I'm a brat. I went shoe shopping for Meg.
She says she doesn't need a new pair of shoes. She says she's happy to get married in the silver heels she already owns. But I detected a hint of something wistful in this post.
It's very A Practical Wedding not to buy new shoes. Very. But there is something undeniably fabulous about slipping on a new pair of shoes the day you get married. A kick-ass pair. A pair you will wear again and again with all the lovely vintage cocktail dresses in your closet.
So for you, Meg. A few ideas just in case.
First up, the Lawrence from Nine West in natural, on sale for $59.99. (Thanks kidchamp!) These bring a vintage-inspired wedding dress into the modern.
Next, Spirit (okay, seriously barfy name) by Cynthia Rowley in black satin, on sale at 6pm.com for $115.00. A classic. And a sensible 3" high. I have to say I like the look of the black heels in the Vogue shoot pictured above.
And finally, the pink Open Toe Pump from Marc by Marc Jacobs, on sale at shopbop.com for $192.50. More ladylike. More... Meggy? But, again, the angular heel adds a modern touch. I think this pair has just the right "Bite me. I'm a feminist and I'm wearing pink pumps." vibe.*
*Meg, what the eff are your wedding colors anyway? Do we even have this information? Or are such things as wedding colors too silly for you to bother with?
