Okay, I lied.

Another insignificant-but-awesome wedding detail post.  And then I SWEAR tomorrow I’ll get back to the meat-and-potatoes of wedding stuff.

Today’s fun item also arrived by mail.  I saw the UPS man out the window while I was getting out of the shower, panicked that he wouldn’t leave the package if I couldn’t get to the door in time, and threw on the first clothes I could find.  I ran down the stairs, TWISTING MY ANKLE on the way (ow), only to find that he had…left the package there and walked away.  Great.

I was too excited to take a picture of the box.  Sorry.  Here is a re-enactment of opening the box:

Ta-da!  Wedding shoes!  Even the box is cute and pink.  They are by J.Crew, style Greer.  I got them on sale, which makes them even more exciting, especially considering my dream feathered Manolos were upwards of $600.  Eesh.

Here are some more glamor shots:

I’m not going to model the shoes because feet are weird looking in pictures.  But they fit well and look great.

Oh, and Buckley enjoyed my purchase too:

I’ve been searching for wedding shoes literally since we got engaged (which, since I haven’t mentioned that yet, was December 31, 2008).  Everything I liked was at LEAST $300, which sadly, doesn’t fit into my budget.  I don’t mind paying a lot for shoes, but…that was a bit much for one day.  These were $129.99 on sale, and I couldn’t be happier.

I definitely wanted colored shoes, but all the pink ones I found were fuschia and all the blue ones didn’t really go with the feel of my dress.  These are a very pretty rosy pink with a pretty gold heel (which matches our whole wedding scheme perfectly).  I also wanted something with a bit of a heel since Tim is…let’s see…nine inches taller than I am.  These have a 3.5 inch heel, which is tall but not unmanageable.   I also wanted a heel (and this is stupid) because I just don’t feel like I’m dressed up when I wear flats, no matter how nice they are.  (No offense to dressy flats lovers!)

Anyway, I will now sadly pack these into a box until my dress fittings start in March or so.  Sad times.

And finally, since Buckley got a picture, meet my little blogging companion Southpaw:

I blame her for most typos, because her incessant rumbling tends to throw me off.

Have a great afternoon, all!
