Charmeuse Pleated Peep Toe with Ornament Style DIANA
Gorgeous but mildly painful
Bought these in Peacock, couldn't tell if they were green or blue but it's a pleasant shade of both.
Ordered them in a size 7 which is currently too small because I tend to get swollen feet so I ended up buying a 2nd pair.
Originally planned to try them on in Bluebird based on online availability but instead found an Apple pair.
My first impression was... WOW. But a great wow. And they were in 7.5 so even though both sizes are too tight in front but loose in the back I decided to get the Apple color to actually wear for my wedding.
(Also in store my other choices were Truffle, Lapis, Black, Ivory, & White (Too expensive for 1 pair imo).
As someone who hates red shoes, this says a lot about the shoes, which to me screams vintage, glamour, classic, and elegance.
The only negatives would be, they seem to run small, I had tried on a 7 originally and it fit great.
Not so much when new.
The bad, for me at least is that the shoes pinch and feel very tight around the front but my heels flop out in the back. The ladies at the store recommended I get heel liners and so far they work. For the most part. The best part is, I can wear these shoes more than once!

I've loved these shoes for so long but have already been married and couldn't spend the money on "just because shoes." When they went on sale, I bought the Regency because I loved the Royal Blue against the diamonds and have so much to match! However, when they arrived, the box said Regency but they were a Royal PURPLE. I looked online again and they look blue and everyone confirmed they look blue online so it's VERY misleading to know exactly what color you're going to get. They fit true to size and I'll be keeping them because you can't return them anyways and it was still a good price but I'm sad I didn't get the blue shoes I wanted!

Purchased these shoes a few weeks ago and have worn them on and off a couple times to break them in slowly. They're actually very comfortable. The heel height is perfect: the platform helps with stability, in my opinion.
I picked the color Bluebird to have a 'something blue' for my winter wedding, and because I thought the color would fit the winter theme... Depending on the light, these shoes are sometimes light blue, sometimes more lilac. However, I'm very happy!

Purchased these shoes for my wedding. They look stunning with my ball gown and time seems to be moving in slow motion, I can't wait.
