Silver Bow Shoes, Yours for a Song

So I bought these UTTERLY FANTASTIC vintage silver bow heels from ButlerandMaid's Etsy shop (which you should totally check out, especially since I pirated these photos from them and kinda owe them one). And I was superpsyched to get them and plan outfits around them and saunter around feeling sassy in them.

And they are too small. Which I should've known since they're a 7.5 and I wear an 8, for Pete's sake.

SO! I'm giving them away. All's you've got to do is comment on this post, proclaiming your love for these shoes by utilizing song lyrics. Just insert a phrase here and there, let me know which song/artist you're quoting, and be creative! Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, May 24 and I'll select the winner at random on Monday, May 25.

Remember, these are a size 7.5 so don't enter unless they'll fit you or someone you love.

Anyone from anywhere can enter, but be aware that if you live in Guam, I may mail them to you by sea turtle.

New shoes you rule you rule new shoes
I'll wear them on Monday and probably all week long
I'll wear them in the bathtub and I'll write them a love song

All I want to do is swear when I see these. They'd be the perfect companion to The Cutest Gold Shoes In The World. However, here we go:

God knows, you're lookin' good enough,
But you're so smooth and the worlds so rough.
You might have somethin' to loose.
Oh, no, pretty mama, what you gonna
Do in those shoes?

I've never seen such beautiful silver heels!

Sweet surprise, I could get used to
Unusual you!

I love the bows! My favorite part and the color of course. Here we go:

You've got your kickers an' your ropers,
Your everyday loafers, an' some that you can never find.
You've got slippers an' your zippers,
Your grabbers and your grippers, an' man, don't you hate that kind?
Some you wear in, an' some you wear out,
Some you wanna leave behind. Sometimes you hate 'em, an' sometimes you love 'em,
I guess it all depends on which way you rub 'em,
But a girl can never have too many of 'em.
It's amazing what a little polish'll do:
Men are like shoes
-Shania Twain

love 'em! i have this gorgeous deep blue pahty dress (which I made, hem hem) and every time I need to wear it - oops, none of my shoes match!
these would pair amazinggg with it. i love the bows for being frilly and girly and utterly wonderful :)

I could write my name by the age of three
And I don't need anyone to cut my meat for me
I'm a big girl now
See my big-girl shoes
It'll take more than just a breeze to make me
Fall over, fall over, fall overboard, fall overboard
-Ingrid Michaelson

i think these count as big-girl shoes with little-girl soul :)

Ok this was hard.

Put on your diamond shoes
The ones you talk about
That shine like brand new
The ones you've no place to wear
Sure you'll never use
The ones you look so pretty in.

In other news. I have a silver purse and silver wallet that would look PERFECT with this. And I love a bow.

Wow, these shoes are the marriage of my two favorite things: metallics and bows. Swoon! Those are shoes I'd go dancing in all summer long.

Well I don't know why but I just feel like dancing
I can't imagine why but I feel like dancing
And there is nothing in this world
That I'd like better than a twirl across your rickety old floor...
-The Magnetic Fields

A bird who tries to fly higher
Flies into the blue
A lady who strives to rise higher
She wears a high heel shoe
(David Byrne, The Call Of The Wild, Rei Momo)Sweet silver screens! Those are some lovely shoes. I just finished altering/ over dying a thrifted dress to purple, and these shoes would be perfect!

I wouldn't need "diamonds on the soles of my shoes" to walk on clouds in those shiny pretties.

People say shes crazy
She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
Well thats one way to lose these
Walking blues
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

While I do not appreciate Prince using things like "2" and "u" as words in his songs, these shoes are fancy-pants and thus remind me of this:

If I gave u diamonds and pearls
Would u be a happy boy or a girl
If I could I would give u the world
But all I can do is just offer u my love.
"Diamonds and Pearls" by Prince

Bow shoes, I love you, it's all I have to offer.

when i wear my mary jane (*ahem* silver bow) shoes,
i can escape from the blues,
the whole world seems a little brighter,
my heavy steps get a little louder...
-mary jane shoes by fergie

Bethany said...

Oh!! I love them!!

You're gone and I'm great
I got rid of your dead weight
And I'll wave at you behind me
With a new smile on my face
Cause I'm walking in new shoes now
I got a new song to sing


Liane said...

These shoes are amazing!

"Let's dance put on your red shoes
and dance the blues

Let's dance to the song
they're playin' on the radio!"
By David Bowie

Now, if only he had said SILVER shoes...

You don't need experience
to turn me out
You just leave it all up to me
I'm gonna show you what it's all about

You don't have to be rich
to be my girl
You don't have to be cool
to rule my world
Ain't no particular sign I'm more compatible with
I just want your extra time and your

(Prince, Kiss--of course!)

Kathleen said...

I would love to wear these shoes at my wedding! They are perfect!

Since I'm feeling romantic.. my lyrics are from the Beatles "Old Brown Shoe".

That love of yours, to miss that love is something I'd hate.
I'll make an early start, I'm making sure that I'm not late.
For you sweet top lip I'm in the queue, baby, I'm in love with you.
I'm so glad you came here, it won't be the same now when I'm with you.
I'm so glad you came here, it won't be the same now when I'm with you.

Shoes and romance, what could be better?
