THINGS I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER SAY...

I am having my dream city hall wedding dress made (thanks to Miss Jill),  even though it is being made with less than dreamy fabric. I truly could not afford the prices out there for French lace, seriously, the laces I coveted were all over $100. The mid-range laces were a bit better budget wise but they didn't move me enough to warrant spending more than I did. I found what I believe to be a nice 'faux' French lace in a perfectly creamy color and I am hoping in photographs no one will notice that I couldn't afford the 'real' deal. I realized today that I need to find some shoes to go with this dress, shoes that are appropriate for a city hall length dress. I can't imagine wearing white shoes, or even off-white shoes, I am having a hard time wrapping my head around what that would even look like (I am having horrible 80's flashbacks white pumps and all). This is the part where I can't believe I am even saying this to someone other than myself.  The other day Lindsay Lohan was wearing the most darling shoes to court. Yes, Lindsay Lohan.  I loved the vintage inspired Mary Jane style and the peep-toe, they were quietly sexy.  I haven't been able to find anything similar and my last cry for help was gratefully answered with many a link and email so I am throwing it out there. It seems I don't have an affinity for wedding attire sleuthing, skinny jeans and budget Anthro inspired blouse shopping is another thing . Everything I seem to like cost more than my rent and well, that's not an option. So my dears where in the world can I find a shoe like Lilo's? Oh gosh, I have truly gone over the deep end....

The Kate Spade Kea Mary Jane pumps are really cute and come in a variety of colours (red!)

I think my previous comment was eaten...so I apologize if this ends up being doubled.

These are my favorite find but also very expensive. At least you can wear them after the big day too!

These are more reasonable options in the budget department:

Most wedding things, I can't speak to, having never been married. But shoes?? Shoes I can help with. You're looking for a T-strap pump.

If you're open to a shade of brown in that same style (versus off white):

I'm almost positive these are the shoes Ms. Lohan is wearing. I instantly recognized them because I bought them earlier this summer (but later returned them).
