So, you may remember from This Post all of the difficulties I had finding cute wedding shoes.
My dress is ivory, and in order to not need extra length, my heels had to be shorter than 2" high (well that, and the fact that I'm already 6 ft. tall barefoot). Add in the fact that it's an outdoor ceremony and wedges will keep me from sinking into the ground, my options were VERY limited. I knew I wanted some sort of heel, just because it makes me feel feminine and put-together. I also knew I wanted them to be appropriate for our black-tie affair. And have SOMETHING to do with our accent color: coral.
Here is the original:
White satin, not a very stable ankle strap, disgusting grosgrain ribbon behind brooch.
I mean, it's a cute shoe, just needed some work!
So here they are with some embellishing:
I dyed them ivory and added pearls behind the brooch after cutting off that ribbon.
Then, instead of the strap, I have 3 satin ribbons: ivory, coral, light pink.
The wedges have been decorated with a light pink sparkle
They are just the perfect little secret!
