In My Closet: Aubergine and Butterscotch Sandals

Growing up most of my shoes as well as my costume shoes (last season's hand me downs from my gram, aunt, and mom that my sister and I got to clomp around the house in) were made in either Spain or Italy. All were leather. My favorite brands were Nickels (my favorite pair were a tan version of these red pumps), Bandolino, and Amalfi by Rangoni. My favorite costume shoes were Joyce, Pappagallo, Henry Waters, and Herbert Levine.

When we decided on the Caribbean for our honeymoon I discovered that other than a pair of Doc Martens and DKNY slides I didn't really have any warm weather shoes and neither pair was really suited for visiting museums. Since that discovery I've found three pairs of vintage sandals; all have the stacked wooden heels I adore.

Of the three, my favorites were both new old stock (NOS) finds: aubergine sandals from Bandolino and butterscotch sandals by Pappagallo.
