Nothing says classy lady like a great vintage shoe. Or in the below cases – vintage inspired. I’m a big fan of old school style and I think the best way to pull it off is by mixing something old with something new. It keeps it modern.
If you’re not sure where to start – go to the classics. And when we’re talking shoes there are a couple good ole’ standbys to choose from.
The T-Strap. Bring the 40’s back in a big way with any of these gems for under fifty bucks.

And for today’s IRL shoe – you want a pin up look, what better place to find it than at a pin up shoot. These lovely vintage beauties are attached to the feet of model Martina Markota during a pin up photoshoot I modeled in this weekend. Pop of color with a colored tight – you’re ready for fall girl.
Til next time. Keepin’ it classy from the feet up.
