The shoes were SO important to me. This was the one time in my life I felt that it was truly okay to splurge on shoes. Splurging to me is not Louboutins or Manolos, just so you know. That is still way out of my realm of splurging at the moment….maybe one day…my idea of splurging is Kate Spade. I think the moment I got engaged I knew in my heart of all hearts that my wedding shoes would be Kate Spade. Once I decided that, there was no turning back.
Here were some of my favorites that I really wanted –
Charm and Clarice were the two that I seriously wanted. I never got to try on Clarice, but I got to try on Charm and talk about sassy! I loved them SO SO much. I feel like I would have left a trail of glitter everywhere I walked in those! My husband was with me when I went to the Kate Spade boutique – and there was another pair there I had NEVER seen online or anywhere before. They were the most expensive of course – but they were the same color family as my bridesmaid’s dresses and they were SO sparkly and adorable! I tried them on and I was DONE! They were so perfect and SO me and I just knew they were the ones! They are called Crown and the name fit perfect – I wanted to feel like a queen on my day!
I finished the wedding night blister-free, but I changed into TOMS for most of the reception. I was so happy with my shoes and I don’t regret spending the money at all. Girls – don’t let anyone make you feel bad for wanting to splurge on shoes, this is your one chance to get away with it!
