bouquets for your feet

yes, there are sock marks on my feet. please ignore those. you don't see them ok? ;)

but aren't these some fabulous little flowers?! I picked them out at b.poetic's etsy shop. They're the niftiest shoes clips that are expertly made with vintage fabrics and can fit onto just about any shoes you can dream up. I picked out these particular blue satin ballet flats (only $28 bucks at the dessy group!) for our upcoming wedding. well, actually we've decided to elope (!) but that's another story altogether which I will be sure to share another day...

blue for tradition, flats for comfort as i refuse to be uncomfortable on what should be one of the best days of one's life, eh? i had to try them out when they came in the mail and was very happy with the result of my thriftiness. i'll admit, i pranced around in them a bit before i took these pictures for you and put them safely away in their shoe bag until our trip. stay tuned for the dress...i have a vintage pattern but first i've got to try and see if i can make it work..fingers crossed!

Right now, as I am checking out your blog, I am actually working on my own fabric flowers! Thought that was a little crazy, so I had to share. I'll be posting pics of mine on my blog tomorrow. Too funny.

what a coincidence, great minds think alike :) I'll be sure to check them out!

rachael—it took me forever to find blue flats that i liked! i kept seeing ones that were all sold out or too small (i have freakishly large feet, lol).
i think i saw some blue shoes on the header for your other blog right?? love them!
