OMG Shoes 8

wedding-shoe-benjamin-walk-3.jpgSimple yet sexy, this pair of Touch Ups by Benjamin Walk shoes exemplify the feeling most brides want to achieve.

The satin fabric can be dyed to nearly any color and the 2 1/4 heel isn’t tall enough to make you totter, but offers a nice elongated leg.

I’d wear these, and I just may. I just need to decide… white, cream, blush or my wedding color?

wedding-shoe-benjamin-walk-2.jpgI don’t know why, but these shoes scream “There She Is, Miss America…” and not in a good way.

Is it the crystal accents?

the weird petaled heel?

I’m not really sure, but the only dress this Benjamin Walk shoe works with is a pageant gown.

wedding-shoe-pink.jpgStrange yet sexy, these shoes by PINK have that 1950’s pin-up girl look with a subtle grown-up feel to them. With the right dress, these babies could really rock.

Think sweetheart neckline, boning at the waistline and a Russian netting hat.

Or, maybe even just a simple shift dress and a bun. What are your thoughts?

(p.s. you can find them and some other supercute styles by searching for Pink by Paradox — I just can’t seem to find their site)

wedding-shoe-blue-tux-2.jpg Now, these shoes are more like it. I know that Blue Tux sells shoes with the tagline, “Good for more than a one night stand.”

Crafty… are they talking about the shoes or you…? Hmmm

Anyway, these shoes are actually manageable. The heel isn’t over-the-top at a mere 2 1/4 inches, the heel will give you support and the chris-cross pattern peek-a-boo pattern is supportive yet sexy (ugh, sounds like a bra!). The cool thing is that most Blue Tux shoes come in a white or blush color and they are dyeable! Woo hoo. This one goes onto my short list.

wedding-shoe-colorful-creation-3.jpg An homage to jelly shoes.

These shoes are playful and interesting. I couldn’t possibly wear them to my wedding, even though they’d dig up my playful side in their design reminscent of jelly shoes.

Side note: do YOU remember digging in the bins of jelly shoes at your local discount retailer when you were young? I must have had a dozen pair at one time… they’d make your feet sweat and blister and leave dirt tracks where skin was exposed, leaving a pattern of clean skin chris-crossed through the dirt.

They’re fun, but they aren’t the shoes I’d like to wear on my walk “down the aisle.”

wedding-shoes-colonial.jpgOh My Gawd — Shoes.

I am at a loss of words. These shoes were found on a search for “wedding shoes.” I can picture them on that cheesy 1980s actress, Elvira before I can picture them with a wedding dress.

I guess if I were goth, the rhinestone-studded heel MIGHT compliment my dress — but even the goth chicks I know would avoid these aweful shoes.

wedding-shoe-alisha-hill.jpg Now these Alisha Hill “bridal” shoes fit into the strip club variety. Clear plastic? I got espadrilles once with a clear plastic section over my toes.

You’re supposed to feel sexy at your wedding, and visible sweat condensation from you toes isn’t sexy. And the heel? Come on.

wedding-shoe-joan-and-david-250.jpgI love shoes. I have a collection of summer shoes that I swap out with my winter shoes, because my poor closet just can’t hold more than 30 pair at a time.

So naturally, I start to look for wedding shoes LONG before I’m married. Heck, I even have a pair from Zara that I got while shopping on Union Square, San Francisco earlier this month, which I choose for my wedding (alas, the color is too dark to go with a wedding dress).

I spent a good chunk of the day looking up shoes. I found a lot of dyeable shoes, most of which looked like they belong in 1992 or a strip club. Check out my parade (and commentary) of the good, bad and ugly wedding shoes.

These Joan and David shoes are okay — I dig the kitten heel and the shape, but the dots may be a bit too weird for a wedding. What do you think?

OMG Kelly — have you seen this video?

Before I start in on my discussion of wedding shoes… grab some shoes.
