    Your first pair looks good; or if you’re thinking of doing the second; I’d search for a completely different pair.

    The shoes as they are, are pretty awesome! I know you’re set on the pink— but if it’s doable- would you settle for dying them pink instead of adding pink crystals? I think that could look really pretty. Just a thought! Good luck either way!

    edit: I played around with photoshop too.. although I’m not very good!

     Like them as they are but I would go with a lighter pink on this shoe or get another pair and go all pink

    I think it depends on your dress and venue. If it is classic and church based i would keep looking.

    Just an FYI if you are going to strass (I am learning this as I strass my shoes) get something fabric(suede/satin/velvet).. Also, acrylic sparkles REALLY pretty (I’m thinknig the glass crystals I ordered will too).. Swarvoski is VERY expensive.. I did a breakdown this morning of the crystals I will be using/would have used:

    for 21,600 of the glass crystals I paid $170.40 for  22,000 acrylic (they only sell them in 1,000 piece groups) it would have been $72.74..For the same number of Swarovski (as glass) you would pay $578.07 (including shipping from fire mountain), using 2, 3, and 4mm stones…

    ETA: Another FYI, make sure you break the shoes in prior to strassing, they will not stretch afterwards

    they just look clunky and not elegant at all. so i would look for something totally different.
