birks are wonderful, and you can get some pretty good "knock offs" for
less, too - i have a pair from jcpenney and sears, i think one brand is
eastland? as for the ugly factor, they're really not, especially when you
have ultra cool socks underneath! i have tie dye, glitter, embroidered,
lace, day glo - for christmas and birthdays, an addition to my collection!
target store has really fun ones. and juncture gave fabulous advice about
goodwill! i'm a clothes maniac - would be destitute without thrift shops.
i have a silk original pucci print jacket that i paid $1 for, all kinds of
hand beaded and sequined stuff, vintage, international, designer
boutique... you can't believe the incredible finds out there waiting to be
discovered. also, if you're into dyeing, you can buy tons of white cotton
tops and bottoms and cutomize. nirvana for me is visiting a city like
tampa or miami with my sister and shopping the thrift/vintage/consignment
shops till we drop (of course, this is only after we have done the
galleries/museums). i used to be shy when people admired my clothes and
asked where they were from - now i proudly share the secret! especially
with my label conscious middle schoolers... i like to think of it as
rescuing people from the evil mall.

as for paint stains, how about creative patching? add a button,
embroidery, paint a little flower or whatever with fabric or acrylic paint
on top -
