Wedding Shoes...

Wedding Shoes

My ideal wedding shoe was white with a peeptoe, a bow on the tip, not a sling back and not made with satin. These shoes, as it turns out, are really hard to find.

After scouring the internet, and an incident that we won't discuss where I lost the perfect shoes, I finally gave in and went shoe shopping with Ellen and Astin.

I did find them, but the store we were in only had the display shoes left (and they were yucky). The store attendants were not the slightest bit phased with helping me though, and after making me call another store (they weren't going to call for me) and giving me the wrong product code for the shoe, we finally made a break through.
Another store had my shoe, in my size and it was the last in stock.

Since I was actually going to be going in the complete opposite direction to that store, Ellen and Astin offered to get them for me. I met up with Ellen for dinner a few weeks ago and she handed over the bag. I put them on as soon as I got home and they are perfect.


Thank you so much Ellen and Astin for picking up my wedding shoes, I love them :)

Now to practice walking in them...

  4. Ah I love Forever New but as you say, most of the sales assistants are sadly lacking. When I worked in retail I'd never dream of asking a customer to phone the stores themselves. Where is the service?!! I've also been gobsmacked in a lot of stores lately when they've written down the number and got me to call myself. Hello what is the store phone for then???

    Glad you finally got the shoes! :)
