Barney-hued Shoes

I’m obsessed with all things purple. My wallet, ipod, laptop, cellphone, bathrobe and bedspread are all some shade of the vibrant hue (No wonder it’s my main wedding color!). When it came to choosing what to wear on my wedding day, there was no doubt in my mind purple would be featured somehow. Since Mami Boa almost had a heart attack at the mention of a grape colored gown, my feet is where I will be highlighting my favorite color. No ivory shoes for this gal!

Using recommendations from the Weddingbee boards for the best online shoe shopping sites, I stalked Zappos, DSW and endless hoping for the perfect shoe to pop up. I found a couple of incredible shoes all of which I wish I could buy, especially these:

This last shoe was exactly what I was looking for: purple stain with a little embellishment. Unfortunately, 5 inches is pretty tall even for a seasoned heel wearer. 8 hours in 5 inch heels would kill my little feet! I finally found the perfect shoe on endless a couple of days before Christmas: the Poetic License Spectacle. It has textured purple satin with the cutest little sparkly bow and only a 3.25 inch heel.

I traveled around the internet looking for a coupon because at $98, while not expensive (especially for something I get to wear over and over) it was more than I wanted to spend. It just so happened they were also being sold at Amazon, which I added to my weekly shoe stalking list, crossing my fingers for a sale. Last week the price dropped from $98 to $45 on Amazon and I instantly ordered them. After 3 days of viciously tracking my package online, my beauties arrived. They look even more beautiful in person and are surprisingly comfy. 

Wedding Shoes: CHECK! One more thing off the wedding to do list!

Will you be sporting colored shoes down the aisle? Heels or flats?
Did you also score a great deal when buying your wedding shoes?
