70s Revisited

This is the 70's vest I got in the week from the charity shop.
It's a Marks and Spencer vest and has all music words over it-totally unusual!!
I've paired it with my 7 for all mankind jeans, which are slightly flared, keeping up the 70's vibe!!

I also found in my wardrobe some silver gladiator style flat sandals, that were in the sale a couple of years ago at Dorothy Perkins for £5!!

Well, the reason as to why they were at the back of the wardrobe, unworn, is that the toeposts are hard and uncomfy :-(

I'm hoping I will have the stamina to break these in, as they are gorgeous sandals!!

good luck in breaking in your shoes! the toe posty ones are always the worst to break in, poor feet.

love your tank top, it's so cool!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi thetinylittlegirl-thanks so much! I will be breaking them in another time-my poor little feet need a rest!

Fabulously Broke said...

Breaking in shoes = sucks

I heard soaking them in warm water (standing in a tub with them on) then walking around with them helps but I've never tried :P

And it only works if it's leather

Love the outfit!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi fabulously broke-thanks, but they're not leather-maybe thats why they were so cheap! C'est la vie-haha!!

Great vest - I enlarged it to look at the words. I love words and it is a great vest the cut and shape is fab plus the placing of words is so well constructed - my how times change M&S couldn't deliver this number now!

That vest is really nice! I bought a pair of black sandals similar to yours on Saturday and I still have to break mine in as well. They fit quite snugly when I tried them on in the store though so hopefully it won't be so bad!
