Wedding Wednesday: Starla Sandals

Happy Tuesday!

Okay, I know it's still Tuesday, but I am really excited to share Starla Sandals with you guys. And it's under Wedding Wednesday because they have a fantastic bridal collection! :)

A passion for jewelry, shoes, and the tropical lifestyle of South Florida led to Starla, a brand of luxury sandals. Often embellished with Swarovski crystals, the sandals have a signature sparkle that lends a casual elegance to any outfit.

Starla Sandals are inspired by fashionable women who desire style and comfort, no matter where they are or what they are doing. The core collection of embellished flats was designed to take women to all their destinations in style.

Starla Sandals are made with the finest leathers, stones, crystals and jewels from around the world. New designs are created seasonally.

Starla Sandals... The World's Most Luxurious Sandals

Stephanie from Starla Sandals sent me a pair of sandals from their Bridal Collection:

Shipping in the United States is free. And they usually ship within 1 to 2 business days.
Their shipping is incredibly fast -- my sandals arrived a day early. :)

They were wrapped in pink tissue paper.

They come with a note that says:

Starla Sandals are hand crafted with love by skilled artisans. Slight imperfections are part of the unique characteristics of a handmade product.

I can honestly say that I didn't see any imperfections. I can tell that the sandals are very carefully made.

They also come with foam to keep them from being deformed.

The material is very sturdy, so I think it's pretty much difficult to flatten the sandals -- but it's always better to be safe than sorry, right? ;)

The sandals I picked from their Bridal Collection is the Gold Opulence Sandals:

The Gold Opulence Sandal features metallic gold leather straps adorned with Austrian crystals and jewels in a circular pattern. A truly exquisite sandal and Starla best seller. Leather sole. Suede lining inside straps. Designer handmade Starla Sandals. Hand made in Bali, Indonesia.

Aren't they beautiful?!

The sandals are not lightweight, so you know that they are definitely not like normal flip flops or sandals.

I am normally a size 6, but their sizes go by halves so I got a size 6.5.
It's a bit of a tight fit at first, but it's just right -- not too big, not too small.
They also have a size guide on their website to help you determine which size is best for you.

As with most shoes, you have to break them in before you can say that they're totally comfortable.

When I got my sandals, I wore them for about 30 minutes to an hour in order to get them to mold into my feet, and also so I can get used to them. They get more and more comfortable each time I wear them.

A closer look:

You can see the excellent craftsmanship put into these sandals!
The Austrian crystals and jewels are arranged perfectly. The stitching is flawless. The suede lining makes it comfortable -- none of those plastic linings that stick to your feet. ;)

The Gold Opulence Sandals are originally sold for $120, but right now, you can get them for $79.
How amazing is that?!


These are perfect for your wedding reception -- you're tired and your feet hurt from wearing high heels, but you still want to dance = change into these beautiful sandals. :)

Another good thing about these sandals is you can definitely use them anytime -- your wedding reception, a friend's casual wedding, a day of running errands, going out with friends... really, for anything!

The quality is excellent, so I just know that I will be using my Gold Opulence Sandals for a long time.

Here are other sandals from their Bridal Collection:

Platinum Opulence Sandal ($120, on sale for $79)


Gold Brilliance ($89, on sale for $49.99)
