    The first one looks much more elegant. The second one looks a little less formal. More like a night on the town with the girls kind of shoe!   But I like the satin of both of them.

    Having not seen your dress, I’m going to go with the 2nd pair. So sassy and funky. Lol, I’m on the DSW site right now shoe hunting even though my wedding is super far away. All these shoe posts are makin’ me crazy!

    I think that they are both beautiful! The first is probably a bit more formal (but wow is 4" high!) while the second is a little more flirty! I personally would choose the second one.

    Could you exchange the first ones and get the second if you really want them?

    I don’t think I would wear both, because they are so similar that most people won’t even notice. It would be one thing if you were wearing white shoes to the ceremony and then changing into purple, but these two pairs are very similar.

    I think the first pair fit the style of your dress better. Beautiful choices!

    Both so cute…I am jealous of two things:  (1) that you can walk in 4 inch heels… and (2) that there are so many cute shoes in NOT my color (orange) : (

    I basically want your shoes in a 2 inch heel and brightish orange.  Like this:

    Or:

    I think these colors may be too muted though.  I may just buy them online and see what they look like in person.

    I should probably be posting this on the orange shoe thread I started : )

    I love the Electra! I’ve seen both in person at Dillards and the Electra is amazing!

    I like the Kyleen because I personally don’t like ankle straps on peep toe d’orsays.  I dont’ know why.  I think they’re perfectly fine on mary janes and sandals but for some reason, I just don’t like them on peep toes.  Secondly, even though your dress is long, if you happen to lift it up during the reception or change into a shorter dress an ankle strap breaks the line of vision at your ankle.  So it doesn’t visually lengthen your body which a heel would normally do.  I’m a short bride so this kind of stuff matters to me 🙂

    I love both of the shoes!  I wish they had them in my color.  You would think its easy to find cute shoes in blue, but my blue is more of a teal/turqouise and its super hard to find shoes in that color.  I might end up getting them at Alfred Angelo or Davids Bridal and finding a color to match and having them dyed.  But I wish I could find super cute ones like those!
