I had my first dress fitting yesterday. I have been maniacally looking for yellow of navy satin shoes before this. Found 2 pairs, neither have worked out. So I brought these reliable 3 inch ivory strappy shoes to the fitting thinking "these will do, I can make them cute with silk flowers or something"
Not so much, I put them one and the dress is too short with them on. The woman altering my dress did all sorts of measuring and concluded I could wear shoes no higher than 2 inches. VOMIT. I hate wearing kitten heels, they make my legs look fat. Side note: I am not an amazon woman, I’m 5’8".
So now to add to the impossible task of finding navy or yellow satin shoes – I have to find them with a heel of 2 inches.
Can anyone help?!?!

Is it possible to cut the heel down, you can try taking it to a shoemaker.

maybe, I’ve heard mixed reveiws on changing heel heights.

If your dress is long nobody will notice your legs 🙂 It stinks though if you can’t find ones you like or that you will re-wear.

Miss Chicken has a point there. No one’s gonna see your legs/calves under a long dress, so so what if your legs do look fat in short heels (I know what you mean – I think flats make my feet look like ronald mcdonald’s personally ),

true, my legs won’t be seen. But I still can’t find 2 inch heels that dont have Safe-T-Straps or old lady support heels or pointy toes or rhinestones – can you tell I am a shoe girl and very particular! 🙂

I think you will have a lot more luck look for a cute yellow flat….sad, but true.

Here ya go, I actually have these in lt. gold for my wedding. They are really comfy, 2" and cute, at least I think so! It says 2.5" but I think they’re slightly lower. You can always have about 1/4" hacked off by a cobbler.

unfortunately I have a pair of Culvers in black and I don’t like them, they aren’t comfy on my feet 🙁 Its a shame because they are cute and my mom keeps finding them online and showing me them!

nina shoes: you can create your own shoe, color, and heel. Good luck!

how about dyeing some? myglassslipper.com and bellisimabridalshoes.com have tons of nice ones, including some good designer shoes, most of the white ones are dyable. you can search by heel height.

My sandales are about 2 inches and it doesn’t have any of the features you mentioned you hate… It’s from JCrew. It comes in diff colors, so maybe it will work for you?
I couldn’t attach my picture, so I just checked on JCrew, it only has Gold color left, Braided metallic-leather strappy sandals, item 15935

I’ also 5’8" and am having the exact same problem (except I’m looking for satin navy or lime green shoes)! When I tried on the sample dress, it was a size 10 and the length with 3-in heels I had brought with me was fine. When I got my dress and went to try it on to make sure it was the right dress and everything the dress was too short with the same shoes! I can relate to being very particular about shoes too. Good luck!!
