Inde-shoe-scion

Remember the shoe shopping I did? The package arrived this weekend. Woohoo! We have some clear losers and some maybe winners in this game o’ shoe. Let’s get right to business.

3 Ninas walk into a bar…

Culver, Elga, Electra

The verdict?

No wins here.

The Culver was the most sensible but I felt it lacked something special I wanted in my wedding shoe.

The Elga I wanted to love but there was no peep in the toe despite being a peep toe.

The Electra had the same problem and were too tall. I love the satin bow.

Next up…

Randall, meet Laela. Laela, Randall.

Another Badgley Mischka FAIL! What is with these shoes? I previously also tried Randall’s cousin the Randee and had the same issue as many of its reviewers – way too tall. Way too wobbly. ‘Sup, Badgley’s??

Super cute but I can barely stand without falling over.

And finally the blue Pour La Victoire Laela’s. At 3.25″, compared to the other shoes, that’s downright reasonable. Plus I love the bow! These girls were comfortable, cute, and would provide that hidden pop of blue under my wedding dress.

Lobster tested. Buddy approved.

Still, I’m not ready to commit.

Do you think I should keep looking? Or quit while I’m ahead?

    ah!! I LOVE those blue ones! I jealously eyed them on zappos for months – but I knew they’d be WAY too tall for me (I’m 5’10″ and my husband is 6′). So, in honor of me being unable to wear them, you MUST! :) They are perfect.

    I had the same issue with the Randalls. Most. Uncomfortable. Shoe. Evah! Love the blue and I am a little jealous, I was looking for a sapphire blue like that for the longest! But if they don’t make your heart sing, keep them and keep looking. At least you’ll know you have a fall-back.

    OH, I’m soooo sad the Badgley Mischka ones didn’t work, my mouth is watering!!! The blue ones are super cute when they’re on!! I think they will give you that pop you want and have that wedding wow factor!

    Love the shoes! I say hang onto those for now, but since you don’t seem like you’re 100% in love keep looking and if you find nothing, at least you know you already have 1 great pair.

    I really wanted the Badgley Mishka Randall ones..do they come in an ivory color? I love the tall heel, but I only see them in bright white!

    [...] The alarm barely went off and I jumped out of bed. I consider myself lucky for getting a full seven hours of restful sleep the night before the wedding. How is that? I cut myself off from “wedding planning duty” by the rehearsal and enjoyed myself through the rehearsal dinner. At 7 AM, I drew open the sun shades blinding my sisters (who slept in the king size bed with me). I was ready…to get ready. I had my blue shoes… [...]
