In her (bridal) shoes
Going against the norm that every bridal shoe is silver or gold, with metal ornaments and something shinny on top of them, today I will show you other options to complement your wedding gown and also differentiate. Buying bridal shoes is the only time in a woman’s life that spending 1,000 dollars on a single pair is not a crime punished with 6 months of complimentary house keeping. So enjoy shopping expensive and tasteful shoes, and bare in mind to buy something that you could wear elsewhere without being mistaken as jilted. Today fashion is evolved on a daily, if not hourly basis; although there are some limitations when it comes to the wedding gown (concerning mostly religious ceremonies), the shoes are still a hands on field where every bride can choose whatever she likes, whether it is her favorite chuck tailors, custom made havaianas, or even clear heels. Whatever suits you best. You can go with peep toes and pumps, but you can pick them in your favorite color instead of white, you can also embed your wedding theme to your shoe (example for navy style weddings choose blue shoes, for ecological themed weddings choose green or khaki shoes), if you are 6” tall, what are your options? Don’t get frustrated while looking, just keep reading this post and I assure you that you will find lots of options to add to your “want-now” lists, even if your not getting married this summer.
Charlotte Olympia Dellal is my personal shoe goddess. Shoe lover and addicted to skyscraper heels herself, with more than 400 pairs in her possession, by 2007 decided that what was out there was not satisfactory to her needs so she began designing her own shoes. From it’s very first collection, Charlotte Olympia shoes were best sellers and became easily distinguishable due to their craftsmanship, originality and of course the little gold spider web on their soles. Hollywood loved them so did our legs and the rest is history. Among it’s best sellers, there’s Paloma, an instant classic 14 mm satin heel (which is a no no if your height is equal to your future husband) available in rainbow colours, and also in ivory, perfectly suitable for nuptials. If you are insisting on wearing a white color shoe, please choose this
While researching for original and out-of-the-box bridal shoes for this article, I ran across french exclusive bridal shoe company named Vouelle and realised how little I know about fashion after all. Vouelle created at 2008 from two American girlfriends, studying in Paris, Melissa and Michelle, to cover the later ”s need for the perfect bridal shoes when her time came. Of course the duo was already involved with fashion since Melissa is a Parson’s School of Fashion graduate and an intern at Lanvin’s, Albert Elbaz at that time, and Michelle has studied finance and worked in fashion as well. Their third partner is Michelle’s husband. They manufacture all their shoes in Italy and of course every pair is handmade. Gina is the most eccentric pair of shoes a bride can possible choose/find in white color, but you can select this pair only if your gown and personality matches its edginess.
If you’re still not convinced for their originality in bridal shoes, check out their capsule satin bridal pumps collection
For this purpose you can choose among a huge variety fromι Pretty Ballerinas who’s not only pretty by name, but also very original and full of imagination. They came in different colors, textures and with different messages or styles, but remember to choose the ones that fit your style best. The following pair is my personal favorite, and also the most amazing wedding gift idea, and it also has a dual meaning since you can use it to write on it the names of your single friends!
Last but definitely not least, french Repetto ballerinas are also strongly considerable.
