The trouble with tiny feet

Lately I've been busy planning my outfit for my brother's wedding coming up in july. I've been looking for shoes and found the perfect ones at Halens.fi ;

Pure perfection, platforms, chunky heel and slingback to help them stay on my tiny feet. Perfection, until I decided to buy them and found they only had big sizes left. After hours and hours of looking for something similar on websites I gave up and thought I'll have to give the shoe shops in town a try or use what I've got. Strangely, even with over 50 pairs, you never seem have any suitable pair for the occasion...

So today, after saying "nope, too big" to myself many, many times I found these pretties in one of the local shops, but I'm feeling a bit unsure. The size is ok, and I was able to walk in them, but the bigger dilemma is really will they go with the fifties style dress I've been busy designing and planning to make out of a shimmering dark blue fabric? Are they festive enough? Do I wanna pay 45 € for "maybe"? And I kinda wanted the shoes to be satin (goes better with the dress). But chances of me finding another small enough sized pair of perfect satin heels seems pretty small right now...

honestly? don't do it. they are - in my opinion - too far away from what you want to have, and i also am not convinced that you should pay that much money for a pair of maybe-but not quite-shoes. i'd say keep on looking, i guess you'll find something nicer.

Jag tycker skorna ser riktigt snygga ut, men om du är osäker tycker jag att du ska fortsätta söka. Det kan mycket väl vara så att de där är lite "modernare" stil än klänningen. Synd att de du ville ha inte fanns.

Just keep on looking. Ebay has lots of really fantastic 50's looking satin shoes. I'm sure you will find just the perfect pair for yourself.

I'd say no to those... They are cute, but with 50's style dress maybe a bit too modern. I'm sure that your perfect pair is still waiting for you to find it. :) Out of curiosity, what size are you? I'm mostly 35, so it's trés difficile to find shoes that fit and don't fall off every time I take a step... Still I have over 200 pairs. How that's possible, I don't know. ;)

I am select your site how one of my favorites sites. Your model is good and single.

Jag tycker nej...

De passar inte riktigt och är alldeles för dyra för att vara en inte så bra fit.

Har du kollat spanska onlinebutiker? Spanien och frankrike har mycket mindre sko storlekar annars kan man alltid kolla engelska barnkollektioner, de är ganska "vuxna" dock saknar de ergonomisk uppbyggning vilket medför att du inte bör köpa lågskor och gå långt i men högklackade kan ju funka.

Lycka till

lägre än de du ville ha men liknande, fast kanske lite dyra

They look a bit like nurse-shoes or promenade shoes.
I'm sorry but I honestly don´t think they would feel "dressy" enough on a wedding for me(that depends on the wedding of course...)
The Halens shoes looked lovely... and I totally understand the need of a satin pump!

Fröken Lila; Too late! But I only paid 31,50 for them, figured I can use them for other events if I am lucky enough to find better ones before the wedding.

Annie; Det blev köp, men jag söker ändå vidare, dock är förhoppningarna ganska låga.

Mrs Munster; Thanks, but I just don't have the energy to get involved with ebay :/

Una; I'm not too bothered about mixing old and new, so I did buy them just in case I don't find anything better. I am also mostly 35! Nice to know there are more of us :)

Radu...; Eh, what!?

Cathla; Det blev köp ändå, ifall jag inte hittar nåt bättre. Köper bara från Finland via nätet, men tack för länken och förslagen ändå!

Lillgull; They doo look a bit like nurse shoes! But I like 'em and they are now mine...in case I don't find anything better for the wedding.

Glamour; I thought so too ;)

Jag tyckte att skorna du köpte var helt ok, även om de på första bilden var helt ljuvliga... Så irriterande när saker inte finns i ens storlek!

Hur pass små fötter har du? Kasta ut en fråga i bloggosfären! Det finns så många som har saker liggande i garderoben och inte tänker på att de kan glädja andra! Jag vet att du bara handlar från Finland via internet, men frakt från Sverige till Finland är inte mycket dyrare än inrikes och det är tullfritt (EU...).

Annars så tycker jag som sagt att de du köpte borde fungera bara fint!
Ha det bra!

Kitten sa...

Erika; Kul att nån gillade dem :) Jag har storlek 35, ibland en liten 36:a...Tänkte du att jag borde söka på svenska halens? Undrar om de skickar till finland...Kanske värt en titt!? :)
