Dan is only really 2 inches or so taller than I. Yet, I am a shoe lover..I worship shoes of all shapes from flats to 5 inch stilettos…if I could, I’d convert a bedroom into a shoe closet and buy every shoe I ever fell in love with. I have a small, okay, BIG, obsession with shoes..so much that I have to promise Mr. K5 that I won’t visit the shoe department if we go to Target together. He’s a funny one. I will sometimes spend an hour or two at DSW pacing up and down every aisle making sure to look at every shoe in the place…of course the clearance rack is the first place I run to. Never know what you’ll find. But one thing I must add is that I am a size 10 in open-toe shoes and size 11 in closed-toe shoes. Annoying. So the clearance rack mostly always has hideous stuff in my sizes. Oh well.
Back to the point – I can’t wear heels on our wedding day. I cannot be taller than the groom. Some brides are okay with that. I am not.
So I’ve begun my search for amazing flats in all sorts of colors, just bookmarking page after page of glorious shoes. Bridesmaids dresses haven’t been decided on yet so I’m waiting until then to really zero in on a color. And, yes, I said color. I can’t wear an all-white satin “bridal flat”. It’s not me. I want something fun, maybe with a little embellishment.
Enough chatter though – here are just some of my favorites so far, found via Zappos.com.
Romantic Soles Geneva in Teal Satin and Blue Satin
*if I had blue shoes, that could totally be my “something blue”
Me Too Lilium – Fuchsia Satin
Nine West Zalta in Navy
Block Raphaela in Silk Pink
These would actually work well with this lovely Maggie Sottero Venecia gown:
AK Anne Klein Mavra in Pewter Multi and White Multi*
*yes, I know I said no white, but these are seriously adorable and can be an exception to the rule!
From DSW – SM Lovely Flat in Blue
! And if I could wear pumps… here are just a few I think are adorable and would make a total statement…
