Etsy Find - Everlastinglifashion

Today's Etsy find is just so amazing - you guys are going to love it!  To start, Tess, the owner of Everlastinglifashion, has such a sweet love story... "Eight years ago I married a gorgeous Englishman and moved from one of the most beautiful cities in the US (Chicago) to definitely the most beautiful countryside in the UK (Monmouthshire)... Most days I am sitting in my peaceful garden near a field of grazing lambs and sheep working on shoes for brides-to-be. I love it. No two pairs are the same. I just love working with brides-to-be to provide special and personal shoes for the happiest and most memorable day of their lives." 

Now for the designs, Tess uses her vintage style to make one of kind shoes for brides using everything from brooches to jewels to fabric.

I asked Tess about her designs and she said, "I think the most important thing that makes us different from other wedding shoe designers is that we aren't limited to copying a color but we can provide a pattern such as a floral pattern or a tartan to match the groom's kilt.  Also many of our brides appreciate that we are able to incorporate personal and meaningful items into the design that they send to us. Some brides have sent us pieces of lace from their mother's or grandmother's wedding gown or veil. Others have sent us buttons or vintage jewelery that we work into the design. So basically anything that a bride can think of we can probably do it for them."

Her designs are truly unique and beautiful!

A little something blue for your wedding day.

Love the lace on the heel!

She can also personalize flats for you.
