Blue Shoe Blues

So I know you probably thought that after all of that shoe blogging I had made up my mind, purchased a pair and was breaking them in as we speak, right? Wrong. Shoe decision fail.

I know there was a lot of support for the Tiffany blue vintage scalloped shoes from Hey Lady, and my little blogettes, you have rich taste. I can't see dropping the dough on these puppies, and I'm also not sure if they are "in-you-face-blue" (or is that "blue-in-the face?") enough for me.

Cue the "design-your-own" section at Nina shoes - what joy it is to mix different colors for hours. Bows, heels, tops and soles all in a rainbow of shades.  Here are a few of my creations... 

Unfortunately they take three weeks to arrive, and what if they don't fit? No returns on custom shoes, besides who else would even consider the orange and blue catastrophe above?

Thoughts? Suggestions? and don't you try to pressure me into the fancy shoes, I might be too easily persuaded and my poor abused credit card will have to pay, literally.


  1. I love the first white peep toes or the last white pair... I think a white shoe with a blue accent is very elegant and still makes a statement! If you'd rather have a totally blue shoe, blue with the white bow is really great, too! Just my personal opinion, but you always make great fashion decisions, so I'm not worried! :)


  2. Ha ha...until you called the ones with the orange a "catastrophe," I was totally ready to comment that the decision was super-obvious. To be clear, I don't think I have TERRIBLE taste...just taste that's very different from yours. :)

  3. Personally I love the orange and blue ones - I was just bracing myself for the jeers. I don't think our taste is that different.

  4. Abbey,
    Love the first shoe with the peep toe and the bling will go nicely with the your superblingy earrings. Also I love the pumps with the slightly askew bow ... in all the colors you've provided. And why orange? Do you have orange elsewhere in your wedding? You would be beautiful in any shoe. Still in love with the Tiffany shoe of previous blog.
