My good friend Lindsey got married last weekend. And when a good friend gets married, it's customary to offer one's help. If you're a baker, you make a cake. If you have a nice voice, you sing. So, being a graphic designer, I offered to design her invitations. I also offered/begged to help pick out her wedding shoes.
We talked a little bit about what she was looking for— heel height, color, shape, platform, etc— and then I started emailing her links. And sending her picture messages. And calling her from Lord & Taylor . . . and Bergdorfs . . . and Barneys . . .
Here are just a few of the shoes I sent her.
Of course Lindsey had good feedback:
Through a process of elimination, she decided she wanted metallic shoes with a hidden platform to walk down the aisle. (She also got sequin flats for dancing).
It was really fun hunting down options for Lindsey (and of course throwing in the occasional red herring . . . )
