Grandma's shoes

 I have no idea what that shadow is, but it's a bit funky ; )
Zara tee
Marcs shirt
Bardot skirt (simliar ASOS versions here, here & here)
Vintage heels (simliar exxy stunner here)

When I spotted this skirt I had to have it... I didn't care if it fitted, suited me, whatever... I was instantly in love with those pretty blush pink pleats! 

NOW to the shoes, these suede heels are from my Grandma- 1950's originals.  How AMAZING are they!  And I might add that both my Grandma and my YaiYai (Greek for Grandma) are amazing style icons and wonderful role models to me.  My YaiYai passed away about 15 years ago now but I still remember her so well.
Do you have a stylish Grandma?

Why not join me on FACEBOOK .... would love to see your there!!

  3. This is such a nice outfit!! I love the look of a white shirt in a less worky outfit. And those shoes are fabulous!!!

    I don't know if my Nanna is that trendy, but I reckon my mum is! She gives me a run for my money!

  31. Aw, I am sorry to hear about your YaiYai. I lost my grandmothers and I love them and miss them very much. My Grandma Wagner was very stylish and I recently inherited all her old jewelry. It is always so special. I love your Grandma's shoes. They are beautiful and I am so glad you decided to take it in because it is gorgeous.

    That skirt is so pretty, and the colour is really nice.

    You can tell your YaiYai had great style from the shoes. I came across pictures of my Grandma in the 60's and her style is amazing and I also found it quite freaky just how much her and my mother look alike.
