Got the wedding shoes

So a few months ago the fiance and I decided to hit South Coast Plaza here in the OC to look at some jewelry stores and start the search for HIS wedding ring.  But really, I was also looking at the trip as an opportunity to browse for my wedding day shoes as I had been looking online and in shops and malls for a couple months and had not found anything that jumped out at me.

I knew I wanted something unique, different and red...I was looking for a deep cranberry red but only found one simple pair of nice heels in that color and I was not doing flips over them.  So I mentioned to the fiance that I wanted to check out some shops in South Coast for my shoes as well.  He said he guaranteed I would find something at Nordstroms so we went in there before heading into the main mall.

I browsed the shoe department and found a super cute pair in purple that I thought would have been perfect for my dress because they had a rose on the toe that would have matched the flowers on my dress.  But purple was obviously the wrong color...though I later found out that I could have bought them in red online. 

Didn't matter though, because the fiance was not feeling them.

Didn't find anything in the shoe department so decided to just walk down the clearance aisles on our way out of the store for fun...and there in my big ole size 10 shoe section was a pair of gorgeous red shoes just sticking out like a sore thumb...but in a good way.  :)  I put them on and they felt comfortable, sturdy and still sexy and unique...and the fiance was loving them.  Plus, they were 1/3 of the price of the other shoes I really liked...can't beat a bargain deal!  So here they are:

Those are REALLY cute! And you can totally wear them again after the wedding. I love the idea of colored shoes under a white dress. I'm wearing blue shoes as my something blue :)
