“One shoe can change your life.” Cinderella
fact: i love shoes. actually, i can’t have enough of them. boots, booties, shooties, to-the-knee, over-the knee, the stiletto, the peep toe, the wedge, *gasp* the pump!
it is because of this adoration for fanciful footwear, i felt a heavy, yet totally self-imposed pressure to find the perfect wedding shoes. i mean, in terms of wedding day attire, it’s usually the dress that garners the center of attention… not for this girl. so i started on a mission to find the shoes to end all shoes.
alas, i realized wild, crazy, over the top didn’t really match the vibe of my dress. so i looked for something a bit more understated, but still, fabulous. and i found these:
oh, monsieur louboutin, you shouldn’t have! (ok, for $840, you really, really shouldn’t have.)
still no. i wasn’t going crazy for the pop of color. (and i love that current trend.)
so, i wasn’t going for over the top, i wasn’t gaga for glitter, and i wasn’t feeling colorful.
i was feeling frustrated.
and then it happened, out of nowhere. i realized i was feeling… audrey. as in, the incomparable miss hepburn. and thus my search for the perfect wedding shoe came to a surprisingly classic end. hello, beautiful.
it is the most buttery of creams, topped like a delicious birthday cake with the most feminine of details. it is to me, 4-inch heeled, peep-toe perfection.
i know. i’m shocked.
have you ever started a search thinking you knew exactly what you wanted, only to end up with the complete opposite?
