I know you get shitloads of 'please help me find shoes' emails but could you bear one more? I've been hunting for months and have come up with diddly squat. The dress is sort of a cross between a fifties starlet and a Victorian prostitute (that's how I think of it anyway).
On my head I'm going to have a teeny tiny hat thing with two-foot long feathers - natural looking ones - not bride-y white fluffy ones. Ones that look like you just pulled them out of a pheasants bum or something.
But I can't find the shoes. I was thinking maybe snakeskin - if I had the money I'd go for these - but I overspent on the dress and the feathery stuff so I can't.
We're getting married on a small island off the coast of Ireland. It might well rain. I'll be standing on grass so stilettos would be a bad idea. I'd like shoes I can walk in. I can bear a four-inch heel if it's got some chunk to it but not if it's a spindly little thing.
I'm in London but the internet's a big place and postal services still seem to work so I don't really care where they come from. I reckon 300 dollars is my tip top top. Any ideas?

When you a say a "teeny tiny hat" I hope you mean a FASCINATOR. Because if you're planning to wear a teeny tiny fucking top hat I refuse to help you with shoes.
Let's go ahead and assume you mean a fascinator.
I actually already put out the APB on twitter --> No luck. But damn, those shoes are terrific.
We don't really want knock-offs. Just something equally terrific.
