Dear Outblush, I have the honour of being included in the wedding parties of two of my close friends, getting married about three weeks apart this summer. While I love that I am being included, being a bridesmaid can be an expensive endeavor and I'd like to maximize my budget by wearing the same pair of shoes with both dresses. Luckily, my two friends have great taste. One has chosen a green J.Crew dress for me to wear, and for the other wedding I am in an electric blue Alfred Sung gown. Can you please help me with my search for the perfect shoes to go with both? I am a size 8 shoe and I live in Canada, so shipping availability to here is a must! I'd also like to keep it under $150, and I like platform heels (but not too crazy high) and the brides are both telling me to keep it on the understated side of things, something that can be a bit difficult for me. I've included links below for the two dresses I am wearing. Do you think you can help me? Thanks, Alana
