Speaking of Shoes....

....I finally purchased a pair to wear in MK's wedding!  The shoes with the bow that were my favorite were no longer available :( 

(I love you j.crew shoe that i wanted so desperately!)
So, I continued to hunt and came across another J. Crew heel that I liked almost as much!!  I found this heel on ebay, and it was MUCH less than on J. Crew's site, of course.  So, the shoes I will be wearing for MK's wedding are:
(J. Crew Fleur Suede Pump)
They look fabulous with the rich eggplant color of the bridesmaid's dresses.  The dress fits wonderfully, and I'm most excited for October 17 to get here!!!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On a not so exciting note....
I tried on the bridesmaid's dress for WIMP's wedding as well.  It is the exact same size as the dress for MK's wedding, but made by a different company.  Apparently it is a company that doesn't believe in letting people breathe while wearing their frocks.  Let me just tell you....IT TOOK BOTH GIRLS TO GET ME INTO THIS DRESS!!!!!!!  Whatever am I going to do?  The wedding is September 19 (2 weeks away) and I can't fit into the dress.  Gaahhh!  So, I've embarked upon a starvation diet.  Yesterday was my first day.  I didn't eat all day.  I then decided to go out for cocktails.  Bad idea. Today I had to have a little bit of breakfast so that I could function.  But that's all I've had.  I'm going to try desperately to lose 5-8lbs. in order to fit COMFORTABLY into this dress on September 19.  I know it's a stupid idea, and not healthy at all, but I don't know what else to do:(
Please say a prayer for me!

P.S. When I look at this blog in "Edit Posts" it's spaced beautifully and is easy to read.  When I post it blogger screws it all up and squished it together.  I am NOT a fan of blogger these days!!!!

Love the shoes! Maybe you can have the dress taken out some? I was in a wedding where I bought the dress in the fall and by the next summer I had gained like 12-15 pounds (in my defense, when I got fitted for the dress, I was going through a really bad break up and wasn't eating AT ALL)! So I took it to the alteration lady at the bridal shop and she was able to let it out a few inches right at the zipper. It fit so much better after that!

Oh and she was able to do it 24 hours before the wedding! Since I live in CA and the wedding was in GA, the weekend I flew home was the first time I had tried on the dress since ordering it!! Yikes!

I was so scared I wouldn't be able to fit into it, but they worked wonders there! Try it - it's better than starving yourself :)

I just wore an eggplant color dress and my yellow J.Crew shoes today!!! Love the color combo...

I hear you with the dress. I had a bridesmaid dress taken in and tried it on on a Wednesday. Fit perfect. Then the monthly visitor came on Friday and the dress no longer fit my chest. All of the pictures are so embarrassing because I am literally popping out.

Don't eat any carbs for 2 weeks. At all. Weight will come off...

I think I love the "replacement" shoes more than the first ones! Good luck with the dress -- I'd think you could have it taken out a little in 2 weeks time.
