Me Wedding Shoes
After long hours scouring the internets and searching the stores, I finally found my wedding shoes. A really great friend named Nordstrom came through for me and delivered the perfect shoe. Thanks Nordstrom, as always.
Nordstrom is either an angel or the devil, depending on how you look at it. Today I am saying angel because I HAD to buy wedding shoes, however, next time I leave there with a not-so-justified purchase, I may have to call them the devil. Just sayin'.
Anyway, these pictures really do not do these shoes justice at all. The little band that winds around the top of the foot towards the ankle is made of little rhinestones and in real life, they sparkle SO much.
Here is another view. When I was picking out my dress, I was adamant that it have absolutely no beading, sequins or embellishments of any kind. Zip. Zilch. Zero. I really love the look of a simple wedding dress and, while I drove some of the girls in the dress shops crazy, I didn't want any sparkle. However, with the shoes I felt a bit differently. I love the little bit of sparkle that this will add and I feel just lovely with these shoes on - which I may or may not have worn around the house with my sweats on. On numerous occasions. While I loaded the dishwasher. May or may not have done that.
P.S. - Note to any brides out there searching for wedding shoes: I highly recommend searching in places that don't specify "wedding shoes" as you will find a much prettier selection. I found many of the designated wedding shoes to be quite drab and clunky.
P.P.S. - If you are interested in these shoes for yourself, as they would go with a multitude of outfits, they can be found here.
