Why my $400+ wedding shoes got replaced by some $50 ones :)

Some of you may have read about my wedding shoe splurge earlier this year ~ my gorgeous Cole Haanâ€™s!
It was love at first sight I tell ya, and when I read that they came with Nike Air technology for added comfort I was sold. Well to my surprise, Tommy actually wasnâ€™t mortified by my outrageously high purchase â€¦hmmm although he did ask if the shoes came with a $400 check, hehehe bastard, lol. But really, he was fine with it and said if thatâ€™s what I wanted for our wedding day then it was all good.
Ok so hereâ€™s the kicker â€¦. Those mother F$%kers hurt and were NOT comfortable at all. That damn Nike Air technology was for the birds and I couldnâ€™t fathom spending that much money on shoes that did not feel good on my feet. So with much dismay they went straight back to Nordstroms -- ok well actually I kept em for about 3 months in hopes they would suddenly feel good because they were so freaking pretty, but they never did, so back they went. *sigh*
In the meantime I ended up finding these fabulous Pierre Dumas shoes at Piperlime.com (pics below) â€“ (FYI I just ordered them in gold and silver too because cute gold/silver shoes that donâ€™t look ghetto cheap are hard to find, lol!)

I love the shoes you ended up wearing on your wedding day! The pop of colour looks great under the dress!

***Designer lines and high price tags don't automatically mean they're better ~ so for those brides on budgets, don't feel like your "cheap find or steal" isn't as great as other items with a flashy name and outrageous price tag. I'm such a proponent of blending styles and fashion of all levels ~ some of my best ensembles consist of a Target dress, $100 sandals and $2 earrings Go with what makes you feel beautiful and I say, if it's cheaper, then even better!!!
