Whether you’re the bride, a bridesmaid, or wedding guest, fashionable yet budget-conscious shoes are a #1 must have as we careen through wedding season. The number of pairs of shoes I have because I bought them to wear to one specific wedding is kind of embarrassing. Yet – I can’t help myself. Sometimes the shoes – and the deals – are just too good to pass up.
This year I didn’t have any early-summer weddings to attend so I just purchased what will be my end-of-summer/beginning-of-fall wedding dress (as a guest – not the bride!). I was dying for the Diane von Furstenberg black wrap dress that was out awhile ago (like the one pictured, but in black), but it was not to be. Ebay was not being very friendly to my bank account. So I found a very inexpensive replica and I’m quite happy.
But… I’m uncertain about what shoes to wear. I’m not afraid to go crazy with footwear and generally I like a lot of color. I decided to go through and pull my favorite shoes from a variety of sources, and across a variety of budgets, to see what I liked best for the upcoming weddings I have to attend.
And I thought I’d do something a little different on here – I thought I’d ask all of you for help in choosing which pair of shoes I’ll be sporting to weddings in the upcoming months! I have posted a few of my favorites below. If you like any of those, please leave a comment letting me know. If you have a different “fancy” shoe that you prefer, please leave a comment with the link and I’ll post some of my favorites in an upcoming post, along with whatever “wins” this informal survey. Within reason, I will purchase and wear the pair of shoes that receives the most votes.
So let’s get started…
The yellow sandals at the bottom are Karli Patent Dress Sandals from Payless. They’re on sale for just $14.99.
Above those are the Exchange by Charles David Dally in Gold Kid, which come from 6pm.com. They sell for $48.88. Gold is always a favorite of mine, although since gold was my color last year, I’m a little bit hesitant to go that route again.
The Poppy Open Toe Platform Pumps are next. I couldn’t resist that splash of color in the platform! These are currently on sale at shopbop.com for $119.
Finally we have the Kate Spade Glenda Camel Patent. Camel-colored shoes seem to be all the rage right now and I couldn’t resist these beauties, which come courtesy of Jildor Shoes and sell for $295. Obviously my only hesitancy with these would be the price tag…because what’s not to love?
So tell me – which of these is your favorite? Or, do you have another suggestion?
