favorite shoes giveaway

This week I photographed and listed three big boxes of deadstock (unworn!) 30s, 40s, and 50s shoes. I have more than a few favorite pairs of shoes in the shop right now and I thought I would share some of my favorites with you.

I also want to share two gift certificates for $50 to the shop. This is what you do to enter:


1. Leave a comment on this post with a link to your favorite pair of shoes in the shop
2. Tell me how you would style them
3. Follow the blog
4. Share this giveaway somewhere (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Blog)

.. and don't forget to tell me how to contact you if you win!

Two winners will be randomly selected on January 15th. Giveaway is open to international entries. Can't wait to hear about your favorites!


  1. I am in love with these
    Definitely not my size but if I could shrink my feet I'd get them in a heartbeat. I'd style them with a dress with a nipped waist, finger curls and a hat.
    Related question, were women's feet actually smaller back then, or do we get more vintage small shoe sizes because they were less worn? It bugs me. :P
    Anyway, cheers for the giveaway!

  2. I like this dress with these shoes...
    shared on face book (lili lee)

  3. I would die for these boots: since they are a beautiful classic amazingly in MY SIZE! I would style them with a 40's pencil skirt, 3/4 sleeve v neck cashmere sweater with a chunky necklace and matching earrings.

    If I were lucky enough to win this amazing contest, you could contact me via Facebook or Etsy. :) *crosses fingers super hard*

  4. There are so many! If only these would fit me I would wear them with a pleated skirt I made from a black fabric with pink pinstripes and a simple pink fitted sweater.

  5. I would most definitely love to go on a lovely summer picnic wearing these amazing 1940's wedges,, i have been on the search for a perfect pair of vintage summer shoes that will take me from day through to night! i would love to pair these shoes with a bright possibly red circle skirt and a cute summery blouse with a peter pan collar, not to mention a bright red lipstick!
