I suspect I’m probably a little bit late to the party with this one, because I haven’t been checking in with my favourite retro-inspired brands as often as I used to, but I did take a look at the Lindy Bop website today, and guess what? They’re selling shoes!
Now, if I’d heard this news before seeing the shoes in question, I have to admit that I probably wouldn’t have been hugely excited. As much as I like retro-inspired clothes, you see, vintage-look shoes have never really appealed to me: in fact, most of the ones I seem to come across are either too twee for words, or oddly frumpy. I’ve also never been much of a fan of the head-to-toe retro look, which is fabulous on other people, but which always feels a bit costume to me. These shoes, however, are different: yes, there’s definitely a vintage feel to them, and some of the styles could even be described as a little bit on the “twee” side, but I still love them, and I think they could work just as well with more modern clothes as they will with the retro ones Lindy Bop sell. Those pink bow court shoes, for instance, are just begging to be work with jeans and classic white t-shirt, and as for the red polka dot pumps: well, they’ll just make everything you wear them with feel a bit more fun, won’t they?
This isn’t the full selection available, but if you need a new pair of shoes to go with that Lindy Bop dress, check out the shoe section of the brand’s website – and don’t forget to come back and tell me what you got! Oh, and while you’re there, it would be a shame not to check out the dresses, too… wouldn’t it?
