- Reddened ft. Rainbow Club...
The colour of energy, passion and courage. Red is a positive colour; it's energizing, uplifting and exciting. In my opinion when in doubt, wear red. It's one of those colours you instantly feel confident in, and why shouldn't us ladies be brave and make a statement? Don't give me that jibber-jabber that you don't suit it, I strongly believe it flatters all skin tones - even us paler ones. The sun is shining and for a lot of you, it will soon be prom season (
*sigh* I feel so old). For us with school days well and truly behind us, Summer tends to bring with it a lot of other special occasions such as: Summer weddings, Summer balls, a day at the races, or any other reason to glam up and celebrate Pimms O'Clock.
These formal occasions all bring with them the hunt for the perfect dress and matching shoes. Isn't it a pain once you've finally found your dream dress to then be searching high and low for coordinating heels? Well, the search is now officially over - WOO! As soon as the email landed in my inbox asking me to collaborate with Rainbow Club, I've been itching to publish this. You know the times where you're so excited to share a product/service with the world that you're practically bouncing up and down uncontrollably? Yep, that.
Georgie Girl Lace Pointed Court Shoes, £165*
Colour Pack, £25*
Rainbow Club focus mainly on bridal footwear and accessories, but their products extend to other special occasions thanks to their Colour Studio. Designing elegant shoes since 1986, inspiration comes from vintage lace, silk flowers and old buttons. Their collection of romantical shoes is extensive and there really is something for everyone.
Thanks to Rainbow Club having an in-house colour studio and shoe colour specialists, you can now get a pair of shoes that match exactly to your dress. And it doesn't stop there. If you'd prefer your shoes to match your handbag or a piece of coloured jewellery, this can also be requested. So how does it work?
HOW IT WORKS:
The first step is to choose a pair of 'naked shoes'. These are the classic white/ivory bridal shoes, you can take a look at the selection available here. I chose the 'Georgie Girl' style, which, as you can see, are a gorgeous pair of classic pointed court heels with lace detailing.
After selecting your wanted style, you then purchase a colour pack. An order form is then sent to you, along with a free postage bag for you to enclose your swatch (will be returned via trackable post) you wish for your shoes to be colour matched to. The colour technicians then get to work and create a dye to match your item and apply it by hand to your selected shoes. They are then sent out to you at no further cost.
As you can see, the shoes arrive beautifully packaged to really highlight that care is taken with your special pair of shoes. I was thrilled to see a high-quality keepsake bag was also included to ensure your shoes will be taken care of for years to come. To me, this really is the perfect solution for hunting down shelves of shoes for that special event with no success. This service is affordable, time-saving and, in all honesty, faultless.
You know what they say. Life's too short: buy the shoes!
