Design and Win Your Dream Shoes With Upper Street!

upper street rocknrollbride 4

I have been a big fan of Upper Street shoes for a long time. I mean, who wouldn’t want to play shoe designer once in a while? So when they got in touch to tell me all about their new personal inscription service, and to ask me if I’d like to give it a go, there was no way I was going to say no to an offer like that!

I am a flats girl. I’ve tried many many times to do the whole heels thing, but alas I’m just too uncoordinated. I love Upper Street for offering ballet flats in their range and it was a total no-brainer that this was the style I was going to go for. I mean, I was tempted by the fabulous killer heels, but what’s the point of designing your dream shoes if you’re never going to actually wear them!?

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of all things bright and beautiful, but I actually decided to go for something more – ahem – subtle (for me) for this shoe. I have plenty of eye-gauging pairs already and so I figured that a nice soft grey would be the perfect addition to my ever-expanding collection. The heart motif stole my… er… heart and I couldn’t stop at just one so I added one to the front and the back! OK, OK so I did go for a brilliant teal and bright, bright pink for the hearts, but give a girl a break, how could I not?!

One of the many things that I love about Upper Street is their HUGE variety of fabrics and colours. I went for a suede for the main shoe and metallic leather (oh yes!) for the hearts. Yes, of course I was tempted by the animal prints, snakeskin and patent options, in fact I had to forcibly restrain myself from adding ALL OF THEM!

Upper Street are perfect for brides-to-be (and maybe their very lucky bridesmaids). If you’ve been struggling to find your perfect wedding day shoe, then look no further! If you use their bridal service you’re treated to some lovely added extras including the new personal inscription service where you can add a cute little message. I had mine read “Designed by Rock n Roll Bride” but you could have anything. How about your new married name or your wedding date? You can even add a blue insole as your ‘something blue’ and if you have a specific material you’d like to use in your shoes they can source that for you too!

Design & Win Your Wedding Shoes with IF Ladies

win wedding shoes IF

Oh goodness have I got the best contest EVER for you today! The fashion giants that are IF Ladies (the ladies division of Iron Fist Clothing) would like to offer one very lucky Rock n Roll Bride-to-be the prize that might just make her wedding. How would you like to design your own pair of wedding shoes… and then win them to rock on your big day!?

I don’t think I really need to tell you who IF Ladies are. If you’re anything like me you’ve been lusting over their delightfully weird, wonderful and often ghoulish (the zombie stompers are still some of my faves) designs for years. But if for some crazy reason you haven’t yet been blessed with their wonder, have a gander at what they say about themselves…

“IF is fun, loud and never says ‘I’m sorry’. Colorful and out of control, our prints are known the world over for bold and badass artwork, unique designs and details that rock. Breakneck and bold as hell, IF is full of over-the-top statement pieces ranging from footwear to apparel and accessories. We’ve kicked our fashion forward, giving out style that’s effortless insolence in a mundane world. The IF customer wants to shout out to the non-believers who she is and what she wants to be. She’s the adventure hungry teen climbing over the fence, and the media savvy chick who’s a hit on YouTube. She knows that what she buys makes her own lifestyle awesome, and tells others to do the same. She is authentic and knows what’s not up to par with her lifestyle. She oozes fashion and uniqueness from her pores. She likes what she likes. And she doesn’t give a shit what you think.”

A Sunday Kind of Love: Anastasia Radevich’s Lost Civilizations Shoe Collection

If you’re a shoe fetishist like me then you’re about to die over what I have to show you. Did you ever think an underwater world could be resurrected into shoe-form? Well, behold – the Lost Civilizations Shoe Collection from Anastasia Radevich.

“Lost Civilizations is the title for the collection of shoes that narrates a story of the lost civilizations of the past, present and the future,” Anastasia told me. “The first 5 pieces of shoes walk the viewer through civilizations that, despite all technological advancements, were doomed to vanish. They have been submerged beneath the seas, after the sea level rose and flooded lands that have been host to the humans before.”

Pretty but Rockin’ Pastel Wedding Shoes from Zalando

If you’re anything like me you’ll be putting a lot of thought into your wedding day footwear, so I thought I’d give you a helping hand by introducing you to the fabulous world of Zalando. Stocking thousands of items including clothes, beauty products and (what seems like) a gazillion pairs of shoes, if you don’t find something you love here there’s probably no hope for you. Their website currently stocks over 600 brands including Melissa, Iron Fist, New Rock, Irregular Choice and Jeffrey Campbell - in fact over 40,000 products in total!

I certainly found something I loved…well a number of things actually. I’ve been obsessing over pretty pastel shades of late (perfect for Spring/Summer, which is just around the corner – hurrah!) so I thought I’d share some of my favourite soft hued shoes from their latest collection.

Pastels aren’t just for the classic princess bride you know, all of these shoes give pastels a Rock n Roll edge!
