Glamorous Bridal Shoes from Rachel Simpson

July 23, 2012

Shoes are like the cherry on the wedding dress pie! They’re not your first thought when you get engaged (well not for most brides anyway – I am sure there are a few exceptions :)) but they complete your look. And I for one really struggled to find something I felt represented a modern twist on a glamorous vintage shoe….. well not without them costing me almost as much as my dress! I also wanted shoes that I could wear again. If only I had known about Rachel Simpson! The moment I laid eyes on her fabulous new collection, I knew she would have had the shoes for me….

The business has come a long way since then but continues to maintain all the original ideas. Stylish design, originating in elegant vintage ideas; beautifully made shoes from factories small enough to be as close as to handmade as possible; and at prices which offer real value for money.

I love that Rachel has been so considerate with each style featuring a mid or low heel, creating beautiful, fashionable and elegant shoes that can actually be worn all day!

“This season sees a return to elegance; simple shapes with intricate detailing and dainty stitch work, reminiscent of shoe-making from a bygone era.

Colours are soft and warm, with soft metallic suede and pearlised leather giving an antique, worn look. Soft gold and nude tones feature heavily- a stylish progression from traditional ivory. Ivory also features, with metallic detailing and two-tone combinations of both colour and texture adding a unique twist on tradition...”

And her core collection is full of as many lovelies…. Rachel Simpson New Collection - Tilly

Including my personal favourite…… I love a pop of colour under a bridal gown and there’s always something a little naughty about red shoes ;)

  1. Wow! All the shoes look gorgeous. I like the most the one in color red. Red is my favorite color. I hope I could have one like that.
