Reason #114 why I love eBay

These shoes, which arrived today (and for which I paid less than $30.00, including shipping).

I'm totally wearing them tomorrow to administer my last exam. Because sometimes I get confused: is this Shakespeare? Or Studio 54?

(You know: the flashing lights, the drugs, Andy Warhol. . . yeah. It's been like that.)

Wow! Fabulous!

Wow, your students will be so touched that you dressed up for them. Or not. They can be grouchy that way.

AJ: Well, actually I'm mostly dressing down--those will be paired with skinny, dark jeans and a golden-tan courduroy blazer.

But I think my students are more suprised/impressed by my wearing jeans than by my "dressing up" anyway.

Yay to the glamour! I wish I could wear strappy little sandals. Alas, my feet are too big and my balance is too off!

Those shoes are Fab-u-lous! Are those honestly Ferragamo shoes for $30? If so, holy crap!

Flavia said...

Abby: oh, totally. They are, of course, "pre-owned," and probably at least 20 years old (although only lightly worn). I've bought a lot of Ferragamo shoes on eBay for comparable prices, since I've found that the brand fits and has some really groovy vintage styles.

Dagnabbit! I missed 'em! But enjoy! You know that Chaser, she loves the Shoes as Manolo would say.
