Karolina Embellished Evening Shoe: Badgley Mischka

Soaring at 4-3/4 inches high, Badgley-Mischka’s Karolina is our hands-down favorite platform peep-toe right now. Why? Because it looks as good approaching as it does sashaying away (thanks to that gorgeous jeweled heel detail!), and because the sturdy covered platform lends support where we need it most. Happy shoe shopping, loves!

Selina-Sophia Webster1Selina: Sophia Webster

Yes this knockout ivory sandal from Sophia Webster features a stunning embroidered swirl detail. And yes, it also boasts beaded embellishment and a stacked-bead heel we love. But our favorite thing about the whimsical Selina? Oh…that’d be the  and “Wifey for Lifey” message embedded on the soles of each perfect pair. Now that, love, is a bridal shoe!
