FedEx: The Dream Maker and Heart Breaker

Two weeks ago I made a crazy decision; I bought my wedding shoes. I didn't just buy any wedding shoes, I bought my dream wedding shoes (well, they aren't my absolute dream shoes because they're not blue but they're pretty damn close!). Late last week the FedEx man delivered them to me at my office. Louboutin, it's nice to finally meet you:



Christian Louboutin Bow T Dorcet in Gold

The upside: They're classic and all kinds of fabulous. Not only will they look amazing with my wedding dress but these will be amazing with a pair of black capri pants, jeans and a white blazer, a hot little date night dress, the possibilities are truly endless. The best part, I bought them for 40% OFF from BarneysNewYork.com.

The downside: I bought them online which means I didn't try them on first. Unfortunately, they are about a half size too small. Normally, I would happily allow my feet to suffer, cramp up and blister all in the name of beautiful shoes, but because they're peep toes everyone will be able to see the ridiculousness that happens when big feet meet small shoes. Damn, but I was thisclose to perfection!



When I first pulled them out of the box and crammed my feet in, I tried to convince myself that they would fit (I kept thinking that for a few days actually) but they are just too small. I don't want these shoes only for one day, I want them for the rest of my life. Also, if I'm going to drop this much on amazing shoes, they should be perfect; and that includes a perfect fit.

Who needs a spray tan? I do, I do!

So now I'm either going to take them back to the Barney's in San Francisco or try to sell them on E-Bay and maybe sell them for more than I bought them for (they were 40% OFF!) Then I'll be back at square one: searching for the perfect wedding shoes, maybe the Barney's in the city has a perfect pair of blue Loubies just waiting for me to buy them... :) A girl can dream!

Have you made a wedding purchase and tried to convince yourself that it was perfect, even though it really wasn't? Le sigh.

What a bummer! I hope you find some others that you like even better! Lately, I’ve been having some silly, for-no-good-reason second-thoughts about my dress. Sigh…

i totally talked about my shoes today!

i bought them online too but I went to the store first and tried on multiple pairs from that brand (i couldn't find that exact shoes) so I had a better idea. maybe that will help next time?

Ugh, that's such a bummer! I was scared this was going to happen with my shoes, but thankfully Nordstrom has a customer service line specifically to deal with European sizing. I think you should totally be able to recoup your money on ebay - those shoes are beautiful! Good luck!

Oh no! They're gorgeous! I don't think they look bad on your feet. But you don't want to suffer on your wedding day.

No chance of exchanging them, huh? Bummer. I feel ya...I thought I would never find shoes I was happy with, but it will happen. Just give yourself time :) They are fabulous though! And I need some tanning help, too lately!
