WEDDING SHOE + SUCCULENT LOVE | A little Kate Spade goes a long way, baby.

I’ve recently jumped headfirst back into a Fiona Apple kick (past two days) and it’s kind of awesome.  I used to listen to her ALL THE TIME (ohhh boy if cars had recording devices…), and there’s nothing better than taking a little break and returning to an artist over whom you once obsessed.  Ohh Ms. Apple, you ironically bring such exuberance and happiness to my mornings with your sad, deeply introspective, brooding lyrics and melodies.  Thank you for that. :)  Even though I’m kind of sure that wasn’t your intention.

Oh well.  However it hits the ear is how it hits the ear.  I just hope it hits my neighbors ears in a similar manner, because I’m belting the crap out of her songs right now.

Anywho!  The lovely bride in that photo and all those that follow is named Kristen.  Kristen wore Kate Spade on her footsies, and I love her for it.  Now, I’m sure she’s a great girl with amazing qualities, but all I can base my feelings on right now are her shoes, which I think are BANGIN’.  Not bangin’ in the way that bat-out-of-hell Snooki meant when discussing her feeling that all girls “deserve to look bangin’ no matter how young they are,” and then she proceeded to makeover what appeared to be an 11 year old girl.

No, not the Snooki way.  Bangin’ in the appropriate, totally not disgusting way.

Yeah. Ew.

Moving on.  More heel shots!!!!! ↓

Those sparkling beauties pair up to be called the Twirl Karolina.  They’re by Kate Spade, and…

♥ … they’re available for purchase here. ♥

Now, I’d be doing you a disservice by ending this post here, at her shoes.  Especially when there’s so much more inspiration to behold…

Yup, this is happening.

I know.  Amazeballs.

… I think everyone knows that those centerpieces are the kinds that live in my dreams.  Bravo, Bash, Please.

So, think you’d wanna rock a pair of sparkletastic heels on your wedding day?  Or are you planning on a more subdued look?  And what about the table decor?  Are you a succulent lover?

1. If you need to remove wax from table linens, try placing facial tissue folded several times under and over the affected area and pressing with a warm iron.

2. For large parties, you can use a washing machine to store ice, cool beer, etc.

    The shoes are rocking of course! But I’m particularly loving the Max Wanger photography and the Marvimon venue. Swoon, my dream venue (especially with the succulent decor)!

    Yes PLEASE & thank you. LOVE those shoes and the wedding images. STUNNING – all of it!!

  12. Lena on January 18, 2011

    Gah-so gorgeous! I can’t resist a little sparkle, and apparently neither of us could resist Kate Spade today!

    But really, that whole wedding-it’s not fair. How can a single event be so damn gorgeous?

  13. Alicia@CharityWedding on January 18, 2011

    I adore those shoes. And anything gold and sparkly and/or Kate Spade. The combo is perfection. I’m actually wearing Gold Sparkly Tom’s. Not exactly the same but just proving the point. But what I really love are those succulent boxes. Because I could actually have those.

  14. lizzie @ love your way on January 18, 2011

    excellent picks! i love those boxes, too cute!

  15. Amy @ Belles on a Budget on January 19, 2011

    Gorgeous wedding! I am going to be daydreaming about those shoes all day– they are absolutely fabulous!

  16. That is one beautiful and brave bride to walk on those heels. Love her.

  17. Vanessa Elizabeth on January 20, 2011

    I was so smitten with those kate spade shoes during the holidays! They also came in flats, which I’m regretting not purchasing …

    The shoes are gorgeous but I must admit my favorite item here are those centerpieces. I would love to know where to get them or at the very least how to make them
