40 Days & Counting- Cinderella Shoes

posted by on 2012.07.09, under Wedding

As you might know by now… I have a slight {unhealthy} obsession with SHOES! Although I really should wait until I see HOW my dress looks like  (it’s currently being custom made as we speak), I cant help but snoop around for that perfect cinderella shoe!

When it comes to shoes I generally like to make a statement, and that’s why I’m completely obsessed over how this bride paired her soft lace gown with a pair of Chanel booties. I say that this is a a good reflection of my everyday style- feminine dresses played down with a pair of booties. it’s all about JUXTAPOSING!

But then again you can NEVER go wrong with a pair of classic Valentino pumps.

Should I go with classic shoes to keep my look all around  timeless, & elegant or should I sass up my dress with a pair of funky booties? 

Let me know your thoughts and if you happen to see any amazing shoes please let me know in the comments below or on my FB page and/or Twitter!

Help me find my Cinderella Shoes! 



P.S- The 2nd Episode of the Wedding series will be live on my channel on Wednesday  and guess what??? Yall will FINALLY get to meet Mr. Chriselle (my fiance)!! yay!

and just in case you missed Episode 1 HERE it is :)



Hello, I am curious where you found the Chanel booties? My friend is desperately trying to find these for her wedding, but we aren’t having any luck! Thanks!

classic never fails! go with it >.<

M-re ( July 17, 2012 at 12:16 PM )

Classics definitely you will look back and still think they are beautiful!

Ana ( July 15, 2012 at 10:28 PM )

Stick with the classics – you don’t want to regret it 20 years down the track.

Jessica ( July 15, 2012 at 4:20 AM )

I think you should go with the classic ones. Even though they are classic, they look so pretty especially since you can look down at your feet and see a bow with sparkles (:

Eileen ( July 14, 2012 at 5:57 PM )

Please choose the classic Valentino pumps they are elegant, classy, yet the bows are so you!

Kat ( July 14, 2012 at 4:38 PM )


Kaylee ( July 14, 2012 at 3:32 PM )

Funky booties! TOTALLY adds a bit of your personal style with your wedding look.

Carmen ( July 14, 2012 at 2:02 PM )

GO FUNKY! it shows ur true personality

saraj ( July 14, 2012 at 1:38 PM )

Definitely chanel :) but it depends also on the dress ur wearing, anyways those shoes are gorgeous

jojo ( July 14, 2012 at 9:00 AM )

You should so go classic, especially with fashion always changing. You might not like the look of the booties in 10 years but classic, is well classic, its forever stylish :)

Jamie ( July 13, 2012 at 11:58 PM )

Classic pumps for sure.

Sheri ( July 13, 2012 at 7:37 PM )

Classic pumps! :)

Stephanie ( July 13, 2012 at 1:33 PM )

classic chris :D

Bema ( July 13, 2012 at 12:42 PM )

Sorry lol I commented earlier but I wanted you to see what mine looked like on my wedding day.


Good luck again

Rosni ( July 13, 2012 at 10:04 AM )


Okay so I love booties so for my wedding I was completely undecided if I should wear a classic look or what I like. Till I found these Vera Wang booties in ivory! I completely fell in love with them, they instantly added more than 4 inches to my height (I’m 4’11″ so it was greatly appreciated) and I looked very classic and yet fun. I was even able to dance in them!

Anywho, the point I’m trying to make is that you don’t have to decide just yet- especially if you’re in between two shoes. Probably means that they’re just not “The Ones” (hey I treated my shoes like I treated my dress- I wanted to feel amazing)

So follow your heart, if you’re undecided maybe these two shoes are not the ones- not to mention you can probably find shoes that have the two looks you like combined! <3

Good Luck and thank you for letting us into your wedding!

