- Wedding: September 2012
I am a shoe-aholic. I have always been super infatuated with shoes… I am so cheap when it comes to most other things, but I will drop a lot of cash on shoes. It is my guilty pleasure! So I had a feeling that I’d be a bride with a ton of shoe regret… that could only be cured with the purchase of another pair of shoes… and another… and another.
The only real requirement was that I could wear them again after the wedding.
And so… here goes!
I actually bought these a year or two before the engagement. I loved them and I’d always imagined that I’d wear Valentino’s on my wedding day, but in the end, it was too bright of a colour.
Sorry for the sideways photo! Anyway. Bought these CL’s in France with the Fiance. Love them – they are the perfect colour (nude). Only problem is that they are closed toe (they are the nude Simple 100’s) so I felt they were not “dressy” enough.
Gold metallic Ferragamo’s up next. Loved the ankle strap…. but something about the colour (and perhaps the fit, too) just wasn’t doing it for me. I think I really had my heart set on a nude coloured shoe (I own a million nude coloured shoes and it is just so elegant to me).
And now, the WINNER (for real this time!!! they are perfect)
Photos do not do them justice. The trim is a glitter gold and they are WAY more comfortable than the Ferragamo’s. They are LOVE… perfect colour, perfect height, perfect fit, and so very re-wearable. And the best part? THEY WERE ON SALE! More than 60% off!!!! So amazeballs!!!!!
This has been a super expensive shoe journey, but I plan on wearing all of these shoes again (probably to the dozens of future weddings that I have to attend).
Did you all have a shoe journey? POST YOURS!!
(Please tell me I’m not the only crazy one!!!)
