Thinking About The Future In The Past

In the theatre we enjoy giving opening night gifties.
Sure it can be flowers...but often...if it is a special role.... we look for something with a bit more meaning.

Why yes...I have been a thrifter from way the heck back.

Well....shortly after the hubs and I were married ...I was shopping at T-Towne of my absolute fav-o-rite thrift stores of ALL TIME,when I came upon this cramazing silk vintage scarf.
I seem to recall it cost under a dollar( what I would pay + my newlywed budget was a lot less than today). I grabbed it immediately...thinking how I could give it to my daughter on opening night IF she ever did "R and J". Ofcourse I did not even HAVE a daughter yet...I would not even be expecting a child for about 2 years.
I put it in my rather immense vintage scarf stash and almost forgot about it till opening. I tore my house apart looking for it on opening night(it's still messy)...and found it!
Thrifted Kismet.

High heels shoes design depends on the individual preferences, so can choose their favorite style. But a pair of high heels "heel" and "bottom", I think is no compromise, must have perfect key position, because that is the key to comfort of influence to walk.

It's an amazing scarf in general, but how special you could share it with Ruby!!

The history about high-heels shoes is more than four hundreds, but at the beginning it’s not very high.And the height of heels is more and more high since 16 century. The first one was weared by the gentleman in Franch, but not ladies. It’s a surprise to know that high heels shoes is very convenience for persons to ride horseback. Because the heels can catch the stirrup steadily. So Riding boots was the first shoes with high heels .
In 18 th century, there are many beautiful maid of honour in the king’s place of, but they feeled lonely living in the king’s place. So they always went out the place and have fun. Louis xiv Has issued a series of court injunction, but still can not prevent it. At this time, one person provided a suggestion to Louis xiv. He said that maid of honour was too free on their foot, and we can do somethig with their shoes for limiting. Therefore, they created the shoes with high heels for reaching theirpurpose. At first, there are much complain aout high heels shoes , because of pain. However, with the time going by, they get used to it and accept it gradually. Of course, high heels shoes was popular from that time, and become a fashion soon after .
