Hello Lover!

The night I got engaged was such a magical time.  I remember it like it was yesterday.  My best friend was probably just as excited as me.  She knew it was a day that I was dreaming of for so long and she was so sweet to offer to buy me my wedding shoes.  A few months later, I came across the perfect pair, the Manolo Blahnik Jeweled Satin d'Orsay.  I emailed her immediately and told her I found the one.  She probably thought I was crazy, because as generous as her offer was to buy me my shoes, I'm sure she didn't anticipate buying me $700 ones!  I'm not sure how the exact conversation went, but I'm sure she asked me "if I was out of my mind?!"


I had my heart set on the Manolos, and I think the shoe god's were watching, because they pointed me to Zappos.  There, I found these.  I'd like to introduce you to my Mocknolo Blahnik's.  Beautiful, aren't they?  And if you didn't know any better, they totally look like the real deal.  And better yet, they were only a fraction of the price.  I called my bestie to let her know and less than a week later they were mine.



To this day I still love these shoes, so much that I wear them around the house.  I plan on wearing them for our 2nd wedding anniversary, which isn't until next March, but it'll be here before I know it.  Thanks Jo!!!  You're the best.  But you already know that.

Love, S

Your best friend sounds SO sweet--what a special thing to buy your wedding shoes. And those are fantastic, of course! Can't believe you found them for 1/7 of the price! You should let Erika at Cafe Fashionista know for the series she does on "copycat" pieces!

I love you and your shoe obsession... because I've got one myself. Pretty much all of the Manolo D'Orsays make my mouth water... I particularly loved a pair of zebra prints I ran across a few years ago. Wish they weren't so damn expensive! For now I just bide my time with some Steve Maddens until I can afford to recklessly blow my money on bigger game. :-)

I love the coloured shoes with the wedding dress! These are beautiful, I'm glad you were able to find them for less! I've always said I wanted to wear Louboutins for my wedding, but I'll probably not have the cash!! lol
