Pretty Small Shoes Totally Nude


How frustrating is it when you can't get your shoe size? Longing for that gorgeous pair of shoes knowing that they will never be available to you......



I have some never forgotten times when this has happened to me. The first time it hit me hard was my first day at senior school. At the ripe age of 13 going to senior school was the first sign over being grown up. You wanted to fit in with everyone and be fashionable, it felt so important

I remember my mother searching endlessly for a pair of more "grown up shoes" for me to wear at the start of the term. I knew this was important. I was a mere size 13 then and no grown up shoes were to be found. I started my first day at senior school wearing what any five year old would have worn and I hated it.

Luckily today you can still be showcase style in flat shoes, but I know if you have tiny feet, high heels can be hard to come by. Today I am sharing a brand with you that caters for the smallest of feet Pretty Small Shoes *


I chose a nude pair of court shoes, I have been searching for a pair for as long as I can remember. This pair are called New Vanilla Sky The quality is fantastic, I like that they are all completely nude, no black heel tips or sole. A very elegant looking shoe.

When my feet stopped growing at a small size two, I was in despair ! I did manage to find a shoe shop in London That catered for small feet, but boy were they expensive ! I did get a little lucky when I had the children. I went up a whole half a size, and that is still my size today two and a half to three at a push.
Things are a little easier to find shoes today, but I can still be restricted as far as style goes. So I was really happy to come across this company that caters for any size....

This is how I'm styling my nude shoes


I chose to wear this cream lace dress, the designer is Jessica Howard. I bought this in TK Maxx but it's often available in House Of Fraser. And for my American friends, this dress is available now at Macy's




                The only accessories I added were Gold Bangles and this clutch ( old- Primark )


                                               I love the detailing on the dress. It's really delicate.

I Love these Nude shoes, they fit like a glove, and I know I will be wearing them with nearly everything! Nude goes with everything right?. I'm looking forward to see what Pretty Small Shoes have in store for winter. They really have all the on trend styles you could wish for, and there is a huge sale on at the moment, so go see !

  38. Laurie, It is so refreshing to hear about a shoe company that specializes in small feet like ours! I had to do the shoe conversation UK->US and it looks like we're about the same size.

    Those shoes on you are SPECTACULAR!! Gorgeous! And I love how you've paired them with a lacy dress. Just gorgeous, all the way around!!

  39. I am so glad you are able to find shoes that suit you! These are gorgeous nude pumps. I am definitely going to share this shoe site with my sister-in-law who is a size 5 and has the same troubles as you finding grown-up shoes! I wear a size 10, so no problems for me. You look gorgeous in this beautiful dress. And that clutch is to die for! Thanks for linking up with me On the Edge of the Week. I hope to see you again next week. Have a fabulous weekend!
