Vintage 1950s Inspired Wedding: A Bridal Shoe...Something Old and Something Midnight Blue!


The beautiful California bride, Annette Summersett, in this photo is wearing a stunning pair of vintage original 1950s Sesto Meucci Italian designer shoes in midnight blue from our Etsy sister shop LaOohLaLa Boutique! It's such an honor to see these elegant pumps accenting the nostalgically glamorous mid century fashion style of this bride's dreams!

Reminiscent of a romantic Cinderella glass slipper fairytale, she said, "from the very beginning they were a part of my vision", as they beautifully complemented her fifties inspired wedding! I'm so happy that this gorgeous vintage pair of shoes found their sole-mate (pun intended) bride-to-be! They were with her as she walked down the aisle and as she danced with her sweetheart! 


In LaOohLaLa Boutique, we currently have another pair of vintage original 1950s Sesto Meucci Italian designer shoes in this very same style, with the peep toe design and art deco ruched bow embellishment; however the pair we have is in stock is black in color instead of midnight blue (we only have one vintage pair available in a size 6M)...their Italian leather exterior is so soft and lusciously luxurious! I encourage all vintage shoe fashionistas to take a moment to admire the other Old Hollywood heels in our boutique as well!

These shoes are so cute! I'm so glad that many brides still love that "old-vintage" look. I'm hoping that when I get married my husband will be on board with the whole vintage style because it's something I've always been a huge fan of. I love the tea length style of wedding dress, with cute little retro pumps. I know that many retro style items can be hard to find. Do you have any recommendations of websites that sell vintage accessories for lower prices? Also, do you have any unique ideas for a vintage themed wedding?

As a little side note: Nowadays I've heard that more and more women are deciding to not follow the traditional, "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue." What is your opinion on this? I've noticed that younger generations seem to shy away from older ideas. I'd like to hear your opinion on this topic.

Thank you for sharing Shelby and for stopping by my blog! I'm also dreamy-eyed and in love with vintage inspired weddings...and retro tea length wedding gowns! I was overjoyed to play a part in helping Annette find her vintage original 1950s wedding shoes that featured her wedding color and complemented her fifties inspired wedding. I actually wrote up a blog article showcasing some of my favorite vintage bridal apparel, accessories, wedding shower decorations, and more (the article link is posted below); many of which can be found in my Etsy sister shops "LaOohLaLa Boutique" and "Storybook Artifact". I would love to welcome you to the coupon codes for our Etsy shops (I think that I may be able to send them to you through Google Hangouts, along with some of our other lovely genuine vintage bridal finds).

As far as "something old, etc." goes, I very much see this nostalgic wedding tradition carried out by bride's today. One bride purchased a vintage pale blue bridal garter from my LaOohLaLa Boutique Etsy shop which came with a pocket for containing a good fortune silver sixpence coin...as the old phrase traditionally goes: "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe!" My twin sister, Andrea, (who is the Etsy shop owner of "Storybook Artifact") and I are 27 years old; my wedding was 7 years ago and Andrea's was 8 years ago and we are both lovers of yesteryear's romantic sentiments...we each incorporated the "something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue" tradition into our bridal ensembles (my "something blue" was my dear late mother's bluebird necklace and Andrea wore our grandmother's sapphire and diamond bracelet). I think that it is thoughtfully heartwarming to carry out this old tradition, and for all the brides out there, I suggest being prepared to answer the questions of sweet elderly lady relatives who inquire about it...because they most certainly will!
