Tuesday Shoesday: I Needed an Outlet :)

That about sums up how I feel right now.

As the title alludes to, I’M A LITTLE FREAKIN’ STRESSED. And it’s over a part of wedding planning that is not fun, at all. It’s stupid and logistical but absolutely has to be done. I’m talking about coordinating shuttle services to and from the venue from one of our booked hotels. Although this is my fault for assuming, I just thought the hotel [a big chain hotel, none the less] would have some sort of shuttle service to and from their hotel for big events. Well, as I found out today, I was VERY wrong with that assumption. They don’t offer any sort of shuttle service. At this point, I wasn’t too stressed because we had a back-up plan already. We were already in conversation with a limo company that was going to take the bridal party around Charleston for photos. I thought, “well, why not have them do the shuttle service too, kill two birds with one stone and still stay in budget?”  Once again, wrong in that assumption. It would cost like double our budget to do that, and trust me, we just don’t have the extra funds lying underneath our couch or in a rainy day fund. This brings me to my current panic-stricken and explicative-shouting position. I just don’t understand why we can’t book a limo for 2 hours for photos, then for an hour to pick guests up before the ceremony and an hour to pick them up after the reception. I just don’t get why we need to pay for the 7+ hours when no one is using it! But, I’m also not in the business and am just being a bit of a bridezilla. I’m sure there is a perfectly good explanation as to why this can’t happen. But right now? Entertain me friends, and just let me vent.

Since I’m fuming over here, I needed an outlet, and I needed it fast.  Thankfully, today is Tuesday Shoesday so an outlet was quite easy to find! [Thank you Neiman Marcus!] I’m feeling very extreme, obviously, so I found some gorgeous and couture pumps that are dashing, daring, sassy, sexy and very unique. These are definite Carrie Bradshaw pumps! What do you think, about the shoes and the shuttle?

Brian Atwood Studded Multicolor Cutout Pump
What do you think about this extravagant shoe? It kind of reminds me of a child’s outdoor play set, with all of the cut outs and colors! It’s a definite SJP pump, that’s for sure!

Tuesday Shoesday: Rockin’ NYE Pumps

Happy Tuesday Shoesday! I have a limited window of time, so I’m just going to share one gorgeous pair of shoes today. But don’t worry, I’m not skimping. These snazzy pumps are absolutely to-die-for. Although they are a bit high on the price spectrum [still less than Louboutins!], they are worth the extra change. If you need to validate the purchase, these shoes would be PERFECT for a rockin’ New Years Eve party. See, a reason to buy them! We all need new shoes for the New Year, right? These lovely Rock N Republic [I was SO excited to find that they now make shoes] pumps can be found at Neiman Marcus for $325.

I love everything about these shoes! The color, the bow, the mesh…So gorgeous!

Tuesday Shoesday: Tassels, Ruffles and Studs, Oh My!

Today’s #tuesdayshoesday is going to be very short and sweet because I found a shoe that demands the spotlight. At first glance, I was almost scared of this little bootie. It’s full of frills, tassels, ruffles and studs, which I love, but separately. However, at second glance, the shoe just seems to work. The best way I can compare it is how I feel when I’m looking at an abstract painting. At first, all I see are contrasting shapes, colors and lines. However, after a few more minutes of staring, all of the pieces that didn’t seem to fit before mesh together and I see a couple sitting on a chair looking out the window. All it took was a few minutes and now I’m in love with this formerly misunderstood little boot. I’m eager to know your opinions, do you love it or hate it?
