Beautiful 1920s and 30s shoes

I adore 1930s shoes and I have been amassing a great collection of 1920s and 30s shoe pins that I would like to share here. I never cease to be amazed at the at the elegance and sophistication of some of the designs and I would dearly love to own them or see them reproduced for the modern market. I think the shoes with cut-outs and geometrical patterns are some of my favourites from designers such as Schiaparelli, and Perugia.

I have a Pinterest page full of pics of 100s of vintage shoes that I have found online and appropriately called ‘Vintage Shoe Love’. So, if you adore vintage shoes, take a look 🙂

Miss L Fire 2013 Autumn/Winter Collection

I’m a big fan of UK based Miss L Fire. Stunning shoes with styles so reminiscent of the 30s, 40s and 50s. Here are my favourites for the coming European season. The Cleopatra is the style I like most. They have a very 1930s feel about them. I have included a few large pics to show detail and then smaller ones with the colour range.




1939 Life Magazine article – Parisian shoes

Wonderful article in a 1939 Life Magazine about the new styles of shoes from Paris at the time. “Most popular among the spring shoe selection were the open-toe, open-heel slip ons which made “women clop when they walk”.  Style experts claimed these shoes were too open to provide a good fit and made the feet larger.”

Oh so gorgeous 30s gown and shoes!

Just had to add this to the blog today. A stunning 1930s red gown and an amazing pair of satin evening shoes from the same era. Both from different Etsy stores and yet, look how well they go together. Just breathtaking!
