    Ok, I know you are all a resourceful bunch, and like a good challenge. I am trying to find the perfect shoe, and apparently I am a little picky. I also hate not being able to try things on, but alas, I think my best options are online.

    Here is what I THINK I am looking for in my ideal shoe:
    - low heel; I got my dress tailored to barefoot height and the woman suggested I get no more than a 1" heel
    - i am trying to avoid the flip-flop style with the part between the toes, because that part always bugs me after a while. i was hoping for some slide-on shoes, but could be flexible here!
    - no ankle straps!
    - my dress is ivory w/silver accents (threading & sequins), and an embroidery type detail - see below for picture
    - I do want to keep it somewhat simple - but yet I don't want boring, I just keep thinking of the cool shots Leigh could get if I had some fun shoes!
    - I definitely like the antique look if i go w/any jewels on the shoe, but ...
    - I am also considering incorporating some blue (a subtle aqua) into the shoe if i found the right one - here is a sample of some blue crystals/gems and styles I do like (just make them into a shoe!)

    (these might be cute if they were real shoes, and more "antiquey" and a lower heel)

    Here are some styles I like, but they're not right in other ways:

    These are really cute - but might be too high:

    Whew, I think I need to go to bed now. Post your ideas please - and I will be forever grateful!

      i love these vera wangs...they're probably too pricey though but i think they're just gorgeous and they come in ivory

        I do love those Vera Wang's - but the heel looks pretty high. Where are all of these from? You're awesome - thanks, Melissa!

            i would love those last ones in a lower heel! they'd probably also look great w/the aqua detail too. ahhhhh! there's always something.

              Well Ann I can offer you no advice. EVERY shoe I fell in love with had a high heel, I also had my dress made with no shoes, and they just don't make great cute shoes in low heal. SO I found a pair at David Bridal that "works" Nothing great but most of my pictures will be on the beach so I didn't want to stress too much about the shoe. I'll see if I can find the link to my shoe.

              BTW, you can buy a plain shoe and add some blue crystals to dress it up...

                I was totally thinking of doing that, Tammy - if I found some cute plain shoes in a style that I likd, I could just glue on some "bling" in a color and design that I like. I just may end up doing that afterall.

                    Ann, we're in the same boat! I can't find shoes either. I logged on this morning and hoped someone would have found something perfect for you, but alas, the search continues. I'm looking for something similar to what you describe, only with red accents, if any. I'll keep my eyes peeled for you too...
