Ending My Wedding Shoe Search

As you may recall, I've ordered almost 10 different pairs of shoes from online shoe stores. Well, I've decided to call off my search and go with this pair-- Vaneli Madora in ivory.

{They look a lot cuter on than in this pic. I'll try to get a pic of me wearing them
and post it.}

They're "inspired" by Stuart Weitzman's Gigiritz {or was Stuart "inspired" by Vaneli? Hmm...}. While I would love to have these beauties, I don't want to pay $298 for them.
The Vaneli's cost me $78.75 {but now they're listed as $73.50. What the heck, Zappos?}.

I really wanted to find cute, blue shoes for my "something blue". But let's face it, with my 11 wide shoe size, and the ever-growing bunion on my right foot, that was going to be quite the accomplishment.

Sidebar: Most people don't know what a bunion really is. They just attribute it to old people because that's all you hear on TV {"Oh, my bunions are killin' me!"}.

A bunion is an enlargement of bone or tissue around the joint at the base of the big toe. The big toe may turn in toward the second toe, and the tissues surrounding the joint may be swollen and tender.

In my case, it's bone, not tissue. It's really painful, especially if I wear tight shoes. Yay, genetics! {My mom said, "You can thank your father for that." Oh, mom...} Since I currently don't have health insurance I just get to suffer through it until I marry Brad, get on his health insurance, and have surgery.

Thanks for letting me clear the bunion thing up. :)

So anyway, I've decided that these shoes are just fine. Plus, I only plan on having them on for pictures, the ceremony, cocktail hour, and the first part of the reception.

Then I'm switching to sandals!
