The Search of Wedding Shoes

First of all, I want to thank Mya from 4weddingku for writing a nice review and featuring my humble blog on her website for the Blog Review slot in June. I didn't realize this if not for fellow blogger friend Zara, who was kind enough to tell me. Now go give these ladies a big hug! Hehe.

Taken from 4weddingku

Now, back to the story.

I was totally inspired from Huda's post regarding custom made wedding shoes at Gavy. Upon reading her entry, I immediately went to its outlet in Maju Junction the next day, armed with 2 copies of my dream wedding shoes for reference. I dragged Johan along, because we'll be running errands the whole day and our first pit-stop was Gavy.

I didn't prepare much when I was there. I didn't call the guy who're we supposed to be dealing with beforehand and there were just a couple of SA at that time. I showed the girls the printed copy of the shoes that I'd like to have, the choice of color and material. Of course, they can make my dream shoes a reality and I was browsing their catalog for the material but none captured my eyes. I wanted red satin but they only have some kind of shiny PVC or glittery thingy material which is a NO-NO!  Then they told me that I can bring my own material if I don't like those that they have in store.

Now, here comes my favourite part which I was dying to tell you, the price. They quoted me RM160 for the workmanship only! Ok, expensive. Belum tambah lagi my own material, those big brooch for blings and stuff, the cost of it might be amounted to almost RM200. So not worth it. Johan even said it's expensive. Ditambah lagi dengan penat, minyak and everything, so I guess I just forgo the idea.

Dengan perasaan hampa, we went to Pavillion and I finally found a cheap red heels at Vincci+ for my wedding. It's only RM127. Haha. You know, anything cheap and pretty always brighten up my day. Theehee!

I love the huge diamante brooch and the material. It's red hot suede baby! Sangat smooth, ok. Geram! Geram! And it adds inches to my height. Yeay-ness. Johan doesn't like the idea of having peep-toe heels for wedding sebab nampak jari kaki, tak cantik. But I was too in love with this baby to let it go, after my unfortunate event at Gavy. Cewahhh!

Owh yeah, have I mentioned that I bought my nikah shoes almost a year ago? Yeah, too early, I know, but I can't help it. I'm not a fan of pointed heels but since it's for nikah, I want it to be proper and covered. It's from Elo in Subang Parade, priced at RM129 (no discount, damn!). Owh, I love the fact that the color compliments my jubah too.

Okay, the color and everything look fugly in the pictures but in real life, it's pretty! Now I have scattered diamonds on my shoes and jubah. Wheeeee!
