Change is the worst, amirightladies? I've seen many a blog that once was about things I actually cared about (i.e., food, make up, clothes) turn into wedding diaries, detailing the most inconsequential detail of some stranger’s wedding that I was NOT invited to. And so, I’m not doing that to you. Don’t get me wrong—I will plan the most gorgeous, over the top wedding you've ever laid your eyes on…all the gold and glitter will likely burn your corneas if you stare at it too long. But I don’t think it’s right to flip the focus of CupcakesOMG! from food and self-involvement to weddings. And self-involvement.
That said, I assume you’re interested in the “good stuff,” like jewelry and Save the Dates (coming soon) and of course, the shoes. So while I won’t bore you with the details of putting a guest list together (just elope!) or meeting the weirdest, and I mean BIZZAREST, florist of my lifeeeeeeee, I will show you my wedding Choos, because I know that’s the stuff you really care about.
A couple weeks ago, I went to Saks to get a pair of shoes stretched out a bit with a friend from work. As we were sitting there waiting for our Cinderella step-sister shoes to be refitted, she pointed out a pair of Jimmy Choo d’Orsay pumps in a glittery champagne color. While I had intended to buy a pair of Louboutains, I thought there was no harm in at least trying them on. They were so damn comfortable that I decided I needed Jimmy Choos instead.
Blah blah blah, these are the shoes I bought! I never saw them online—still can’t find them, they might be from last season?—but they only had one pair left in the store and it just kinda felt like destiny, ya know? Just as the other pair was, these are so comfortable! Not that I’d ever be caught dead doing one, but I’m pretty sure I could run a marathon in these.
And while I’m typically a 4.5 inch-heel kinda girl, these are only 2 ¼, which I think will be better for helping me last through the night. When you pay this much for a pair of shoes, it’s foolish to take them off after a couple hours, says me and every woman ever!!
So tell me married/engaged ladies--did you splurge big on wedding day shoes too? Were they Choos?? Do you think it's absurd to spend a month's rent on shoes (of course it is)?? What's your wedding day footwear philosophy?
