Little Black Dress Update #2

I haven't gotten my LBD back from the tailor yet (I haven't even gone in for a fitting yet -- I need to call them today and make sure everything is okay), but I decided it was time for me to seriously think about the shoes I'm going to wear to the wedding.

To match the rest of the wedding party, I need to wear silver, black, or teal. I love the idea of pumps with a high heel (but not over 4 inches; I don't want to be too much taller than my husband) and maybe a platform. I don't like shoes with really pointy toes, because I feel like they make my already-large feet look even bigger. Silver or teal pumps could be pretty basic, because the color is enough to make them stand out -- black shoes would need some kind of detail. I'm thinking closed back and toe, because it will be December and I'll be standing outside for hours taking pictures. I definitely want something classic and sexy and endlessly rewearable, and under $50.

Here's what I found:


1. Pleaser Women's Vanity Pump, $33.95, Endless (link)
2. Charles Albert Women's Spirit Pump, $29.95, Endless (link)
3. Michael Antonio Women's Lotus Pump, $39.95, Endless (link)

Little black dresses are great. Are you going to post a picture? I would totally vote for teal shoes! I love #7. This is a little black dress I won from Wise & Proper -- love it!

I think that silver would give you just the pop you need for your LBD, Mary. My vote is for #1. Except secretly I kinda love #7 too. I think that one will match the sash really well. Of the black ones I love #10. Make sure you get some insoles, though! High heels for hours is not fun!

I actually own both Madden girl shoes and got them at Ross for $16 each!
