With these lovely cream retro polka dot bow shorts, it would have been easy to create a cute pinup look with just a black or red top. Today, I chose to team it with a slightly unexpected colour – a light purple. The top is silk and its ruffles add a soft, feminine touch. I then added a pair of adorable vintage-inspired peacock earrings, a soft, slouchy black bag, and a pair of retro-inspired pumps, in pink for a splash of colour.

Let me present you with my latest purchase – these adorable black patent shoes by Hobbs. I’d been looking for something similar for a while, but couldn’t find any that satisfied my high expectations. These are leather and excellent quality. As a matter of fact, if you are looking for chic, feminine workwear, Hobbs is a great place to check out during the sales.

I love heels. I wear them just about 90% of the time and I have to say that it’s rare for me to be drawn to flat shoes. So these fuchsia and black leather pumps must be very special because I find them adorable. The bow is probably to blame as I love bows maybe just about as much as I love polka dots. And of course, they make a perfect follow-up to my Fuchsia and Black post. £39.50 by Marks and Spencer.

Accessorize has just come out with these cute patent peep toe pumps which reminded me of Vivienne Westwood’s Melissa Lady Dragon PVC peep toe shoes. These two models are both shiny, both decorated with an appliqué black heart and of course, both peep-toe. One is flat and turquoise, the other is lilac and heeled. One is £22 and the other is £88. Make your choice!

I was browsing ebay when I came across these sexy patent shoes and thought they’d be the perfect follow-up to my nautical post from yesterday—these would work well for the pin-up version of the nautical look as well as make a great addition to your wardrobe. Team with a pair of white or navy shorts and a stripey top and you’re good to go. If possible, find a way to recall the red of the shoes in the rest of your outfit—lipstick, detailing or brooch, for example.
I have to admit I am not very familiar with buying clothes on ebay, I’ve only ever bought books and DVDs from it. I am however quite interested in the idea of buying designer pieces at a cheaper price, but I’m not sure how safe it is—I don’t really want to end up with a cheap copy.
In this case however, the red pumps with bows are from New Look and the maroon platform heels are from ASOS, so I don’t think there is any risk of being disappointed. There are no bids on either of them as I’m writing this and the price starts at £1.50. Good luck. ;)
