Samantha got these sexy Valentino slingbacks for a steal on RecycledBride.com
There’s nothing that warms my heart more than a bride getting a great deal on Recycled Bride. So when Samantha e-mailed to tell me how she got these gorgeous $575 fuschia Valentino slingbacks for just $129, I just had to share her story. <!–more–>
Here’s what Samantha had to say about buying her shoes on RecycledBride.com:
“I don’t know how many countless hours I spent searching for the right shoe and either finding something that was just okay or something WAY out of my price range. I had my photographer, family and friends sending and voting on shoes but nothing seemed like the one I wanted to wear for my wedding.
“I don’t remember how exactly I came across Recycled Bride, maybe an Internet search or mentioned on WBC or The Knot, but once I was there I started browsing around just for fun and saw the pink Valentino slingbacks. The seller had purchased them at a discount but decided to go with another shoe, so she was selling brand new Valentino shoes, originally $575, for $129. Turns out she also lived locally and was willing to meet local brides so they could try them on. We met a few days later, I tried them on, fell in love and purchased them on the spot.
“I have shown a few people and posted them on the wedding sites I belong to and have had great responses and nobody can believe the great deal I got on authentic designer shoes.
“My wedding isn’t until May 22nd, so I don’t have a professional picture in them or many pictures at all of me wearing them, but here they are in a few pictures of me trying on my dress after it arrived. They are not the best pictures the solos were taken with my phone and the ones in the dress, I was just seeing how they looked together, but they at least show the shoe. I can take and send more when I go to my first dress fitting for alterations in a week or two.
“I am CERTAIN that I would still be searching for the perfect pair of shoes, and pulling my hair out about now, if it wasn’t for this posting on Recycled Bride and I definitely wouldn’t have been able to wear such a fabulous designer either.”
Thanks so much for sharing, Samantha! It was fun to feature this on the blog, and we’ll be posting a lot more Recycled Bride Success Stories in the coming weeks.
