Hi bees, today I finally bought my shoes!!! They have the perfect color – it totally fits my color combo (lavender-creme-chocolate)! There were some many pro’s for those shoes:
- they were cheap (29€)
- they are made of real leather
- they have a cool wood-style heel
- they are really comfy
- I bought them in a store (not internet), so I could try them on before…
Okay and here’s the little con: they are very plain and simple. Here they are:
So I’d like to change the con into another pro and would like to ask you – what can I do to make my shoes WOW!
Here are my ideas:
1. A flower in the back, something like this, but not so big (this is actually my birdcage-veil flower, bought at H&M for 4.95€!!).
I think I would consider rather purple than white… saw flowers in this color. Does it match?
2. A „bling“ in the front: something like this (?) http://diy.weddingbee.com/topic/shoe-bling
I’m not sure if the shoe clip should be clear or purple… however I would put it on both shoes (other than in the link above).
What do you think is more wearable after the wedding?
I would appreciate any ideas and opinions!

I like the big white flower in the back, but make it smaller like you said.

I like them with the purple broach. I guess that’s the most popular one huh?

Most wearable after wedding would be broach…but I like the white flower idea and think it would look great!

I love the big white flower – made slightly smaller maybe. I think Miss Sewing posted a tutorial on “shoe hats” (shoe clips basically). You could do that for the flower and then be able to take it off later and wear the shoes plain afterwards.

I like the white flower too…as long as it was a a little smaller…I just really like the white with the color of your shoes!

I really like the flower idea (I am considering a shoe in ivory that has a flower in the back). I also LOVE the purple brooch and now I am thinking that I could do something like that to add some color! You have some great ideas and I think whatever you choose it will look awesome! Your shoes are lovely btw and it is such a plus that you actually got to try them on and they are comfortable. It will wonderful for dancing! =)

I really like the idea of a large flower clipped on the back. I think that would be really fun and unexpected!

I don’t like the idea of a flower in the back b/c it could get caught on the dress when you walk or feel funny.
Imho, a shoe clip with either lavender crystals on it or a flower clip in the center of the shoe would look great.

Found it for you!

@ Ms.Teddy, LadyGoodman, His Barista Thanks for giving your opinion! I really thought, the white flower wouldn’t be my first choice, but the more opinions I hear, the more I also consider this option
@ Tonya2010 Thanks for your support :). I think you should go for the flower or some stunning brooch, since I know your beautiful J.A.-dress and I know your feet will be seen 🙂
@ bellenga Thanks for the advice – I will try the shoes on while DIY-ing if I decide I’ll do the flower and it will bother me I will have to go with the brooch…
@ littlemissmoo Thanks for the link. Maybe some ladies here will need it too. 🙂

Hi bees. You know how important shoes are ;)… just can’t close that topic!
I just thought of attaching a bow to my shoes. Since I’m indecisive as hell (again) I wanted to ask you. What do you think of the bow idea? Would it be better in the front or in the back? (See pics) THANK YOU for any comment! I’m sorry I cannot put it into the poll now…

I wouldn’t put anything on the shoes. Although I wouldn’t call them plain, they look best “plain” (unembellished) and you can wear them again. I’m sure some of the clip type things are removable but really, they just don’t look good at all. Let the color speak for itself. And sorry, but I think the bows look worst of all.
