The shoe to wear with everything

dolce vita booties, $78 Shop Lola
I got these booties for my DC trip and literally wore them with everything from a mini dress to maxi dress to cargo skinnies. I’ve never owned a shoe I could/would wear with anything. I’m obsessed. Here’s one example.

BIG News: If the shoe fits…

Dear friends, I’ve hit a big milestone in my bride-dom. I purchased shoes that I intend to wear with my wedding gown. Apparently the shoes you are going to wear on that day are imperative to the hemming process. Who would have thought? Now, I know you haven’t seen the actual dress but I will divulge that it’s white. wink wink.
What do we think? They were quite affordable ($109) compared to the Miu Miu’s I’ve been lusting after. And, don’t worry there’s a 60 day return policy in case the glitter actually looks like a kindergarten art project.
I’d love to hear your thoughts. I’m a shoe girl so I wanted something fun. I always wear heels, plus my intended is over a foot taller than I am so I never feel bad about wearing stilts. I figured out (when I wore flats to our engagement session) that I don’t look as small and fragile next to him as much as short and squatty.

Bridal Inspiration {Shoes}

In dreamland, my bridal shoes would be Miu Miu, McQueen, Jimmy Choo or Louboutin. Dream with me, won’t you? This is if I go the more traditional route…I will have to devote an entire post to non-traditional shoes.

Discovery! Must Share!

I am excited. Long, drawn-out story but I just discovered Sam Edelman. I’m almost embarrassed I was not already familiar!  I saw a girl wearing the most adorable boots on ebay and messaged her about them (obv they weren’t for sale but she was nice enough to divulge the brand). This lead me to discover that I am obsessed with any and all shoes by Sam Edelman. Esp these gorgeous booties that friendly ebay girl was wearing:

But it doesn’t stop there!

Literally every shoe is staring at me with weepy puppy eyes begging to have a home on my shoe shelf and my feet.

Am considering blowing christmas savings (who am I kidding?) on them.

A few more faves…

These lovely shoes can be purchased online at tons of retailers. Full list here.
