Vintage Deal of the Day: January 19, 2010

{Be a pin-up version of Cinderella is these see-through 1950s shoes! Bands of cheerfully bright, very springtime appropriate colours adorn this charming pair of clear plastic shoes, which also feature clear lucite heels. Very reasonably priced at $18.00 (US) this stylish pair of heels fits a modern size 8, according to etsy seller Haunted Attics’ estimate, and therefore are likely to fly off the shelf quickly! (Vintage shoes in sizes above 6.5 generally being rather tricky to come by.)}

Happy Tuesday greetings to one and all! How was everybody’s weekend? Mine didn’t quite go to plan, as some of my conditions flared up and kept me in bed for the last three days (I’m not ashamed to admit, I slept for about seventeen hours on Monday – and still woke up tired!). As such, I wasn’t able to devote very much time to catching up on recent Chronically Vintage comments/visits, but as always, I will just as soon as I can (to my wonderful readers, if you leave a comment for me, 99.999% of the time I will visit your own lovely blog and leave one for you, too, sometimes it just takes me a smidge to find my way over to your virtual abode).

Aside from that, all is well on this end. Our relatively mild weather held on over the course of the weekend and is scheduled to remain in place for most of the coming week, too (which is certainly worth smiling about!). For those looking for something to celebrate, today just happens to the birthday of two of music’s most famous female artists: Janis Joplin (born 1943) and Dolly Parton (who entered this world in 1946). Also born on this day (in 1953) was Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz’s son, Desi Juniour.

Wishing everyone a relaxing, gorgeous Tuesday and rest of the week ahead!
