BIBA* and Pointy Shoes


Feeling recharged after my vacation, I wanted to combine some of my old stuff for a fresh new look.



Course, nothing is really new is it?


Take for example my pointy toe booties.  Did you know back in the 1400's pointy toe shoes were all the rage?  And they could get to 12 inches long?  And if they were longer than two inches, you could be fined forty pence????  Talk about fashion police.....

*Back in Boston again!


1449 Flemish shoes



How long is your pointiest pair of shoes?  Are they fine-worthy?

  1. Being more of a denim person than leather, I liked this outfit.....I DO have a leather vest though.....and if I could find a leather jacket "soft" enough (and at thrift store prices), I'd probably GRAB it!

    I just returned from a few days in Pasadena (which was cooler than I'd hoped for) back to frigid northeaster Indiana. The skies were blue & mountains beautiful though. Didn't have a lot of time for sight seeing.....

    1. Lots of buttery soft leather out there!
      We were in San Diego and got some cool too but how about that abundant sunshine!

  2. I have a pair worthy of the Flemish picture. I bought them in Florence years ago. Unless they fall apart I'm never getting rid of them, even if I only wear them a few times a year!

    1. On the pointy toe thing, they can make a good leg line BUT very hard to keep from curling up lol

  5. I love your skirt! The whole outfit looks really fun, especially the pointy booties.

    I have some boots with long toes, but they're not actually pointy because they're squared off at the end. Not fine-worthy, I'm afraid.

    1. The ones with squared off points are easier to keep from getting all scuffed up I think!

  6. You look great! Love your boots so much. Right now I don't have anything pointy but certainly wish I did. Not 10 inches long though!
