Statement Pieces | Manolo Hangisi heels

My Manolo Hangisi heels will always be very special to me because they were my wedding shoes. They are definitely an investment piece, but worth the price, I have been able to wear them a few times and I love the elegance and versatility of these shoes.  When I was shopping for the perfect bridal shoe there were three nonnegotiable criteria I was looking for and the Hangisi met all three:

First, they had to be some what comfortable.  There was no way I was going to be in pain standing up all night on the most important day of my life; although these shoes are not like walking on pillows, they were tolerable, and that was good enough for me.  I can wear these an entire night without any issues.

Second, I didn't want a white shoe. White is the "go to" color of course but I wanted something different. I considered having a pop of color  like the classic blue Carrie married Big in, which I really love; but ultimately chose this blush color because they matched the belt that went with my wedding dress and the flowers in my bouquet as well. *For details on my bridal look click here *

Third, I needed to be able to were them again. Originally  the idea was to wear my wedding shoes on anniversaries and date nights...  but I wear these every chance I get! Recently I wore them to an evening summer wedding and they were prefect, but they also are great for elevating a more casual look like the one I have here.

My dress is by All Saints and my head scarf is a Hermes twilly that was part of my wedding gift from my husband.
