Bridal Shoes: Dolce & Gabbana satin bow pumps, $395
I always seem to label shoes like these “bridal shoes”. It’s not really fair of me. There’s no law, after all, which says pale satin shoes of a certain colour must only be worn by brides, and actually, more and more brides these days seem to be going for brightly coloured shoes which contrast with their dress, rather than one that matches it. I don’t blame them one little bit, either: if you’re wearing a long dress, chances are your shoes will only ever be seen by those who specifically ask to see them, and if you’re spending a lot of money on a pair of bridal shoes, well, they may as well be the kind of shoes you’ll at least be able to wear again. And again, and again, and again…
All of that said, these Dolce & Gabbana satin bow pumps would make beautiful bridal shoes, wouldn’t they? The colour, satin upper and bow all scream “bride”, and although they could just as easily be worn in circumstances which DON’T involve a trip down the aisle, they definitely look like they’re best suited to the fancier occasions in life. And can’t you just imagine that bow peeking out of the bottom of a long, ivory gown?
These have a 110mm stiletto heel, a pointed toe and, of course, that giant bow. They’re one of those very timeless styles that will never go out of fashion, so you don’t have to worry about looking back at your wedding photos one day and wondering what on earth you were thinking. At $395, they’re obviously not the most budget-friendly shoes out there, especially when you take the delicacy of the upper into account (You’ll probably want to steer clear of grass while you’re wearing these), but they ARE Dolce & Gabbana, so I guess that’s only to be expected. What do you think of them?
I actually “aaah”ed aloud when I scrolled down to these… Pretty much sums it up!
They are beautiful.
