Vintage peep toe slingbacks, so darn cute! I love the chic little details on these, especially the tiny bow on the back of the ankle. I'm simply dying over the navy blue slingbacks with the white dashed threading, can't you just see those being remade today?

All of these shoes are quite classic and if you can't hunt down the vintage pair, a quick pop over to Endless.com will probably result in a vintage inspired pair. I'm not quite sure about gloves, I've never cared much for them, although I still think they are quite appropriate for the opera. I do however, ADORE the white "double nylon" pair for $1.09 (save .40!) those are just so cute!

  1. I think I want one (at least!) of every single pair! They're all darling, and so colourful, too.

    I'm a glove fan, so I actually like several pair. The Meyers Make ones (in red, of course) and the ones just above them are very charming.

  2. If shoes like that were on sale here, I would be in red numbers.
    Lucky me, and unlucky me!

  5. Oh wow, I love the 3rd ad - the 3 heels on the top of the ad are to die for :)

  6. Such amazing shoes--especially love the green pair in the last ad! And I'd love a pair of the elbow-length gloves. I'm a little freaked out that the feet in the peeptoes have, well, no toes. Were toes considered too sexy for a print ad in 1955?

  7. Very cute! I have a couple of vintage inspired shoes in similar styles. As for gloves, I'm a huge fan. I was so disappointed to learn that my mother (50's fashion plate) had given away a huge box of opera gloves to our high school drama department.
