shoes, shoes, shoes!!

A few weekends ago, I finally decided to venture out to buy wedding shoes.  I spent a lot of time at Nordstrom, Bebe & Aldo… and I found cute shoes but came home with three pairs of shoes that were all not for my wedding.  Woopsies.

I bought a pair of Jimmy Choo’s at Nordstrom’s last weekend for the 2nd event (for the white dress) keeping my finger’s crossed that they might go with the first dress too, but sadly they don’t!  I chose these Choo’s (the Isabele’s) because the heels were just 2 1/2 inches (great for dancing!) and they were comfy yet also flashy.  In love!

I haven’t tried them on with the dress yet as it’s at my MIL’s house, so if those don’t work out, I might get these super cute Badgley Mishka’s in white (or in gold for the first wedding event):

In my shoe shopping for the first wedding event…in which essentially the only walking I’ll be doing is down the aisle to my husband-to-be, I can go with higher heels and not have to worry about comfort as much as I have to do with the 2nd event.

For the Pakistani Wedding, I want something with gold embellishments that’s a little bit fun.  I saw these because I love the lace-up backs, but I’m not too sure they will work:

These just might be more bachelorette party than Wedding…. just maybe.  Cute still.  The BCBG Anya peep-toe is $198.

Since I love all that glitters, these other BCBGs sequined sling-back heels (just $178) caught my eye:

These shoes have potential as the wedding shoes… we’ll see.

I also saw these Steve Madden’s online at Nordstrom… they have a t-strap like I really imagine for my wedding shoes but I just don’t think they’ll be comfortable.  They’re glittery like I want:

Steve Madden "Haylow" heels

At $89.95, I really cannot complain.  The heels are 4″ PLUS a 1″ platform so maybe the 5″ total is a big ambitious for a bride wearing tons of heaving clothes on her wedding to balance in.  Super cute though, what do we think?

My ideal shoe is this Ivanka Trump creation... if it came in gold.  I love these shoes because the stones make em pop more.  (They also come in black!!)

Ivanka Trump "Alluvia"

In LOVE!  The black ones are even more cute!!

Now for a lust-list (like if Nordstrom’s carried these I would buy them for the day and then return them!!)

Valentino pumps

These Christian Louboutain Balota shoes… strappy, gold, and everything I’d love for the first event (but at $1095 far, far from budget!!)

Wish me luck finding shoes for the first event!! ❤


My Wedding Dress Arrived….

Sooo I’m pretty excited about this but my wedding dress (a gharara) from Pakistan got in 2 weeks ago!

I ordered it based off a photo, and the colors are spot on and look incredibly beautiful.  That was my biggest nightmare…. the colors looking off and not good.  Thankfully, the colors are JUST what I wanted and I could not be happier.

I just don’t know what to do about a couple of things on the outfit.  I’ve only shown it to like three people, and they all like it, but I’m having issues with the top.  I think it needs more embroidery.  I don’t know… I just told my mom and she just told me that she doesn’t want to send it back.  I don’t know what to do!! We spent a lot of money and I don’t think it’s BAD, it is just NOT what I expected.  I had a different idea in mind for the embroidery on the top and the photo reflected that too… but the outfit doesn’t have it.

Those are the risks you take when you order based on a photo.   I just realized that we spent as much as I probably would have ordering directly from another designer.

Maybe I’m just stressing, and don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my outfit.  I really truly do.  Just not sure what to do.


Oh also! My dress for the Macedonian event is ready!!!  YAY!  I have to pick it up this weekend.
