Shoes Of The Week – Vintage Spectators

There is truly nothing more eye-catching than a nice spectator. The amount of white that is usually present can’t help but allure you in to their captivating presence. Obviously you will have some that are much nice than others, but when done right and incorporated into a lovely outfit, there is nothing that screams ‘cool’ more so than them. I can’t for the love of me remember who these ones are by. I know that it is someone that you would not expect, like J.M. Weston or something of that nature, but nevertheless, the pair presented is probably among the nicest that I have ever seen. Everything about them is bang on, from the pattern, to the medallion, to the shape of the facing, the natural finish left on the welt stitching and most importantly the fact that it is a 7 eyelet shoe. Rarely do you see 7 eyelet shoes and even more rarely do they look good on a dress shoe, as sometimes it becomes a bit of an overkill. But the makers of this shoes nail it right on the head and did a fantastic job of making this the perfect spectator…….I would love to have this in every color combination conceivably attractive!

Today is the last day to get your entries in for the shoe polishing contest so please do so, as I will not accept new entrants from tomorrow.

And on another note, one of my friends has created something that I think will be one of the next big things in the fashion industry. If you are interested, please check it out. It is an app for your phone to sell your clothes on your mobile…. what a clever idea! : Cuturia

I hope that everyone has a great weekend!
