Darlings, there is no denying that one’s wedding day is a time to ensure that you sparkle in all of your pre-wedding bliss; showering your many admirers with a glow that radiates from the top of your head to the tips of your toes, dispelling a certain je ne sais quoi about your person that makes those around you gasp in envy. But sometimes, the very thing that creates such a feeling is not the gown itself; rather, it is the sassy shoes upon one’s feet – the precise object that, quite frequently, goes unnoticed due to sweeping, floor-length frocks.
In the words of Levende Waters, “Funny that a pair of really nice shoes makes us feel good in our heads – at the extreme opposite end of our bodies.” Luckily for you, my loves, with the fall and winter 2010 trends of short hemlines for wedding dresses one has the opportunity to show off their fabulous shoes and glorious gams all at the very same time.
Non, non, non! Do not get me wrong; gowns that reach the ground are glamorous in their Old Hollywood way. But as someone who clocks in at a staggering five-foot-one in bare feet (and is also ever so slightly obsessed with shoes), I myself find that the shorter hemlines are far more figure flattering. Besides, there’s no question that the girls of Mad Men or Sex and the City would highly approve. After all, a trailing Galina Signature Organza A-Line Gown with Angled Draped Pick-Ups may make you feel like a modern version of Grace Kelly; but a knee-grazing Galina Short Dress Featuring 3D Floral Appliqués allows you to not only show off your flirty frock, but the High Heel Sandal with Rhinestone Anklet that you spent hours selecting, as well!
As the saying goes, “A pair of shoes can change your life. Just ask Cinderella.” The question is, kitty cats…will you be flaunting your fabuleux footwear with a high-hemlined dress; or will you stick to the traditional style of long, flowing frocks come your time to say “I do”?
