Marilyn Magic with Royal Vintage Shoes

 

In 2016 I’ve had to absolute privilege of being a brand ambassador for Royal Vintage Shoes, the store run and operated by the lovely Lauren. This store stocks an array of amazing shoes which are inspired by the 1920’s through to the 1940’s. Her service is amazing and her stock wonderful! So you can imagine my excitement when she begun releasing sneak peaks of her first collection of Royal Vintage Shoes, of her own design and make. These incredible shoes are all inspired by iconic shoes of the 1940s and I knew instantly that I had to share my favorites with you all!
The Marilyn Pumps in red are inspired by heels worn by the amazing woman herself. As I delve back into wanting to wear wiggle styles more, I knew these pumps would be perfect to give a Marilyn feel to my outfits.
The Marilyn Pumps are the perfect heel for everyday life to evening wear. Their classic cut makes them comfortable without compromising style and the heel is high enough be evening appropriate. I personally love the V style cut across the top. I think it’s such a simple way of adding some elegance to the shoe and I love how this shape gives shape to my legs.
 
 
Sizing on these beautiful heels does run half a size big for someone with relatively ‘standard’ shaped feet. I found that as the front of my foot is quite wide across the bottom (just up from where my toes are), I wouldn’t have been able to size down comfortably. They are a teeny bit long for me but its nothing a simple gel insert couldn’t fix.  These shoes are leather, so will stretch a little once broken in and are incredibly comfortable to wear. They have good arch support and I didn’t have any blistering when breaking these in, even though I didn’t wear stockings.

 

 

I love the authentic feel these shoes bring to an outfit. The design is incredibly versatile as well. I can swap it from my ‘true vintage’ looks across to my mainstream pinup looks like this. For ladies who aren’t feeling the red, these amazing pumps also come in black!
For a first release of a new brand, these are absolutely incredible. Lauren’s attention to detail is amazing, especially when noting the reference to old photos. I am so in love with my Marilyn pumps and I cannot wait to share the other amazing styles that I’m loving from the first release by Royal Vintage!
 
 
 

 

The amazing Marilyn Pumps retail for $150US but I can absolutely promise the quality is worth it. For comfort they are incredible! Royal Vintage Shoes ships worldwide with tracking and I almost always have my shoes the week following my order. Customer service is always A+ with Lauren!
 
I hope you’ve enjoyed this blog post and I cannot wait to share the other styles I love with you all!
