You wouldn’t be wrong, either. These RED Valentino peep toes are the ideal shoe to give a pin-up inspired twist to whatever you’re wearing, although, in my case, I guess it helps that I’ll probably be wearing an outfit with a pin-up twist all of its own, anyway. These will also work with more modern looks, however: Harvey Nicholas have styled them with a pair of blue jeans, which looks fantastic, and really allows the shoes to take centre stage. Not that they need much, help, mind you: that shiny, polka print upper is designed to get attention, and just in case you doubted their ability to do just that, there’s also a 5″ heel and that little bow at the front to contend with.

(Er, those sunglasses also come in a polka dot version. Don’t think I wasn’t tempted…)




  • In my younger days I had a black and white checked pleated skirt and I came across court shoes that match. I loved the wearing them together so I think you should have gone for the matching sun glasses.
