VANELi 'Marieta' Sandal
I bought these shoes for my stepdaughter to wear with a charcoal gown for a formal. I thought that they were darker (like pewter) but they are still nice. She thinks that they are comfortable and the rhinestone bands are lovely. The only thing is that her foot does not go all the way to the front, but they still look nice. The low heel allows for wearability for a long evening.
The style looks nice but it was a little narrow at the strap and the sole was slippery.
Other reviews stated this shoe is comfortable; however, from the second I put it on it was apparent the quality was poor and the fit was wretched. The shoe is bulky and stiff. The materials look cheap and tacky. I returned them immediately and exchanged them for a prettier, sleeker, comfortable and less expensive pair of shoes for my special occasion. True to form, Nordstrom has exemplary customer service and makes returns and exchanges very easy.
Perfect Wedding Shoe
Bought these shoes for my daughter's wedding in November. Looking for something that was comfortable and yet stylish. The heel is a nice height for all day and dancing into the night. Seem to fit the ticket for me. I also like that I can wear them after the wedding with dresses or going out for the evening. They really sparkle and look nice on my foot.
