Have an Eco-Friendly Halloween...

Halloween evokes images of ghosts, goblins, and witches. The smell of fall leaves and the brisk night air on your face. Eco- shopping is on the tip of everyone's lips these days. How about a green Halloween this year? Here are a few tips to help you do just that:

  • Make your own costume from recycled material
  • Trick or Treat with a Chico Bag, then use it for grocery shopping
  • Give out trinkets instead of candy

Two Trees for Donivee!

"Two Trees for Donivee" is a custom pair of art shoes illustrated by pen and ink artist Halle Riddlebarger for a wonderful Village Shoes customer from Arcadia, California. Drawn in black india ink on a white leather pump, this pair features trees reaching up from the base of the heel and the branches wrapping down around onto the toe.

Want your own art shoes? The artist can draw on any light colored, smooth leather shoe. Contact the artist at halle@village-shoes.com for details.

Village Find: Giddyspinster

Check out this Clear Succulent Planter made from an exotic dancer's recycled platform stiletto! Recycling at it's best.

This is a size six repurposed stiletto heel. It used to belong to an exotic dancer friend of mine (thanks Jamison!) I removed the top of the shoe, sanded it, drilled holes for drainage, and then planted it with a purple-tinged succulent (an echeveria hybrid) with a tiny thorn at the tip of each "petal".

The succulent plant will need very bright light and just a little water from time to time. In return, it'll repay you with a stark reminder of how hard it is to...well, to be a woman.

All Women and Men Should See This!

I posted this video on my personal facebook page this morning, and I thought it was so powerful and necessary that I should post it here as well. This is for all of the women who never feel beautiful enough and the men who don't understand. It's not real! Let's start to recognize this truth.
