If you like your vintage look then you’ll be totally in love with shoe designer, Rachel Simpson’s brand new vintage inspired collection for both you and the man in your life.
Agnes & Norman takes it style inspiration from a bygone era with the emphasis on simplicity and quality. As Rachel said at the launch earlier this month, “each pair is designed to fit perfectly, feel indulgent and exude unique character and good old-fashioned quality.”
There’s fifteen styles in the spring/summer collection with gorgeous colours in leather and suede with lots of details and cute bows to create their vintage vibe. Prices start from £85.
The range will be available exclusively online later this month. Just in time for payday!

Some of us girls love high heels, for me it’s the higher the better! They make me stand taller, feel slimmer and also at 5ft 2 they give me those few extra inches that allow eye contact with the non-vertically challenged – even if it is for just a few hours.
However you might not want to have to wear heels on your wedding day (or want some flats to change into later) so you’re in luck because there are some beautiful alternatives to the wedding high heel on the high street – think ballet pumps with added sparkle!

Most brides tell us the inspiration for their vintage wedding usually starts with their wedding outfit. Whether it’s the dress, veil or shoes, creating your wedding style can stem from one simple piece. When it comes to shoes you are positively spoilt in Kent. We love Rachel Simpson Shoes which are stocked at Froufrou Bridal
in Tunbridge Wells (see pics below).
We also love Emmy Shoes
who we featured last month (click link for the full post). Their beautifully ornate shoes can be made to measure for a perfect fit (see pics below).
The Rainbow Club have stockists all over Kent and have a really good range of vintage shoes at really reasonable prices – our favourites are below.
For real vintage try Trash or Treasure which is a vintage and second-hand shop in Maidstone. They sell a wide range of vintage clothing and accessories from the 50s and 60s right up to the 90s. (It’s down the alleyway between Mu Mu’s Wine Bar and the Ghurka Restaurant).
There are also lots of vintage fairs where you can pick up complete fashion bargains. Check out Red Rose Vintage Fairs.
Next week our vintage wedding special looks at styling your venue.
