O Hai! It's Our Mid-Summer Sale!

If you've been following us on Instagram or Facebook, you'll know we're having a super-awesome mega sale!

This is a pretty big one - it's a big step for us, too! For our little company, this sale marks the departure from carrying other brand's footwear to going our solely (hehe, get it?) on our own. From this point forward we will only be offering shoes of our own make from Royal Vintage and American Duchess.

We are clearing out ALL Chelsea Crew, b.a.i.t., Miss L Fire, and Aerosoles. We also have two Royal Vintage styles on sale - Dolores in green and Marilyn in black

You can help us make this transition and snag some
beautiful vintage-style shoes for an amazing price too.

Royal Vintage Shoes + Revival Retro Boutique, London!

In my last post, I mentioned I visited the wonderful London shop Revival Retro. I had the opportunity to pitch the amazing owner, Rowena, on our various designs, so I took with me a suitcase full of shoes - 22 different styles!

Much business was discussed over Swedish cardamon buns and coffees, and many shoes were fondled and tried on, and by the end of it all - I'm so excited to say - we have a new, wonderful business relationship!

UK ladies, you know that awful, rage-inducing feeling you get when Parcel Force tells you you still have to pay £xxx before they'll let you have your shoes? Well scratch that.

Now you can purchase, return, and exchange your shoes in the UK without all the pain of international shipping, import duties, and fees. Soon you'll be able to try on and walk out of the store right then and there too!

Revival has just opened up UK pre-orders for Royal Vintage Shoes on their site. You can have them shipped or pick them up in person from Revival in London. To order, visit Revival's site. Delivery will be in July.

We are beyond excited for this new development. For such a long time we've been looking for a way to make it easier for our British fans to enjoy our shoes. We couldn't be happier about teaming with Revival, a truly wonderful and unique boutique full of savvy and amazing women.

Fore more information, visit Revival's website.
Happy shopping!

A Very Vintage Trip to the UK

Hi! I'm Lauren - remember me? I've been away for awhile on a much-needed vacation to the UK. Hooray! Vacay!

It was a wonderful, restful and also stimulating trip. We did many wonderful things, and I have much to share, so just to start, here's a quick overview:

Our first full day in England was spend daytripping into London to visit the wonderful ladies of Revival Retro Boutique. I took my suitcase full of shoe samples, left with a back full of dresses and a new business relationship. :-) Royal Vintage Shoes will now be available from Revival both online and in store.

Testing, testing 1-2-3 - I wore the new "Claire" oxfords into London to check comfort and durability. A+. (Claires are coming for Fall 2017 - pre-order will open in August)

A moist hike around hilly Bakewell revelead idyllic laneways, cheese shops, and Bakewell tarts, oh yes!

Not gonna lie - this was primarily my "uniform" for most of the trip. It was chilly in the North and we did a lot of hoofin' it, so I lived in this Emmy Design cardigan, Freddies of Pinewood jeans, and Burnley and Trowbridge headscarf.

Not a bad view from the highest tower at Conwy Castle, eh?

Another to test, and more vigorously - I wore the new "Rosie" WWII Double Buckle boots for all of our days in North Wales, and really put them through strife. On this day we ascended the old city walls of Conwy and looped the town entirely.

Oh hey, lamb!

The last couple days were spent in the hot hot heat back in the South. I finally got to wear one of the fabulous dresses I'd bought at Revival Retro, and I cannot say enough good things about it. (More about this dress later)

It was hard to leave such a beautiful part of the world.
We had such a great time! I have more to share with you, including more information on the new Fall shoes I tested, so stay tuned, lovelies. <3
