Something Blue

OK just a quick post about something I just found in case I have any brides reading my blog. When I was planning the wedding I wanted blue shoes as my something blue, but I needed shoes that weren't so tall because I didn't want to be taller than my hubs. Well my search ended because all the shoes that were less than 2 inches tall in blue looked like something an elderly lady would wear.

Well I am sure if you haven't been living under a rock you have seen the Something Blue Manolo Blahnik's that were featured in the 'Sex and the City" movie. I think in the movie Carrie says they are only $500, but I think after the movie the price went up to $945 (and that was the moment you heard brides' hearts breaking all across the world). This may be old news to some ladies, but I thought I would share anyway.

Here is the orginial. Image from

And here are the look-a-likes by Martinez Valero.

Looks pretty good to me! And the price of $159 sounds much better than $945. However, I am sure that the Manolos are much more comfortable than these, but I am wondering if it would be manageable after you crowd the shoe with all the foot pads.

Anyway, while I was browsing I also found some super cute shoes that a bride (or anyone for that matter) would love.

All of the above images are from I think the yellow ones are my favorite!

I love colored shoes because it adds a little character to the outfit. I don't have many colored heels, but I do have lots of colored flats. Do you wear colored shoes? Do you find them easy to style with your outfits?

The yellow are my favorite, too. Is there something about being married that makes you forever see shoes in a bridal setting? Maybe it's because it can be *so* hard to find that right pair.
