Green shoes? Really?!?

The title of this blog post tends to be the response I hear most often when mentioning my predilection for wearing a nice bright pair of chartreuse coloured shoes on my wedding day.

Even my mom said "well, you've always liked doing things your own way"! But to be perfectly honest, the idea is not a new one, and it's not even all that unique anymore. Wearing colourful shoes on your wedding day is becoming quite the trend!

Check out these photos:


Oh fuschia, when DON'T you look good?


Orange would be beautiful at a fall wedding...


If red was one of my colours, I would definitely incorporate it into my shoes - so sexy!! pic found here


Love the turquoise peep toe with cute bow combo!

But these next lovelies, well....they shall be filed under "my true heart's desire" Such gorgeous shoes. The PERFECT shade of green. Seriously, I think I might swoon. Too bad my bank account feels the same way after sneaking a peek at the price tag. Oh Christian Louboutin, why do you tease me so?


My budget cringes at the mere mention of Monsieur Louboutin. Thus my search for a more palatable alternative begins. And you know what? Finding the perfect pair of chartreuse peep toe shoes is not as easy as it sounds. Crazy I know! If you happen to come across a pair, please do let me know :)

Ooh, I had just the same problems finding purple shoes and mere days before my shopping trip to the States (Priority #1: Wedding Shoes!) I also fell in love with a pair of Mr. Louboutin's creations. How funny! I still think that other options exist south of the border though... they have WAY better shopping than we do. I'll keep an eye out for green ones if you like.

Woohoo, I'm sure to find green shoes with extra people on the look out for me :)

So miss purple, the big question is, did you get the louboutin's? If so, you must post a link to the one's you purchased :)

Yes, the shoes which made my fiance's eyebrows shoot up higher than I've ever seen them are on their way to me. Hope they fit and of course I'll let you know. ;)

Found these and although the shade is slightly different, thought they were still darling: http://www.ninashoes.com/-(263)-Apple%20Green%20Luster%20Satin-(8299-8W8JFW).html

If not those, take a look at the rest of that site... I've only discovered it today but there are LOTS of amazing shoes!

I vote for Louboutins!!!!! I was looking for the red soles but the blue on chartreuse blew me away! Love it, love it, love it! Haha... I'm actually contemplating on buying a pair of CL flats (or low heeled ones) to wear during weddings. I just don't know how comfy they'll be.

What about Pradas? Have you checked them out? I think Miuccia's might be a couple hundred less than Msr Louboutin's creations... And they can be really comfy too...
