Gorgeous!
This cardigan is heart-stoppingly gorgeous! The cashmere is luscious and the lace is so delicate. This little piece will not only keep you looking feminine and elegant, it will also keep you warm and toasty - perfect for a fall or winter wedding. The only problem is that, in doing so, it covers basically the whole top half of your dress - so it's best if you're wearing a simple gown, or if you're only wearing the cardigan for just before or after your wedding ceremony.

Stunning
This wrap is breathtaking. Excellent craftsmanship, elegant design, perfect fit (tts), beautiful slightly rosy color. I had to return it because it was a bit too contemporary for my vintage wedding dress, but I did so with a heavy heart. It really is a gorgeous little piece.

Pretty, but too many bows!
This little wrap is adorable! It fits well, is well-made, and the fabric is luscious. However, there are just too many bows for me (there's a large one in the back, and several on the front, and the trim is ruffled). It's very nice if you're wearing it with a simple gown; otherwise, it's just too much frill.

Pretty but uncomfortable...
I was so happy to see a Chie Mihara shoe among the offerings here! Chie Mihara shoes are always beautifully crafted of sumptuous leather, and these are no exception: the leather is soft and buttery, and the scalloped edges are so feminine! However, the ankle strap - why an ankle strap?! It shortens the leg line, and, worst of all, it is so uncomfortable! It itches and I don't think I'd think of anything *but* the ankle strap if I wore them. Other than that, the shoes run tts and the heel height is good.

Glamorous!
These shoes are not only gorgeous, but, surprisingly, they are really comfortable (especially considering the heel height!). They are extremely flattering on, and they have a vintage glamor to them that I adore. I ended up, very regretfully, returning them, but only because I decided against satin shoes. If you are looking for satin shoes, I don't think there's another pair out there that can possibly compete with these beauties!

Excellent quality, beautiful, but strange fit...
Knowing that Euro sizes often run a bit smaller than US sizes, I ordered this shoe in my regular size and also half a size larger. I was sure this shoe was "the one" I would wear with my wedding dress. Alas, it was not to be. The shoe is beautiful in real life, and the quality is impeccable. But the 38 was too small, and the 38.5 fell off my heel when I walked. Too bad - they are beautiful!

 Elopement Pumps
Elopement Pumps
Vintage-styled, robin's-egg-blue leather slip-ons, featuring a specially designed, shock-absorbing memory-foam insole. By Hey Lady. Leather upper; leather sole. 3" leather wrapped heel. Imported. We’ve found that this shoe runs a bit small. To get your best fit, we recommend ordering a half-size up. -->

Beautiful but fit is off
These shoes are even more stunning in real life than in the photo. I ordered half a size up, as recommended, and they were still very small. So I ordered another half size up, and they were *still* too small - the white scalloped edges cut into the top of my foot before I'd even taken a step. It's a shame, because the footbed felt incredibly comfortable, thanks to the foam cushion - it really hugs the bottom of your foot. One more detail: all the other shoes on this web site are made in Spain or Italy, from what I've seen, while these are made in China; their price seems a bit much for being made in China. In short, if you can find the proper size, they will probably be very comfortable, and gorgeous as well.
