Her Something Blue

My good friend of 10 years and first friend in Charleston, Holly, is getting married in May.  She's having an outdoor wedding on a beautiful Southern plantation.  Her dress is breathtaking and she has picked beautiful bridesmaid dresses in a lovely Tiffany blue color.  We had dinner the other night and she asked for my help in finding her the perfect bridal shoes.  (She knows me well!)  She said that she may like to wear blue to coordinate with her bridesmaids.  It's all about the pictures, friends!

I've combed the web and this is what I found.  A few greenish blues, a few dyeables, and a few special, classic ivory pairs. 

These may be too green, but I love love love them!



These have a little more blue in them and they're so affordable, it's insane!







Did you know about the site My Glass Slipper?  They take designer shoes and dye them in one of their many options or they can take a swatch of your fabric and make a custom color.  What a great concept!  You buy the shoe in white first, make sure it fits, and then send it back to get dyed.  Easy peasy.  





And certainly last, but not least, are the classic ivory shoes.  The first has a gorgeous Tiffany blue sole that gives a little peek-a-boo of "something blue."  The second is a glamorous Kate Spade with some gold heel bling.  





So, Holly darling, I hope this helps!  I can't wait to see what you choose and how gorgeous you look in them on your big day!

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because I hate to say "I told you so," but "I told you so about Juan Pablo being "The Bachelor."  Bleh.  He totally gives me the creeps, comes across as a complete jerk, and isn't handsome, not one bit.  I didn't watch this season because I was boycotting him.  I did, however, waste 2 hours of my life last night watching the finale.  I thought that he  completely embarrassed "The Bachelor" franchise last night by his nonsensical broken English way of sidestepping every single question Chris Harrison asked him.  My favorites are "I like you a lot.  Like a lot." "I feel fantastic about her. " "We give praise to ourselves."  and "I don't know what I'm looking at."  SAY WHAT?!  I hope that Nikki dumps him on his arrogant arse ASAP!  I don't know anything about the new Bachelorette and I'm thrilled about it!  Yay!  The boycott has lifted!  Sorry Mr. BMJ....

  1. You found so many gorgeous shoes!! I didn't watch the Bachelor. I have to choose between Housewives or Bachelor. I can't do both - it's too much garbage. :-)

  2. I love those shoes! What a great website, I love the Stuart Weitzman Peek-A-Bling Dyeable!

    Ew I know I hate Juan Pablo. I felt so sorry for Nikki, sitting in there buying into that "I like lots of things about you is even close to "I love you." I really wanted her to stand up for herself and say I deserve more, everyone else wanted to say it!
