Oh my gosh, I am beyond excited for my shoes. Is this what it will be like waiting for my dress to arrive? YAY!
I found someone on Reddit who made these incredible custom shoes with color strips from Calvin and Hobbes. I’ll be happy to share the post if anyone is interested.
Anyway, I asked and she offered to make me a pair! YAY! I am so excited! I love C&H. I have wanted my second tattoo to be of them for at least 5 years now. Our wedding is going to be elegant and romantic, two things that are very much NOT us (we’re more the jeans and t-shirt and video games type), so having this small piece of personalization is really important just to make the day feel like it belongs to me. For my fiancé, I’m going to make him some cufflinks that do the same thing these shoes will for me.

I just wanted to share my excitement with the boards. If I am this excited for a pair of shoes, I can’t imagine the anticipation of the dress!

@happyface: In a heartbeat. These are the kind of shoes that go with NOTHING so they kind of go with everything. In a way I haven’t quite figured out yet.
My fiance is 6’4, I’m 5’1. I don’t wear heels often but I really ought to wear them more often simply because I like when we don’t look ridiculous. 🙂
