So Ryan took me shopping for boots for my Christmas present, and while we were boot shopping (I found the perfect pair of brown flat boots, they are SO cute) I kept my eyes open for red shoes for the wedding. Ryan discovered this discount shoe warehouse in St. Louis (It's right off Olive just after 170, PS). They have really great brands and the prices are amazing-they had a pair of Kate Spade heels for $100. While I was wrestling my way into a couple pairs of boots, Ryan found 2 pairs of red shoes that he brought me to try on. The first pair was pretty, but strappier than what I had in my head. The second pair took my breath away...
They are tall my friends, but they have a little platform built into the bottom so your feet don't suffer too terribly. Unfortunately, I needed a 7 and they only had a 6.5 and a 7.5. I bought the 6.5, and I plan to walk around the house in them and look into shoe stretcher-thingies. They really aren't that much too small, but I am getting married in July, so I'd like a bit more wiggle room. They are Nina shoes and I haven't seen this style on the Nina website ever, so I'm thinking they are from a season or 2 ago. The grand total was under $60, including tax!
They are perfect, and I am so excited to cross that off my list. All thanks to Ryan, who spotted them! The timing was great, as my dress comes in a few weeks and I'll definitely need these for fittings!
What shoes are you wearing for your wedding?
PS: My friend Melissa got engaged this weekend! She's my only non-blogger friend who's engaged (thank goodness for you all, I'd go nuts if I didn't have people to talk wedding with!), and I can't wait to see how her wedding is going to turn out!
