Dream On Monday: Bionda Castana lace shoe
Picking up on the Great Gatsby trend for 1920s-inspired shoes, this practically perfect pump is from one of our favourite designer labels, Bionda Castana. The cut of this shoe is a classic 'slipper style' silhouette with a pointed toe and high sides, rendered in intricate taupe-coloured lace. What's different about it is the randomly scattered, multi-coloured Swarovski elements - giving the shoe knowing nod to contemporary trends.
The pump is also available in white, which I think would make for a perfect bridal shoe, particularly if you're looking for something a little less run-of-the-mill on your wedding day. Both are a perfect SS 2013 shoe, and I absolutely love the way they interpret vintage styling for current trends. It's a particular talent of Bionda Castana, whose stated mission is to create the perfect shoe - I think they're getting closer with every new design we see, and just can't get enough of this lovely label. The 'Gatsby' shoe retails at £400 and is available to buy now.
