Wedding Attire Talk

No, I am not getting married! No, I am not engaged! But.....I do have an opinion...come on, you know's me we are talking about. I always have an opinion. Here it is....

Brides spend ooo-goodles of money on a dress that you WILL NEVER wear again and then when it comes to shoes, most are like who cares, you aren't going to see my feet much anyway. Well, here are my thoughts. When it comes to budgeting for wedding attire, spend 20% of your attire budget on dress and 80% on your SHOES!!!

So when my day comes, it'll be...hello David's Bridal $99 dress sale, and HELLO Christian Louboutin(see above picture), Manolo, or Jimmy Choo! Face it, we all want a fancy pair of ridiculously expensive shoes, who wants a ridiculously expensive dress you can only look at hanging in the closet taking up space!! You can always remember the day that started your journey when you slip on your special shoes...because, if they have red bottoms then they are SPECIAL!!

Think about it like this: Wedding versus Marriage

A wedding is one day and you will wear that dress once, and most likely will be out of style in the coming years. A marriage is suppose to last a lifetime, and that's a lot of miles you will be trekking with your intended. Make your feet look pretty with shoes that never go out of style!!

I won't lie...I have already looked at shoes...looking at dresses before engagement is bad luck...but there is no harm in looking at shoes....

Christian Louboutin: Sparkly Prefection or the I love you, but I love the shoes more (Not really, but maybe just a little) or the We could be best friends for life ...the one's I would love and cherish forever and forever, and may wear to bed every night are pictured above (Yes, SATC 2 ones).

My favorite Jimmy Choo's : Sparkly black, Sparkly Silver Ankle Strap, Strappy and metallic..oh my and best and most expensive for last

ManoLO LO LO : The ever famous "Something Blue" in the Manhattan closet or the "Someone took my shoes", "She made us take our shoes off at the door" shoes

And lest we not forget Prada- "I've taken a LOVA"

With all that said, is it "Diamonds are a girls best friend", or is it "a designer pair of shoes are a girls best friend"!

There is only one Vegas

So peeps...we need to have a talk. I need to get a pet peeve off my sleeve. Once upon a time, a really drunk, fun person that loved to gamble decided to build a place called Las Vegas...there is no other place like it, despite others' efforts. There will never be another place like it, and most certainly every town across America, will not ever be Las Vegas. (Okay not sure how Vegas was started, but I like my theory...and hats off to the person that created Vegas, because I am pretty sure without it, my favorite game, Craps, would not Cheers!! See you again soon, I promise!) Back to my point, I get really tired, annoyed, and kind of like "Dude/Dudette you aren't as cool as you think you are" when people take the first letter of their city of choice (whether it be where they grew up, went to college, live now, or just might be going to for a weekend) and attach "Vegas" to the end of it. Oh, you know these people, and the facebook era has increased this usage, because of status updates people ACTUALLY think we care what they are doing, and think they should up their cool factor (which they aren't) by throwing in, "Heading to G'Vegas this weekend" or "Don't you wish you were here in Val'Vegas". (okay I know the last one is more than the first letter, but this is for Valdosta, Ga, I've heard this one alot, and have held my tongue this long) Hey Dip you have gambling, do you serve drinks while I roll dice, are your bars/clubs/restaurants open 24 hrs a day, can you buy a Louis Vuitton and a hooker on the same city block, do you have caged lions, do you have a water fountain show (and no I don't mean the token city drunk peeing in the town square fountain), do you have BETTE MIDLER...since you can't say yes to any of the questions, please NEVER SAY (insert letter here)'VEGAS ever again! Please and Thank you!
