New shoes that work with vintage looks

A difficult thing in my book, finding shoes that work with my 40’s suits and trousers.

Loads of really fab high-heeled and wedge shoes out there but I’ve become more caring of my feet in later years so mostly (but not always) go for a “sensible” shoe these days. (My mother will laugh when she reads that )

Ages ago I used to have and wear original 40’s and 50’s shoes but my loveliest ones all finally went to shoe heaven and I guess I’ve just become pickier with age and prefer previously unworn shoes on my feet.

I just bought these great brogues from Office.

Great on my Katharine Hepburn trouser days and not bad with skirts either.

Then I came across these sling-backs at Modcloth, threw caution to the wind and had a pair sent from the US to me in England. Now I can’t wait for open toe shoe season.

Finally, on my wish-list are these Melissa Patchuli shoes I spotted at DollyDagger

No fun being too sensible…
