintage.com.

1950s De Liso Debs in navy blue doeskin. Oh to have sz 7 1/2 feet again. But I was about 12 years old when I passed that size, and I seriously doubt my mother would have bought pointy toe stilettos for me to wear to grade school. Or anywhere else for that matter.

It's the line that is so appealing. Not the heel or toe, but the whole shape of the shoe. And it implies a lifstyle of elegance and perhaps even glamour. Never having to run. No time spent on concrete floors. Not standing all day to work for a living. Ah well. If you wear a 7 1/2 Narrow, you can have still achieve that feeling , if only for a moment.