Rosni ( July 13, 2012 at 9:32 AM )

I prefer classic ones:) You can wear the bootie ones any time with anything else, but I don’t think you should wear it for your wedding day:) It’s just my opinion…

Chiatung ( July 13, 2012 at 4:52 AM )

I prefer the classic one although the booties will make big statement, but you got to marry once and this is about what will make you happy :)

Katerina ( July 13, 2012 at 2:07 AM )

go funky ;-)

Nestrella ( July 13, 2012 at 12:47 AM )

Classic <3

Mai Thao ( July 12, 2012 at 3:19 PM )

I love that timeless classic look. I think the booties are a little too funky and out there. although it would make a statement, it may not make the right statement further down the road. i like the idea of the blue christian loubotins. classics with twist provide the right amount of funky pizzazz and timeless classic.

madz ( July 12, 2012 at 2:47 PM )

Love that booties so much but I think classic pump will never go wrong with your wedding dress.

Sarah ( July 12, 2012 at 1:54 PM )

Girl, if I were you, I would get both! You can wear the ones you like the most, which will probably be the booties, then change into the classic pair later? idk, just a random thought/suggestion. >_<

Joyce ( July 12, 2012 at 10:26 AM )

Definately go classic, I love those last ones with the bow.

Rachel ( July 12, 2012 at 7:10 AM )

The booties! Its your special day and what a statement you can mak eas a stylist with a little funky item to yoy wedding attire :)

Tatiana Touch ( July 11, 2012 at 5:23 PM )

Classic for sure!
Maybe you should try looking at New Christian Louboutin Cinderella shoes that came out few days ago!

A.K. ( July 11, 2012 at 10:43 AM )


Manyee.K ( July 11, 2012 at 10:15 AM )

Your wedding is all about your personality and your husbands personalities coming together. I think you should go with booties! They are so interesting. And I think… Much more you.

Heather ( July 11, 2012 at 5:13 AM )

I love them all! BUT booties are so you!!

Stefany Tolentino ( July 10, 2012 at 8:45 PM )

Definitely the classic, why downplay your wedding dress? However, like all others commenting here, I’m hope you can find a classic pair with detailing that will give it the unique flare!

Katie Mao ( July 10, 2012 at 8:33 PM )

Even though I love those booties, I think that you will be more happy with a classic shoe.

Bettyjo ( July 10, 2012 at 8:17 PM )

I’m all for making it your own, and standing out, but I also do think a classic will forever be timeless. Sure it may look gorgeous now, but many years down the line, you may think to yourself “What was I thinking?”

What I do suggest is to pull out a classic, but with your personality written all over it like a pop of colour or sequins or florals. :) Good luck finding that pair of Cinderella shoes.

Amy ( July 10, 2012 at 7:08 PM )

I think the Valentino crystals bow pumps are better. Even though I love the Chanel booties and would prefer them in any other occasion, but for a wedding the pumps would be a better fit :)

Dori ( July 10, 2012 at 3:50 PM )

Booties are fabulous, but if you wear them every day, that’s probably where they should stay (Haha I’m so clever rhyming here and there! xD). This is a special day like no other, so I think you should go with a pair of timeless, classic, but still hands-down fabulous, pumps.

Vivie ( July 10, 2012 at 1:58 PM )

Classic for sure!!!! In ten years you wanna look at your weeding photos and still feel in style =)

Olívia ( July 10, 2012 at 1:21 PM )

I loved the last pair of shoes (the ones w/the diamond bows)!
And I think it would be cute if you mixed both concepts… Like a shoe that has a classic style, but with a unique flare! But always remember that you’re the bride, so it’s 100% your choice. Use whatever concept you like!

Leilani ( July 10, 2012 at 12:17 PM )

funky booties!

Liliana ( July 10, 2012 at 11:13 AM )

Keep it classy! Go with the timeless and elegant pumps! All the best finding that perfect shoe, Cinderella.

Fairy Grandmother ( July 10, 2012 at 10:47 AM )

Standing out is amazing, but i think that a wedding is a day when a bride should go classic. smth sweet, cute, girly, not exactly princess like, but beautiful)) i guess no matter how much i love my booties, i`ll leave them out for a day)))

Alex ( July 10, 2012 at 10:37 AM )

The booties are awesome sauce. Keep it true to your style and rock the juxtaposition!

