Espadrilles

We are obsessed with these vintage style shoes! The easiest way to make a modern summer outfit look vintage, is to throw on a pair of these babies! Shouldn't be too difficult to find a pair, because they are making a HUGE comeback right now. These were made popular in the 1940's by Lauren Bacall  in the film Key Largo.

Espadrilles date  back to the 14th century in the Pyrenees mountain region between France and Spain, commonly known as the Basque region, (Which apparently boasts the most beautiful humans in the world). They were originally worn by both men, and women, which was also the case in the 40's/50's as you can see in the photo below.

Although they are super popular for women right now, you mark my words: by summer 2017 the men will be wearing these things, like curly mustachios in the 2010's!!
