I tried on the JC Beck in champagne and absolutely fell in love. I haven't stopped thinking about these shoes since I tried them on three weeks ago! Images here: http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/jimmy-ch...esultback=1784

Wedge version (called "Bergen"):

The style is very casual but the glittery fabric seems a bit dressy. Does anyone use this as a casual, everyday sort of flat? Or is it really just a "special occasion" type thing? Most people say my style is "dressy" anyways but I don't know...Maybe the "Bergen" looks a bit more "casual" than Beck because it has the wedge? Thoughts? Mod pics appreciated if you have these!

To me the Beck looks more casual because it doesn't have the wedge. But I think it is all about the color. I have a glitter flat coming in that is bronze, that I intend to wear in casual/dressy occasions. The darker color just seems less dressy to me than gold or silver.

Just MHO, other people may see things differently.

I don't have these but I do have a glitter toe Choo flat that I wear with jeans and love them. I would definately wear both of these with casual pants...even shorts. I love to combine casual clothes with glittery shoes/bags.

I would wear them with casual wear -they're a lot like my (beloved) Findlays, which I wear with nearly everything - shorts to jeans to skirts.

Thanks! I was actually debating between the beck or the finlays. Do you actually have any (or know where I can find 'em on TPF) mod pics?? Would love to see!

There's a pic here: http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/jimmy-ch...097&origin=pla

If the link doesn't work, search Finlay at Nordstrom. I love mine but I'm a careless walker and they've scuffed a little at the toe. I took them back to JC and got a "yeah, they all scuff" response. The peep toe might help avoid my problem.

Thanks! I was actually asking for mod (modeling) pics, though
