VIVIENNE WESTWOOD | {Lady Dragon Heart} | The ultimate wedding shoe for the ultimate wedding photos…

Some of you might remember me tweeting about some special pictures I was going to acquire this weekend.  Aka, go to CVS and purchase People Magazine and scan photos of Carrie Underwood’s wedding.  Well, I did go to CVS, and I did LOOK at the photos from her very hyped up wedding.  However, I stopped there.  Because while I like featuring what’s hip, new and in the news, I don’t like compromising a certain quality – err, maybe I should say integrity – that I like to think I maintain here.  And, if I’m completely honest, I was underwhelmed by what I found in that magazine.  Maybe it was the low quality of the photos as displayed in the mag, maybe I was just having a bad day… wait, no, I was hopped up on a grande iced mocha from Starbucks.  And caffeinated drinks make me feel like Mike Meyers’ character Phillip from SNL circa the 1990s.  So I had all the happiness I needed going into that store, plus there was whipped cream on that drink… and I was still let down by what I saw.

Listen, don’t get me wrong, I adooooooooore Carrie Underwood.  She’s a bit of a personal hero, given her rise to fame and her generally positive approach to life.  She seems to have remained quite normal from what I can tell, and I admire that about her.  Oh, and she’s gorgeous, too.  She’s also the boy’s favorite star.  But, unfortunately, when we opened up that magazine spread, we just weren’t fans of her wedding.  And I think you know me well enough to know that I can’t fake enthusiasm.  I’m incredibly happy for her, because I’m pretty sure she was over the moon about her big day, and it was very much in keeping with her style, I believe.  So, for my final thoughts on the subject, I think it was a fabulous day for the two of them.  Alright, enough about that.  Nope, one more thing.  Recently, I happened to feature just the type of “cake” Carrie decided to have for her big day.  Yeah.  Don’t call it a comeback.

Ok, on to a topic I can truthfully wrap my enthusiastic head around.  Vivienne Westwood’s Lady Dragon Hearts!!!!!  SOOO many of you are crushing on this hot little PVC pump that I had to share some of the standout shots I’ve accumulated over the last couple of months.  I adore the way the following brides strutted their stuff for the camera in these numba one stunnas, and I think you might, too.  And by the way, I checked out reviews of these babies, and the consensus seems to be that they’re hella comfortable.  Shocking?  Yes, for a plastic pump.  Way awesome?  Totes, because I can recommend them to you without guilt or fear of retribution.

Here, check ‘em out!

I adore the ivory / red heart version – it tends to be the wedding favorite, by the way:

Here it is in action:

And finally, the gorgeous and somewhat daring yellow / black heart (ick, that sounds terrible) version (I know some of you are going to flip OUT over these):

* * *

They also come in the following colors, which you can find here:

Grey (or, gray, as it says on the site) with navy hearts:

Gold with red hearts:

And if you’re not into the hearts?  Well, how about having a ball?  (;

So, what do you guys think?  Would you consider these for your wedding day?  Perhaps for your bridesmaids?

    I love love love these shoes and want them for my wedding. My fiance thinks they're atrocious, but I don't think that I care :)

    The ivory and red ones are my fav, but they are impossible to find.

  2. Becoming Mrs. Ford on July 19, 2010

    agreed, those shoes are FAB. i havent checked out C-Woods big day but you know I am about to now!

  3. Naomi on July 19, 2010

    Shoes are fabulous! I expected more from Carrie's wedding. I loved her dress but I was expecting the decor to be a little better. Didn't like the arbor they stood under I just expected more “southern” details.

  4. Megan Acosta on July 19, 2010

    I so love these shoes! I get so excited every time I see them! Adorable!!

  5. Lunaandchloeweddings on July 19, 2010

    These are awesome! I have to agree with you on the ivory with read hearts, definitely my fave…and I love the pic with the bride in them! Super cute.


  6. Super Burbs on July 19, 2010

    I was SO hoping Carrie's wedding would be more personal…such a bummer…

    but thanks for lifting my spirits with those shoes!

  7. Emily Tishhouse on July 19, 2010

    I was also underwhelmed by Carrie's wedding. I wasn't impressed with the photography either. . . they seemed to be enjoying the day though and that is all that really matters.

  8. Fred on July 19, 2010

    I loved Carrie's wedding. I wish there were more pictures so we could really what it looked like. Most of the guests that have commented said the wedding was great, beautiful and very classy. I bet it was..too bad there weren't more pictures so we could honestly tell what it all looked like.

  9. whimsicalwonderlandweddings on July 19, 2010

    i purchased the holy grail that are the VW's but they don't like my feet :-( gahhh ah well i shall admire and adore from afar – they are spectacular hehe x x

  10. Postcards and pretties on July 19, 2010

    i'm feeling the grey & navy ones!! they are super cute and it's good to know that they are comfy as well.

    i havent checked out carrie underwood's wedding yet…i'll let you know what i think

  11. Claire on July 19, 2010

    Those have got to be the ugliest shoes I have ever seen. Why would you want to wear those.

    Carrie's wedding was the most beautiful one I have ever seen. I am going to use some of her ideas in my wedding. Gorgeous!

  12. Claie on July 19, 2010

    fantabulous wedding shoes!

  13. Melissa @ The Loveliest Day on July 19, 2010

    I love those shoes. I have considered buying them about a million times, but never followed through. Maybe I should finally just do it!

  14. kathleen on July 19, 2010

    yeah, I was also sort of disappointed in carrie underwood's wedding — I hoped they would have more photos, to start! It wasn't really my taste and I really didn't like that arbor thing. Ah well, to each her own! Just wish they'd made my purchase of the mag worthwhile with more pictures.

    These shoes are super cool, though I wonder if they make your feet sweat since they're basically plastic? I love how fun they are.

  15. on July 19, 2010

    That shoe is amazing! Glad you put together a fab post about it!!

  16. Brit @ Landlocked Bride on July 19, 2010

    I love love love those VW shoes!

  17. A guy's opinion on July 19, 2010

    Wow those are some ugly shoes (sorry to offend those that like them)! I'm glad my fiancee has good taste. Might be cute on a flower girl, but come on…they look so cheap and gaudy!

  18. A different guy's opinion on July 19, 2010

    @A guy's opinion –
    I dont' think they're gaudy at all. But I only say that since the bride is wearing them. Brides like to wear “statement” shoes to contrast the predictableness of the white dress. It's your wedding day ladies – be as bright colorful and creativity as you wanna be!! :)

  19. Naomi on July 19, 2010

    Gaudy is a harsh word. What one might consider tasteful another might consider down right ugly. Besides it's the brides choice.

  20. Jessica Coates on July 19, 2010

    I like the grey ones with the gold balls. Cute for a wedding for some. I tend to agree with the post from A guy's opinion and wouldn't recommend them to close friends. Not to mention that they pointy and not comfortable at all. Cute in theory not sure cute in reality.

  21. Kv on July 19, 2010

    Kind of a love/hate thing for me…..I think they are super cute and look great in the pics but I dont think i actually like them for myself. Not a fan of the plastic look but still something about them I really like…hmmm weird!!!!

  22. brancoprata on July 19, 2010

    I absolutely adore these shoes!! Last Friday i was in a meeting with the mother of one of my brides and she had these shoes on… i think i stare at the shoes the all time we spoke ;))

  23. Pixie Dav on July 21, 2010

    i have these shoes although i dont they suit my tattooed roses i want to cry but i thing i will have to go with red wedges with my dress and sell these :( or just wear them and be in pain haha x
