I have wide feet. Like REALLY wide feet. As in C or D wide feet. Plus, I have big man toes. I already have a lot of trouble finding shoes that fit so you can imagine trying to find elegant wedding shoes! Gah.

I originally wanted yellow shoes, but I couldn't find anything that was to my liking. Plus, I told my mom about maybe getting yellow shoes and she turned white. So then every time I would go shoe hunting in downtown Montreal for either green or blue shoes (for maybe my something blue), I would keep my mind open for anything that I could probably wear.

Seeing as our wedding is in April, it might be warm, it might be cold. However, I cannot wear heels if the toe part is closed. Its a recipe for blisters and much more pain later since I'm starting bunions. Eeek. I hate bunions.

I dropped by one of my favorite stores, Winners! It's basically a store which you can spend way too much time in scouring the racks of clothing, coffee, candles, dinnerware, shoes....ah the shoes! I hopped into the size 7.5 - 8 and ...I couldn't find anything. I was sad.

Then, I spotted an orphan shoe.

You see, lots of people who shop at Winners tend to try on one shoe and then put it back where it doesn't belong. Then you have a heck of a time trying to find it's twin.

So I find this orphan shoe in teal. Priced at 79.99$ it was a little out of my budget (I've never bought pretty shoes for more than 60.00$) It looked really nice, but in a size 8.5? Hah. It would never fit it would be way too big. I decided to try it on and *magic happened*. You have no idea how hard it is for me to find shoes that fit. It was such a sigh of relief to find what I was looking for for months! But wait...I have to find the other shoe...somewhere hidden in this gigantic store. *sob*

I kept the shoe and continued shopping around the store checking everywhere I possible could. I stopped by the gourmet foods/coffee beans to sniff the goodness and what do I find? THE SHOE! I grabbed it immediately and headed out the store ASAP. I did not want to regret this shopping find.

I showed the shoes to my mom a couple of days later. She was a little skeptical about the whole colored shoes thing at first, but thought that I "hit the nail on the head" with these shoes.

See what I mean by my man toes?!?!?!

Did you ever have the hardest time finding the right pair of shoes?
