1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    I found three pairs of shoes in a local thrift store, all obviously from the same source -- a size 8.

    The first is a pair of burgundy crocodile leather David Eden monkstraps, which I bought for SF member Roy Biggins.

    The other two I held off on, uncertain of their desirability (I am primarily interested in these for potential sale, as I don't know what use I might have for them otherwise). One was a pair of Fratelli PSF green lizard skin loafers, the other was a pair of Davanzati laced shoes that have this sort of insane aquamarine suede/darker green crocodile...thing going on. They look a bit pimp-ish, but they're beautifully put together, or at least appeared to my relatively unrefined eye to be.

    Any opinions?

    Maybe pimps use Ebay too, and then you can buy them and resell them on Ebay!

    Or maybe pimps have "Their Ladies" shop on Ebay for them.

    For more "cred" when selling them, use the Pimp Name Generator, it'll impress the playahs.

    The last two sound kind of tacky.
