Some days here on Broke-Ass Bride, a #GownHunter becomes a Shoe Hunter…and lemme tell ya, it’s a blast! Reader Rachel is on the lookout for a pair of couture-inspired bow flats that aren’t available in her size. Here’s her request: 

Hi! I was hoping you could help me track down a pair of shoes similar to these: They are bow flats by Aminah Abdul Jillil. Price is actually not the issue here. I will pay up to $200 for the right shoe (but the cheaper the better, of course!). Unfortunately, the pink pair is not available in my size, and she neverrrrr restocks them. I have been checking for months to no avail. I’d like to find some other options just in case. I’d prefer pink, but I would also go with an aqua/turquoise color as well. I am looking for flats or wedges, since it’s an outdoor wedding and I will be walking in grass pretty much all day/night. I would really appreciate your help, and I thank you in advance.
