Goodness me, gals, do I have one seriously swell - and very generous - giveaway for all of you here today. As you may recall from this outfit post a couple of weeks ago, I recently had the pleasure of receiving a complimentary pair of fabulously cute strawberry adored heels from UK shoe retailed Born Bad Betty.
In that post I promised to share with you more about this exciting relative newcomer on the vintage inspired/pinup perfect footwear front and today I'm going to do just that. An independent ladies shoes and accessories company with a penchant for marrying feminine touches with sizzling hot panache, the brand currently stocks a range of charming, very wearable heels and flats, as well as a seriously swoon-worthy newly launched line of mid-century perfect handbags.
The brand sprang to life after the founder discovered a massive passion for the curve hugging styles of the 1950s following the birth of her two darling children. While clothing wasn't too hard to come by, she just wasn't hitting on many pairs of well made, attractive, comfortable vintage or vintage style shoes that jazzed with her own aesthetic. And thus after months of experimentation with different styles, fabrics and embellishments, Born Bad Betty shoes came to be, with the website hopping online in the summer of 2013.
In 2014, BBB had the distinction of making it all the way to the finals in the Breakthrough Business category of the National Vintage Awards. Currently you can find Born Bad Betty's offerings in various boutiques throughout the UK and Europe, with worldwide shipping from the site's official shop. The brand’s offerings are in full (no half sizes at present) modern ladies sizes and span a spectrum of different style that are sure to find favour with fans of numerous decades.
Fun, fresh, beautiful and more than a little bit stylish, Born Bad Betty's shoes - which marry sweetness with glamour and plenty of pinup girl-ness allure - are a great way to add pizzazz and a pop of old school style to your wardrobe. I've dotted photos of some of their glamorous and very wearable offerings throughout this post to help give you a sense of what this line carries, but you'll definitely want to click through to BBB's website and checkout the full range for yourself.

A new pair of shoes and spring go hand in hand like the Easter bunny and carrots in my books. It's time to set your feet free from the doldrums of winter and let them shine once more - sans risk of frostbite - and what more charmingly stylish way to do that than in a pair of Born Bad Betty's awesome vintage inspired offerings?
I know that I'll definitely be putting a lot of miles on my strawberry stunners this spring and summer, and would be willing to wager that the winner of today's Born Bad Betty giveaway will be enjoying their new pair of heels or flats a great deal, too, in the coming sun-kissed months.
Thank you very much to Born Bad Betty for so kindly offering one of my awesome Chronically Vintage readers the chance to win any pair of your gorgeous vintage inspired shoes of their choice, and to all those who take part in this fun giveaway.
Fingers and - rather fittingly in this case :) - toes crossed that you win!
