Why do I even know who Carmen Miranda is?
Honestly, I didn’t until I wikipediaed her, but I always knew her name and what she looks like.
She was a brazilian samba singer and then film star in the forties and fifties known for her fruit hat.
I think when I was very young, there must have been some craze for dressing up like Carmen Miranda at eighties costume parties or something.
Anyway, the image lingers on in the mind.
I think I must get my love of banana earrings from her.
And I think she’s the reason why I like the following shoes so much.
I saw these shoes on a great vegan shoe blog Vegan Shoe Addict today, and wanted to share them here, cause I liked them so much.
I like them in mauve and in white.
What do you think?
