So, I found my shoes today… at Dillards of all places! We’re doing a casual nautical theme, since our ceremony and reception will be at a yacht club. My initial idea for shoes were the Manolo Blahniks that Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) wore in the Sex and the City movie… I looove Sex and the City :-). Well obviously the Manolos are waaay out of budget, so I initially bought a cheap pair of navy blue shoes… Bad idea. They’re super cute, but just not quite right for my dress. (I will definitely be wearing them with jeans!) So in my time of need, I turned to Google, as always. I saw tons of shoes, most of them discontinued, and then I found these:
Yes, that is a knot on the toe!!! Perfect for our “tying the knot” idea! Not to mention, that’s what it says on our save-the-dates, and they even have a picture of the same type of knot!!! I wasn’t quite sure if they would fit with my dress though :-/
This is my dress (from the worst dress store ever… DB):
(I stole these from the reviews of the dress on their website because the stock photo is terrible)
Well, I got home and immediately tried on the shoes with the dress to see what I had, aaannnddd… It was a perfect fit! Absolutely perfect for what we’re doing. I looove them!
