Tuesday Shoesday, Edition 89

March 18th, 2014

You know, I have been posting a lot of fun shoes lately. However, I haven’t posted many wedding shoes for all your engaged ladies. To be honest, I haven’t found anything new wedding-wise that has really sparked my interest. Until now…

Ivanka Trump Galant 2


I ran across these Ivanka Trump sling backs and knew I had to share. There aren’t many brides who don’t love a little sparkle! Snatch your pair up at!

I would be lying if I said that fringe didn’t remind me a little bit of my mom’s suede jacket from the early 90s. However, when done right, it can be so adorable! These Schutz Fiza heels do just that.



I am in love with these! You know, I really think I need a partnership with all of these shoe companies to support my addiction.

Fergie has great taste. I mean, just look at her husband! She is edgy and stylish. That is why I love these heels.



I love these because they can be paired with just about anything. A sleek pencil skirt, cute shorts, a fun, bright cocktail dress… Plus, I love ankle straps. Let’s face it. They make shoes more comfortable because your feet don’t slide around. Fergie got this one right! You can find these at Zappos!

Ok, these are a little out there, but I am just drawn to them. I can’t help but love a bright, happy shoe. Happy shoes, happy mood! These flats from Anne Klein at Zappos definitely fit the bill!



I feel like I need to be strolling along the boardwalk in these. I feel like they could come off a little “retiree,” but with the right outfit they would be oh so cute!

My search for flats continues! A girl needs more than 1 pair right? And who doesn’t love Michael Kors?



I love these ones because they are so versatile. Plus, they’ve got a little grip on the bottom, which is good for running up 3 flights of stairs to drag the groom and groomsman out of the theater! If you don’t like my color choice, have no fear. There are a ton of color options! Head over to and check them out!


Tuesday Shoesday, Edition 84

February 11th, 2014

I am in need of some new flats for wedding season. I love my heels, but let’s be honest… Running around the Mansion on a wedding day in heels is just not feasible. Enter, ugh, dare I say it, Crocs…


Ok, I admit that I vowed to never own a pair of Crocs in my life. But then I saw these. Super cute right? I can only imagine that they would be as comfortable as the other Crocs – you know since I have never even tried a pair on. They also kind of remind me of “jellies” from my childhood, so that is fun too. I might be putting in an order soon for my very own pair of Crocs (I found these ones at That sounds weird…

I absolutely LOVE this gown! I was browsing around on Etsy and knew it would be the perfect thing to feature on today’s blog! This gown from Retro Vintage Wedding is stunning and perfect for the bride looking for that vintage flair. And let’s just be honest, how amazing is the back of this dress?!?!

Ahhh… I am so glad to be back to window shopping. Honestly, after having a baby, I have barely looked at anything online besides baby stuff. Love my little guy, but this mama needs some me time! One of my best friends is getting married on December 28 this year. I am lucky enough to have been asked to be a a bridesmaid. I would do anything for her and to be asked to be such a huge part of her big day is such an honor. We have these gorgeous Dessy bridesmaids dresses in black:

Since her colors are black, white and silver, she has asked us to wear silver shoes. I found a couple of really cute pairs from Zappos and can’t decide. What do you think?

Who says mother of the bride dresses have to look old and matronly? I know that was the first thing my mom wanted to avoid when I was getting married. I happened to be checking out BHLDN‘s website and came across a few mother of the bride dresses and knew I had to share. Mom’s deserve to look good too! After all, if it wasn’t for her, you wouldn’t be here!



I love this one in particular because I think it is so fun and perfect for a mom who will break it down with the rest of the bridal party. And of course, it is one that she may actually wear again!! So it is a win-win!!

Yesterday, I had the privilege of heading out to grab a quick bite to eat and to Walnut Street for a quick stop at Ten Toes. I had a pretty full day of appointments, but had a small gap between and wanted to get out and enjoy a bit of the weather. I have been meaning to stop at Ten Toes for awhile now and am so glad I finally did! This shop is absolutely adorable and they are extremely accommodating and helpful from the moment you walk in. There is something about good customer service.

Now, on to the good stuff… the shoes! They have an awesome selection. I saw numerous pairs that I wanted for my collection and it took everything I had to hold back and not grab a few pairs up. They focus on getting in shoes that places like Macy’s and Nordstrom do not carry and nothing is over $100. So not only are they great to work with, but they are reasonably priced too!! If you are looking for a more traditional shoe or a dyeable shoe for your big day, they have a ton of styles to choose from. I can guarantee you won’t regret stopping by and checking it out! Here are two pictures that I stole from their Facebook page. These are adorable, right??