Lauren ( July 10, 2012 at 10:29 AM )

CLASSIC is ALWAYS beautiful!!!

Kate Jones ( July 10, 2012 at 9:46 AM )

I like being different and stand out. On My wedding last year I wore blue heels from Christian loubiton. I don’t think that classic heels make a statement and I think it’s too borring. I was too considering wearing boots, I found a pair of white swade and lace ancleboots which I loved. But in the end I though the blue swade heels would pop more and also very unique.
My recommendation is to find a theme for your wedding, and dress, accessorise, decorate accordingly.

My theme was white and blue and a hint of orange as it was autum when I got married. It was a small simple wedding with closest friends and family.

Joy ( July 10, 2012 at 9:23 AM )

definitely classic !! =D

LadyAndreea ( July 10, 2012 at 9:14 AM )

I love booties, believe me. But I think you will rock the classic ones far much better on your wedding day. Just my two cents!

Sophie ( July 10, 2012 at 9:11 AM )

classic…classic <3

madalina ( July 10, 2012 at 9:02 AM )


fatima ( July 10, 2012 at 9:02 AM )

the classic shoes! it looks beautiful :) xoxo

Faye ( July 10, 2012 at 7:53 AM )

Classic! ^^ <3

Elin ( July 10, 2012 at 7:19 AM )

it is for sure valentinoss!!!

merve ( July 10, 2012 at 6:59 AM )


Niole ( July 10, 2012 at 6:51 AM )

There’s nothing wrong with a bootie style. This Chanel number is lovely, but it doesn’t compliment an elegant wedding dress. Too me, it looks too off and heavy looking. Save it for another fabulous outfit where you can showcase your legs. If the bootie were made of lace, a softer colour, or was golden, it would be a different story. But…For that Cinderella look, go for a Delicate Classic with “Bling” and “Sparkle!! You’ll be glad you did. :-)

Golden Girl ( July 10, 2012 at 6:27 AM )

Classic is the better choice. Although a pair of statement bootie may look interesting, you don’t want to look back at your wedding photos and feel regret.

Jerine ( July 10, 2012 at 6:19 AM )

i absolutely love the classic ones!!!they’re amazing!!so chic and elegant!!
also three days ago my cousin got married and she wore the classic nude louboutins and they were really amazing!!simply but chic at the same time

lina ( July 10, 2012 at 4:02 AM )

love the classic shoes! very princess-like! (:

GMae ( July 10, 2012 at 3:55 AM )

Classic heels with a funky detail!

XX Teresa

Teresa ( July 10, 2012 at 3:53 AM )

i’m all for classic! i mean, it’s your wedding! :)

See my shoot in Universal Studios here! xoxoandrea.com

stef ( July 10, 2012 at 3:40 AM )

Classic and elegant! it would look really nice!

Farangis ( July 10, 2012 at 2:54 AM )

certainly classic

Aikun ( July 10, 2012 at 2:50 AM )

Classic. Always classic.

The slow pace ( July 10, 2012 at 2:07 AM )

I prefer the funky booties. Nothing against the Valentino heels
but compaired to the booties they are just plain boring. Hey but it´s
your choice :D


Mira ( July 10, 2012 at 2:05 AM )

I say classic. I love the way they fit with the dress.

Dory ( July 10, 2012 at 1:39 AM )

Classic ones!

Anne ( July 10, 2012 at 1:35 AM )

I like the funky ones, u know that everyone is always expecting the bride to look classic and by choosing the booties you’ll set a trend, but also think about the dress and which kind of shoes could give it the perfect touch, btw good luck on everything! ;)

Leno ( July 10, 2012 at 1:25 AM )

I would go for a classic shoe shape, but maybe for a not so classic color. I think I would take (real) green wedding shoes! :D

Esther ( July 10, 2012 at 1:08 AM )

I like funky! I already know I’ll be wearing blue shoes at my wedding. But it seems like your wedding is very old-fashioned, timeless, and incredibly elegant. I would stick with a classic shoe to go with your overall look.

