A pretty request

March 24, 2010

Since yesterday’s post was so heavy, I thought today I’d do a 180.

My friend Christine (half of the great new fashion blog Seven Dollar Pants) is notorious for unearthing the best finds at stores like Value Village and the Salvation Army. She has a great eye and when she comes across a must-have fashion piece that doesn’t fit her perfectly she buys it anyway and passes it on.

I have been lucky enough to receive a couple of these treasures, but none more amazing than these shoes!

They’re Valentino and they only cost $7!! How crazy is that?!? Whoever put them on the shelf had absolutely no idea what these puppies were worth.

Judging by the velvet material we figure these are from his collection circa the early 80s.

So I have a bit of an ulterior motive for this post – there’s a contest that involves these shoes. I know it’s a long shot, but I figured why not enter and then ask you to vote for me!

I tried entering several times last night and I kept getting error messages. Of course when it finally went through there were spelling and grammar mistakes galore (bah!), so please ignore them and vote for me anyway.

Pretty please, with a cherry on top!
