I haven't always considered myself a "shoe person" but it just kind of happened over time. I love shoes. They are just such a fun way to spics up and outfit. For our wedding I would have it no other way. My hunt for the perfect shoes led me across 3 provinces.
My requirements, I thought, were simple enough:
1. They had to have some form of ruffle/bow/flower/jewel (you know...something to add that girly-ishness to them!)
2. They had to be $50 or less.
3. They had to be in some shade of off-white or light gold.
4. They had to be comfy enough to wear (and run around in) all day.
I looked in Moncton, New Brunswick, all over Ontario...and finally found them in Winnipeg, Manitoba!
I almost settled for one of these two pairs:
|Off-white shoe from The Shoe Company|
|Gold shoes from Aldo|
I'm so glad that I didn't though. Because while in a very small Spring store in Manitoba I saw My Shoes (I declared them mine on the spot) ON SALE (for $39.99) and there were only 2 pairs left, and one of them was MY SIZE! That never happens, I have pretty big feet... (9.5)!
Aren't they great?
For the guys and gals, they all had shiny black shoes. I had the girls in flashy gold originally, but ended up choosing a more subtle champagne-gold for my accent colour so I picked patent leather black to go with the guys' shoes.
