    @eocenia:  I’m torn. I love bows, and I think a bow could work and look soo cute. But for some reason I’m not totally loving this bow. Maybe it’s the blue? I feel like it would look better if the bow was all one color since the shoes are already colorful. I also think it might look better if the bow was an ivory/gold satin ribbon or maybe more of a sheer lace instead?

    I say definitely add a bow, but maybe not that bow.   That lace is a bit too casual to match with the glitter.   But bows on shoes are awesome.   Maybe something more satin-y or a glam see-thru lace.

    im such a bow girl, but sadly not in this case .. Its elegant without it (: i think MAYBE if the bow blended in with shoe abit more (eg glitter/gold)

    I like the idea of a bow. The style and shape of the bow is perfect but I think maybe a different material might look better.

    I think they’re lovely without the bow.

    I also like the idea of a bow, but not that one.  Get some gold sparkly ribbon and try a bow with that! The blue and cream lace just detracts from the sparkle.

    I’m with the other PPs. I LOVE bows–but I’m not crazy about this bow. Maybe something more like these: 





    Only with glitter that matches your shoes, of course! You’d probably need gold ribbon, glitter, and some wire (or a wired ribbon) to give it structure. 

    (These are Paris Hilton “Senorita” D’orsay pumps, btw). If I hadn’t gone with the Badgley Mischka Cleaones that I fell in love with, I’d have worn these (in blue, though)!

    @eocenia:  I think they’re perfectly lovely without the bow, but I wouldn’t rule out a different style of bow. I think what’s throwing me is that the shoes are very glam and formal, whereas the bow is very rustic/cute and the contrast isn’t quite working. I would do a bow in tulle, organza, satin, even velvet…you’re so creative I’m sure you’ll whip up a more cohesive option in no time!

    I love bows, and I support you having them on your shoes.  However, I don’t like the lace bow and glittery shoe.  Too many textures.  Maybe try  a simpler bow?
