So my little tote search prompted a bit of an outcry from my friend
Angie. She is on her own shopping mission, for something far more
critical: wedding shoes. Angie knows what she want–white patent
peep-toe pumps in a moderate heel–but the perfect pair she found
(pictured) have an unsightly tendency to crack. I am going to assume
that this is Mr. Marc Jacobs’ single flaw.
I know every bride
dreams about her dress, but like any outfit, if the shoes don’t work
there’s really no point. So when Angie asked for help, I wracked by
brain and went a bit Google ga-ga. She’s already hit the biggies
(Macy’s, Nordstrom, etc.), so I suggested she try the following
Websites. When time matters, online shopping is a dream. Search engines
have improved significantly, shipping is often free, and returns are
slick. Plus, the web is a gateway to brands and inventory that may not
even be available locally.
My own quick search yielded these d’Orsay pumps. Not patent leather, and a higher heel, but equally as classic for her 1950s-style dress.
If you have any ideas for Angie, please speak up! This bride-to-be deserves the best.
