Shoe Lust

I mean, have you ever? Through the course of looking for a pair of shoes to go with my wedding dress that don’t remind me of Easter shoes circa 1995 and that I will wear more than once, I stumbled across these two beauties. Cue ensuing shoe lust!

The kitten heels are so unique – I don’t think I’ve ever seen shoes quite like them! Leave it to BHLDN to stock something so romantic, pretty, and original. They’re not a perfect match for my dress (though I kind of want them just because they’re freaking adorable), so they’re a maybe for my bridesmaid! And the Manolo pumps…well. ¬†Mary Jane’s made from the darkest navy satin. Trimmed with grosgrain ribbon. If there’s an equation for the perfect shoe, that might just be it. Talk about a shoe that would never go out of style.

There needs to be a mega millions lottery drawing in which I am the winner. I guess that would mean I need to buy a ticket first. Details, I say.

    i had issues with finding shoes… same reasons as you – why buy something ugly just so that it’s ‘bridal’ vs what is affordable and practical. My husband is a bit short too, so I had in throw in ‘short heel’ to the qualifications!

    Make sure you always check online before buying in-store! My best friend got married last fall and was trying on bridal shoes and found a pair she loved, but they were over $500! She decided to go home and check out everything online, and ended up getting her dream shoes for more than 75% off… talk about SUUUUPER dreamy.

    Seriously, there is never an occasion that it’s not awesome to save a buck or two on… best of luck in the shoe hunt!

    My vote is for the Manolos!!! hands down. Navy looks STUNNING with lace. Also, the Barneys sale just started, I would definitely check out online and in-store the Manolos usually end up going on sale at some point, maybe even befriend a sales associate and see if they can give you a hint of when they may go on sale…Thats worked for me on several occasions :)

    Love those Manolos! I wish my shoes were more fun, they were cute but bride-y. They’re still in my closet waiting to be dyed a different color, 3 1/2 years later.

    Definitely would have been worth buying something more special that I would wear again!
