Case in point: my wedding shoes.
A few weeks ago, I found myself browsing Endless.com in search of nothing, really. I was probably looking for shoe inspiration or a good deal, maybe both. And what I found was Butter, a whole lot of it. I'd heard of Butter before, the shoe line that was cute and comfortable but I never thought much of it. How could anything marketed as comfortable actually be cute?
And then my inner magpie caught a glimpse of the Cruz Peep Toe pump in gold glitter. And with just a few clicks of the mouse, the lovely Cruz was mine.
Feeling a little unsure of the ruching detail on the Cruz, I picked up the Cleo in gold glitter too.
By this point, I thought "hmm, I might need some color." So I picked up the Season d'Orsay pump in "bleu," to round out my sparkly trio.
Suddenly, I began to feel the little pangs of remorse in the pit of my stomach. Three pairs of shoes? THREE pairs of GLITTERED shoes?! Maybe I was going overboard...so I snatched up a pair of the Club peep toed pumps in gold leather. Hooray for self control!
And just a few short days later, these gorgeous shoes were mine. They were soft, comfortable, and expertly handmade in Italy. Seriously, if you want a pair of gorgeous shoes that you could conceivably wear for 8 hours without wincing once--Butter is the way to go.
I persuaded myself to return all but one. I'm not sure if I will wear them on our wedding day, but they are the current pick. See? Even a crazy shoe fiend like myself can have moments of clarity. I couldn't imagine myself wearing the glittered shoes on my wedding day, and even though I wanted to keep a pair because they were so incredibly gorgeous, I had to say goodbye.
But all it took was a moment of weakness and a good internet connection and poof! Shoemageddon 2011, delivered straight to my doorstep.
Have you found your wedding shoes yet? Did you shop for them online or in person?
