Christmas Party Prep

It is finally December and it's been a whirl wind few weeks full of Christmas prep, new brides, a new kitten and of course Christmas parties. This week is the LAWA office party and we are looking forward to a evening filled with glitz & glamour, chocolates & champagne! My love for metallics is perfectly suited for this time of year and I am getting my gold heels out to play!

I love this baroque rough lace midi skirt, a steel from Next. I will wear it with a playful box clutch and some bold gold jewellery and our glamorous gold Marlene heels. This peep toe dance shoe in crackle finish gold leather, perfect for the christmas party season as well as weddings and evenings out.

This golden beauty is made from pale gold crackle kid leather and glitter. It has a comfortable 70mm stiletto mid heel that is covered in the crackle leather. This shoe is very feminine & pretty and fits like a dream. You will be able to wear them all day long and dance your night away.

Today we want to wear...



Miu Miu biker clutch - Michael Kors Jersey Jumpsuit - Saint Laurent gold-plated ring - Love Art Wear Art Cala shoe boots

Its cold but sunny and I'm heading into town for a meeting so today I want to wear something comfortable and bold. I am a sucker for a jumpsuit and I have fallen for this jersey one with zip detail from Michael Kors. I would style it with a playful clutch and some bold gold jewellery and our eye catchy red Cala ankle boot. Cala is a fitted shoe boot with two elasticated gusset panels. This modern chelsea boot is very striking and minimal. The deep red colour will add instant drama to any outfit. The body panels are made from a mixture of dark red kid suede & leather with matching elasticated panels. It has a dark red patent leather curved counter and elegant 85mm covered heel.

Also available in black & tan... http://bit.ly/YWqshP

LAWA Real Weddings - Melita & Tom

Melita Tomic & Tom Griffiths live in Western Australia and their wedding was held on April 5th 2014 in Perth. The ceremony took place at St Denis Church and the reception at The Brown Fox. Melita looked lovely in a 1920's inspired beaded dress that she accessorised with our Scarlett Cream t-bar dance shoe. I am in love with the setting and the old school touches, from the pretty wedding invitations, her lovely beaded gown to the bold & bright flowers. A day full of colour and fun!

Find your Dirty Dancing heels

Since Patrick Swayze showed the world that no one puts Baby in the corner, Dirty Dancing has had a soft spot in most girls hearts.

At a recent bridal show I was chatting to a bride about finding her the perfect dance shoe for her wedding day. We both thought the most classic one must be Baby's last dance outfit & heels from Dirty Dancing. The romance of that dance has even inspired some awe/laughter inspiring first dances videos that has become a regular fixture on youtube. Going all out like that might not be most brides cup of tea, but owning the perfect pair of dance shoes still is!


Here at Love Art Wear Art we have always been big fans of dance shoes. Nothing beats the comfort and elegance of a beautifully crafted bar shoe for your special day or a glitzy occasion. So as a homage to Dirty dancing here are the top 3 Love Art Wear Art dance shoes! Which one is your favourite?

1. Marlene

Marlene - 1050's inspired and made from fine gold glitter & crackle kid leather

2. Scarlett

Scarlett - Deco inspired and made from cream satin, platinum glitter & soft gold suede

3. Bella

Bella - A butterfly beauty from fine gold glitter leather and ivory satin

Shorter Wedding dresses rocks!

I am a big fan of shorter wedding dresses, they look fresh, chic and original, and it's all about the shoes right? 

Well we love the fab combination of this blush tea-length corded lace and tulle dress (from Pretty Woman) with our classic Scarlett t-bars, so pretty! This fab feature is in the October issue of Scottish Wedding Directory.


There is something fabulously vintage about a calf length dresses. Here are two of my favourites. Left: This black belted tulle and lace dress is available from Rock the Frock Bridal boutique. Right: This gorgeous 3/4 sleeve tulle gown is from Justin Alexander. Now if only I can get that cherry red car...

LAWA Real Weddings - Jade & Christopher

Jade Lamson (now Sheridan) and Christopher Sheridan had a very creative and fun wedding. The wedding was in August 2014 at Gabbinbar Homestead in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia. Gabbinbar means peace. The theme for the wedding styling was Autumn Charm - Garden Party - Celebration of Love.


The beautiful outdoors setting is perfect for this vintage garden party wedding and all the couples personal touches adds a really individual sense of style. We especially love the wedding lamas! I think every wedding needs at least one!

A must have summer trend - Mule Wedges

Mules might be something you once associated with your granny but there has been a significant revamp for SS14. The heels are higher and the silhouettes are more modern and edgy.

Below you can find our 8 favourite wedge mules for the season. Wear them with boyfriend jeans or, if you want a more feminine look, with a tailored knee length skirt to elongate the legs. A minimal fashion-forward shoe has a way of making any outfit look more expensive.


These slip-ons are everywhere this season. From Altuzarra, Chlo√© and Victoria Beckham. The must-have shoe for this Spring Summer 2014.  Love Art Wear Arts - Garbo is a feminine example of this edgy and modern style. The lace up vamp guarantees perfect fit and we love the gold metal beading and toggle details for a glamorous finish!

A taster of next seasons new styles!

We have just received the first photos of our new season samples. I can't wait to go over to the factory next week to tweak & fit these beauties. I thought you might like to see some of the lovely new styles that we are working on. I have already fallen in love with them!




We've had a lot of requests for lower heel styles this past season, so this time round we are introducing some kitten heels. Brides that are after pure comfort but still need that touch of LAWA magic needs to look no further. The pretty Karis & Neave will be just perfect...


If a elegant dance shoe takes your fancy then the brand new Bella is looking LOVELY! Let me know what you think. I would also love to hear which colours you might be interested in. I am thinking nude, peach, sea-foam and metallic glitter combinations... what is your wedding pallet looking like? Get involved in this early stage and you might just get the perfect match for your day! 


Golden glamour from the fab new Marlene...