Jessie Frederick ( July 10, 2012 at 12:57 AM )

I’d say funky,, don’t follow the road everyone already took. Pave your own ;]

Sanne Rietvelt ( July 10, 2012 at 12:25 AM )

why not go for both? classic with a funky twist? :) funky color, classic style or with funky embellishments but classicaly styled.

Marianne Cayco ( July 9, 2012 at 11:55 PM )

hard to determine , both fantasic n suit chriselle
yet i still prefer classic heels esp with this lovely bow on top .. love heaps.

lala ( July 9, 2012 at 11:32 PM )

Please go with classic! Or even try a funky classic, but I just don’t find those booties going well with a wedding dress at all. It’s too causal.

Virginia ( July 9, 2012 at 11:30 PM )

Classic, defo :)

sandra ( July 9, 2012 at 11:28 PM )

I think you’re planning your wedding as a fairy-tale so Christian Louboutin’s Cinderella’s Glass Slippers would be perfect

Paris Aries Aprill ( July 9, 2012 at 11:01 PM )

I prefer the second pair! They’re elegant, classy but not ordinary at all!

ViOletz ( July 9, 2012 at 10:55 PM )

I think classic is timeless. You like the booties now, but what if in 10-20 years you will look back on your wedding photos and go: what was I thinking with those Chanel booties? I say go with the Valentino ones.

mimi ( July 9, 2012 at 10:43 PM )

I think the classic ones, thats just my personal style, but you never know the classic ones might not match with the dress either. Be confident with what you wear :)

Romana ( July 9, 2012 at 10:02 PM )

I saw the post of the wedding where the bride is using the Chanel booties this week! :D , I think you can rock both , one is really funky and cool and the other really romantic, I will go for Valentino, are timeless

Marisol ( July 9, 2012 at 9:08 PM )

Judging from your style I would def. reccomend classic…i think you would gorgeous & romantic in a pair of classic heels…

lia ( July 9, 2012 at 8:49 PM )

Funky! It’ll be remembered for sure! Gorgeous!

Bibi ( July 9, 2012 at 8:39 PM )


Geneva ( July 9, 2012 at 8:16 PM )

go for classic!!

grace ( July 9, 2012 at 7:49 PM )

I would totally go for the classic shoes…you don’t know if you’re going to regret wearing funky booties when you’re 50 y/o or so LOL


fkxoxo ( July 9, 2012 at 7:42 PM )

Classic for wedding booties for reception!

Tina ( July 9, 2012 at 7:31 PM )

I’d prefer the feminime valentino shoes, especially the one in nude <3


Melda Auditia ( July 9, 2012 at 7:31 PM )

VAKENTINO, VALENTINO!!! but gotta love those Chanel booties

veronica ( July 9, 2012 at 7:27 PM )

Classic shoes for the aisle.
Funky booties for party time!!

Lawrayne Oclima ( July 9, 2012 at 7:24 PM )

def Classic!!! :D

Helena ( July 9, 2012 at 7:23 PM )

booties all the way its so you!!!

Stefanya ( July 9, 2012 at 7:15 PM )

classic for sure!

lina ( July 9, 2012 at 7:14 PM )

Classic ones look best. Maybe save the funky ones for the reception?

Kelly C ( July 9, 2012 at 7:13 PM )

I really like the classic!! :)

Isaisha ( July 9, 2012 at 7:12 PM )


Karla ( July 9, 2012 at 7:03 PM )

Hi Chriselle~
it’s just a nice feeling to follow you on your counting down to your Wedding journey~
I believe both would suit your wedding gown but personally I think that funky look suits you the best since it’s just sooo your style, y’know what I mean right hehe :)
they’re sassy.. but at the same time, elegant (or the other way around)

so yeah.. I hope my opinion would be a bit help for you!

