Shoes on

So, you will have noticed the new Best of Swing & Vintage on Amazon banner in the sidebar, and this is what I’ve been procrastinating with the last week, what fun! I’ve set up my very own Amazon store, with all – well the name says it all really – the best of swing and vintage to be found on  It’s so fun, like curating your own collection. Anyway, the best thing though is the shoes! I mean, we all think of Amazon for books, CDs, DVDs, but I had no idea there were so many shoes!! There’s loads of styles, but for example, here’s some of my favorite granny heels:

ALDO Miriello - Clearance Heels Women's Shoes  Miz Mooz Women's Rimini T-Strap Pump
Sofft "Gallery" Mary Jane Pump Sofft "Oriole" Pump
Sofft "Fiona" Mary Jane Pump Nine West Women's Ambelu Pump

Yeah, on Amazon! Who would of thought….

Cute Double Strap Scalloped Mary Janes at Plasticland


Check out these adorable cheapies: just $49.00!  Not leather, so they might not be the best for swing dancing, but damn cute for strutting about in (and that makes them vegan shoes!). Website says “made of a slightly distressed (crinkly) black and taupe leather-look vinyl, they feature rounded toes, unique easy-to-use hook-on double straps, and thick stacked wood 2 1/2″ heels. Fit true to size, medium width.”

Get them here:

Actually, they have a bunch of cute shoes that Swing Fashionistas might like, all for less than $50:
