I swore I wouldn’t wear heels at my wedding. I SWORE. I didn’t want to be any taller, I didn’t want to be uncomfortable, and I didn’t want to trip when I walked down the aisle or danced with my dad. But guess what?
JIMMY CHOOS AT THE RACK FOR $100. Beautiful, delicate off-white silk strappy delicious sandals with tiny brilliant rhinestone buckles. Somehow miraculously available in an elusive size 42, and marked down from $499. And in pristine condition. WHO CAN BLAME ME?
Now I’m going to be a walking/stumbling clichÃ© of all the stupid mistakes brides make.Â I’m going to trip and fall and twist my ankle; my heels will sink into the soft ground/carpet and get stuck or dirty; and when I inevitably get too uncomfortable and change into shorter comfier shoes at the reception, my dress is going to be too long.Â Alas… the things I do for, um, Choo.
Okay, so I tried walking in them a bit more thoroughly while trying on wedding dresses, and they’re totally manageable (at least for a short while). They’re keepers!

Not such a bad purchase after all! :-)
