Work has been kicking my butt lately! However, in the little down time I have had, I started looking into accessories for the big day. I have been going back and forth on some of the items, but I successfully ordered my hair piece and earrings from Etsy (big surprise, huh?) I won't show the hair piece, but I can't help but to share the earrings!
So, in my quest to find the ulitmate pair of shoes, I have hit a bit of a wall. Wedding shoes are expensive! I have known it to be true since I started the planning of our wedding that the wedding industry will gouge you for you last penny, all for the sake of that "perfect day." Ugh...lessons have already been learned that there is no such thing as perfect, and there is certainly nothing perfect about white shoes with a $200 price tag!
Now, I'm not saying I haven't had my temptations. One of my more high fashion bridesmaids pointed me to a website that sold Christian Loubitins for discounted prices.
I found a pair in a local store, which are actually on sale at Nordstroms right now:
I tried them on and they are as comfortable as a sling back 3inch hell can be, but I don't know...
Another route I was thinking of going was a shoe in a non-traditional color. I want to find a pair that I will wear again. Most "bridal" shoes are satin and too white to match normal day-to-day clothes. I spotted a few girls on a website that I frequent, Once Wed.
I had been thinking of flats, but due to the style of my dress, I'm not sure if they are very appropriate. I guess it is ultimately my decision, though. Even though they bear the name of that which shall not be named (Vera...), I am very intrigued by this shoe. Of course, it is over priced, but I would love to find one that is similar.
Well, gotta work on a Saturday. Boooo.
Love you all for reading!
