Hi Kat

First I have to first say how friggn’ cool you are, I love your wedding blog and all your amazing posts!!! So I’m hoping you can help me. I am getting married in November in Arizona and I think our wedding is totally rock and roll!! I am having trouble finding shoes. My dress is going to be purple and our wedding has an asian flair, as does my dress. I don’t wear animal so they have to be vegan and I don’t wear heels.

I love the old rockabilly style shoes in the bold flower patterns or animal prints/ platform type but I just cant find anything that will work. My fiance is also about the same height as me, so that’s another reason I don’t want to wear heels (besides the fact that I have trouble even walking in sneakers, I’m super clumsy) Any help or direction you can give would be great!! And keep doing your amazing stuff!!!



Michelle’s email gave me the perfect excuse to take a break and do some internet shopping! I really enjoyed putting this feature together and I hope my suggestions can help Michelle find the shoes of her dreams!

Pussycat Shoes has a whole vegetarian selection. Whilst most have massive heels (I love these!) there are a couple of cute numbers that fit your criteria.

Demonia Daisy Retro Polka Dot Ballet Flats

Ellie Shoes DAYNA Cork Heel Tattoo Leopard Wedges

Beyond Skin specialise in vegan-friendly shoes and they even have a bridal section. Whilst all the bridal shoes do have heels, their overall selection is pretty fabulous!

Here are a couple of cute pairs from their ballet flats section which could work for you (be sure to go check out the full ballet flat range)

Sole – Orange & Turquoise floral

Sole – Pink Patent mainly sells more casual style footwear, but their are a couple of styles available which could be perfect!

Natural Cork pumps

Ace pump

These are also available in red or olive.

Dorothy Shoe

Also available in Black or Grey.

Vivian Shoe

Sophie Shoe (Yellow)

Also available in black

The Neon Collective also has a specific bridal section. However this Reena print shoe is to die for!

These 100% hemp shoes from Simple shoes are not only animal friendly, but are super cute to boot. I adore that button detail!


Iron Fist are one of my favourite shoes designers at the moment. Their designs are so unique and all shoes are 100% vegan friendly! Their flat range is super cute…

All Hope Abandoned Flat

…but their platform range is totally bad ass! If you can take being taller than your hubby on the day then I can’t recommend their awesome shoes enough!

Mombassa Punk Platform

I know you said you weren’t keen on heels, but I couldn’t resist sharing some of these adorable heels from Lulu. You really must go and check out their site! Not all their shoes are 100% vegan/man made but a lot of them are – including these favourites of mine.

Privileged Lydia Leopard Platform Stiletto Pumps

No leopards were harmed during the making of these utterly swoon-worthy and 100% man made platform pumps!

Mixx Luisa 10 Gold Glitter Bow Toe Platform Pumps

Dollhouse Sypreia Black Suede Peep Toe Wedge Heels

and just because these are too beautiful not to post…

And finally, my ultimate shoes obsession is the Vivienne Westwood Melissa range…and yes 100% PVC so totally vegan friendly! They are even bubblegum scented, what more could you ask for!? My favourites of the current range are these little beauties:

Vivienne Westwood Melissa Pink Lady Dragon with Skull

Also available in mint or black

Vivienne Westwood Melissa Pearl Lady Dragon with Heart

Also available in blue or red

But fret not – there are a few flat shoes in the collection…

Vivienne Westwood Melissa Ultra Girl Ribbon

Also available in blue or pink

Wow that was fun! I may have got a little bit carried away with my choices (hey, you can never have too many pairs of shoes right?!)

I have to say a huge thanks to everyone on twitter & facebook for their recommendations. I have a sudden urge to shoe shop right now! Michelle, I hope you find something fabulous to wear on your wedding day, do let me know what you go for!


  1. Heather

    Eeeeeekkkk! I’m officially in love…and soon to be bankrupt! Three weeks before the wedding this may not be good!

  2. Meep!! *beautiful*

    I’ve decided I need at least four pairs of the above so I shall go about creating four events I shall need to be wearing them four (just in case hubby asks).


  3. OMG i think im love *squeal* my favourites are the white wings and the amah-zing clear sparkly pumps! must start saving the pennies now!

    thankyou for making work today seem a little easier 🙂


  4. *love* the wings. I love them. and the sparkly ones. The silver ones are like Cinderella pumps for when she decided to give her feet a rest from the glass slippers.

  5. I got the red flocked skyscrapers for my wedding in Nov – they are amazing and it feels like your feet are covered in jelly! (smells like jelly too!) I practise walkin in them every day – and they are even prettier in real life!

  6. Jobean

    Eeeeek so pretty. I have a Vivienne Westwood dress to wear for my wedding. It would be just plain rude to not have matching shoes!

  7. Only about five or six pair that need to be in my life. I can totally justify six pair to VW shoes right? Perhaps including it in my wedding budget, “but honey, I’m starting a new trend. Instead of changing dresses, I’m going to change shoes!”

  8. Sarah

    I’ve always been quite tempted to purchase some but have been worried that they maybe sweaty, & cause the foot to slip & slide & rub. Is this the case?

  9. Jobean

    Sarah-I find that if I wear them without tights. Tights on, no problem. However my sister disagrees. So maybe its all down to individual feet!

  10. Ruth

    Eeek mine arrived on Friday and I am completely in love! They are so comfy and they smell like bubblegum 🙂 BIG love for Vivienne Westwood!!

  11. I just so happened to be in Topshop at the weekend and I was caught red handed sniffing all the Melissa shoes. Totally embarrassing, however the girls soon saw what I was doing and started doing the same so was slightly less shameful.

    I had a good stroke of the flocked ones, love them and the new heart colours are juicy as. Rather like the sparkly ones too, oh and maybe the neon… someone stop me….!!

  12. Colene

    I already have white/red heart lady dragons for my wedding, but I tried on the clear.diamante pumps last week – they were the most comfy Cinderella shoes ever. However the £199 put me off…

  13. Oooooh pretty! Already got my grubby little hands on some Lady Dragon Hearts for my wedding next year but I am very tempted in some others…just in case..

    Ps I bought mine in a size 7, and not sure if they’re a bit too big or not. Anyone who has them, is it better to err on the side of caution and get them a little big rather than too tight? x

  14. I love these boots. I got them for Christmas. I wear Uggs all the time. I have a different pair of Uggs in the same size but when I got these, these felt smaller. But as I wear them they get more comfortable. They go with pretty much everything. Cute and Stylish!
