Shopping at Re-Mix Vintage
Now that I don't buy new clothes (and very rarely buy vintage), my one splurge is shoes. And by splurge I mean I actually buy a pair of shoes once in a while rather than constantly wear the same shoes I bought at Ross three years ago. I figure that, like clothing, I should make the investment and wear well-crafted and unique shoes and try to avoid being cheap and sending my money straight into a big corporation's pockets.
That's a long way of saying that I had to stop by Re-Mix Vintage when I was in Los Angeles visiting my grandparents. Ever since Fleur posted about Re-Mix, I've been searching online for deals. I have a pair of Picasso wedges in black that I purchased on Amazon for about $70 — much more than I ever spend on shoes. They're incredibly comfortable and I wear them constantly.
I headed to the Los Angeles shop and bought a pair of Gilda wedges that I originally let slip past me on Amazon. Talk about comfortable! I wore them (brand new) to Disneyland and walked the entire day without a blister. I love these shoes! They were on sale at $89. I also picked up a pair of Gloria peep-toe wedges in burgundy suede (exactly like these but, being the last pair in the store, were $98.)
P.S if you're a size 6, there's two pairs of red Greta lace-up wedges at Amazon for only $49.35!
