{Style Inspiration} Shoes to Match

So, in an effort to introduce some structure to my blogging schedule (one of my blogging resolutions), I bring you my first regular feature: Style Inspiration Sundays. So now you can look forward to a weekly segment of inspirational vintage style. Fun!

I loved these pictures of shoes matching clothing or other accessories from LIFE magazine, 1946. Some of the looks are easier to emulate than others (must get me a pair of leopard print shoes!).

Funnily enough, this reminds me of my favourite outfit when I was 15-16. I had a mini kilt skirt in Black Watch (blue, green and black) tartan, which I wore with matching Doc Marten boots. Oh yes.


  1. lovely post. the shoes are just gorgeous. i find it really hard to get great vintage look shoes, you have inspire me to hunt a little harder! x

  2. Such a lovely post and lovely outfits as well.

  3. Great post & fantastic images! The leopard print one is so snazzy!

  4. It's always great to have matching shoes. As well as matching handbags, and matching jewellery XD

  5. Oh tartan DMs! I remember them (I only had plain ones, but I did have a little indie kilt!).

    I love these - the booties and matching skirts especially. I remember a book once which slated the mid-century fashion for ankle boots with skirts, calling them a blot on an otherwise stylish era (!!) - but I think they are practical and cute. Which are two pretty positive traits when it comes to shoes!

  6. wow. the crosses are unreal. I have had some vintage purses that match with shoes, but not with dresses.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
