…Get Fit With The Shoes!

You know I’m all about high heels and pretty little shoes.  However, if you’re looking to show off those legs of yours with a fabulous pair of heels on your wedding day (or any day!), consider getting these shoes which I guest blogged about this week on the Wishpot.com Wedding Blog

The Fit Flop from Victoria’s Secret:

Get a workout while you walk around. Engineered to engage muscles, lessen joint impact and absorb shock, these flip-flops burn calories and tone legs with every step.” – V.S.

Victorias Secret Patent Walkstar III flip flops 59 95

Reebok Easy Tone Shoes:

With built in balance pods, the Reebok EasyTone will help you firm and sculpt your legs and rear while you go about your busy day.  These balance pods create a naturally unstable platform as you walk, causing your muscles to activate and adapt.” – Reebok

With all of the running around and shopping brides do with wedding planning, shoes like these are the perfect way to get fit in time for your wedding day, even if you feel you don’t have the time to excersize.  Hot legs, nice butt?  These are great for any fabulous multi-tasking woman!

Badgley Mischka Bridal Shoes…

with one comment

…Surprisingly Achievable!

If you scroll through my blog, it’s no surprise I’m a sucker for adorable wedding shoes!  While I try to feature fairly affordable shoes, once in a while a designer pair calls my name and I just have to share.  No matter the price.  Because for me, at the end of the day, shoes are like art

Well, today I nearly fell off my chair when I found designer shoes that are not only hot, but modestly priced too!  Shoes by none other than the fabulous Badgley Mischka…who would have thought?  Take a look…

Badgley Mischka ‘Costa’ ~ currently $200 at Piperlime.com

Badgley Mischka ‘Chaz’ ~ currently $215 at Piperlime.com

Badgley Mischka ‘Caroline’ ~ currently $225 at Piperlime.com

badgley-mischka-caroline-225-00-piperlime

Ok, so I know they’re still a little expensive – but a lot less expensive than some other designer pairs which can run you anywhere from $500 – $1000 and up.  I’m impressed!  It’s a little easier to save around $200, than it is $1000, that’s for sure!  What could you cut back on to save a little extra dough if you absolutely had to have a pair?  Cigarettes?  Fast food?  Restaurants?  Fancy mocha-chocha-lata-ya-ya’s?  Hmm? 

Hey – I know, times are tough for most everyone right now.  I’m not trying to make you splurge on a pair of expensive wedding shoes.  I’m just pointing out some options for you!  

Still don’t want to spend that much on a pair of shoes?  I don’t blame you…it never hurts to shop around!  Visit Like.com to find shoes that are similar to the ones you love, but a lot more budget friendly.  Or, visit the Wedding Guide at Piperlime to find selections fit for most any budget.   Happy shopping!

…Heels Are Hot, Ouches Are Not!

More often than not, wearing a hot pair of heels for the first time can become very painful…especially when you’re in them all day and night!  I’ve recently come up with ideas on how to help prevent this pain, however it’s always nice to have a back up plan

Hugs & Kisses Bandages:
