Wedding Wednesday - which wedding shoes I am wearing and why I decided against the Hangisi model from Manolo Blahnik....













 .....

Hi guys, 
(post contains affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)
ever since I watched the first of the Sex and the City movies one since never went out of my mind. The moment Big revealed the perfect walk-in closet to Carrie and she put a pair of royal blue Manolo Blahnik Hangisi onto the shoe shelf. As I saw this pair I knew which shoes I wanted for my future marriage.

Now that the moment is here - and I couldn´t be happier about it - I am not so sure about this pair of shoes. I got two issues about them. The first and biggest is the price. They charge about 900 Euro for this pair of shoes. I know it is a Manolo Blahnik but it still is only satin and not even leather. Although I still love it. The second factor is I don´t think I want a blue pair of shoes to my dress cause I have a romantical fall theme for my wedding and the hues are orange and burgundy. First thought about it is pretty good cause you got some new and something blue in one pair of shoe. But I wanted a more elegant pair of shoes. I know that they are available in creme and nude and white hues but theses don´t have much of an appeal to me.

 So the search went on...

As I found a pretty similar pair for a fraction of the cost I gave it a try. They are from River Island (similar here and here) and cost about 70 Euros. The blue is exactly the same and the application on the tip is different but it is a bow made of rhinestones and who could resist a bow. When they came in I wasn´t sure about the sizing cause the size 37 was to tight on the front but fit in the lenght so I ordered a 38 and that was perfect on the front but there was way to much space in the shoe. I couldn´t take this one cause I needed a size inbetween and they don´t offer half sizes.

So I ordered three more pairs. And I had an eye on one in particular which I loved on the website and I loved for real and I took at the end. They are all true to size so order the size you always take.

But let´s first have a look at the other pairs. A white pair from Dune London (similar here) which is a pretty close dupe to the Hangisi model I think and I really liked it. It has this nice brooch on the top of the heel and it fit quite good (I was walking around in the house for about an hour in every shoe) but in my opinion it was a little to high to get through a whole wedding day. They are about 140 Euros.

The second pair I tried on was also white. A really bright white. It has a pointed toe and a band to wrap around your ankle and tie (similar here and here). I think this would be a really nice shoe for a short dress but if you got a long wedding dress like I do you won´t see much of it and it was also to tight on the front so my toes didn´t have any space at all. Again not my pair of shoes. They are about 50 Euros.

The final pair I took is beyond beautiful. So artistically and ornate and mine. The brand is called Menbur and the model Ceti. Menbur is a brand which makes evening shoes and bags and bridal shoes and bags. The specilized on this segment on the market. The shoe has kind of a champagne color and a lace cover up all over. It has apricot colored flowers and rhinestone applications on the tip and I couldn´t be more in love with a shoe at all. It has a pointed tip but not to tight and the heel is high as I like it but not sky high so you coulnd´t stay or stand a whole day in it. They are about 100 Euros.

What do you think of MY pair of shoes ? I have listed a bunch of others in the widget below.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. see you.
