Finding the Glass Slipper!

March 30, 2008

Yesterday I spent part of the day walking up and down and up and down and up and down the aisles of ginormous shoe stores in New York looking for the perfect wedding shoe. I have to find something before my next dress fitting (April 19th) so I’m kind of under the gun πŸ™‚

Since we’re getting married outside and I’m not much of a high heels kind of girl I’m looking at ballet flats – silver, powder blue, or powder pink. I tried on a few contenders but none of them were quite it. I’m going to surf on Zappos a little this afternoon and other sites and hopefully I can find something!

Anyone have any other ideas for places I can look??


Two kind blog readers gave me recommendations and I think we’ve hit the jackpot πŸ™‚

I’m going to stop by FS/NY this weekend when I’m in NYC.

I also cruised around on Piper Lime – thank you Emily and Sandy!!


they better be cute and stylish or I will be so pissed. Wait I am not shooting your wedding ! LOL
Buy 2 pairs, one cute as all get out and one more comfy. Let me shoot your cute as all get out pair pretty please

comfort is good…but cute, comfy and stylish is even better.
have fun on your shoe quest!

By way of introduction, I’m Jessica, one of Krista’s clients (wedding in June, hence the weddingbee stalking). I’ve definitely been a reader on orchardcove for the past few months– I love kids, and your work always makes me smile =)

I was on an endless shoe search for ballet flats and scoured the websites forever! I just past this store called Zigi on Broadway and Bleeker and got the cutest flats-they have a bunch to choose from and the store is fun. I went to fs/ny to and they’re having a big sale too! good luck! ! excellent return policy, kind of like zappos =)
