I've Been Waitin' for a Shoe Like You

Previously, on Our Geeky Adventure:

-Choosing bridesmaids dresses has been way easier than finding shoes for me
-It's not that I'm picky, I just have high standards
-I thought I'd found a winner...but alas, it wasn't meant to be

Well folks, the search is finally over.  I've found and adorable pair of shoes that are juuuuuust right for the big day, AND they meet all the requirements:

-comfy enough to be worn all day
-no exposed toe
-contraption to keep them on my feet
-wedding colors
-way less than $60

Are you ready to see them?

 Aren't they adorable???!!!

They're this vibrant, jewel-toned purple suede, and like the red flats, they're not incredibly supportive, but they're way more substantial than the rubber was.  They have semi-flexible soles and lets face it- these things were made for dancing!  (Not literally- they're not strictly dance shoes.  I had considered a pair of Capezio character shoes to at least get the comfort part right...but then I got something better!)

However, they still need a liiiiiiittle something, just to push them over the "awesome" edge.

I picked up some silver wired ribbon on another rendezvous with the other man in my life and swapped it out for the shoelaces.  The ends are frayed, so I'll need to fix that- make my own shoelace tips- but I think they add just the right punch, don't you agree?

For those that are curious, I snagged these puppies at PLNDR, one of those many flash-sale sites that specializes in "street wear", and they often run $20-or-under sales.  Cha-ching!

So what do you think?  Aren't they adorable??

How long did it take you to find the perfect wedding shoes?  Would you consider wearing oxfords on your big day?

Much love,
The Geeks
