Happy Feet

Another item off of my "To-Do" list was shopping for shoes. Ummmmm, my favorite pasttime. I had been going back and forth and back again wondering if I should wear my colorful Pucci shoes with my new gown. When I was going to wear the Jim Hjelm gown, the Pucci shoes were perfect because there were no competing elements to the gown. But with the ruffly goodness that's as bold as a peacocks plume, that decorates the bottom portion of my gown, I didn't think I should have such a bold shoe.

The hunt began for the perfect shoe. I had tossed around a few ideas.. of course the ubiquitous Christian Louboutin

Or Rene Caovilla

Or Alexander McQueen (I couldn't find them anywhere but wanted them so badly, not for the wedding.. just because I had to have them)

Or Valentino

Although all the shoes are really beautiful, they just weren't The Ones. So I kept looking.. hoping I would find something... with that "That's IT" factor.

Then I found these:

Charles David Treasure Sandals

These spoke to me.. and I promptly ordered them. I received them in the mail today and they are ABSOLUTELY FREAKIN' GORGEOUS in person and on my feet!! Yea...we have shoes!

Besides being insanely fabulous with the huge bling-age, I loved that they were open... all over. Perfect for a long day of traipsing through New York for photos, sauntering down the aisle to marry my Treasure and dancing the night away with my new husband, friends and family. The only thing is that I didn't want to wear white shoes.. and although these are technically bone, I wanted to have some color on my feet. However, for comfy yet fab shoes, I will have to settle for color on my toes.

p.s your choice though is also gorgeous. You know I'm always up for some embellished goodness :-)

P.S. I love this... said...

Hi Captivate Me!

Thanks for stopping by. I truly love, love, love the first pair. I went to the Loubou store and tried them on and while they were fine standing still, the pain certainly did begin to ensue quickly, walking around the boutique. I thought they would be at least 5 minute shoes.. lol

Honestly I love the ones you got! They are gorgeous and actually look like they will be rather comfortable! (For heels that is ;) )
