I’ve been under the weather for the past 5 days now feeling incredibly sorry for myself. I’ve been watching reality TV and Hindi movies, and I feel like my brain has turned to mush. Much to the chagrin of J, I’ve now made him sick and we have been listlessly and pathetically mulling around our condo for way too long.
I have some post ideas in the works, but since I was feeling so sorry for myself, I decided to do what I love–search for designer shoes online and blog about it! Specifically, I decided to look for some designer footwear fit for a South Asian bride. Many people probably wouldn’t agree with me, but I truly believe that if you can afford it, your bridal shoes should be designer. And even if you can’t afford it, I think you could cut something out of your wedding budget–honestly, do you REALLY need that 5-tier cake that costs $700 that none of your guests will eat? OR do you REALLY need a pair of gorgeous Jimmy Choos that might cost as much as the cake, but you’ll have forever and ever and each time you wear them, you’ll feel fabulous?? What gives you a better return on your investment??
I don’t know about y’all, but I choose the Choos over cake any day.
As much as I love being Canadian, I do envy Americans for their plethora of designer shoe choices. Holy mackerel–Holts, David’s, and any Yorkville boutique shoe store do not measure up. I went searching on American department store sites, and below is a collection of my so-far favourite shoes. I tried to make a collage of the shoes, but it didn’t work out, so I have them posted one at a time!
The shoes below highlights some of my favourite gold and silver shoes–two metallics that will almost always go with our South Asian outfits.
And now for some fun options for bridal outfits, pre-wedding events, bridal showers and stagettes!
So, what’s your verdict–designer shoes or cake?
