Wow - that IS good shoe karma
The beaded pair are one of my favorites. I bit difficult to walk in, but sooooo beautiful. I also really love the floral pump. Those are a pair I wish I hadn't missed out on.....

I'm really loving this season of Dries. Have you tried any on?

Thanks lucky and Mona..I had all but given up hope on scoring the beaded pair when a display pair from a boutique popped up on Ebay. I was really lucky on that one.

I'm hoping to score something from this season too, but hopefully a necklace or bracelet.

Congrats, PrincessImp!

Just wanted to mention about the silver beaded shoes from a year ago ... as I recall at least two of us got them (and kept them). It's warm enough to wear them now, so I pulled them out, but they had really tarnished over the winter. It was kind of an antiquey, flea markety look ... I was considering going with it, but I missed the shine. I remembered I had a silver polishing cloth for jewelry, so pulled it out and it really did the trick!

ok...has anyone noticed the increasing scarcity of dries shoes? the same places still stock, but it seems like that stock is diminishing as each season passes, and this makes me very sad. dvn is one of the few shoe brands that i will empty out my bank account for, and i know my brands.

i wonder if it just has to do with cost...i can't imagine they make a whole lot of money in the end on creating such high-quality, long-lasting shoes that are beautifully unique but also quite particular (as in, not appealing to everyone).

the quality really is second to none. my oldest pair i've had for about four years now and even after wearing them non stop for two years they look practically brand new. and the design is so unique, so many small details that make a huge difference and really stand out without being flashy. there are always a few styles in every season that aren't my taste, but the craftsmanship can never be called into question!

agreed on what everyone says about sizing. i think it even varies style to style within a given season (probably only because of the differences between a boot or lace-up affair vs sandal, pump)...

i'm almost always a solid 35/5, in very rare instances a half size bigger will work.
anyhow i've got 2 pairs from the same s/s season, one 35 and one 35.5, and both fit perfectly. i have a pair of boots that are 36.5

the best thing to do is try on a bunch of different styles if you ever get the chance to, you will get a sense of how the fit is, i would say there's a tangible consistency to the feel and fit of dvn shoes...

cerfas - I haven't noticed Dries specifically being scarce, but I have noticed that stores are buying small quantities overall, which results in certain styles being quite scarce. In the past, more was available come sale time, but now, if you love a style, you almost have to buy it early.... otherwise you might miss out

mona, LOVE THOSE> especially like the zigzag in the band complimented by the darker colors on the strap. nothing to overtly bold about them which some were but instead you found the best mix of graphic and colors.

Neiman's has expanded their selection of Dries ... a few years ago they had one or two styles, and now they may have the best selection in town ... I bought my sandals there.

mona - that makes sense. i guess i just noticed one or two places that seemed to have way fewer styles than usual, but it could also just be what you said.

fashionista - thanks for the tip!
