Finding Cheap Dress Shoes

My first and oldest nephew recently married in a lovely outdoor ceremony in North Carolina.  I got a nice fancy dress (original price, $108.00-purchased new at $17.88 clearance) new dress purse (naturally) but I had one big concern...

"What was I going to do about dress shoes?"  Being a school teacher and attending a very casual church, I didn't have appropriate dress shoes to even remotely blend with the dress.  Over and above the cost ($75.00 and up) I was worried about my thin shoe heels becoming mired on the beautiful resort's lawn  and becoming ruined in the first wearing.  So, what's a girl to do?

Enter my old stand by, thrift store shopping.  I found 2 absolutely "perfect"  pairs of dress shoes, one for the ceremony and one for the rehearsal dinner.  Price for each pair, $3.00 - I did spring for an additional $3.00 per pair for new heel taps (the little back part on the end of the heel) to spiff the shoes up a bit.  The shoes, just like the wedding, could not have been more perfect... 

Hope you like them, this works for me!
