    Hi Ladies....I was wondering if anyone here have had their shoes dyed or intend on getting dyeables.  Here is my dilemma....

    My dress is ivory and our colors are yellow & turquoise (I recently decided to add a splash of pink too).  I have become obsessed with finding turquoise shoes....AND....I have looked everywhere!  The issue is, I am already a tall woman...5'11 and I don't want to tower over my Dad (he is so cute and compact) and I don't want to be tall as (or taller than) my fiance.  Shoes I have seen in my color are all 4'' or higher (sheesh!).Sooooo today at work, I came up with an idea (lol) to get the shoes dyed.  I have found some AWESOME shoes that want make me look like"Attack of the 50 foot woman" online. I called and was advised that I could buy the shoes from the site, try them on and send back with a swatch and they would dye them...for $12.00 (shoes are reasonable too).  If I sent my own, the dye job would be $25.00 (hmmmmm). 

     

    Has anyone tried this?  I really want turquoise shoes!!! But I don't want to be 7'' walking down the aisle with my compact Dad!

    I have had a pair of shoes dyed before.  I was a bridesmaid in my friends wedding and she wanted us all the having matching white shoes.  They were dyable shoes, so after her wedding I dyed them a blue color just because I thought I would never wear the shoes if they were white.  They turned out great and were exactly the color I wanted.  I say if you can't find any shoes you like then consider dyables.  Its a great way to get a great shoe and the color you want without being 4 inch heels!!
