Parisian Dreams

I was drunkenly stumbling around the blogosphere the other day, when I discovered what I consider to be a buried treasure.

I was over at Oh, So Darling and I came across the Etsy shop Oxford is Heaven, described as custom Marie Antoinette shoes. I gasped. My own unique pair of Marie Antoinette inspired shoes? Well I need them to trek around Paris right?

Then I remembered that since this Paris trip was a last minute decision, and much savings was spent on just the plane & studio, I will be living on mere pennies a day until we leave. This is so I will save money to be able to spend, spend, spend there.

So downtrodden, I looked at the pricing. To my shock her designs range from $20-40!
But again, mere pennies here. So I will have to wait.
But you don't! Please go check her store out.
Or her Flickr, as since she does custom designs her store doesn't display all her beautiful work!
And if you love me, buy me something & ship it to Santa Barbara (mom, are you reading this?)
