You are awesome at finding cool stuff, and I am clearly not, so I am hoping you can find me some sweet shoes for my October (2012) wedding (I am a plan-ahead type).
For reasons of comfort and my dress being somewhat short for a ball gown, I need a 2-2.5" heel. From my hours of research, the world puts out wicked flats, and the most gorgeous 3"+ heels, but interview-shoes in between.
I want something exciting and gold that will make my outfit a little more modern, and isn't a strappy sandal (because in October in Canada snow is an outside possibility). My dress is on the conservative side (think 50s vintage heirloom), so something with a punk/studded aesthetic might be a bit over the top, but I love all the shoes out there covered in glitter.
Oh, and I'm trying to avoid flats because my fiance and I have really tall families and I don't want to look super-short in the photos. I'd also rather spend $300 on sweet shoes I can dance all night in than on having my dress hemmed.
If you can help me, that would be amazing & thank you so much in advance!
Here is my shoe advice: DO NOT BUY THEM A YEAR IN ADVANCE.
You will change your mind three times. You see ten more pairs you like. You will think to yourself, "What the eff was I thinking? These are so 2011."
