I’ve been thinking of making a blog post about my shoes for a long time, and I finally got around to taking some photos of most of my somewhat fancy shoes. I didn’t include all of my heavy cold weather shoes or super casual shoes and wellies and such.
On the left is a pair of probably early 60s beige kitten heels. These are great for all of my late 50s/early 60s style outfits as the colour goes with pretty much anything.
Next are my Re-Mix Babydoll shoes. These are great neutral shoes that go with absolutely everything from pretty much any era. I had to buy these several sizes up and they’re still pretty snug, but when they fit they’re great.
Next are a pair of navy velvet 50s peep toe heels that I love. They’re quite comfortable for being heels so I’ve worn these a lot.
Then there are my absolutely amazing 40s platforms, I found these super cheap at an antiques fair and couldn’t believe my luck. I love the kind of high “décolletage” (or whatever you call it on a shoe).
Last are my Miss L Fire platforms that I wrote about in this post. These are great, but really big. I’ve put extra insoles in them but they still flop around on my feet. I couldn’t wear them without the strap. I wish I had been able to change them for a smaller size, but I bought them on sale when there were no smaller ones left.
Summery shoes! First are a pair of Re-Mix Rita peep toe platforms. I bought these mostly because they reminded me of these shoes, and I’ve put studs on the soles to make them even more similar. They are so pretty but unfortunately not very comfortable. I’ll have to put some kind of soft pads in them some time.
Next are my Swedish Hasbeens, I absolutely love both of these pairs, they are comfortable as well as amazingly gorgeous and I’m so happy to have them. The white and navy pair look so great with wide white trousers and 30s and 40s yacht wear inspired outfits. The yellow pair are just the perfect summer shoes. I love to wear them with shorts and they make me feel really beautiful for some reason.
The last pair are my aunt’s old espadrilles. They’re probably from the 70s, but look perfect with 50s outfits. Unfortunately a little bit big, but I’ve never seen a better looking pair of espadrilles.
Some shoes for colder weather. I found the first pair at a flea market pretty recently. I can’t really tell how old they are, they could be 1940s but they could also be from the 80s or something. They’ve become a favourite pair this autumn as they’re really warm and very comfortable.
Then my amazing Miss L Fire shoes. These are quite warm and super comfortable and so very beautiful. The last pair is also Miss L Fire. I got these recently and I think they look fantastic. Unfortunately the edge is very stiff and digs into my ankle in a painful way. I have to come up with some kind of solution because they’re perfect otherwise.
I think these sneakers from Pastry are absolutely perfect, but I’m not much of a sneaker person so I wear them a lot less often than they deserve. My winklepickers are amazing as well, but a little bit too big, and I wish I had a pair with heels instead. Last but not least, a great pair of pink 80s heels.
