Some of you will remember that I wanted flats for the wedding. But not lame-o slipper flats, something adorable, something special. And these adorable special flats? Where are they? They are not to be found! The lovely ladies of twitter tried to help me, filling my in box with links, but everything they found did not suit me.
And then the Nordstrom Catalog came out with their wedding section and all of the amazing strappy-ness got me. Like these and this and these over here. My bridesmaids are getting amazing shoes with petals and ruffles all over them, in the height they feel more comfortable in. As much as flats would keep me skipping around the chapel, I think I would be even more uncomfortable in footwear that didn’t make me sing.
So the plan is: amazing T-strap shoes with glitzy flower for photos and wedding, then some bedazzled (yet to be purchased or found) flats for the reception. And have I mentioned I’m more excited about my shoes than I am for the dress? It’s true.
Right now, the dress makes me anxious. Like ohmygod do I look good in it? Will it make me self conscious? By all means, Lauren, do not balloon up 20+ lbs because eventually you will have to zip that thing up. But the shoes, the shoes… I just have to walk in the shoes… and walk I can.
