Would you believe....

That I found these great Vintage reproduction spat boots while buying my toiletries at Target yesterday!

I said I was only going in there to purchase what I needed, but you know a girl has to always sneak a peek in the shoe department. No matter where she is he-he-he!

Low and behold, there were these great boots that quickly caught my eye. I knew the moment I saw them, that they looked just like a pair I had seen in one of my many reference books to Vintage fashion.

Of course, I purchased them and quickly rushed home to try and remember which of my books I had seen them in. That was a task lol! after sifting through the pages of about 6 books. I finally came upon the one......

"Everyday Fashion of the Forties" As Pictured in Sears Catalogs by: JoAnne Olian

I have had this book for quite sometime, it is definitely one of the older ones in my collection. I am not sure if it is still available to purchase. If it is, I recommend every Vintage Enthusiast to have a copy.

On page 10 of this book, in the upper right corner. You will find a pair of boots called the Feminine Spat Shoe. The date shows 1939/1940.

And these are the reproduction ones I found! So similar, wouldn't you agree? And just in time for Fall fashion to boot!

Here is a closer look at the original to compare images. So glad I took a detour to the shoe isle!
