Wedding Belles

I get a ton of 'Holly in Heels, I need your advice!' emails--and it's really quite flattering! Keep 'em coming! I'll be the first to admit that I love shopping, and when I'm shopping for someone else (which doesn't require me to spend money for once!) I'm even more elated to offer my shoe-expertise! Most of the inquiries I receive are damsels in distress over none other than wedding shoes. Whether it's a mother-of-the-bride or a pretty little bridesmaid, or even just a regular ol' guest, everyone needs a bit of shoe guidance sometimes (lots of other things to think about when you're in a wedding after all!). With wedding season glaring upon us, it's time to toss out those old satiny b-maid habits and usher in some style to that wedded wardrobe. I had THEE hardest time narrowing it down to just a few lovely wedding shoe-picks, but I think you'll be quite happy with the selection--hey, it just might score ya a post-ceremony romance, who knows!
. . .

I was 100% delighted when I came across these simple but elegant Kenneth Cole Reaction 'Know Way' sandals! One fine t-strap leading up to layered straps around the ankle puts a fun spin on a classic bridesmaid shoe (at an easy $69 cost too!).
These BCBGMAXAZRIA 'Mirna' heels might cost ya more than the wedding gift you were planning on getting the bride & groom...but hey, you'll wear them more than once guaranteed (not like that bridesmaid dress guarantee every bride gives..."you'll wear this again, right?!"). Metallic & braided, these heels will give a special kick to any wedding outfit!

Similar in style the BP. Platinum 'Jet' Pump and the Enzo Angiolini 'Merryann' Pump are sparkled to perfection! Both are a great height for a long wedding night of dancing, toasting and celebrating (the Enzo's get great reviews too!). They're both so so close to these sparkly pumps I also reviewed a few months back, l-o-v-e.
Ooo, and check out these Jessica Bennett 'Marek' Sandals: strappy, retro-esque 3-inch heels that come in a handful of fantastic colors that are wedding-ready (I dig the Bronze).
And if it's comfort you're after, you'll arrive at the right place when you click on these shnazzy Naturalizer 'Princeton' T-strap Sandals that are perfect for afternoon or evening wedding gatherings. A low-key 2 1/4" heel is just your size when the partying gets tough (and the tough get partying!).
Ok ok ok, last one, I promise (unless you want me to keep going, 'cause I will!). Just in case you wanna mix it up with the wedding shoes, and be a bit more daring than normal wedding-wear protocol, make a purchase on these MAXSTUDIO 'Samosa' Sandals! Hurry, they're 50% off right now at Nordstrom.com and are ready to be tied around your gorgeous little ankles and paired up with something fancy!
Wow, gorgeous girl, you are ready to be one spicy little wedding belle!

xoxo,

  1. Thank you thank you thank you!
    I absolutely cannot get those BCBG's out of my head. And I am planning on wearing them in TWO of the FIVE weddings that I am in this summer, so might be worth the investment.
    Happy wedding season!

  5. I really love the Enzo's.. they're just so hot and sparkly, you'd be such a show off on the dance floor with them.

    I love all things weddings, and can't wait to get married.. I'm thinking red shoes with my white gown :)
