elissae, J Crew actually has tons of leather ballerina flats and you may be able to find a butterfly embellishment like the one below at Michaels or another craft store. Just an idea to keep in mind to lower the cost of your dream shoes! Good luck!

My shoe dream...
Well, I found my dress...made the deposit & ordered it. A few days later I started to doubt my dress decision and asked my dad (in heaven, my guardian angel) for guidance. Let me know whether you think it's the right one! (Even though I cried when I had the dress on!) Anyway, later that day as I was browsing wedding shoes on the internet. I knew I wanted to wear a flat / little heal blinged/embellished thong like sandal...since I am 5'10 & Bill, my FI is 6'1. I came across these ballerina peep toe flats....I started to cry. See, my father's sign to our family since we lost him 17+ years ago...is a butterfly. Whenever we see one - it's when we seem to miss him or need him the most. You can imagine my emotion when I found these.
Well, for a mere, $654.10 plus $42.00 shipping to the US I can own them for $696.10! As beautiful as they are, I do not think I can justify the cost. Although, seeing these made me realize Dad was telling me I picked the right dress. I will find a way to incorporate Dad to my day, a butterfly somewhere...I so wish I could find knock offs of this shoe. Fellow brides, please keep your eye out for me! I have time....April 2013. xoxo
