My wedding shoes!
Personal photos / They are actually more of a teal color in person. They look kind of green in this picture.
These are SO not what I envisioned myself wearing for the wedding. In fact, I did not want to go the blue shoe route at all. But then I saw these in the window on my way to work one day and I thought, "Oh my goodness, what cute shoes! Could they work as wedding shoes?" The store wasn't open at the time of my early hour commute and I figured they were probably too expensive anyway. Weeks went by and I would pass by the shoes everyday, always giving them some attention. "Hey cute shoes." But never going back to the store when they were open...
Then one night as I was walking to the subway ready to head home, I remembered the shoes. I figured it never hurts to ask, why not see how much they cost. Well I'm glad I did! They only had one pair left and it was in my size! And the shoes were in my budget! I tried them on, sent a picture text to my Matron of Honor and got the approval I needed to make the purchase.
Modeling my lovely shoes. Artemis had to photo bomb.
Personal Photos / Another view. You can see the color a lot better in this shot. And our printer....
I thought I might have buyers remorse the next day, but no I'm happy as a clam! I never envisioned myself wearing shoes like this, because I've never seen shoes like this! They are so unique and perfect for my vintage/theater wedding! So the moral of the story is, if you see something that catches your eye check it out! Yes it might end up being too expensive, but it also might be just what you were searching for!
Did you stumble upon something for your wedding? Shoes, jewelry, etc?
P.S. For anyone interested in these shoes the brand is called Seychelles. I didn't look it up because I didn't want to find the shoes at a better price... Those kind of things frustrate me so I figured I just won't look. :)
