Blah

I'm having a tough time finding the right shoes for my new dress. I want to wear stockings (it seems too casual for a wedding to go bare legged), which means I would prefer closed-toe shoes because I really don't care for the look of stockings with open-toed shoes... but I still want them to be cute and sexy. I don't see anything I like on any of my usual vegetarian shoe websites.

I found several pairs I liked on shoes.com, but they all have open toes. As far as I can tell, none of these three contain leather.


(Matt's favorite)


Ideally, I'd love to find something like these. Unfortunately, this particular pair is made from cow skin. Blech.


Of course, in the course of looking for wedding shoes, I found a pair of boots I absolutely love. Must resist...

That third pair is awesome! You could rock those with some toe-less stockings...

The boots are absolutely gorgeous:)

I have to agree with Matt, I really like the shoes he picked out. They are sexy and would look good with your dress. Just put on some vegan tanner on your legs and you won't need stockings. Unless you're worried about being cold. I'll see if I can come up with any close toed shoes.

Yeah, the third pair is my current favorite. The toe opening is small, at least.

I am such a non-girly-girl - what do you mean by toe-less stockings? Just the kind that don't have the funky reinforced looking toe? Do they make them without the seam across the toes?

vegan girl, I agree they are totally hot, but besides the stocking issue, I'm also worried about the heel. I am totally graceless and suck on high heels and am worried that they are too tall and skinny. I know, I suck at being female.

They're stockings without toes! Here's an example:)
Look Ma! No toes!

Wow! Who knew they had such a thing?!? I was thinking of wearing black stockings but I might reconsider now that I see these!!! Thanks for the info Robin Marie. :-)

The boots are soooo cute. I might need a pair.

Tamara, didn't your mother teach you about toe-less stockings? No??

I didn't know about them either. I can make good use of these stockings. Thanks Robin Marie!

Is it too late to vote? I too like the leather ones the most, but for 2nd place, I like the platforms....Matt's choice.

More importantly, what jewelry are you going to wear?
