Been coveting some of the gorgeous Jimmy Choo flats that I’m seeing! I just found these in a knockoff store:
NOW, I’m wondering the following:
1. Which would be better–the glittery gold or the red? Are red shoes a little too… tarty for a wedding? I’m 6’0 tall and want to look classy, not trashy! My dress is a geneva satin trumpet dress with a plunging v-neckline… sort-of vintage looking. I need to be shorter because FH is only 1/2 inch taller than I am. We’re having a black and white wedding.
2. Do Jimmy Choos run large or small? If I’m normally a size 10 (sometimes 10.5), what size should I get?
3. Are knockoffs worth it? Are they really obviously knockoffs? Here’s the website I was looking at:

Are you looking to buy them because they are Jimmy, or because you love the shoe itself?
There are tons of flats that are much less expensive (and more ‘wedding-y’ in my opinion) on http://www.endless.com.
Here are a few by Menbur, which is a brand i’m sort of obsessed with, comfortable, stylish and affordable:

Well, I feel like these shoes in particular have a really nice, stylish look to them that pretty much all other flats I’ve seen are lacking… I mean, look at that cute little heel! I’m definitely not needing expensive shoes, but I could make the real ones happen if I REALLY wanted to. I just was asking becasue haven’t seen anything that look so nice as these around.

I was thinking the same thing last night for these Louboutins (spelling?) I came across! But still at $100…I’d rather just get something Im totally IN LOVE WITH rather than settling for the “replica”. And I by no means mean this negatively, I have purchased plenty of “Replica” Designer bags, shoes, etc. in my day! xo

I really liked these Martinez Valero shoes. I bought them and they were too big. I decided to return the shoe (which was expensive anyway) and buy dyeables and put sparkle on myself. I can’t wait to get them. They will be cheaper but look like the originals.

I find that Jimmy’s tend to run true to size. I’m a 8.5 and I can wear 8.5 in Jimmy flats and heels w/ no problem.
Before you purchase a replica, check out shopstyle.com. Once the season is over, you @ least get them for a discount. I Love shoes so I rather save for the real thing instead of buying knockoffs. Knockoffs sizing varies too widely because of the limited quality control.

If you are concerned with the height difference with you and your fiance, what about a kitten heel or 1-1 1/2 heel? Flats may look awkward with your trumpet style gown?
