something borrowed.

i don't think it's a secret how much i love my dearest friend Claire. she's amazing isn't she? 

if you know claire, you know her carrie bradshaw love for expensive & fabulous heels. My dearest friend sent me her two fanciest pairs of shoes for my wedding day as my "something borrowed." 

as much as i love heels, i've never owned a pair that actually had it's own dust bag. 

This was a huge gift, a huge show of affection that she loves me as much as i love her. We're not talking any pairs of shoes... we're talking her Christian Louboutins and never worn Jimmy Choos (remember her post about these beauties?) it's a BIG deal. 

Christian Louboutin

Jimmy Choo

unfortunately, as you can see from the photos below... this cinderella's feet are a tad bit smaller *sad face* i wanted to cry when i walked around my parent's kitchen, hoping to make them magically work (even my pappa was suggesting perhaps getting those gel grippers!).

sad day!

even though they didn't fit, i had to express my absolute love for claire for sending these to me (right after coming back from Guatemala no less!) and trusting me with her babies on my magical day.

I love her more than words. 

she's amazing, isn't she?

ps. Claire also sent me coffee with her beloved Saints team on the package from when she was in Louisiana. I opened it the night max's parents came over to my parent's and met for the first time! special, indeed.

Claire, my life is so much sweeter with you in it. xoxo

I love all of those! I'm a shoe freak, my collection is slowly getting out of control :)


Cassie said...

Woah those are both killer pairs of heels!! What a shame you couldn't wear them but fab to get a photo in none the less.


Rhianne said...

oh gosh M this is amazing, I love her now too :) I wish I had known, I would have sent you a little something too. I prob still will! What shoes did you wear?

Erin said...

Oh now that is the sign of a true friend, someone who will share her shoes with you!

Just put a parcel to you in the post this afternoon... I'm very excited about it! (I wanted to send it weeks ago, right after our Skype date... but I was on the hunt for just the right thing, and I only found it this weekend!)

Happy Four-Day Anniversary, Mrs Maxham!

this is just too sweet.

Claire Kiefer said...

Awwww . . . you are a darling. Of course you would have been welcome to any one of my shoes on your wedding day . . . I'm just so sad that the half size made such a difference. :( I have been on the hunt for a pair of Manolos in your size at Crossroads, but no luck so far! I'll keep looking. I want to see what you ended up wearing and I hope you know you're welcome to any of my shoes at any point--I think I have a pair of Marc Jacobs slingbacks in a 7. :)

LOVE YOU! So very much!

i'm only getting to know claire now and all i can say is "Where has she been all my life???" that was beyond sweet of her to lend out her fabulous shoes!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Too incredibly sweet and how awesome if it fit!

You just attract awesome people my dear :)

Faiza said...

most ridiculous grin on my face! so happy for you micaela!

and i have to say that i am so glad you no longer need to refer to your max as husband-to-be. he's been a husband in your heart for so much longer than your wedding day!

carmar76 said...

oh what awesome shoes! sorry they didn't quite fit, but at least they look cute... : )

Belen said...

i could never walk in such high heels. i'm so afraid of falling! my favorite of the two are the louboutin. they are MAD sexy!

xoxo, bel.

Wow, that was such an amazing something borrowed! Shame they didnt fit, but just them arriving would have been amazing!

Leesh said...

Claire is a wonderful person to have sent you expensive, gorgeous heels as your "something borrowed" for your wedding. What an awesome friend!

Catherine said...

I've known Claire for many, many years and boy does she love her shoes!! She loves her friends even more, which is why I'm not surprised one bit that she sent her precious babies your way. My question is, what shoes will Cinderella wear to the ball??
