It continues… I received my third purchase yesterday.
So, here is #3…the Dessy Satin Peep-toe Flats in Ivory, size 11.
The soles have a really soft gray suede lining and a little extra cushion in the heel.
Front top view…these things look huge.
Back view…weird wrinkles, but maybe that’s the “style”.
I guess if you like bows, these are for you. They have a more casual feel with these bows, which I’m definitely removing and replacing with something dressier.
And….without further adieu, here they are, on.
Excuse the veiny feet and sock impressions around the ankles…I got home late last night to find the package and was so excited to try them on!
So, um, they’re HUGE. Not only do I have a ton of room to spare in the top, they flopped off of my as I walked.
These run insanely big. I am a true size 11 but these felt like 12’s or 13’s. The material feels like it has some give, so I KIND of have a feeling I could get away with 9’s.
Conclusion: I do think these are my wedding shoes. They’d be comfortable and I could most definitely style these up…and I’m pretty sure they’re a dead match for the ivory of my dress…as much as I hate to wear ivory shoes after swearing I’d wear blue.
Dessy does not have an exchange policy, as noted here. So, I had to place another order for 2 more pairs – sizes 9 AND 10, just to be on the safe side…and return these 11’s. For a site like Dessy that is so widely advertised and talked about, I would like to think they have their acts together. But now I have to absorb all these shipping charges so this pair of flats will likely end up costing $50 bucks before embellishing. Oy.
Shoe update to follow when I receive the new shipment!
