Dear ESB: we're eloping... (part two)

Okay but srsly. Brandy doesn't have time for any of that crafty shit. She's eloping.

Messy bouffant. YES. Bubble veil. Why not?? (I don't even know what a bubble veil is.) Now all you need is pair of kick ass shoes.*

Here are the contenders:


The Prada Ruched Bootie, on sale for $239 at Barneys.



And the Mogil Pineapple Peep-toe Bootie, $245 at American Rag Online.

I'm feeling the booties. What can I say? I'm also in deep lust with these Loeffler Randalls, but they're $625.

*As long as you have great hair and great shoes, the rest of it doesn't matter.

  1. and here's where i vendor-hate* just a wee bit: SWEET CHRIST DON'T BUY SALE ITEMS FROM BARNEYS ONLINE. they suck at updating inventory, and if you need something on deadline you can get screwed. my husband got a pair of sale prada slacks that took two months to show up (they said at first after weeks of waiting that they didn't have any, then a pair materialized in a texas store weeks later).

    deep breaths. okay. carry on.

    *i hate because i love: barneys is the only department store i can handle on a regular basis, and co-op discounts are sick. buy in person, is what i'm saying.

  4. Brandy, if you do go with the fuchsia booties you've got some fuchsia earrings coming in the mail:

  5. I'm a sucker for chunkier shoes--and the whole getting married on grass leaves out the pointy heels. I also can't bring myself to spend over 200 on shoes--call me cheap!! So Miz Mooz are my new favourite shoe brand. these are my wedding shoes (Canadian $):

    But I love these for a retro look:

    OK, I may be getting influenced by living in hipster-ville.

  6. See I wouldn't have even thought about booties! I'm staring at those Loeffler Randalls drooling and then those Stellas..I have an unhealthy love of wedges.

    I know it's shitty of me to mention this now..but I'm in Canada so I think that means those fuschia ones are out. boo.

  7. Yikes. Not a lotta online shopping choices. Canadian Zappos sucks, and I happen to *know* you ladies have style. I had high hopes for Urban Outfitters (North America!)... There are a few options there if you decide to go the slouchy/punk rock route. I want these RIGHT NOW, but they may not say "wedding."

  11. Not to be a tomboy, but apparently TOMS has opened a wedding division of their One-for-One shoe campaign.
