Cinderella Moment: my wedding shoes!!

Let me Start this post off by saying that I am utterly exhausted! With the trips to and from Melbourne, early mornings at work, chiro appointments and now editing (yes it's been revealed to me) the Dat Girl website... I am just pooped!!! So much so that when I picked up a package at work on Monday, I didn't even rip it open..or get excited...

 Nope, it sat on my desk for a good 3 hours before I decided to take a peek...

Inside the package were the shoes that I will wear when I walk down the aisle to A!!

Remember I bought these shoes a while ago but they were too small and didn't have enough support?

Well I gave up the shoe hunt for a while, occasionally searching for pink wedding shoes, and then I came across these beauties by Badgley Mischka.


They looked like a perfect kind of pink, and soft and pretty, just like my dress.

Unfortunately, the Randee shoe is a few seasons old and wherever I looked no one had them in stock in the pink :(

I thought I wouldn't be able to get them, until I decided to do an eBay search and BAM there they were, size 9 (I'm usually an 8.5, but minor details), new in box with all plastic and cardboard bits attached. The seller didn't send items outside of the US, but I could handle that.

from the eBay listing

I thought about the purchase for a while, then the next day I went to place my bid, only to see the auction had ended. More sad faces!!! :( :( :(

Luckily, everyone else "forgot to bid" too and the item was re listed.. 7 days later I won the auction. Fate.

The shoes were sent to my US address and then to me.

They fit PERFECTLY, and are so soft and delicate, I think they are just beautiful!


The little bit of a platform will be a godsend on the big day and the bottom of the shoe is almost the same colour as the BM dresses here too.

I'd show you the picture of them on my feet, but I am waaaaay over due for a pedicure, so you will have to settle for the above bride's feet.

It felt like my very own Cinderella moment, when I slipped these babies on and I am glad I kept trying to find the perfect shoes! :)

  5. Love them! I am thinking of getting Badgley Mischka shoes for my wedding too. I've seen so many that I actually like on shopbop. Are they comfortable?

    1. They are comfortable because of the little platform and the sole of the shoe is so soft. They really are a beautiful brand of shoe.

    1. I have a US shipping address, which is great for whenever I want to get things shipped from US stores that don't ship internationally. I have mine from myus.com, the postage isn't cheap but it has been really helpful for a bunch of wedding things!
