I am hopeless – I’m getting married abroad in 7 weeks and have been so stressed out at work that I’m barely holding it together: I missed a spelling error on the proof of my $25/each invite (and I’m an English teacher, go figure), I barely got my marriage Visa application sent on time because I couldn’t find the "missing link" on the website (it just happened to be down the two weeks I spent frantically searching for it and making ridiculous long distance phone calls in hopes of finding it), 19 out of 23 girls declined the bachelorette (of the 4 who accepted, 2 are wives of my H2B whom I barely know), and I can’t find wedding shoes, which I desperately need so I can get my dress altered!!
Please help – here is my dress:
My colors are yellow and orange (I need to come up with a better way of stating them, perhaps "daffodil and clementine" lol) and I would love a pair of kick ass shoes in one of those colors, preferably orange. I’ve looked at every shoe online – I’ve been to the end of the internet and back – but I realize that I haven’t been down every avenue (I’ve looked at Nina’s DYO, all of the big designers, etc).
I’m not opposed to a fab shade of dark grey or even black (I would love a pair of Christian Louboutin’s with black feathers and my H2B said go for it but I’m not going to spend that much money). I’d like to keep my shoes under $400.00 – the lower, the better but I want quality and comfort.
Can anyone help me? I’m a size 8 – 8 1/2

What about buying a pair of shoes from the Dyeables line and taking them to get dyed the color you want? I got mine from there, super comfy, affordable and the dye place did a great job. Check out shoebuy.com, they offer 30 day guarantees and free shipping (and free return shipping if you buy several to try on)

oh, you said the magic word! i’m all for enabling the splurge on CL’s for the wedding! if you’re ever going to buy CL’s, then this is the ultimate occasion to get them! (this is how i justify it to myself.) the link for your dress didn’t work, so i didn’t see anything. but check shopstyle.com for a nice overview of what’s available. there’s gold too, yellow, orange, but not sure about your size. premium designer sales are going on now- you didn’t see anything online? also, go to the purseforum.com and check the CL boards for the black feathers- i think you’re looking for "mount street". i didn’t do too much checking, but worst case scenario, call Pam Jenkins in Scotland about your size- Mount Street is on sale for 364 pounds, @ $590. be sure to know your CL size in that shoe before ordering. you wrote that you didn’t want to spend more that 400, so this is only fyi. i know i have a rubber arm….of course, mount street has a 100mm heel- @4inches, be brave.
