OK, so these heels are a bit breakneck, but if they were a guy I’d be totally making a fool of myself right now. And probably in vain, because they’re pink! Check out the goodies – we have a sexy fishnet pattern, skulls, bows, even a little pink skull charm, by the looks of it. Oh and, of course, black and white stripes for that sexy punk/courtesan feel. I do believe these are the perfect vegan, somewhat edgy pin up shoes for all your flirting-with-goth needs.
Oh yeah and they’re totally on sale right now at Schuh. Get in there quickly while there are still a few sizes left!
Right now, spring is certainly looking pretty far away, but I keep telling myself it’s just around the corner. Of course, one of the best ways to feel better while going through winter is to plan ahead for all the cool spring and summer shoes you’ll be wearing next season. With this in mind, I present these super simple, versatile and darling little mary janes by blog favourites, Melissa Shoes.
Wear them everywhere, with everything for all your modern, retro and hipster needs.
They remind me of those cute Chinese shoes that were a big hit in the 90s, but unlike those they are obviously made of Melissa’s patented bubblegum scented plastic and have those big Minnie Mouse bows.
You can get them from Fashion Conscience.
Well aren’t these just totally brilliant? Check out the heel! But just in case this ultra-super-fucking-awesome lightening-shaped heel wasn’t enough to make these Flash Gordon 80s revival meets pin up creation sweet, you also get a little tiny blue lightening bolt on the front. These will definitely make any outfit and get you instantly noticed. If you want to have people talking about your shoes all night long, then you’ll have to work hard to beat these ones, I think.
You can get them from TUK.
Here’s a pair of shoes for all you fans of low heels, shiny heels and showgirl heels. These look a bit like something out of a chorus line, with sparkly bows and a colour-shifting fabric upper (with faux leather trims). They look like they’ll make fun dancing shoes, if you’re not keen on skyscraper heels but want to look girlie and retro.
The description says they’re purple, too, though I can’t quite tell in the picture. They seem more like a cross between purple and turquoise.
Either way, you can get them at Schuh.
These twee and green mary jane flats have a big bow and a big flower giving them an extra cute twist. There are also embroidered bows on the back in pink, to make you go “awww” just a little bit more. Gotta love Poetic License and their attention to detail! These are called “beach bunnie” and while certainly summery, I’m not sure I’d want to wear them to the beach and get sand all over them. I guess it’s more of a state of mind sort of thing, or you could wear them when you’re sitting on the somewhat less damaging wooden decking of the beach cafe, sipping your holiday cocktail. They seem to have rubber soles, so maybe you could even wear them on a boat, who knows?
They also come in a natural hessian colour with nice touches of bright pink (and a green lining). You can get them from Amazon in the US and Irregular Choice in the UK.
And tonight on “Shoes that make you go oooooooooh” – these sandals by Harajuku Lovers! They are so, so so so cute.
They come in black, white, red or yellow and each colour has its own cool little lady on the insole. It’s almost like a collect them all Pokemon thing and, frankly, at $35 a pair, it’s almost tempting to get a few different colours. I love the sexy wedge that’s just high enough to give you a nice profile but not too insane and I love the girlie bow. I also have a thing for jelly shoes, so I may be a bit biased, but I think these would make perfect summer shoes for everywhere and everything. If you’re the sort of person who likes even your casualest of beachwear to have a classy retro touch, then these are your sandals.
You can get them from Endless.
I was on the hunt for vegan shoes at Miss Selfridge and these caught my eye on the top of the page. They sort of remind me of 70s platforms in colour and style so I’ve marked them as retro. Notice the cute, hidden leopard print lining. It’s becoming increasingly popular to make all kinds of wild linings to otherwise plain-coloured shoes and I’m all for that. It’s sort of like a little secret about your character.
These will make super spring and summer shoes with a short dress or you could even wear them in winter under certain circumstances (in the UK – indoors?) with tights. Yes, I’m pretty sure they’d go (un)surprisingly well with bell bottomed cords, but I’m not sure you want to go that route.
You can get them from Miss Selfridge.
Whenever I see white shoes I instantly think bridal, but these pretty, low-heeled peep toes could work with other outfits, really. They have a simple, classic shape but are saved from plainness by the addition of the cute little side bows.
I can’t imagine there are that many decent looking vegan bridal shoes out there and these seem pretty cute and a little bit retro, too. The main material is satin.
They’re called “Forest side bow” and you can get them from Schuh.
I really wish we had Payless in the UK. Every time I take a look at their site, I find some other neat vegan shoes. I know it’s not exactly a high fashion place to shop, but shoes like these are an instant classic and you could pair them with evening outfits far, far more expensive than the $29 or whatever that they cost. Most people, I reckon, would never guess where these came from. They have major pin up factor, too. They’re designed by Lela Rose, the third designer who makes lines for Payless, alongside Isabel Toledo and Christian Siriano.
They’re currently on sale at Payless.com
For a mere £18 you could do a lot worse than these cute leopard print & black vegan flats. The have a cute bow and pointy toes, making them a little bit interesting.
If you like flats and are looking for new shoes to brighten up your fun, every day collection, then go for it.
Another happy find in the Office sale!
Merry Christmas everyone! Here’s to loads of veggie and vegan presents.
These Tea & cakes chintzy, flowery heels by Irregular Choice are obviously inspired by a visit to your grandma. Today is a good day to visit your grandma, cause it’s Christmas! It’s OK, though, you can still visit her even if she doesn’t celebrate Christmas. It’s just a nice thing to do.
Back to these…They feature colour overload with loud bunny soles (in case the heaps of flowers weren’t loud enough). The big bows are there to make them just a little bit more over the top.
You can get them from Schuh
Melissa, eat your heart out!
I love the looks of these shoes. Especially the whole strappy thing they’ve got going on, that apart from looking hot also means the shoe is very airy.
The bow just makes them extra cute, a bit retro and almost a little bit cartoony. In a sweet and girlie way.
Being designer shoes, they are not cheap, but then, neither are Melissa Shoes and these are a lot less common.
You can get them from Moschino.
Well, this is a bit random. These are stiletto heels designed by Isabel Toledo for… Payless shoes.
I found their picture on my favourite pretty shoes eyecandy tumblr thingy, shoelust.
Most of the shoes on there are high fashion, super expensive and super leather, but someone’s added these ones as well and they seem to fit right in.
So now you can wear shoes designed by someone who’s designed clothes for Michelle Obama, for just under $45. Perfect for the coming party season, that’s for sure.
You can get them from Payless.
Finally! Party season is just around the corner, so boring winter boots are finally starting to give way a bit to some pretty, glittery shoes.
These pretty red ones have a comfortable heel and will be good for Christmas parties or dressing up as Dorothy for some of you, while providing much needed pin up heel goodness for others. I know my vegan burlesque performer friends will be ever so pleased to see these. There’s always room in my shoe box for red glitter!
You can get these from Schuh.
Office have a nasty habit of hiding leather linings in otherwise leather-free shoes, but their current sale also seems to be hiding a few 100% vegan treasures. OK, so it’s decidedly winter here in the UK and these are totally spring/summery, but I really like them anyway and now they’re almost half price. Maybe you can slap on some thick tights and wear them on a day when it’s not raining.
They come in this navy colour and in black. You can get them from the Office site.
