hey you! i'm talking to you!

An open letter to all shoe designer and/or manufacturers:

Hi, my name is Morgan. I'm a bride-to-be. I just chose my wedding colors and I'm real excited. All I think about is yellow and gray. I immediately went online to start e-filing some shoe options so I could go back to them from time to time and make a decision closer to the wedding. The only restrictions I have are a) I really want yellow shoes (fun right?!) and b) not a huge heel. (I'm 5'11 after all....)
You can accomodate right?
WRONG.
You suck. All of you.

Let's start with you Zappos.
You have 6 options. SIX. What the eff is that? And when these are your options...
Ugly #1

Ugly #2

Hellishly Ugly #3

Boring #4
....you want to bang your head on the table (which I may or may not have done).

Oh, and you Piperlime?
NO YELLOW SHOES???? Not one.

You're dead to me.

Ya'll better get your shit together. ASAP. This could get ugly.

Signed,
Your Worst Nightmare

I'm in a much happier place on my guest

Have you considered buying a beautiful pair of shoes that you can dye to be the perfect shade of yellow? Just a suggestion...good luck!

Maybe if you wait closer to the spring you'll have more options, I'm sure this time of year yellow shoes aren't in high demand. Just keep looking, you'll find something!

you're preaching to the choir here...

i've been on a mission for yellow pumps since i first saw the loubie ones on gaga a looooong time ago.

every yellow show SUCKS. bah!

have you seen the suede ones from UO? they're cute but they kinda look like the first ones so nevermind.

good luck.

i bet the first ones could be cute if you tried them on!

Lindsay said...

Cute yellow shoes must be really hard to find! You could always do gray shoes and add a yellow embellishment if you never find anything. Good luck. I'll keep my eyes out for you!

I had blue shoes for my wedding and ended up having them dyed. I loved them! 1.you can pick your shade and style 2. you can add a toe clip or flower if you'd like 3. they were soo comfortable. I had fallen in love with a pair in a magazine I could not locate anywhere, so I made them!! An option for sure! xo

I insist on being consulted on the yellow wedding show purchase...this is dicey in my opinion. Perhaps the universe is trying to tell you something!?

Maggie said...

*shoe purchase that is

Yellow and Gray very pretty. =)

have you checked endless.com ? they usually have lots of options. you'll hopefully have better luck with the spring styles come out.

Padgett Hoke said...

hahaha! loved that! why is it that when you actually want something specific - like a really cute yellow shoe - its impossible to find. had you not been looking you would have encountered a bazzilion of them! I will keep my eyes out for some!

Katy Mary said...

I hear you on the heel height thing! Nina Shoes (who I just noticed has an ad on your blog) lets you design your own and choose the colors http://ninashoes.com/design-your-own-shoes they also have about 5 cute pairs of yellow. It's hard though, so so so hard. I would go Department Store, Nordstroms, Saks...

Katy Mary said...

Oh it was a google ad how weird that it showed up the brand I was suggesting lol

Holly said...

must wait till spring and summer shoes are released! but finding a hot sexy shoe that isnt 3.5inches and up will be impossible. this 5'10 bride to be has decided against the loubs for a flat sandle. SIGH.

Deals, Steals and Heels said...

have you checked endless.com?? you can do all the sorts, color, heel height etc...maybe more options than zappos? good luck!!

~KS said...

WIN to your wedding colors..... so you. I love it.

But EPIC FAIL to those shittastic shoes. Gross. Barf.

Kinsey Michaels said...

haha this post is hilarious Morgan!
sorry about the shoes!! i actually don't HATE the first pair. if i had to pick between the ones you showed, it would be that one since they have more of a mustard hue. but i hear ya. hopefully you find a much cuter option!

Jen said...

Whoa ugly shoes! I don't blame you for being frustrated. The one piece of advice I can offer is to wait until February. Stores will be rolling out their spring lines, and yellow is sure to be more readily featured.

Good luck!

Danna and Kirk said...

This is seriously funny!

I love your wedding colors and sorry about the ugly shoes!

Good luck!

Amanda said...

i had a lot of trouble finding shoes too! i orignally wanted pink ones but couldnt find any in the perfect peachy-pink color to match, i though about dyeing some (which my be a good option for you) but i changed my mind to white anyway and then i only found one pair i liked, all i wanted were some high peep-toe pumps...how could that be so hard to find?

Poppy said...

HAHA this post was too funny! I hope you find some cute yellow shoes, I'm scared for those around you if you don't.
