same but different

One of the local designers was at the museum yesterday. We have been emailing back and forth as she recorded the tv program about the show for me an I am still hoping to get my hands on it. While she was there she snuck this picture through the window of my dress....
Working alot these days. Post are gonna be pretty pathetic. Sorry.

A friend just found this and told me about it. Apparently this is what my dress looks like at the museum!
Wish I could see it.
Started working on this years, but it is going to slowly!

Shoe porn post!
I'm going to need some AWESOME funky shoes for my wedding (yes this is a billion years in the future but I can still plan ahead.) So it is time to start hunting.
My current fix is Fluevogs. I only own 2 pairs but they are so comfy and well made I'm hooked. I love that they don't follow trends so they never go out of style. I love that it is a Canadian shoe designer who is known all over the world!
SO here are my thoughts on the current selection:

these are a great shape for a wedding - but not my wedding - think sand. They are a fabulous color too.

these are a great shape for my wedding and the sand - I know not quite - work with me here - but they only come in black. POOP!

these are a great color and sand shape but not really for my wedding...

Sigh. I think he is going to have to design a shoe specially for me. That's the only solution.

And these:

are the ones I bought on sale this weekend! LOVE THEM!!!
