Have I Lost my Head Over Heels?

I have a confession. As of right now, I have bought and returned over 6 pairs of wedding shoes. I just cannot seem to make up my mind!

It all started last October when we got engaged. The first thing on my list was the WEDDING DRESS. Like every other girl, I knew exactly what I wanted and was super excited to find it. I spent weeks dress shopping, and no luck. Finally, I decided to have it handmade {from scratch}! Expecting a 4-6 month timeline from my dressmaker, I was completely surprised when she called me just 4 WEEKS from our initial meeting to tell me it was time for my first fitting. She also instructed me to bring my wedding shoes with me so she could get the most accurate measurements.

WAIT! Bring my shoes?!? I had not even thought about bridal shoes, and I definitely had NO clue what I wanted! So, I quickly did some online research and fell head over heels in love with…

Shoe #1 {Nina Electra in Navy LusterSatin}: 

I brought these to my first fitting and all the girls ooohhh’d and aahhh’d as I strutted around the dressing room. 

But months later, I had second thoughts and purchased…

Shoe #2 {Me Too Jeanette in Royal BlueSatin}

My excitement for these shoes was short lived, and within a month I had already moved on to…


Shoe #3 {Christian Louboutin}


I actually did try these on, and for a brief moment thought to myself “when will I ever have an excuse to splurge on these ever again?” I grinned. I posed. I elbowed women in lesser, more sensible shoes out of the way to reach the mirror. And then I cried a little as I put them back.

Okay, moving on to…

Shoe #3 {Nina Forbes in Navy}

Peep toe pumps with a satin bow – heck yes! But then I started considering pink…

Shoe #4 {Nine West Pumps in Pink}

Then I decided that I do want my shoes to be my “something blue”…and purchased…

Shoe #5 {Nina Evelixa in Navy LusterSatin}

I just didn’t like these as much after a few days…

So after ALL that, I embarrassingly admit, I REPURCHASED Shoe #1 {Nina Electra in Navy LusterSatin}. 

Am I crazy?

    No, you are not crazy! I had a major dilemma over shoes as well. I ended up going with a Nina pair. All I have to say is thank goodness for Zappos with their free shipping and free return shipping!

    I wouldn't about being crazy…It's a big decision to make. I think they're all gorgeous, but I just adore the first (and last) pair!

    Great choice in the end! I thought the first one was the best anyway. Good luck with your wedding!
