Fabulous Shoes of the Past…with Gloria Swanson!

Manolo says, the Manolo’s internet friend, Jenifer has written the review (with many pictures) of the 1920 Gloria Swanson movie, Why Change Your Wife?

Here’s how it goes. Man marries woman who promptly becomes “decent” and “modest” (though it does not show what she was before the marriage). He tries to liven things up by buying her a negligee from a fancy store, but who should be the model but a girl who had a crush on him in childhood. This movie frequently focuses on the shoes as a symbol of sex and feminine power. (In other words, shoes have been such for a very long time). These are her shoes.

And now you must go read the whole thing, as there are many more photos of super fantastic shoes from the Roaring Twenties.
