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.

IMG_4545 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!

  1. I really like the Picasso wedges. I agree with you about shoes – they are my only clothing indulgence as well! Well made shoes last forever. I’m thinking I might pick up a pair of Remix for myself soon!

  2. The shoes sound fab and uber comfy!

  3. I don’t have many shoes…afraid of what will happen if I indulge in this. I am being inspired by many gals to get my shoe glam on.

  4. Wow, that store looks fantastic!!

  5. ooo. thanks. I have a hard time finding shoes I like that are also comfy. Thanks for this intro. I think I’ll be buying a pair soon!

  6. I am all about comfortable shoes! I’ve decided its worth it to pay more if I then end up wearing them constantly because they are sooo comfy.
