Never thought I consider this...but dyeable shoes? Anyone????

Recommended Posts

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!!

@JayKay....I think I am remembering a wedding I was in many years ago and the shoes were HIDEOUS!!!!  Fortunately dyeables have gotten cuter!  I think I may go that route....I am going for the Goddess look....but I don't want to be a 20'' statue!
