Vera Wang Wedding Dresses

I really really really like Vera Wang Wedding Dresses.  I’m not even really sure what it is about her style that appeals so much, especially because I’m suspicious that you need to be a small-breasted waif to look any good in her dresses, and “small-breasted” or a “waif” are words that will never be attached to my name. You’ll probably need to have a boob reduction to look any good in any of them, but hey, needs must, right?  Too bad if your hubbie complains on your wedding night – the point is, DAMN you looked great in your wedding dress!

Then there’s the added appeal that you can’t buy them in the UK (at least to my knowledge), and so, being human, it makes me want them more.

So I’m now on the hunt for a European version of Vera Wang.  Not because I’m ever likely to buy a Vera Wang gown, but because it’s a matter of principle – we, in this continent of fashion leadership, simply must have a VeraWangesque designer.  I’ll keep you posted if anybody shows up.

Bridal Shoes for Wide Feet

I have fat feet because, well, both of my parents have fat feet.  While other women shop for shoes on their ‘fat’ days, I opt for other diversions, like handbags, or books, or looking longingly at shoes for the Slender Footed.

So imagine my pleasure when I discovered that Rainbow Shoes have come up with a special +Fit collection for us fat-footed sisters, which are apparently ferociously comfortable.  Finally!  Bridal shoes that don’t mean your toes are eternally threatening to turn gangrenous from lack of circulation.  Rainbow Shoes, we salute you.
