New Sparkly Purses & A Note About My Boots

Happy Friday!  I wanted to share some new sparkly purses that I just added to the online shop.  Everyone needs one of these to add a little pizazz to your outfit on a night out.  If you are getting married, it would be so lovely to use one of these for your essentials on the day of or even as a collection bag for a money dance!  Just click on any of the photos to see the full listing.
On another note, I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for your thoughtful responses in regards to my boot post, that was just the conversation that I was looking to have with you! Beyond blog comments, I got tweets emails and even had a couple face to face conversations about it.  I feel so blessed to have thoughtful consumers in my life with their own experiences to share and I hope to call on your help in the future as I wade through the menagerie of cheaply manufactured goods in the marketplace.  Though I try to buy a lot used, I need to buy new things sometimes and I want to be wise about it.
So, with all that being said, I wish I could go back in time and buy different boots as most people seemed to agree that it was worth spending the money on high end shoes.  However, since I need to work with what I have, I am going to give the resoling a try for two reasons.  The first is that the leather upper of the boots is still in great condition and I hate to throw the whole thing away, when it can be repaired (hence the whole philosophy behind Salvage Life, I'd be a bit of a hypocrite if I didn't, right?).  Since the repair is less than half the cost of the original boot, it seems worth it.  Secondly, I have always been the type who needs to learn by doing or experimenting, which has not always led me to the best decisions, but I usually learn the best lessons that way.  So, I will get new soles and keep track of about how many wears I get out of the boots from there.  I'll keep you posted! 
Hope you have a lovely weekend!  We've been in the midst of a kitchen remodel and I am hoping that we'll be moving back in this weekend, fingers crossed!

Beautiful collection of vintage purses! And I think fixing the boots is a great resolution. Remember that repair shops used to exist? Nowadays we throw everything away and just buy new!
