Before Mr Teaspoon and I were engaged, I had my heart set on some beautiful, expensive, sparkly, delicate blue shoes - also known as "something blue" by Manolo Blahnik just like Mrs Fro-yo:
Or even the Christian Louboutin:
However, after much discussion and trying on of the shoes I came to the harsh realisation that I am not the adept stilletto-walking expert that I believed myself to be. I was able to get from point A to point B but I wasn't able to DANCE! Sure, I could sashay from side to side in the shorts and top that I was wearing, but considering the weight of my dress and that by the time I was dancing I would have been in the heels for a considerable amount of time. Also, as you know those little pretties dont be coming cheap! So, with a heavy heart, I decided to put the designer shoes behind me and move on to greener (or bluer) pastures. I went to visit a store with specifically designed bridal shoes, where all of the shoes can be dyed!
I started with something without an embelishment:
but then the lure of the sparkly got me:
Dont be alarmed, I havent decided to forgo my blue shoes, I will just be purchasing these shoes and dying them the beautiful Royal Blue that I love!
The wise lady at the store did tell me to keep them in the ivory that I purchased them in so that I can decide to dye them after I see them under the dress! Before my first fitting I did for a very split second actually consider keeping them ivory, then I remembered how much I love the blue and simply couldnt resist! So, after my very soon 2nd fitting (where my hem is being adjusted) these bad boys are going to the smurfs!
Has anyone got any wisdom to share with me about dying shoes?
