I was browsing the endless supply of images on pinterest the other day, when I came across this curious image. Yes, yes, teens from the late 50’s dancing blah blah blah… But that’s not what caught my attention; it was the young lady’s shoes:

You see, I have always avoided thongs because of their modern-ness (I like to stay rather close to vintage & classic/classy styles…), and seeing everybody else wearing them sparked a type of prejudice against that style of shoe. But when I found this little gem, my love for vintage fashion was immediately triggered and a green flag sent up: maybe I actually could wear those after all….

I found a few pairs of thongs that are rather close to the style worn in the photo.
I’m still trying to figure out if they would work into my wardrobe or not…. hmmm… Who knows! Maybe in the next week or two you’ll see me happily sporting a pair of those heat-beaters! 🙂
