Shoes - glorious shoes!

I think Duosheng could be my new best friend. Sure the shoes are made in China which means that buying from them isn't doing our economy any favours... but hey, it's only one pair of shoes - and they are cheap!

I have ordered this style of shoe, with a 2 inch heel:

But have asked for them to be made in a yellow.. which will hopefully be similar to this:

They will be custom made to my size AND they are only cost AU$90 including postage.

They may come out terrible or fluoro yellow or something but hell, it's worth giving them a shot!

My Terrible Realisation

I have just come to a dreadful realisation – I don’t think I can wear a veil for the wedding :’(

My dress is being made by my soon to be mother in law and is inspired by the very beautiful ‘Maya’ wedding dress pictured below. I’m hoping also to team this with a yellow bow around my waist and yellow shoes.

The thing is I just don’t know if I could pull off a veil with this dress which has me a little heart-broken because since we started planning I’ve always just assumed I’d have a lovely flowing veil.

I guess on the upside though I’ll get to wear a funky polka dot dress – I think that wins over a veil any day!
