My Custom Made Wedding Shoes!

My beautiful and gifted friend, Lucia Roman offered to design me some wedding shoes and I'm not an idiot so of course I said yes! Lucia is our L.A.M.B. designer and is responsible for the designs of some of my favorite shoes in our companies history! She's crazy talented so I knew I was in good hands...She sketched up several options and we picked the four that we liked best. Those four were made into prototypes and then the winner was made for me to wear on my wedding day! This beautiful pearl encrusted bootie was perfect in every way.Thank you so much Lucia!!! I love […] Read More

Reality Check

Hi! I'm back!! Thank you for being patient with me while I took a little break to plan my wedding and marry the best guy ever! Here's a post I started writing back before things got crazy...   I posted a throwback picture on my Instagram a while back and was kind of caught off guard by the comments. People really reacted to what I wrote and I realized that I wanted to talk further about what I said. So this was the photo and caption- I don't know why I was surprised by all the comments from people saying that they were in that place in […] Read More

The Designer Wedding Shoes I DIDN’T Choose… And A Giveaway!

  Someone via Twitter suggested that I write this post and I just loved the idea! There are so many beautiful shoes out there that I love and that I may have bought if I didn't have the option to design my own. Here are some of my favorites...I may be biased (my company designs and manufactures Badgley Mischka shoes) but in my opinion, Badgley Mischka has some of the most beautiful bridal and special occasion shoes. If you look up "Wedding shoes" some of the most popoular ones come from Badgley Mischka. These first two shoes are great examples of beautiful bridal shoes. The […] Read More

Paging Dr. Hakakha!

This past Sunday, March 8th, was National Women's Day and the perfect day to honor an amazing woman with some of her patients and closest friends, celebrating the third edition of her popular book, Expecting 411. My future cousin-in-law, OB/GYN Dr. Michele Hakakha, MD, is a totally awesome rockstar doctor who just happens to have delivered the babies of some pretty famous (and beautiful!) moms. I got to meet some of them and we all bonded through our love of Michele. She is truly an incredible soul. And a total babe!  It was a great party and I got to hear some really great stories about motherhood […] Read More

The Perfect Wedding Shoes…

It's hard enough to find the perfect shoes for your wedding. You know... the biggest day of your life? But could you imagine trying to design them!? It sounds (and is!) amazing and fun, but it's also super intimidating. You know me as The Shoe Girl, my friends and family know me as a shoe obsessed girl, so the first thing people ask me isn't "what does your dress look like?" it's "OMG what SHOES are you going to wear!?" Sure, I could just buy a super fabulous pair but that would be too easy. Plus I feel like since I have the ability to […] Read More
