Shoe of the Week – Peep Toes

My love for the 50s is undeniable and can be seen frequently in my wardrobe choices. I adore the fashion from that time and this style is clearly connected to one of my favorite types of shoes. I have been looking for the perfect pair for quite some time, as they are in my opinion definitely needed in every shoe closet. Those shoes are classic, but shoe a bit of individuality. The opportunity to shoe toes and their possibly colorful nail polish (well taken care of nails are a must, with or without colorful polish), gives the peeptoes a funny twist.

Peep Toes

{Pesaro; Thrifted}

Peep Toed shoes have been around for quite some time. They emerged during the 1930s, when the great depression made the people wish for happy fairytale lives. Styling further evolved and women dared to wear shoes, preferably pumps, with little openings in the front that showed just a tiny bit of the toe nail.During that time, this was daring and a small evolution for the female emancipation in terms of fashion.

For a Birthday party


A birthday celebration calls for a special outfit. Wear what you feel comfortable, but still fashionable in. You should never outshine the birthday girl though. Wear a pretty dress and combine it with some cute accessories. A cardigan keeps the outfit party appropriate for a house party and taking it off can easily change the styling. I finished the look with a beehive hairstyling.

(In the photos you see me barefoot, but I swear, I wore those shoes, but the guests had to take off the shoes for this event!)

For a day with the best friend


Meeting your best friend gives you an opportunity to try out all the pieces you bought together on your last shopping spree! This outfit was inspired by the maritime look that is so popular right now. Blue, red and white are the signature colors and belong to the styling as well as striped shirts. Combine one of those with a red or white skirt and add some brown leather or striped accessories. I also added a pretty hairdo that was Casey's super cute hair stylings.
