|WHO FITS THE SHOE|
'What have you done? I look like a little witch!' My dress in a cursing green colour with a black velours coat wouldn't misfit a gothic party.
My 6:30 alarm saves me from this nightmare and I yoga it out of my system. I guess with all the wedding prep in which I find myself, my unconscious is now really making twirls. Two weeks to go and so much stuff to do....
But we have made some steps in the right direction. With a handsome brown WE suit for my man, with simple eco chic jewellery and with some Triumph lingerie. The biggest challenge was the shoe issue, because hunting eco wedding shoes is a real challenge. For M.A., I envisaged smart Veja sneakers or Osklen fish skin, but Italian made leather shoes will do the dancing job as well. For me (and my shoe size), white shoes are a total no go, so I opted for Swarovski inspired Havaianas while in Brazil. Friends told me that they hand out custom made Havaianas to the wedding guests at Brazilian weddings. The ladies are only too glad to swab their heels with these unique flipflops when it's time to dance. But even these Havaianas were white and I just felt like having more of a shoe for my party. Happily I stumbled upon Melissa's new Sapatilha Campana. They're made with recycled plastic and last for a lifetime which sounds pretty sustainable to me. Unfortunately, I am not the only one deciding on shoes that will be invisible underneath layers of white. Mum and designer friend had a say and agreed that plastic shoes at a wedding are not an option. So I am still on a quest for my perfect eco ballerinas....
