I bow to....get it bow..vow...oh nevermind.

If I had oddles of money I would have a shoe closet that would make Carrie Bradshaw weep.

My feet fit into my Nanny's heels(and she only wore heels, even her slippers were heels!) around the age of 8 (size 5) and by age 12 I was in my mom's size 7's. Heels were something I was naturally comfortable in even though they often made me taller then most of the men around me. My sister is even better in heels, she's only 5'1" or so and could run in stripper heels if she needed to. Even though in recent years I haven't worn heels as much because I tend to work in offices with very laid back dress codes and now that I'm older the rest of my body seems to protest prolonged wearing of them.

There was no doubt in my mind that I would not be wearing flats at my wedding if I was wearing a shorter gown. I then got the vision of shoes with a giant bow in my head, so the hunt began.

My first stop was My Glass Slipper where I found endless beauties that fit the bill....
I don't know Stuart Weitzman(above) personally but I'd like to be his BFF, so he could give me shoes. I'd even take the shoes that didn't turn out right. Because that's what BFF's do.

These strappy deals are by Something Bleu. Although they are actually blanc.

Kate Spade. I'd like to take Kate Spade on a picnic, I'd steal her keys and then steal all her purses and shoes. She'd forgive me though because I pack a mean picnic basket.

I'm all sorts of in love with these Giusseppe Zanotti shoes, even if I did have to triple check the spelling of his name. That bow is so oragamic, see what I did there? Totally a play on words!

Badgley Mischka. I'd just call them Mark and James, even though I can pronounce Mischka.

I have such shoe lust right now, especially for those Giusseppe Zanotti ones.
