Comfortable Bridal Shoes 2014

 Something old,
something new,
something borrowed,
something blue,
and a silver sixpence in her shoe, which better darn well be comfortable…

    I love Simon Shoes. I bought my last pair of shoes there and can’t say enough nice things about their helpful and knowledgeable staff.

  2. Bette says:

    Wow! Love the Beautifeel Piper — how gorgeous. Beautifeel shoes are little works of art.

    Back when I could still wear heels, I swore by Amalfi by Rangoni. They’re still made in Italy of the finest leathers, and come in a variety of sizes and widths, including 10.5 C, which is almost impossible to find.

    Trotters Paulina is fabulous! Good selection, Kirsten! It it good to know that heels can be classy and comfortable.
