headstartshoes
PS Oh! I was just looking back in the thread & I guess I got the exact same shoes that luckyme returned This is the lighter version that Barney's had (but not in my size) ... and btw, I am normally an 8 but was 8.5 in all Dries I tried on today. The other thing I meant to mention is that I tried to try on the ones with the metallic straps around the big toe, but I was like Cinderella's stepsister, the shoe wouldn't begin to go onto my foot So if you want that style, you better have some narrow feet and some skinny toesies ...

I ended up getting my shoes at Neimans, where they were marked up (needlessly, you could say ). But I did have a really nice SA, which was the most amazing thing

How does the sizing run for the DVN shoes this season?

^ It's as reported, about half a size small. I sized up half a size in everything ... except the Cinderella shoes :p

Congrats, fashionista-ta!

^ Let's see ... they had a pretty good selection, half a dozen or more I think? They had the tribal cuff, and the same shoe with the metallic straps at the toe as Barney's (the Cinderella shoe), and then of course the one I got. And after that I'm not sure ... they may have had the metallic pump. They don't have any Dries on their website, so can't check there ... I remembered seeing Dries there in the past ... it's been years since I've been in there I think. At that time it was more onesie, twosie, now they've got a little grouping.

They had quite a selection in general, they don't seem to have cut back their buy at all, but the place glittered. I thought it was very Moscow, but the people in Moscow would probably call it very Dallas

i saw the tribal cuff flat version at neiman's in sf, and i didn't realize how heavy the ankle beading is...it's still gorgeous though...

^ It has both--there are three rows of beads on the version I tried on The red beads are the middle row. The other rows are the brass (I guess) beads. As luckyme pointed out, there's a heeled version of the one-row-of-beading cuff (as seen on the flat), but it has the toe ring too. I think it's on one of the smaller store sites mentioned in this thread, I don't remember which atm (gimme??) ... at any rate I came across it somewhere in my meanderings that started with this thread.

The wide cuff looks & in fact is heavy--it causes the shoe to fall over on its own. But I didn't find it particularly heavy on. Perhaps the angle of the shoe was simply distracting me, but that's what attracted my attention while wearing them ... that part of the shoe is basically identical to the one I bought.

So here's the deal with pictures ... I don't have a digital camera, and while my phone does take pictures, my plan doesn't cover uploading them. And while I realize I could expand my phone plan so I could upload pictures to tFS, strange as this may sound, I have other priorities at the moment

Since it's cold & I wanted to wear my new shoes, I've been wearing them with black tights. It's a completely different look (since I am very pale) & really makes the beading pop ... and btw I wasn't sure how it would work, but I've been wearing them with full-length pants. I had them hemmed to work with heels, but a bit higher in the front, specifically to show off the detail of other shoes. Maybe 1/3 to 1/2 of the beading shows, but it's fine--just looks like a smaller shoe ornament. It all shows when I sit down & cross my legs ... and now I've told all I know

^ Thanks, leyla I agree, I think Dries really outdid himself this season. I looked thru the favorite shoes thread before I went shopping, and I thought his stood out as the best of the season.

I think you should get the white ones to kind of round things out
