I love what I found, but by the end I felt like I knew every shoe that existed!

Have you tried designing your own Ninas?

Hah, I already know it’s going to be an issue because I hate shoe shopping- not because I dislike shoes (quite the opposite, LOVE shoes) but because I get tired of people telling me they don’t carry/make my size.  I’ve been told to go to the children’s section before- I cried.  I’ve also had the problem of people not believing me when I say my size (they aren’t that small- I don’t understand why they don’t believe me!) and are astonished when they realize that I’m telling the truth.  My mom says I should just buy a pair when I find them but I have to remind her that I’m going to change my mind about things probably in the next threeish years.

@sarahsd: I totally know what you mean about feeling like you know about every shoe that exists!

My wedding isn’t until next April, and I have kind of a specific look in my mind and nothing that exists right now fits it PERFECTLY. I stalk nordstrom / zappos / barneys / neimans / etc. weekly looking for new shoes I haven’t seen before! Its only July and I’m ready for all the fall / winter collections to go away and give way to pretty SPRING heels!

If nothing else comes along, I will probably also go with design your own ninas. I love all the options!

I’m also finding it quite difficult.  I want wedges (for stability!) and I need 2″ heels, so that I won’t have to get my dress hemmed.  Plus I want sandals and ivory or silver.  This combination is suprisingly rare.  But oh well!  An exuse to shoe shop!

I actually had my shoes before I had me dress!  Of course I bought them a long time ago and I get shoe envy every now and then.

I usually have such an easy time buying shoes, but this is driving me crazy for the wedding!  I want blue shoes, but not navy or aqua (something in between), which I just am not finding.  They need to be between 3-3/4″ and 4-1/4″ (otherwise I have to get my dress altered).  But the hardest part has been figuring out what type of shoe looks good with a lace dress.  I have bought and returned a few pairs already that just didn’t look right!

Yep. I want nude, 1 1/2″ peep toes.. haha, good luck right. I never see nude shoes. Well.. to be fair, I am in the Middle East and the fashion here seems to be over the top, 4-5″ black/shimmery stillettos!! Yeah, I pretty much just gave up my Nude shoe search while typing that! Ha.
