I Got Shoes!

Remember how I was telling you yesterday about my secret fret list? Well, I am happy to report on another item that has recently seceded from said list: my shoes.

Yes, I know. I love shoes. And I used to talk about shoes ALOT. Then I decided that I was going to wear shoes I already own - fabulous teal peep toes. But then I came to my senses and realized that despite our ceremony being only 30 minutes long, that would mean 30 minutes of me standing still in heels. Not a good look. Not going to happen.

So I solicited the assistance of my fabulous honor maids to help me find shoes that were flat, allowed me to have my toes out (can we say cute pre-wedding pedi), but still gave off a "bridal" vibe. In my mind that should have been easy to find, but I was having a really hard time finding a viable option. MnOH Krissi really came thru for me, and found these little darlings on Piperlime.

Before I found shoes, I was really dreading having to buy them. See, the best part about wearing shoes you already own is that you've already paid for them (duh!). However, I cant get too worked up about these little things - they only cost me about $30. Cute and budget friendly is definitely my kind of shoe.

I have to start my dress fittings within the next couple of weeks as I'm told they could take up to 4 weeks to complete, and now I'm ready. My shoes were the last thing I needed to get. Now when I go for my fitting, the seamstress and I will be able to adequately decide if Elle needs to be hemmed, and how to arrange her bustle.

65 days to go! Yay shoes!


  1. First of all, I LOVE Piperlime. You know that you can use any of the GAP brand store cards for payment, right?
