.manolo blahnik.


It was a really exciting night last night on so many levels.  Not only are my favorite people visiting me right now from the city, but TL, and us went out bowling last night at this place called strikes in EG.  It was actually really fun... and we were out super late.  When we got back we were just sitting around chatting and I brought up how I really want to wear the Blue SATC shoes when I get married.  The girls and I were still chatting about them when TL walked into a room with a big pink bag with a big white bow.  I saw the "footcandy" symbol, and knew instantly it was a pair of shoes from my favorite Walnut Creek shoe boutique.  I ripped it open and saw the most beautiful shoes I have ever seen.  The girls and I all started screaming so loud.  They couldn't believe it either!  It means so much to me because he knew how bad I wanted those shoes.  I melted when I saw them on the big screen.  TL is so thoughtful.  
People may think its super tacky to wear blue shoes with a white dress, but the thing is, I really love those shoes - and why do I have to be soo traditional?  I have never owned a pair of Manolos before, and for my first pair ever, they are perfect!  So - as I walk down the isle- some people may think... why is she wearing those shoes?  But when I walk down the isle, I will be so touched because not only are they my most favorite pair of shoes in the whole world, but they mean so much because they are from TL himself - and they will be the shoes I take my first steps in as Mrs. TL.

Thank you so much for commenting on my blog!

These are so beautful and great for the "something blue". I remember that I was pondering if someone would wear them to her wedding when I posted about these a while ago. I guess now I can say that someone has!

I LOVE those shoes, but sadly they are too tall for my dress (I bought a sample so I am limited to 3" heels), but I am definitely wearing blue shoes! I think it is fantastic!

I wore blue heels on my wedding day last year, and everyone loved them! And yours are made even more special because of the story behind them. Have a wonderful wedding!