All the best! xoxo

Nat ( July 9, 2012 at 6:53 PM )

go funky! channel booties all the way!

michelle nazar ( July 9, 2012 at 6:50 PM )

as much as i love those Chanel booties I really prefer a classic Valentino… so timeless, which is what you want for a wedding ;) so I would say classic! Then again, maybe you could switch into a funkier pair of heels for the reception? think about it ;)

Julie ( July 9, 2012 at 6:46 PM )

in a perfect world- valentino for the ceremony, chanel for the reception. both are fab!

leetal ( July 9, 2012 at 6:42 PM )

People always say go classic and timeless with weddings because you don’t wanna look back on those wedding photos and think “What the hell was I thinking”…but then again…if Funky is what you are, I think you should go funky. You have the talent to make it funky, but not in a tacky way.

MissesG ( July 9, 2012 at 6:38 PM )

I would choose classic and if you were to change into a second dress later in the evening then I would pair it with a funky fun statement shoe ^^ I just hope any shoe you choose will be comfortable cause you’ll be on your feet all day missy! haha

Natalie ( July 9, 2012 at 6:27 PM )

I went classic on the last one, but this one, definitely funky. #FUNKY!

Kim P. ( July 9, 2012 at 6:25 PM )

CLASSIC! Please go classic. Boots/booties/like-a-boot and a wedding dress don’t really go along unless you’re trying to have a Western wedding. :(

Annie ( July 9, 2012 at 6:23 PM )


Michelle ( July 9, 2012 at 6:18 PM )

most definitely classic! :)

Julie T. ( July 9, 2012 at 6:12 PM )


Lois ( July 9, 2012 at 6:01 PM )

Classic!!! They are so pretty!! The funky ones will take the attention away from your face and dress, which should be the most attention worthy!! It would be a great party shoes however :)

Mariam ( July 9, 2012 at 5:35 PM )

you´re gonna stand up cuz is ur day!, but u should use both, classic ones to the ceremony and funky ones when u get tired.:)

karen ( July 9, 2012 at 5:33 PM )

Of course classic!… the other shoe looks out of place.

Yer ( July 9, 2012 at 5:28 PM )

I think both would be really nice. However, it’s always good to think about the comfort of the shoes as well. You’ll probably be dancing most of the night so comfort is just as important as style =)

Kookie ( July 9, 2012 at 5:25 PM )


Diana ( July 9, 2012 at 5:24 PM )

Classic for the wedding dress. BUT, if you change into a party dress or something different for the reception, go modern!

Erica ( July 9, 2012 at 5:23 PM )

Personally, I prefer the classic shoes for you (:

Brielle ( July 9, 2012 at 5:23 PM )

go with the classic :) it’s always the best choice for weddings and it’s girly and defines a princess :)

jessica ( July 9, 2012 at 5:22 PM )

I think its best to keep it classic, just because you want your wedding outfit to be timeless, so its considered very beautiful now and in the future. trends come and go but the classics will stay forever. Oh, and good luck on your wedding !!

sherry ( July 9, 2012 at 5:13 PM )

Classic ! Love the booties too, but the classic shoes are AMAZING !

julia ( July 9, 2012 at 5:11 PM )

The classic shoes. They’re so cute!

Andrea ( July 9, 2012 at 5:09 PM )

Classic! There’s a reason why is called “classic”. Like you said, you can never go wrong. (:

Nhi Lam ( July 9, 2012 at 5:08 PM )

I’m torn. The part of me that loves standing out says the booties, but then the princess part of me says the classic ones…

Ayanna ( July 9, 2012 at 5:04 PM )

definitely the second one :)

Me ( July 9, 2012 at 5:04 PM )

classic. no question about it

Deneis ( July 9, 2012 at 5:04 PM )

The booties are great but I think they should be used for other outfits, when it comes to weddings I think the classic is better. Your wedding day is a day that you will remember for the rest of your life, and the photos will be around for generations so choose wisely and good luck :)

Diana Li ( July 9, 2012 at 4:58 PM )

The classic one, you have to think that the photos from your wedding it’s something that it would last forever… and you don’t want to look at your photos and say “what the hell i was thinking with those shoes”

Alvaro ( July 9, 2012 at 4:58 PM )

Classic, classic!! :D

Anna ( July 9, 2012 at 4:55 PM )

