Thrifting Thursday: Romper and Red Shoes

I bought this romper during the epic thrift haul event with BFF. I love rompers and I'm glad they've made a small comeback this summer. This one features lovely coconut shell buttons and a paisley pattern that reminds me of my South African fabric. It has pockets too!

True story: I've been unknowingly wearing it backwards. I put it on this morning and a noticed the pocket on my back. How did I miss that? So now that I know the buttons are in the back this makes it a little bit more difficult to wear and it's definitely not breast-feeding friendly. I could continue to wear it the other way too. I would have to remove the button and wear my hair down so it's not so noticeable.

Romper - $2.80
The shoes are also from the haul. Ooooweee! I love shoes with a wedge. I love ankle straps. These were meant for me. The red patent with gold buckles look so good together. Good way to add a little POW to your outfit!

WOA: To clean your new to you thrift store shoes. Clean them well with sudsy water. Disinfect with alcohol. Sometimes I spray them with a disinfecting spray too. Add a shoe pad for an extra layer between you and the shoe. I mainly add the pad to shoes I can't see inside of like boots.

I use to be apprehensive but I've gotten over it. I've never gotten any toe/foot "fun guys" from them.
Enzo Angiolini - $3.80.
A bit over my max but I really liked them, they're in great condition and they are my size.
Do you wear thrift store shoes? Have a good cleaning tip?
