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!

Design Your Own Shoes with Upper Street

At the beginning of July I was contacted by the lovely people at Upper Street Shoes. My interest was immediately sparked. “Wait? I get to design my own shoes?” I replied, “AMAZING!”

To say I became somewhat obsessed with their website for the remainer of the day would be a huge understatement (and no I didn’t get any more work done…) I probably designed about 20 pairs of shoes before the day was out! It was super easy and super duper fun. Jimmy Choo has nothing on me I tell ya!

“Ever dreamed of becoming your own designer and fashioning your very own pair of shoes?” they ask. “Or have that special outfit you just can’t find the shoes to go with? Or you simply crave a unique pair of heels that nobody else has?  Upper Street allows you to design your own gorgeous pair of unique shoes and have them delivered direct to your door all within a few weeks. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without it!”

Upper Street is a new online shopping experience that allows women to design their very own pair of unique hand-made designer shoes.  With hundreds of different style combinations in an extensive range of beautiful and exclusive materials, colours and embellishments from sizes 2-10, there is a pair of heels to suit every woman’s passion for shoes.”

Upper Street are quite frankly the perfect company to be represented on Rock n Roll Bride. I dare you to not get obsessed with designing your own wedding shoes! Non-sucky bridal shoes a go-go!

If you follow me on twitter or facebook you will probably already be aware of Upper Street, because I couldn’t help but squeal about my excitement in discovering them. In fact after mentioning the genius idea on my various social media platforms I was inundated with replies from my similarly shoe-obsessed followers who were designing their own shoes too.

After all that ‘hard work’ playing shoe designer I couldn’t not go through with ordering a pair could I? I went for these babies – black suede peep toe platforms with a big shiny pink leather bow and leopard print trim. I called them ‘Sex Kitten.’ Oh I die!

And I have to say I’m pretty proud of my design skills, not bad huh?

Vegan Shoes For a Rockabilly Bride

Credit: Shop Spanish Moss

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!!!

Peace

Michelle

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.
