I like comfort. But I also like originality. So naturally, I wanted both of these elements when it came to my wedding shoes. Though I rarely wear fancy shoes, I am a firm believer in shoes making a huge difference in one's mood. So after I bought my dress, my hunt for awesome shoes began.
Here was my shoe shopping criteria:
* They have to be awesome.
* They have to be tall(ish).
* They have to be super comfortable. (I don't want to do the switch into flats for the reception thing.)
* They have to have their own personality.
I also originally thought they would have to be gold, but after looking in several stores, I decided that it was not a requirement.
So I started my shoe hunt. I thought it would be easy, but it wasn't. The tall ones were too uncomfortable, and none of them were nearly as awesome as I wanted. Then I tried on these:
I found them in the sale rack and they were like heaven on my feet.
They were cute, tall, and incredibly comfortable. But awesome? Not
really. Then a lightbulb went off. I could make them awesome!
So that is what I've done. A trip to the craft store resulted in some
black lace and pretty metal flower things. A couple Mabel feathers and
BAM! Awesome wedding shoes.