Class fo’ sho. They look so good on your feet! So delicate and lovely :D

Mary ( July 9, 2012 at 4:54 PM )

I’d go with the classics (:

Michelle ( July 9, 2012 at 4:53 PM )

I think you look great in both, but I prefer the classic! it looks more weddingy kinda.. lol But then again those booties are really YOU.. so I guess I like both LOL Just have fun choosing!!<3

Sungkyung Kim ( July 9, 2012 at 4:51 PM )

I’d go with classic. Unless the theme of your wedding reflects the juxtaposition you mention between a certain style of dress and bold shoes to offset it slightly. Since you already wear booties in your everyday life, I think that you should go with a more cohesive outfit that doesn’t look out of place.

Ksenia ( July 9, 2012 at 4:51 PM )

Definitely classic, i feel like they would go with your dress no matter how it looks.

Shani ( July 9, 2012 at 4:50 PM )


Kai ( July 9, 2012 at 4:50 PM )

Hate the booties.. for a wedding NO unless you change your dress into a short funky one then maybe.. THE GOLD BOWS PRICELESS AND PERFECTION if you ask me :)

Indra ( July 9, 2012 at 4:50 PM )

Classic valentinos!!!!!!! : )

Diana Tran Nguyen ( July 9, 2012 at 4:50 PM )



Huong ( July 9, 2012 at 4:49 PM )

classic shoe fits any wedding gown.. :)

bernice ( July 9, 2012 at 4:49 PM )

Valentino hon’. He’s the king of wedding-like dresses for a reason :D but keep the booties for the afterparty! X

Amelia ( July 9, 2012 at 4:48 PM )

I’m not sure if these will be available before your wedding, but you could go with ‘the fairest of them all’ and wear Christian Louboutin’s cinderella shoes http://live.drjays.com/index.php/2012/07/09/christian-louboutin-designs-princess-shoes-inspired-by-cinderellas-glass-slippers/ now THOSE are shoes fit for a princess, which you most certainly are :D

Erica ( July 9, 2012 at 4:38 PM )

I think the booties are great for your EVERDAY style, but for your wedding, you should go for the classic shoes. I think you should look for a happy medium, something unique and different but still manages to be elegant.

Alissa ( July 9, 2012 at 4:38 PM )

I agree, it looks fantastic and totally unexpected! Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Andrea ( July 9, 2012 at 4:36 PM )

I think the valentino bow pumps with the crystals are so beautiful and timeless- they’re funky in their own way, and when you look back I can’t IMAGINE you’ll regret wearing them!

Erica ( July 9, 2012 at 4:35 PM )

left 1 more month to go. Can’t wait too read your wedding post. u are awesome!


3lin ( July 9, 2012 at 4:15 PM )

I prefer the classic ones! :)

Jolene ( July 9, 2012 at 4:12 PM )

Definitely the Chanel booties. I mean, this is Chriselle Lim’s wedding. It should be no where near classic and cliche.

MArnie Nguyen ( July 9, 2012 at 4:03 PM )

Both!!! One for the ceremony and the other for the party!!!!

laura molina ( July 9, 2012 at 4:03 PM )

I personally think that the booties looked really out of place and kinda like, um i forgot to get shoes but these are the only silver shoes i have…
I prefer a classic pump, but one thing my friend did when she got married was she had a large case of assorted flipflops for the evening party for the guests and she brought along her favourite flat, silver crystal sandals to wear after the photos, dinner and dances so that she was comfortable, yet still had that edge!

jordan ( July 9, 2012 at 3:59 PM )

Nice shoes ;)

Petra Victoria ( July 9, 2012 at 3:54 PM )

Rock that dress with those chanel booties, girl!!!

Tina @ Tinacious Me ( July 9, 2012 at 3:52 PM )

funky ones! They will be very unique and really make you stand out. :)

jcd ( July 9, 2012 at 3:32 PM )

Classic classic classic!!!

L ( July 9, 2012 at 3:21 PM )

both! the classic ones for the wedding and the other for the party! lol
