Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but vintage shoes sure come a close second! Just like with all vintage, there is something so special and beautiful about vintage shoes. From glamorous 1950s stilettos to the ever popular go-go boots of the 1960s and of course the amazing 1970s platform shoes are always very sought after. There are also some stunning designer vintage shoes including Balmain shoes, Versace shoes, Chanel shoes, YSL shoes, Courreges shoes and certain collectable vintage shoes from brands including Dolcis, St Michael, Charles Jourdan and Dune.
Shoes are such a great way to express your style and really bring an outfit together. A pair of vintage shoes can transform a modern outfit into something more stylish and unique as well as adding an air of authenticity to your vintage or retro look. This week, for my Fave Five, I have selected five stunning pairs of vintage shoes from the current selection available at My Vintage. For each of these items you can click or tap on the image to go directly to the product page where you can find more information and also add to your basket.
