So I went shoe shopping, and frankly, it’s about time! To be honest, I feel a wee bit behind on my overall bridal look.
I still need to purchase shoes, jewelry, figure out all my “something’s,” and decide on a veil. But it’s not like I don’t want to go shopping (because I do, I definitely do), it’s just that I’m afraid to commit to anything. I’ve never been someone obsessed with the accessorizing of an outfit, and suddenly I need to choose items that will be showcased in my photos for years to come. This is the big leagues baby and I’m scared!
Booking vendors and even choosing and ordering Evie all went pretty smoothly because I knew I had a timeline and I was able to make quick and smart decisions without second guessing myself. For some reason I’m convinced that there are just too many options for shoes and jewelry; thus I’m overwhelmed at the thought of making a selection!
Like I said last week, I did end up checking out the Glass Slipper Collection at DSW, but I’m sorry to report I just wasn’t feeling them. Sadly, there were no butterflies or giddiness. They have a shoe that is Cinderella-inspired and it is beautiful, but it’s not quite special enough. The display was nice though, and I didn’t have to look far when I entered the store!
Please excuse the crappy photos and the fact that I’m wearing the little nylon footsie things.
I can see the nod to Cinderella, but I’m still thinking I want more of a clear or nude colored heel in a very simple and classic style. I’m pretty picky when it comes to beading, and the beading on this shoe wasn’t cutting it. Plus, they were very tight and uncomfortable. The final result is, I’ll be looking elsewhere.
That same day I did look elsewhere, at a glittery gold peek-a-boo shoe:
Its’ glittery gold yumminess means I should definitely buy it for fun, but I don’t think it’s right for my bridal look. Back to the drawing board!
I do wish the Glass Slipper Collection shoe had worked out for one major reason though! On the bottom of each shoe is a carefully placed blue rhinestone.
So lovely and so sweet and SO SOMETHING BLUE. I’m actually having trouble with my something blue because while it’s a very popular color, I don’t feel strongly about blue. Now, “something purple” I could live with! (Note my pants in these photos.) I might end up adding my something blue to the bottom of my shoes anyway, so I just liked that they had already taken care of it!
Finally, if I were to get any shoe from the Glass Slipper Collection, I’d totally snag these Royal Pumps because they definitely give me butterflies!!

What do you think of the Cinderella-inspired shoe? Am I being too picky? Anyone else having trouble accessorizing your bridal look?
