My custom designed shoes arrived in Chicago early last week and frankly, the welcome party is still raging on”¦I kid of course, but they are gorgeous. They might not be the wedding shoe for everyone, but to me they are beautiful and perfect for an adult princess or a Cinderella wannabe (as opposed to a small child). And most importantly, they fit. (phew.)
I used the Etsy shop Design Your Pedestal and I can’t speak more highly of its owner, Kate. Not only did she work with me to help create my dream shoes, but she also extended her Black Friday discount so I didn’t have to rush any decisions. And it was HER idea to incorporate our family tartan.
My initial thought was to have her make square brooches out of our family tartan to used as shoe clips, but she wasn’t happy with how they turned out, so sent me another idea where the fabric was made into a ruffle and highlighted with a sparkly brooch. Well, I loved it.
And with that I’ll leave you with some photos. The pictures don’t do really do the shoes justice, but I can’t bear to keep them a secret! And it only makes sense to share them since you’ve all been on this shoe journey with me from the beginning! Enjoy”¦
(all photos personal, my apologies for the dirty floor)
Would you ever consider getting custom-designed shoes? My shoes were 200 dollars with the discount. But there’s not another pair like them in the world!
