Shoe of the Month – Starlight Sparkle

Starlight Sparkle

Be a glamour puss this Christmas and twinkle those toes with this delightful pair of gold Lurex court shoes with a decorative buckle tab.

These shoes were worn by local woman Rosemary Jarrett and were donated to the collection by her daughter.

The shoes were manufactured by Saxone and would have been perfect for a festive occasion. They were sold under the brand name ‘Starlight Room’ in the 1960s and 1970s.
