This week I fell in love with this shoe drawing by illustrator Kelly Smith- it’s to celebrate the opening of the Diana Ferrari online store. The site showcases and allows you to buy straight to your door but also allows you to book stylist sessions! The illustrated shoe “Pearla” could make a stylish bridal shoe! (I do wish they’d bring back the Callista, one of my favourite go to shoes!)

A creative place to pickup chic wedding shoes, sparkly cardigans and hair flowers this one is worth checking out if you’re looking for accessories (or an excuse to buy a pretty dress of which you have plenty of occasions to wear….. engagement party, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower…).
