Pretty

Adding a touch of fun to the collection, and definitely the cutie of the collection, the Lulu shoe is a truly fifties inspired peep-toe with pretty double bow trim and contrast binding.

Available in ivory, peach and sky blue, she is perfect for both a traditional look, or to add a subtle pop of colour or something blue. With a comfortable 6cm heel height Lulu is wearable from day to evening, and long after the wedding too!
