….Joins the ranks (although unfortunately not for mass and media production) and I was lucky enough to be given two of Rosemary Shortell’s prototype sandal samples to try on my girls as she said that I had been somewhat of a ‘goodie’ in supporting and helping her with a recent project….. (although I was only too pleased to be of help to someone!)
The first pair is in the Clarks/Startrite old style with the three tear cutouts on the front like so many of us used to wear in our childhood. Such a pity that they were always usually in the boring, boyish brown in my day (although I do remember managing to get navy blue, white or red pairs for Chon during her later younger years.)
The sandals are being worn with a Marilyn Hotchkiss smocked dress and commercially made socks on a Frido wide faced 1969 eBay win Gingham girl.
The second style are with the sides cut down into a V shape. Since then Rosie has tailored them down in size (although these would be super to wear with the thicker knitted socks that so many of you prefer to put on your dolls.) Both styles have the added detail by having the letter ‘S’ stamped on the soles.
These are being seen here on a Gotz 1969 No-navel lass wearing a vintage -sasha dress with commercially made socks.
These sandals in a very pale blue were a later gift from Rosie and are viewed on a very pretty Trendon 1970 Gingham girl with beautiful silky two toned blonde hair and commercially made socks.
BTW mummy says to tell you that she didn’t bother brushing our hair today as it was rather breezy outside.
Some of the shoes can be bought for a few extra dollars in these lovely little boxes which Rosie has designed and made up.
The GOOD news is that those of you lucky enough to be attending the Fort Worth Texas Sasha Festival this month will have the opportunity to buy a pair of these as Rosie is very kindly sending out twelve pairs for Dawn Law to sell on her sales table, the resulting sales money going to help pay for the printing of the Festival Journal.
Finally, Miss Lippy pops in just in case Simply-Sasha is around to visit us here (as we know that she is busy with the VW car season) to say ‘Hello and hope that you are all keeping well and enjoying this super weather.’ She is wearing Rawkiss skinny jeans, a Dollydoodles long sleeved T shirt, an original early Gotz ski anorak and commercially made canvas Mary-Janes.
Thanks for dropping by. Hope to see you here again on Sunday, August 2nd.
