It's dainty and dreamy and everything I wanted. My problem is that my handsome, loving, perfect fiance is only 5'7 and I am 5'5, meaning on the day of the wedding I MUST wear flats! All I have been able to find are boring white satin ballerinas resembling something my flower girl might wear! Every bride deserves fabulous shoes, even if they're flat ones! I am looking for something elegant, graceful, beaded or sparkly! Preferably silver or white. Here is a picture of my beautiful vintage inspired dress. I'm not opposed to peep toes, ballerinas, or sandals. I am open to your suggestions (and in need of them!) Oh, and if we could keep them under $150 that would be great! I know its a challenge. I have faith in you! Thank you!"
Victoria, this was a welcome challenge. I love glitzy, bedazzled shoes. After searching for a few pairs that sparkle enough to be compared to foot jewelry, I've put together a mix of ballet flats and sandals to complete your wedding day look.

Naomi here: I'm a romantic. When I shop, it's got to be love at first sight and I don't want to buy anything if it's less than love. My favorite things to shop for have to be dresses and swim suits. Whether you're dressing to nines or going beach casual for your dream vacation, I'm ready to find your next favorite look. My other hobbies: scrapbooking, DIY crafts, baking (dessert foods only!), keep my think creatively and teach me how to shop for more than the perfect outfit.
