Did I really say "now for the fun"!! Who knew there was so many different shades of cream/beige/taupe. I have been on a further mission in search of the ideal shoe to compliment the outfit. Let me just use a little understatement when I say it has not been a happy or easy task. In the end I came home with three.....yes I said three pairs of shoes today and scarily I have ordered another two pairs online in the desperate hope that one of these pairs will be the ONE. Then of course comes the next step of finding the bag to match the shoes. At this point, I am thinking some little jeweled trifle not necessarily "matching".
As far as the bling is concerned, I was thinking pearls - something chunky - and bought a multi-stringed choker but it just wasn't me - and a little too 90's/Knot's Landing. (I know what I am talking about!!) Hence the option selected in the photo.
On our mission to the States on Monday to find the bride some shoes, we were, I am pleased to report, successful. However she opted for a brown satin pair that will get future wear. We decided that a little bit dressy, a bit of height (she is quite a bit shorter than the groom) and of course comfort where far more important than having a pair of sparkly/frumpy shoes....just because.
Whilst in the shoe shop, I came across another woman of a certain age (i.e. mine) frantically trying on gold strappy sandals. "Wedding?" I asked. "Yes my daughter's ....on SATURDAY!!" and she marched off with several pairs under her arm - apparently there are several different shades of gold as well. I must say I felt a bit better after the encounter..even if just because I wasn't doing this task with days to spare!
Just so you know, I am thinking the cream pumps (centre) are in top spot at the moment.
