A few month’s ago Kristin came across a novel product at the Pretty Pink Toes Boutique: Clean Heel – Heel Stoppers!
Clean Heel – Heel Stoppers? What’s that, you might ask?
[Psst… read next paragraph as if it’s a voiceover for an infomercial!]
Well, ladies they’re the solution to keeping your lovely stilettos from sinking into soft sod, grass, mud, and—why not?—even sand at outdoor parties and events! Clean Heel – Heel Stoppers come in a variety of colors and sizes to accommodate any pair of pumps! They’ve even got decorative Heel Stoppers to perfectly complement any ensemble, including glitter, pearl, heart-shaped, and metallic designs. Call now and we’ll throw in two additional pairs of Clean Heel – Heel Stoppers at no extra charge!
Okay, okay, enough silliness!
The Pretty Pink Toes Boutique may be onto something. I can vividly remember many formal outdoor occasions where my heels sank into grass or mud: my best friend’s wedding on a Palm Springs golf course, the Atlanta Steeplechase Horse races, and most recently at the Key West Food & Wine Festival. Dirtying up a pair of heels is particularly distressing and unbalancing (literally!). It’s certainly something you don’t want to worry about on your big day!
I did a little fantasy shoe shopping for everyone at the Net-A-Porter Bridal Shoes Boutique, and picked out some breathtaking pumps you wouldn’t dare scuff. Do you think Heel Stoppers would protect these babies from the elements at an outdoor destination wedding? Get ready to eat your heart out…
What would your solution be for a wedding on a sandy beach? Frolic sans shoes? Sport flip-flops? Glide down the aisle in ballet slippers? Or would you rock a pair of these unbelievable stilettos?
Ladies, these the important questions! 🙂 For more drool-worthy bridal shoes (and drool-worthy merchandise, in general) head to Net-A-Porter right now!
