woo freakin hooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!
i''ll try to quicken my long story of how i got my kate spade keeden pumps in cobalt blue!!!!
I fell in love with them months ago when Freke posted them in a thread... then she said they were discontinued. sob. I STALKED KS wedsite to see if they may return... and they did. I talked my FI into them, and by the time I went to order them, my size was sold out (within 24 hours).. SOB SOB. My FI reassures me that i will find wonderful shoes for the wedding. (However my requirements were as follows: closed toe (January Colorado wedding-duh). Pretty blue. 3 inch heel. Some sort of bow. No rhinestones.) FI also convinces me that 300$ is a lot to spend on shoes. (men?). I tell him that Im wearing couture Amsale and it would be blasphemous to wear anything else. So at the begging of last week I noticed they were once again back. I came home on Monday night and notice his wallet sitting next to his laptop and this is odd, b/c he doesn''t pay anything online like that, it''s all automatic. I log on to our bank web site into our joint checking account and see a purchase from KS. They finally got here yesterday and it was a horrible week, b/c Paul was trying to surprise me, so I didn''t let on that I knew.
sorry so long, but that is how I got my Kate Spade PERFECT shoes.

So let me get this straight:

1) You have a beautiful Amsale dress
2) You have the perfect pair of Kate Spade blue shoes to go with said dress
3) Your fiance bought you said shoes to go with said dress as a surprise

You are my hero. Or actually, your fiance is my hero.


Well done.

Hahahahhaaa!! That was exactly what I was thinking while reading Sugarjo''s post!!!

I would add that Sugarjo did well by picking him as the husband-to-be.
Smart woman!

I want these shoes so badly that it hurts. I am so jealous of you!

Congrats on your beautiful shoes, beautiful dress, and really awesome fiance.

I wish mine understood stuff like designer bags, shoes, and clothing. Someday...

Yay! We''re shoe twins! Although I''m not wearing them for my wedding. When you posted last time that KS had them again I bought them almost immediately on my dad''s card (after a short debate with him in my head) and I''m SO GLAD I DID. Worth ALL of his wrath. Lol.

They are gorgeous. Congrats on getting them!!!! And what a wonderful FI you have!!!!!!!!!!!!

A huge ditto to that. My husband would sh** himself if I bought shoes that cost that much...let alone buy them for me himself!

But he is giving me 2k to upgrade my stone...so I cant rag on him to much!


But those shoes are to die for!


What a sweet man you have!

Shoe Triplets. I bought those to wear with my wedding gown. I love them so much. They were my 6th or 7th pair of wedding shoes, but the final ones.
