so pretty
It was between these and the Elopement Pumps. While I went w/ the latter for our outdoor wedding, these are beautiful. The fit was fantastic and the bow was very graceful (not weirdly tacky, as they can sometimes be). The slingback didn't pinch my heel, while the heel itself was slim but not too skinny. The pictures don't do them justice.

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. -->

I've been visiting these shoes weekly...
and finally sprung for them. So glad I did! The color, shape, detailing, and heel height are fantastic. I was worried that they would be too much (of what, I'm not sure) with my (short) dress, but they look fantastic. I ordered my normal size; they're snug but not too tight.

Too prom-y for me
Lovely fit and shape, but I didn't love the contrast between the blue of satin bow and the blue suede. On the pair I received, the bow needed to be steamed, as it wasn't nearly as flat / pretty as the one in the photo.

Cute but unwearable
While they're cute enough, they rank high on the most-uncomfortable-shoes-I-have-ever-tried-on list...which is saying a lot. The shoe itself is a little wide, but the toe box narrows *drastically,* in a way where my third (but not my first or second!) toe was crunched. As a point of reference, I wear a standard size 8.

ok, but not stunning
These are a very pretty color and shape; unfortunately, the patent leather makes them look *a lot* cheaper than their price tag. They also arrived w/ a portion of the sole peeled back and a small stain (some adhesive, I think) on the vamp.

not so flattering
This dress was a bit of a disappointment for me. I'm 5'6 124, 32D. I ordered a size 2, which turned out to be baggy in the middle but snug in the hips. Also, the lace was far more stiff than I expected. That said, I bet it would look great on someone less hippy than I am! The lace on the bottom is super cute. Finally, this model is quite tall (shocker). The dress hit me about two inches above the knee.
