MN Style Army - WE NEED YOU! Help me and best mate find Wedding Shoe that looks like this, pleeeeease!

Evening Ladies,

Please help. My dearest best friend is getting married in October.

She has set her heart on a shoe that looks very much like here. Except she's tried these and although they don't look too high, apparently they really are. They are also quite stiff and too tricky to walk in.

So, we are going for our big wedding frippery shopping day tomorrow. We have at our disposal all of London's finest stores and can also take in Westfield if needs be.

We need your help MN. She must catch the 4pm train home and the dress fitting that requires shoes is in 2 weeks!!! <omg, giggly girl mission - hurrah!>

Have you seen anything along this lines? It's a courtesan style shoe. Her dress is ivory, but she'd be up for something like this in either ivory, a kind of fairytale/Snow White-esque corn flower blue in satin (does that make sense?) or alternative this style but completely jewel/sequin encrusted.

Please put your best googling fingers forward. We will be eternally grateful. smile grin [over excited emoticon]

PS. We also need a good latte.

PPS. Also possible large chocolately muffins.

Stoptalking - we very much like those ones. Thank you. <BF says I have to say thank you A LOT to you grin>

Mrs Badger, we are down Sarf so not sure about logistics of your lovely June Graham but will investigate smile

Any other ideas?

Oh bugger. They are only avail in size 3 Stoptalking, and now she really, REALLY wants them. In size 39. Arrggh.

Don't panic! Just because they are out of stock online it doesn't mean you can't get them in store. Just call round the stores in the morning, alternatively call customer services as they may be able to tell you which stores still have stock. Will keep fingers crossed for you, have a lovely day of girly shopping and congrats to your friend smile

i tried on these shoes last week in store. IMHO they are not dressy enough for the bride

i am getting the grey/purple ones to wear to [whispers] work

KristinaM Mon 17-Aug-09 23:09:57

like these, but they are outrageously expensive

i really liked the Irregular Choice ones, what a shame they were not comfortable

i think you might be struggling to find silver/cream shoes in store at this time of year

Mn rocks. Friend really likes both those suggestions. Korma - there are two stockists of rachael simpson off oxford street and Ophelia style is perfect for her, but she wants to check out what the lace bit looks like in the flesh.

She love those Hassall ones too Kristina - so we have two great options if the office ones aren't avail or are too plain for her.
