40 Days & Counting- Cinderella Shoes

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!

    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!

  • […] {Chanel Booties, Lace ‘Em Up, Black & Gold Snake Skin, Suede & Nude} […]

  • M-re says:

    classic never fails! go with it >.<

  • Ana says:

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

  • Jessica says:

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

  • Eileen says:

    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 (:

  • Kat says:

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

  • Kaylee says:

    Elegant!

  • Carmen says:

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

  • saraj says:

    GO FUNKY! it shows ur true personality

  • jojo says:

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

  • Jamie says:

    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 :)

  • Sheri says:

    Classic pumps for sure.

  • Stephanie says:

    Classic pumps! :)

  • Bema says:

  • Rosni says:

    Hi!

    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!

  • Chiatung says:

    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…

  • Katerina says:

    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 :)

  • Mai Thao says:

    Classic <3

  • madz says:

    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.

  • Sarah says:

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

  • Joyce says:

    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. >_<

  • Rachel says:

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

  • 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 :)

  • A.K. says:

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

  • Manyee.K says:

    I LOVE CLASSIC !!

  • Heather says:

    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.

  • Stefany Tolentino says:

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

  • Katie Mao says:

    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!

  • Bettyjo says:

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

  • Amy says:

    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.

  • Dori says:

    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 :)

  • Vivie says:

    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.

  • Olívia says:

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

  • Leilani says:

    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!

  • Liliana says:

    funky booties!

  • Fairy Grandmother says:

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

  • Alex says:

    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)))

  • Lauren says:

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

  • Kate Jones says:

    CLASSIC is ALWAYS beautiful!!!

  • Joy says:

    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.

  • LadyAndreea says:

    definitely classic !! =D

  • Sophie says:

    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!

  • madalina says:

    classic…classic <3

  • fatima says:

    classic

  • Faye says:

    the classic shoes! it looks beautiful :) xoxo

  • Elin says:

    Classic! ^^ <3

  • merve says:

    it is for sure valentinoss!!!

  • Niole says:

    CLASSIC!!!!!

  • Golden Girl says:

    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. :-)

  • Jerine says:

    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.

  • lina says:

    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

  • Farangis says:

    Classic and elegant! it would look really nice!

  • Aikun says:

    certainly classic

  • Classic. Always classic.

  • Mira says:

    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

  • Dory says:

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

  • Anne says:

    Classic ones!

  • Leno says:

    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! ;)

  • Esther says:

    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

  • 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.

  • Sanne Rietvelt says:

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

  • Marianne Cayco says:

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

  • lala says:

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

  • Virginia says:

    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.

  • sandra says:

    Classic, defo :)

  • Paris Aries Aprill says:

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

  • ViOletz says:

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

  • mimi says:

    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.

  • Romana says:

    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 :)

  • Marisol says:

    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

  • lia says:

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

  • Bibi says:

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

  • Geneva says:

    Classic!!!!

  • grace says:

  • fkxoxo says:

    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

  • Tina says:

  • Melda Auditia says:

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

  • veronica says:

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

  • Lawrayne Oclima says:

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

  • Helena says:

    def Classic!!! :D

  • Stefanya says:

    booties all the way its so you!!!

  • lina says:

    classic for sure!

  • Kelly C says:

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

  • Isaisha says:

    I really like the classic!! :)

  • Karla says:

    classic!

  • Nat says:

    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

  • go funky! channel booties all the way!

  • Julie says:

    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 ;)

  • leetal says:

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

  • MissesG says:

    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.

  • Natalie says:

    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

  • Kim P. says:

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

  • Annie says:

    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. :(

  • Michelle says:

    classicc(:

  • Julie T. says:

    most definitely classic! :)

  • Lois says:

    Classic

  • Mariam says:

    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 :)

  • karen says:

    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.:)

  • Yer says:

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

  • Kookie says:

    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 =)

  • Erica says:

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

  • Brielle says:

    Personally, I prefer the classic shoes for you (:

  • jessica says:

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

  • sherry says:

    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 !!

  • julia says:

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

  • Andrea says:

    The classic shoes. They’re so cute!

  • Nhi Lam says:

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

  • Ayanna says:

    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…

  • Me says:

    definitely the second one :)

  • Deneis says:

    classic. no question about it

  • Diana Li says:

    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 :)

  • Alvaro says:

    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”

  • Anna says:

    Classic, classic!! :D

  • Mary says:

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

  • Michelle says:

    I’d go with the classics (:

  • 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

  • Ksenia says:

    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.

  • Shani says:

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

  • Kai says:

    classic!!!!!

  • Indra says:

    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 :)

  • Diana Tran Nguyen says:

    Classic valentinos!!!!!!! : )

  • Huong says:

    classic!

    xoxo

  • bernice says:

    classic shoe fits any wedding gown.. :)

  • Amelia says:

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

  • Erica says:

    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

  • Alissa says:

    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.

  • Andrea says:

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

  • Erica says:

    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!

  • 3lin says:

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

    3lin

  • Jolene says:

    I prefer the classic ones! :)

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

  • laura molina says:

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

  • jordan says:

    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!

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

  • jcd says:

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

  • L says:

    Classic classic classic!!!

  • Michelle Le says:

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