Seeing as I’ve already got my wedding dress the next big thing for me is finding my perfect wedding shoes. And seeing as I’ve got my heart firmly hooked on the infamous Manolo Blahnik Hangisi, it’s going to be pretty tough to find any other competitors.
The Hangisi’s might be a similar price to my dress (oh yeah!) but that doesn’t stop me pining for them.
My wedding shoe of choice needs to transport my Bambi ankles down the Antiguan jetty to get married, will get kicked off to party in the sand and then allow me to party all night, twerking on the dance floor of our UK party.
Am I willing to kick a £700 pump into the sand without a care in the world? No. Although that attitude might soften after a couple of rum punches.
My only issue is that no other shoe I find can stand up against my Blahniks. And they need to ka-bosh them out the ring.
I’ve seen some cute floral pom pom ones from Aldo, which daintily tie round the ankles. The Horatio from KG By Kurt Geiger look deliciously Grecian. Jimmy Choo’s Fable with its delicate lace detailing has me swooning. Sophia Webster even named a pom-pom toed pair after me, Jojo. But none of them are pulling at my heart strings. And that’s what I need.
There are another pair – which I want to remain mysterious for now – that I have saved on my phone. They’re the opposite of bridal but right up my street. A big hit of tropical delight.
I think the first thing I need to do to conquer my Blahnik obsession is hot foot it to Harvey Nics to wrestle my size 5’s into a pair to see if I like them on. We’ll see what happens from there.
Wish me luck.
