Fun stuff!

I'm going to be in a wedding in March and the bride is being so nice - she's letting the three of us (meaning her attendants) choose whatever we want to wear, as long as it's black. She really wants us to get something we'll actually wear again. Here's what I found:

The dress arrived today and it fits perfectly and is just absolutely gorgeous and comfortable and perfect in every way. On the model (above), it looks like it hits just above the knee, but I'm short and it's quite a bit longer on me. Also, the picture above isn't really true to life as far as how the top of the dress fits. It's a lot more flowy and feminine, like this:

I'm going to dress it up with some fabulous jewelry (of course!) and some sexy shoes. Maybe even some fun stockings, we'll see...

So does anyone have shoe suggestions? I did a quick browse of a few of the top vegan shoe sites and didn't really see anything that grabbed me. I don't walk well on a tall, skinny heel, but I still want them to have some va-voom. Help me, fellow vegan shoppers!

The heel is cute, and not too tall. I don't know how you feel about open toes in March, though. :)
