It is with a heavy heart that I must report these amazing shoes I ordered off Amazon.com will not be my wedding shoes.
|RIP Rainbow glittery shoes, I hardly knew ye.|
The Amazon package was on my doorstep when I arrived home from work yesterday, and I tore into it in a flash. When I first laid my eyes upon them, I fell in instant love. They are seriously sooo pretty, you guys. SO PRETTY.
And then, tragedy.
I put them on and did the walking test. First, I noticed they were too big. The slingback kept slinging off. Then I caught myself in the mirror. You know how baby giraffes walk just after they’re born? Yeah, that was me in these shoes. I’ve been a girl for 32 years and I still can’t seem to accept the fact that I can’t walk in heels higher than an inch. Thirdly, I noticed that after just walking around in these heels for five minutes that my toes REALLY EFFING HURT!!!!
Sure, I could return them and get a small size. Sure, I could spend the next 6 months practicing walking around the apartment in three inch heels, building up a tolerance to wedged-in toes.
Or, I could return these and continue the search for a more practical and equally dazzling pair of shoes for my wedding day.
I sent an inquiry to Figgie Shoes and I’m crossing my fingers for a reasonable price. I read about Figgie Shoes on Offbeat Bride long before I became engaged, and I haven’t been able to shake their fabulousness.

I am picturing some pink roses, maybe a castle with fireworks, some swarvoski crystals, and an image of Walter or two?
What do you think of my shoe tragedy, dear friends? Should I bite the bullet and keep the rainbow sparkle shoes? Or was this a blessing in disguise, pointing me towards my Figgie Shoes?
