the universe owes me shoes


Dear Slightly Buzzed Fairy Godmother,

I'm getting hitched. And it blew up in my face. I wanted 75 people -- we're pushing 200. I wanted a backyard BBQ -- we're having a formal sit down dinner. I wanted to get married in the evening to beat the summer heat -- we'll be saying our vows at 3pm. I wanted a lot of things that aren't panning out -- such is life. It's easy to blame everyone else, but the truth is, while if I could go back and do it again -- I would have fought a lot hard for what I wanted. ​I didn't though, and this is how it is... and I'm going to suck it up. Everyone else being happy will make me happy. 

However, shoes. I feel like the universe owes me a fucking awesome pair of shoes for the amount of shit I've put up for the last year. I'm low maintenance. I have my standard items and stick by them. And I live in Vans -- which I plan on changing into when dancing starts. But I want a pair of killer floral heels for my most put together day.

I'm in love with these [pictured above]. In my mind, they're as perfect as a floral print gets. But I ordered them and just seriously too high- 6 inches. I can walk in them but I'm worried I'll break my ankle before the day is over. Could you help me find something similar? Preferable a floral print with a chunky heel. 

Thanks so much!

Those look like hooker shoes, sorta. Teenybopper hooker shoes.

I much prefer these Marais wedges.........................................


Is the liberty print too cutesy?


(You could always go with fancy Vans instead.)

  1. I'm not huge on the Liberty print. What about these Seychelles wedges?

  3. I like the tiny hooker shoes. BUT. 6" platforms are asking a lot coordination-wise. Especially on a day when you might have some nerves.

    What about these floral platforms from Nasty Gal?

    1. Those looked good to me too until I noticed the 5.5" heel height :(

      I think ESB has the winners. And I'm 110% in favor of those glorious fancy Vans, but there's also fancy high-tops and fancy flats.

    2. These might be the wedding vans, actually. Who knew NASTYGAL was worth shopping for shoes?

  4. These These may be a little crazy, but I like them. The Seychelles from above are still my first pick, though.

    1. I came here just to post those shoes. I own them and they are less crazy/more awesome in real life too. At 4" with a 1" platform I actually find them very comfortable to walk in! And I normally stick to around 2.5" heels at MOST. Great chunky heel.
