shooooooes

Shopping yesterday for wedding accoutrements...I was not able to find a bra-pushup-corset thingy, but I did run across some shoes that might work. I wanted some ballet flats but it is impossible to find any that are simple and white and have a teeny heel (very long dress in the back, could use a little heel action). Since the ceremony and reception are all outdoors, I can't have any serious pointy heels (or I will make holes all around the yard) but I think this might be ok. My dress is champagne colored so bright white is a no-no...these are kinda shimmery and the color is called "bone". Thoughts? For $20 I might just get them anyways. lol.

34 days!

These are lovely. And sweet and not too stuffy. Ooh, you'll have such fun. Also, a little bird tells me you completed your MBA!!! Congrats!!

Those would work, and I think a lower heel is a must at a wedding, otherwise your feet will kill at the end of the day.

For a corset-y, push-up bra thingie, have you tried Fredrick's? I've had good luck buying bras for formal dresses there in the past.

Definitely get these shoes at $20. Even if you decide not to wear them for your wedding, you'd wear them at some time. They look classic.

Try looking at Endless.com for shoes. I've ordered from them before and they have free return shipping--which I've also done. Very easy.

ceejay, the little bird was right. i finished and on saturday i get to walk with my cap and gown and get a rolled up blank piece of paper that represents the diploma they will be mailing to me at a later date. lol.

wendy, I hadn't thought of Fredrick's but that's a good idea. I don't think we have one around here, but I'll check their website. Actually, I'm getting kind of annoyed with the whole thing because even the department stores don't carry them in stock, they say they can "order" one for me...but I'm like, hey, I wanna try them on and see how they work, kthanks.

Christine, I did end up buying them. :) For $20 it's a steal. And when I got them home and put them next to my dress, they were a super-close match (which is hard given my dress is not "white"). Now I just have to test the heels in the grass....
