Something Blue

Happy long weekend, Fab Fashionistas!

Every bride needs something blue on their big day. For the wedding I found this gorgeous pair of Badgley Mischka Blue Pumps.


I  fell in love with Badgley Mischka when I was shopping for my wedding dress and saw the shoe display at House of Jon Lei Atelier.  BTW for brides in the DC area I highly recommend you schedule an appointment at this bridal atelier in the National Harbor. I actually did not get my dress at this shop but the consultant was amazing and instead of pressuring me to get a dress from them, she was actually the one that encouraged me to get my dress which I had already tried on at another store and kept comparing everything else to.

It was hard to choose a pair because Badgley Mischka has so many gorgeous shoes! Originally I was eyeing the pointed toe evening shoe but realistically I had to think about walking around in 4 inch heels all night and that just wasn’t gonna end well.

Because I’d be walking through the vineyards for the ceremony I was also concerned about my feels sinking into the grass. My officiant actually recommended these amazing heel protectors called Sole Mates and they worked like a charm!

I wore my heels all through the ceremony and most of the reception. The last hour or so of the night, my feet were starting to get tired but luckily I had flip flops available for all my guests so I just grabbed a pair from there, and it all worked out.


So my fellow Brides: What was or is going to be your something blue on the big day? Comment below or tweet your response to @SusieinstyleDC
