Florence Wedding Shoes – Now at Cicily Bridal
Shoetopia (noun) – a higher place where we are all taken when we find the perfect pair of shoes!
This afternoon on Cicily Life we wanted to immerse ourselves in our passion, some might call addiction to SHOES!
It’s so easy to love shoes. They always fit. They don’t care if you are having a ‘fat day’ or a ‘bad hair day’. We never ask our other halves “Do my feet look big in these?”!
In our bridal world we are always on the hunt for a bridal shoe collection that makes us as excited as when we walk in to our high-street, high fashion shoe boutiques. The Cicily Bridal wedding dress collection reflects fashion forward styling and so we try to source and stock accessories that sit harmoniously alongside them. Chic, stylish but still bridal-enough for that BIG day.
So our delight on finding the Florence Wedding Shoes collection took us, without any hesitation, straight to Shoetopia!
This first collection from Florence celebrates what the brand is all about. I think you’ll agree that it has cleverly and beautifully blended the current fashion trends we are seeing on our high streets with the romance and femininity we expect from a bridal footwear collection.
There is ‘Sarah’ for the bride who can wear a killer heel all-day, every-day but then there is ‘Jacko’ for the bride who lives in trainers. In our opinion, within this seriously cool collection every bride will find a wedding shoe that reflects their personality. She won’t have to leave her fashionable, trend-conscious style in her wardrobe on her special day just because she is a bride.
As with most successful brands, Florence was created by the designer because of spotting a gap in the market through personal experience of trying to find a wedding shoe look. A look that meant not having to compromise on her fashion-forward, non-traditional, every day style.
“Having designed ladies shoes for the UK High Street for over a decade, it seemed stupid not to try and fill this gap myself! And so Florence Wedding Shoes was born. Florence is my maternal grandmother’s name. She was a feisty lady and was married to my grandfather for 50 years!
My wedding ring once belonged to her, and even though she is no longer with us, I felt that using her wedding ring on my own special day, included her somehow. Naming my brand after her felt right, somehow.”
“Florence now has a small team working towards a common goal of creating a small, exclusive bridal brand that embodies individuality and elegance, whilst still being on trend and fresh. Our shoes are made to the highest quality in tiny batches and with a lot of love.”
The Florence Wedding Shoes collection is now available at Cicily Bridal.
PS – just to let you know, I wrote this blog whilst wearing Sindy! This has been quite possibly the most difficult blog to write as I haven’t been able to stop looking at my feet! Smiley-face emoji!!
