Shoe Dreams

I frickin’ love shoes. My closet is completely filled to the brim with beautiful shoes. The thing that pushes it over the edge is that I tend to be a bargain shopper. So if I find a super-cute pair of flats for $12 and they come in three different colors, I end up saying, “They’re so cheap! I can buy all three!” And as a result”¦my closet is completely full.

Naturally, wedding shoes have been on my mind since the very beginning of my engagement. My dream pair?

Oh, Kate Spade, you know exactly what I want. I love Kate Spade so much that I wrote a little haiku:

Glitter, Sparkle, Shine.

A tiny pep in my step.

Kate, you know my heart.

Can we just take a moment to admire some of Kate Spade’s beautiful creations?

Sigh”¦but you know, as much as I love Kate Spade, I’ve never actually had a pair of Kate Spade shoes on my feet. Those beauties from the first two pictures are her “Charm” shoes, and they retail for $325. 🙁 I’m usually unwilling to spend more than $50 or so on a pair of shoes, so $325 is just waaaaaaaay too much for me.


What’s really silly is that I probably won’t even wear heels. I hardly ever do, and I’m pretty sure I’ll want to wear flats, especially because our ceremony is going to be outside. But of course, I could always wear these flats”¦

They’re $40 cheaper! But still $285”¦sad day. I think I’m going to have to give up on my dreams of a Kate Spade shoe. I just wish there were good look-a-likes. But I don’t think I’m going to find that signature bow anywhere else.

Suggestions, hive?

    I really love the Kate Spade Corinne shoe (the teal with silver glitter) and they are even on sale right now at Zappos – but even the sale price ($263) is too much for me!

    I Gave in to these shoes. I bought them on piperlime using a giftcard i received for my birthday, Bana Republic rewards points, using my br card extra discount of 15% plus another 10% piperlime had.. They were still expensive. I figured its my wedding and i am going to treat myself to the most fun fab shoes out there and i am a big fan of katespade girly/ladylike look… I am so excited about these shoes 🙂 and my wedding colors are navy with Hot Pink… So much fun
