How to stay pretty baby when its really cold outside - part 1

Part 1. Vintage winter shoes

One of the most important moments about winter is proper shoes! They should be warm, quality, made from natural materials. Great if it's leather shoes with pure wool or fur.  It will keep your feet warm and comfortable. Don't forget about wool socks! It's always up to date. 

Probably every girl who tries to adhere vintage style in her clothing, comes to such a problem as winter shoes. Well, I mean good-looking winter shoes, which will not be in disharmony with your stylish outfit and general look. It is a real problem to find proper piece if winter in your country is bitty and frosty. Some time ago I started to learn what ladies wore back in 1930-1950's times. Unfortunately, not many pictures can be found. Anyway there's something I found.

various snow boots

Well, and now its time to show you my treasures.
This lovely pair I bought before second Kyiv Tweed run. I was looking for some special shoes and found them! Real brown suede with pure wool inside. I have no idea where they come from and what year it could be, but I love them very much. Even though they are little bit small for me.

And here is my second pair, vintage inspired winter shoes. I ordered them in small private shoe company,  design is mine. Leather shoes with loads of wool inside :)

Now I have complete set of footwear and accessories

  2. Oooohh, I love your wintry garb so much! Vintage (or thoroughly vintage appropriate) winter boots from the 40s or 50s have been right near the top of my wish list for year, but alas, none in my size and budget have surfaced yet. Nevertheless, it's not a hunt I'm going to give up - especially give how practical and necessary they are here in Canada! :)

  3. Great post! Your winter gear is great. This is a real problem for where I live, as we're just as likely to get very, very bitter temperatures that would mean nothing is sufficient without wool socks, or sloppy snow and ice, or lots of snow. I have a few pair of vintage-inspired boots but nothing for the truly nasty winter days, so I'm still on the hunt for those. You're inspiring me to do a winter footwear post myself soon!
