I’m in a shoe slump. What to do about these shoes?
I bought these Ann Taylor Gelsi flats several months ago for about $40, but I’ve been uncertain about them ever since they arrived. There’s just something not quite right about them.
They’re not the right shade of blue, and the heel pinches me just a tad.
Being so fussy about a pair of shoes is making me feel like a bridezilla, frankly, and I don’t like it. I shouldn’t care this much about something I’ll probably only wear for a few hours before kicking them off and going barefoot. There’s just something that feels so wildly beautiful about wearing fancy dresses barefoot, don’t you think?
Still, why should I keep them if I don’t like them? I WOULD be this picky about a regular pair of shoes — especially a pair that I paid $40 for!
So, I’ve begun looking around online for an alternative — either blue or pink flats, ideally. Our ceremony is outside and I’d rather not sink into the grass, thankyouverymuch.
Unfortunately, I found these.
J. Crew Augustas for $160. Staggeringly out of my price range. Vintage romance all over. *sigh*
Slightly more affordable, but still out of reach, are these.
Also J.Crew, Samantha metallic flats for $69.99. These might be excusable if I can sell the Ann Taylor flats.
I found a couple more affordable options, courtesy of Payless.com.
They’re not pink or blue, but they are only $22.99.
These look black and white to me, but the description says they’re navy and pink. I like them, but I’m afraid the heel is much too high. $29.99 at Payless.com.
Writing this post has me more convinced than ever that the Ann Taylor flats have to go. The right shoes are out there, I know it! And I don’t think it makes me a bridezilla to try to find them.
Are you considering flats for your bridal shoes? Are you finding it hard to find ones fancy enough? Where have you found your favorite fancy flats?
