Yes I spelt it right, I need Shelp. Shoe help!
I want a beautiful pair of shoes to walk up the isle in, twice. At the moment the law doesn’t acknowledge humanist ceremony as legal which means I have to get married twice.
This does not make me happy, except I have bought both dresses and I love them equally.
So now I may need two pairs of shoes!
Two you say, yes two. I need heals for the legal bit. Something gorgeous and star of the show. I want something flat or wedge for the actual wedding day. I want something I can wear all day! Something pretty. Sparkly.. not too sure.
I don’t mind a designer shoe but I am not going to turn my nose up at a high street shoe either. I am a budget bride after all.
I said from the beginning that I would rather have a beautiful pair of shoes than a super expensive wedding dress. An accessory I can wear again and again and take away on honeymoon.
So I went to shoe heaven
Have you been?
It’s a bit of a maze but it has all the pretty shoes.
The staff are really helpful and attentive. These are expensive shoes but oh so pretty.
I didn’t find any I loved except the Aquazzura Pom Pom shoes that they had in black and the wrong height! They are so beautiful, sexy and a wee bit too high. My mum loved them.
So I searched online and it looks like they are no longer available in my size.
Just look at them! I have to move on or scour Vestier for my perfect shoes. One thing I love about them that I didn’t know was the brands logo is a Pineapple which suits me to a t!
They are sold out- i have myself on a fair few waiting lists and watching Vestiaire like a hawk. We will see.
So now I need Shelp!
And I am getting it from one of my Danettes. She happens to be a shoemaker/ designer who worked for the RSC and ROH in the shoe department. Sourcing and making shoes.
I told you I picked my BMs well.
She has given me lots of options already but has told me not to rush!
So even though I would like them tucked away in their box, ready for me to break them in before the big day!
I will have to wait and except some more Shelp!
Sophia Webster shoes
Here is what I am looking for
- Not too high ( less than 3 inches)
- Peep toes or closed toes
- No black/ red
- Up for glitter and colour
How is your shoe hunt going?
