SS13 Bridal Shoes & Wedding Gowns - GIANVITO ROSSI Transparent Peeptoe Slingback Pumps in White Trim

Yes these are the same sandals featured earlier in the week but in a different finish. Normally I'd amalgamate them into a single post when there are different colours or finishes that I'd like to show the Shoeniverse audience, but I actually believe that these are different enough to warrant separate posts. These are much more daytime appropriate, but I think would make an exceptional bridal shoe.

They are striking in their simplicity.

Here are my pick of the four best bridal gowns for SS13.

Any of these gowns would make beautiful bridal gowns. Which one is your favourite? If you are getting married this year I'd love to see what you are wearing and which shoes you've chosen!

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN Pink Punk Skull Embellished Sandal

I am just going to go right ahead and say it then. Best flip-flops EVER!

If you are lucky enough to be able to spend £500 on a pair of summer sandals then I'd suggest picking them up, And if you do know that there is a little shoe blogger here who is very very envious of you when you do!

VALENTINO Naked Rockstud Leather Pumps with Transparent Trim

Yes, transparent is everywhere at the moment, but if you are nervous of the trend, then Valentino has probably come up with more ways than any other fashion house to suit just about everyone. These pumps feature the naked rockstud heel and a transparent trim, but are also a full leather pump, meaning you don't have the have your toes on show. If you love the look but want to be a little more daring then take a look at one of the earlier Shoeniverse posts for more naked rockstud styles and much more transparency!

I love the heels on these. They are amazing, and while these are not the sort of shoe I would normally go for, they really do appeal - I can't stop looking at them! The heels are so very pretty...

Wear them with simply separates for maximum impact.

If you would like to make them yours then click through to buy. These are my favourite of the Valentino naked rockstud styles to date. Which ones are your favourite style?

These gorgeous denim wedges from Sergio Rossi are my dream holiday shoes. I love wedges as has been well documented many many times since the very inception of Shoeniverse, but fuse a wedge with deep dark indigo denim and sassy black leather trim ties, and you know that I'm falling in love. Best of all, these cute skyscraper wedges are available at The Outnet, so they will no longer cost you £350 - they are down to a perfect half price of £175.

They are just amazing.

Such a fun relaxed outfit but still notching up serious style points. The sunglasses are at the Outnet too - bargain!

Perfect Holiday Sandals - DV BY DOLCE VITA Green Ayden Sandal (on sale)

These pretty jade green flat sandals are currently on sale and can be yours for a very reasonable £31. Really, the beautiful jade green / turquoise colour is the thing that sells me these sandals even at their original price. They would be perfect for going from pool to hotel room, for lazy lunches and dinners, and would work with everything from white shorts to maxi dresses. Surely something of a true holiday staple.

The tiny hint of wedge is also a true comfort saver for those of us who spend much of our lives in heels and need a little gentle adjustment to wearing flats!

I also really love the little metallic ridge to the toe to stop them getting scuffed. A designer looking sandal at a high street price. How could you not love that?

ZARA Pink Leather Minimalist Strappy Sandal

I will stop posting pink shoes in a minute, I promise! But before I do, you might want to take a look at these bargain Zara sandals which can be yours for just £39. They're real leather too.

Simple and understated, they are reminiscent of the current Givenchy (and other designer) styles with a love of really minimalist designs. There is a Steve Madden style that's very similar too. But at £39 for a real leather version in such a wearable and versatile shade, the Zara version is hard to beat!

If you like them, get them while they are there or forever regret it when you have to start trying to find them later on Ebay!

BRIAN ATWOOD Pink Nico Pointed Pump

Well, I simply had to show you these PPP's, if only because they are just about the freshest pink colour that I've seen for a while. If you want a pair of statement pink pumps but are a little nervous of going all the way up the spectrum to neon shades, these pointy pumps might be just the ticket.

Let's take a closer look at their pointed pink perfection!

So cute right? This is how I would style these for daytime, just picking out a hint of pink in the top and keeping everything else super pretty but neutral. Plus I am totally in love with the Topshop Daisy necklace!
