Although I was never a little girl who dreamed about weddings, I can totally appreciate a really great wedding shoe. Not only is designing white footwear incredibly difficult, but shoes are increasingly a popular subject of wedding photography, so choosing a pair that suits your personal style and really stands out is a great way to to add an extra note of personality that you’ll be able to enjoy in photos for the rest of your life.
That’s where the Tabitha Simmons Chandelier Crystal Sandals come in. They’re just the right combination of tradition and fashion, out-and-out glamour and European chicness. You may even want to buy a tea-length wedding dress to show them off; that’s how pretty they are.
It’s not the crystal foot jewelry that makes this design work for me. Rather, it’s the grosgrain trim at the top. It’s a neo-Lanvin touch that tempers the bling on the front of the shoe, and it’s a thousand times more elegant and interesting than using a traditional strap with a buckle closure. Not only that, but the grosgrain and crystal mirror the details that go into a wedding dress, which make this shoe particularly apropos. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $2195.
