As the wedding date approaches, I will probably be blogging more about the wedding and less about programming.
My fiancée’s wedding shoes just arrived, and I might be more excited about them than she is.
We ordered them a few weeks ago from the Christian Louboutin in San Francisco. She wanted strappy shoes that were sold out, but we were able to place a custom order. We we’re able to get the style that she wanted, in the exact color that she wanted.
We were told that brides-to-be had the option of getting blue insoles, which turned out to be a great idea. The soles show through the PVC sides; in addition to the glitter, it really drives home the “Cinderella” feeling. A step up from the glitter would’ve been the Swarovski crystals, but that would’ve more than doubled the price of the shoes.
What I really appreciate is the attention to detail. The sides of the soles are all glitter, so it looks like she is tip-toeing on crystals when she slips the shoes on. And finally, the soles have a unique horseshoe design at the heel — again, all glittered up.
If you are looking for a “low-budget” alternative to designer Cinderella-inspired shoes, these definitely deserve consideration.
