To find a shoe...

I have a wedding coming up. Thankfully I have the dress lined up. Yes, the relief! But of course there always has to be dramas with weddings whether or not you are the bride or the guest.
.
Manning Cartell dress purchased last year. Yet to wear it. 
.
Love it. Love everything about it. The back, the sleeves, the neckline, the contrast between the fabrics, the girly and the rock star. But oh the pain, I've put on a heap of weight since getting married last year and it no longer fits. Step one: be good, eat well and exercise and lose that bloody weight. It has to fit me. 
.
Step two. I need shoes. I had these shoes in mind by Peeptoe. Purchased them at one of their warehouse sales last year for a great price. Love the red and the velvet together. Think it could work but thinking it might take the focus away from the dress. 


.I have been really good lately. I have not been doing any shopping. On a strict budget but think I need to splurge. Emphasis added on the "need".

During my search for a shoe, I came to the realisation that I have too many suede heels and I wanted to try to find a non-suede heel. To my dismay a nice shoe at the moment has to be in suede. Nice non-suede heels are so hard to find! 
.
Now for some options and some inspiration...

The world definitely becomes a better place with this Miu Miu collection. I recently went to the Miu Miu store opening in Sydney. The heels were there. I died and went to heaven. Yes really.

I love these in this colour. They also come in black. Much more affordable than the Miu Miu ones. If only that didn't matter!

Love these but way too high for me. I'm extremely uncoordinated, have a tendency to fall down steps, especially at weddings. Oh the shame. As a result, I can't do extremely high heels.

These are so girly and fun. Not sure about the bows. Would love if they came in navy. Also, probably bit too high for me.

Now for some elegance with these round toe t-bars. I love t-bar strapped heels. Now the glitter courts, cute but not sure about the heel. Anyone know if either of these heels are at the Sydney store?
.
Just noticed none of the heels are in plain leather. It's either suede, velvet or some other fabric! 
.
To conclude my pile of thoughts, what are your thoughts and suggestions?

  2. All those shoes are amazing! Loving all the velvet. I think your PeepToe shoes would look fantastic with the dress x

  3. For a second I thought you had the same MC dress as me, but no it's just the same colour scheme/sleeves (kind of). It's a gorgeous dress!

    I love those first three inspiration pics, I have never had such a strong desire for glitter shoes as I do now. Especially that gold/pink combo oh my goshhhhh

  4. Lorraine - I love the animated gif. Slightly mesmerising.

    Aelie- Thanks girly! Think I may have to go with them if I can't find a better option especially when I'm looking at other similar shoes.

    Bikini fashionista- Thanks.

    Riotersbloc- Thanks I love it. I can't wait to wear the dress. What does your one look like? I know, I've never been fan of glitter heels but there is something about these Miu Miu heels, just delightful!
