Oyster Bed d'Orsays
Good option for a lower heeled pump
I ordered these shoes in an 8 (size I always wear) after searching for a heel less than 3 in heel for months with much difficultly. My experience with the sizing was that they were the right fit lengthwise - but way too wide - so much that they would fall off if I walked in them. I do have narrow feet and solved this problem by buying a sticky insert that I applied base of the shoe. They do offer limited support as you can tell, but I figure it's worth it for the classy look! My only complaint is that I live near a BHLDN store and had to order online (hence wait the 10 business days# because they don't carry these shoes and many others in the store. The reasoning I was given is that brides-to-be don't want to buy shoes that have been tried on!? I thought that was pretty ridculous #who are these brides?? and what does BHLDN do with returned shoes??) but it only took an extra 10 days...just something to keep in mind if you are in a rush.

Beautiful but POOR quality for $
I ordered this shoe in 2 sizes based on the other reviews. The shoe does run slightly on the large side. Please keep in mind there is no support in this shoe. It is like walking on the ground. I was extremely disappointed as the first pair I received looked like someone wore them before me. Scuffed, chipped pearls, dirt marks on the heel. Not what I expected for this $$$$ amount especially. I called customer service, they sent an additional pair, however, the pearls were chipped on these as well. I did expect a little more customer service with my purchase. BHLDN CSR was somewhat rude to me....have to see if I will be a customer in the future. I need to be won over to come back.

Beautiful shoes for wedding
These shoes are beautiful! I love the pearl detail, and the lower heel height makes them very easy to walk in. They do run BIG. I ALWAYS wear an 8 1/2, but the size 8 1/2 were way too big. I could tell as soon as I pulled them out of the box. I immediately ordered the size 8, and they fit perfectly. When looking at other Something Blue reviews, the trend seems to be they run big. Other than that, they are wonderful!

Perfect Bridal Shoe!!!
The shoe fits true to size. I almost always wear an 8.5, and I ordered an 8.5 and the shoes fit great. I ordered these for my wedding. Once getting them home, I realized they would also look great with skinny jeans - overall a versatile shoe.
Only negative - they are a little hard to walk in. I will admit I will need a little practice, the hill is skinny.
