The end of another fab day Autumn location shooting with children... William 24/10/15
Fashionable? or comfortable? these may be questions that you find you ask yourself when looking for a new pair of shoes - personally I always go for the pretty over the practical which leaves me feeling great but my feet feeling slightly neglected (and covered in plasters). As much as you want to feel comfortable on your wedding day, don't let this factor deprive you of those amazing, jaw-dropping, mouth-watering, heart-racing (you get it) shoes. After all, if the shoes you have your heart set on aren't going to allow you to boogie the night away without going through a box of plasters and painkillers, it is merely an ingenious excuse to buy not one but TWO pairs of shoes that you NEED! One pair for the ceremony one pair for dancing - say it after me "I don't want them I NEED them!". Wedding shoes should never under any circumstance be a last minute, can't be bothered to look, throw anything on that sort of goes with the dress type of shoe. Wedding shoes should always be the can't really afford them, they cost more than my mortgage but they're the most beautiful things I've ever laid my eyes on type of shoe.
From classy to quirky. From stiletto to kitten. From bold statement court shoes to sparkling peep toes. The list of potential wedding shoe is on-going but keep in mind when choosing your fabulous footwear that if your dress is heavily detailed or a huge statement in itself, your shoes should complement the dress and therefore be more on the simplistic but exquisite side.
If you take anything from this blog post let it be this - if you're sat at home thinking "do I buy the shoes? or don't I buy the shoes?" the answer should always be - buy the shoes.
Lavish or loopy - whatever your opinion on rapper Kanye West and reality star Kim Kardashian's big day, there is no denying that it may well be the most unforgettable (and expensive) wedding of the year. The wedding has been the focus of media attention since the couple sparked controversy in April when they appeared on the cover of high-end fashion magazine Vogue. As Kim K is one of the most photographed women of a selfie generation, worldwide Kimye fans eagerly awaited the reveal of her wedding dress - and it didn't disappoint! Both Kim and Kanye were kitted out in Givenchy but Kim stole the show in a flattering, delicately laced, traditional white dress that accentuated her infamous bootylicious body; topped off with sheer lace sleeves and a beautifully elegant train - there was a touch of class throughout her look.
Kim is the perfect example of 'less is more' - regarding dress detail rather than skin coverage (for once). Although fashion is an evolving industry, a vintage style lace dress is a timeless classic and Kim successfully proved that! It is important to remember as a bride-to-be that YOU want to be the statement of your big day as well your dress! Therefore it should flatter your figure without going OTT (e.g. enhance the booty, don't flash it). Deliciously delicate detail combined with stylish slick hair and natural make up creates the perfect combo of effortlessly beautiful meets on-trend vintage princess. If you want to add a splash of colour, try bright shoes (navy/ cerise pink are my personal faves for this look) and/or a bold flower arrangement. Overall a huge KimyeS! from me.
