Belated Wedding Wednesday post

I've only been doing the Wedding Wednesday thing for two weeks and I already missed a Wednesday. Well, here's a belated post. A half post, really. I hope this tides you over until next Wednesday.

For the last two weeks, I've been mildly obsessed with shoes. So obsessed that next week's Wedding Wednesday post will be all about them. Just for fun, though I thought I'd show you wedding shoe purchase #1, which was boxed up for return about three minutes after I saw them.

I impulsively bought these from Rue La La, one of those flash sale websites. I like Rue a lot and they routinely have pretty great deals. These were a total steal at 50% off the retail price (I had already looked at them on another site). I clicked. I waited.

When the box came, I quickly unwrapped the toe, my favorite part of the shoe. It was a peep toe with a little, satin knot on top with a jewel inside. I wasn't thrilled with the quality of the construction when I inspected it up close, but from afar, the toe was as pretty as in the picture I had looked at online.

The problem was that attached to that cute toe was a shoe that I could only imagine would look good on a very petite woman (an Eva Longoria type) or a hooker. I'm 5'7" and I didn't think I could pull them off.

I put the one shoe I unwrapped on momentarily to confirm that I would look like a hooker in them. The shoe was very comfortable, as one would expect a $200 shoe to be, but it definitely didn't say "bride" to me. It's too much, right?

Tune in next Wednesday for more shoe talk.


  1. ahhh shoes were one of the hardest things for me to choose. I waited until a week or two before the wedding and just settled with something boring and I 100% regret it. So shoe it up dahling! ,3

  2. Hmm, I'm not sure how you could look like a stripper in a wedding dress... but I love shoe posts so bring them on!

  3. They say bride to me, but there's no way you'll want to wear those for more than 20 mins. I had high shoes at my wedding, too, and they came off 1/2way through the reception!

  4. You know, I would love to know why these manufacturer's insist on making all the dress heels 4 inches tall. I'm looking for aqua satin pumps/heels for my wedding, and it's next to impossible to find any that aren't tall hooker shoes. I want to walk down the aisle, not hobble! ha

  5. I gotta tell you, I love the shoes. They do say bride to me, but don't take my advise, I wear super high heels (I'm 5'0)! You'll fine the right ones-cant wait for the shoe post.

  6. They're pretty shoes. . . (except up close - what is with that cruddy finishing quality in your close-up? And for $200? Ugh) but I think they would be deadly to wear for an entire wedding. Good luck with the shoe shopping!!

  7. Talk about "tripping" down the aisle!

  8. The shoe is pretty nice but the heel OMG! And I wear heels a lot. Just make sure whatever you buy you also buy a comfortable back up to dance in.

  9. I could not wear those. I feel like a hooker in any heel though. I stay at 3" or below and I am very careful about the style so it says "class" and not "ho". Yes, I think they are a little too much, but you are in the ballpark on the style!

    What did you decide?

  10. All I can think of when I see those is "I would fall flat on my face if those even came within a ten foot vicinity of my feet." However, if you have more grace than I do, I think they're lovely, and not too hookerish. Bring on the shoe talk!

  11. Hooker-esque, they are not. Uncomfortable, they are. I own a similar style in black. They'd look terrific on you, but I suppose it also depends on what type of dress you'll be wearing and if you're trying to look taller. Even if that's the case, you have to think about where the hemline hits will change once you put on your flats at the reception (a must, from what I understand), because you don't want your dress dragging the floor too much. If it were me, I would just go with a kitten heel, to be safe (in more ways that one!).
