views on shoes...

Since we (okay... I) picked our wedding colors, I really really wanted to wear dark pink shoes. The only problem was that I couldn't decide if that could be done without looking silly or like it was "too much." Well, my fears were put to rest when I saw Lyndsy's wedding pictures on Yellow Brick Blog. First of all, those pictures are gorgeous! And, I absolutely love how her pink shoes look. And even better yet, she wore the same shoes I picked, the Stuart Weitzman Solitaire Pump:

These babies are the perfect color and style. The downside... they are $325 and I cannot find a size 6 to save my life. While my quest for these continue, I have found some alternatives..

These are the Liza D'Orsays from J.Crew and they are currently on sale for $127!! I know, they are almost the exact same shoes, but the closed toe gets me. Maybe I can just grab an exacto knife and fix that little problem?? or not!

These are the "Charles" by Charles David, which fit the color and bow criteria, but gold heels? I don't know... they would be the only gold things at the whole wedding. Anyone have a fuschia sharpie I can borrow??

And last but CERTAINLY not least, the Kate Spade Gali...

WOW! I mean really, WOW, right??Aren't they gorgeous and perfect?!?! I actually just found these today as I was borrowing (stealing) pics for this post. They are also $325... but Zappo's puts Kate Spade on sale pretty frequently. What do you all think? Anyone else wear colorful shoes on their big day??

I think the Kate Spade shoes are perfect! Pink shoes would be so much fun. Let us know what you decide!

I really like the J Crew ones... they make very comfortable shoes. I really think the J Crew ones are open toed.....

I love the idea of the colored shoe! I do have to admit that I love the first one the best - but the Kate Spade ones are awful cute too (I just have a hard time with sling backs sometimes).

I will keep my eye out for them for you. Size six - lucky girl! My size 10 boat feet tuck under in shame. *Laugh*

Thank you so much for the sweet compliment on our wedding pics. It was such a dream of a day. I really hope you can find the Stewie's because they were really comfortable! However, those Kate Spades are equally adorable and well worth the price tag. I had to justify the purchase but am so glad I did! Best of luck with all your planning!

Sarah said...

I definitely think you should go with pink for your shoes!! I like the JCrew ones! And the price is really nice as well! Good Luck!

I am also planning to wear pink shoes for my wedding! I think the J Crew shoes are open toe..

The Adventures of Maverick & the Mrs. said...

Those are all FABULOUS! Rock the pink for all of us, girl!

Tara said...

Yay to pink shoes! I am also wearing those stewies- they are so pretty in person. A little hint... Bloomingdales had these on sale- I had to call a store and they found them in my size at another store and shipped them to me... for under $200! So do a little price/sale hunting if you find a pair you love!

Nelly said...

love them all but Ill always stick by Kate Spade.

Preppy Pink Crocodile said...

Such a cute idea! I have a friend who did something similar and it was darling. Because, seriously you would never ever again wear white shoes. But pink could be worn many times over. Practical, cute and another way to remember your special day.

Buford Betty said...

Oh how fun!!! Those J Crew ones look open-toed to me though... are they not? They sell that style all the time and they're open.

Anyway, I think you can totally pull it off as long as you make that your main focal point and tone down any other major accessories. I love an eye-catching shoe. So fun and unexpected! :-)

Mackensie said...

Definitely do the pink shoes! I like the JCrew ones...they also have a pink pair with like a cute puffy ball on the toe that come in pink. Just throwin' it out there haha.

Jessie and I like the first shoes; we'll take up a collection and buy them for you for Christmas haha
