Dipped Glitter Heels
Narrow but Correct Size Fits Perfectly!
These shoes are beautifully made.
The details are just prefect. BHLDN does a great job photographing them.
-I wear a seven in just about every shoe and despite BHLDN recommendation, I ordered a 7 and length wise, the shoe is a prefect fit.
-My ankle measures in at eight and a half inches. The given holes on the ankle strap make an extremely tight fit. Another hole can very easily be made however it will not be on the double fabric on the strap (zoom in on the photo to see).
-The shoe sole measurement of where your foot's arch sits; is an inch and three fourths. It's very narrow but it doesn't feel like you're falling out of it. If you zoom in on photo "4", what you see is how it fits.
Despite the above facts, I'm pretty sure I will not be exchanging this shoe. I'll of course ask my sister what she thinks before I make up my mind ;)
Hope this helped! Good Luck!

Sizing suggestion off
The shoes are beautiful, but for me, the sizing suggestion was off. I'm a size 6 in just about every shoe out there, but I ordered a 5 1/2, as recommended. However, when the shoes arrived, they were about a half size too small! My toes were right at the front edge of the shoe. I had to send them back, and I'm now awaiting my exchange. I'm hoping to not have to pay shipping charges for the exchange, since I only ordered the smaller size as a result of the recommendation.
One thing that I felt doesn't quite come through the pictures is that the shoes are really quite glittery and are more eye catching than I expected. I'll be wearing them for my wedding, so I'm pleased with the level of glitz, but it's just something to be aware of. I had been thinking that after the wedding I could wear these as summer sandals, but I think they would only work with fairly formal dress.

Beautiful but flawed
They are spot on with the sizing suggestion. I typically wear an 8 1/2 and the 8 fit perfectly. The color of the satin is just beautiful, just as pictured. The gold strap however is where I have issues. The pair I received, the glitter on the strap is more blush. I was also expecting the glittered part to be of more quality. It feels thin and the glitter was slightly rubbed off in some areas. My pair arrived with a small brown stain on the heel. I have other shoes by Schutz, so I expected better quality. I'm on the fence if they will be my wedding shoes, but they are lovely nonetheless. they are great if you are looking for understated elegance.
