Ah my boots! From the beginning I had decided not to wear traditional shoes although there are so many beautiful examples about such as these Christian Louboutin or these. And who says that the shoes have to be conventional?
I decided I wanted white leather boots – neat and perfectly formed and perfect for a winter wedding. Initial research on the net soon proved that finding these boots would be difficult. There were satin examples and cowboy boots but nothing that I liked. Then I found the perfect example on an American vintage clothing website. They are exactly what I’m looking for: white, leather, elegant, lace-up and I love the fact that they have some history to them. They are Victorian era boots from around 1900 and were originally wedding boots. I’d love to know what the Victorian bride who wore them looked like and how surprised she’d be to think a bride in the 21st Century would be wearing them.
