It’s the thrill of finding something completely unique that you can no longer find in stores
It’s the fantasy of living in another time and wearing a piece of history on your sleeves
It’s the assurance that vintage doesn’t just mean the style
It’s owning something that is worthy of a conversation
It’s being part of a community who loves, understands, and treasures creativity and history
It’s a great feeling to support and recognize worthy artisans
It’s the satisfaction of owning something quality made and lasts a lifetime

Why do you love Etsy?

Ceud mìle fàilte! That means one hundred thousand welcomes in Gaelic/Scottish. Shabby Apple just introduced its new Fall 2013 collection called Tartans and Tweeds. I say, I’m really loving this new collection. I have above some of my most favorite. I like the above outfits the most, because they’d look good alone even without elaborating with accessories and hair, don’t you think? Some dresses need something to compliment it with, but you don’t have to with these. The faux fur, the tweed, the tartan are more than enough to wow you! Check out some more of Shabby Apple’s vintage clothing.

Did you know that the word tartan just means plaid in North America, but in Scottland, plaid means a piece of tartan cloth hung over the shoulder or just a plain bed sheet?  I really like learning about differences in culture, time, and culture through time. Tweed is a material that used to be worn only by the upper class, and now we can enjoy it no matter what stature. Oh, bless equality!

shoelifts

Louis Vuitton sneakers above are for sale

While I was looking for comfy gel inserts a while back, I landed on these things called shoe lifts. They’re inserts with heels! Having these can transform your shoes into wedges, which is a really neat thought. Here are the different kinds you’ll see being sold and the type of shoe they’re best for.

The goal of shoe lifts are to add height and create a more slender look to your legs while keeping the heel a secret. You can only really wear them with flat shoes—sneakers, ballet flats, etc. Every flat shoe is different though, so it’s not a guarantee that shoe lifts will fit just any flat shoe. You’ll have to do some trial and error.

I’m giving the following kinds of shoe lifts their own names, but you may see them named as something else elsewhere. You’ll just have to remember what they look like. They can come in different colors, materials, and styles. Although shoe lifts come in one size, you need to keep in mind that the pairs are different for men and women.

These are the most common kinds:

1) Heel Only Stackable

shoeinserts2

These shoe lifts go from your heel to about a couple of inches into the center of your sole (Twilight Zone music cue). You should get these heel-only inserts with three stacks at most. There might be pairs out there with more, but you’ll have to be really lucky to manage stuffing them in your tennis shoes.

2) Whole Foot Stackable / Non-Stackable

shoeinserts3

These inserts look more like your regular pair of shoe inserts, because they cover your whole sole. They are different from your regular inserts, because they have detachable heels. You can cut the tips to fit your feet.

3) Sock Inserts – Heel Only,  Stackable / Non-Stackable

shoelifts4

These guys come with somewhat rounder and smoother surfaces, so that they can be discreet inside your socks while being worn as is without your shoes on. I’ve worn these at house parties that required guests to remove their shoes with no problem. They don’t make a noise when you walk around. You can also wear these inside your shoes, because I personally think they are the most comfortable kind. The red pair I have above are more like sock inserts, because they are smoother and not too high. The more common sock insole looks like this.
