  2. i’m totally in love with the elopement pumps!! the vintage style and bright color would be awesomely perfect for my wedding! i just wish i could afford them … fingers crossed til tomorrow!

  4. I love the Spirit-of-the-Moment Heels! What a great fun heel to make you feel beautiful and special on such an important day of your life!

  5. Heartstrings heels! <3<3<3 I'm not even a shoe person, but I have to get these… I don't even care if it's for my wedding next year, I just might wear them every single day before then. Even while sleeping. They're adorable.

  6. I have been OBSESSED with the elopement pumps for months. They are even on my pinterest page. They would be the perfect “something blue” for my wedding in October!

  7. Okay… I am getting married in September and am having a horrible time trying to find shoes I love.

    So… that being said. I found the two I love. Why two? Because I’m indecisive… hence why I haven’t picked out shoes.

    1) Criss-Cross T-straps – In Sunshine, my wedding colors are yellow and brown

    2) Auroral Vapor Heels- because I love the idea of the wrap around tulle!


  8. i LOVE the dimensionality peep to in green. no blue! no… green. in a wedding in hawaii in september and could use some pretty shoes to go with my dress. she’s the best friend a girl could ask for and i want to look perfect on her big day.


  9. I adore the Cendrillon d’Orsays heels! The d’Orsay shape is so flattering and elegant, and I love the sparkles that make the shoe look fun, carefree and beautiful at the same time. I would kill to have these heels!!!

  10. I am head over heels for the spotted sea heels! They are gorgeous. I love the contrast between the coral and blue. The color as well as the knot adds such a fun detail to a classic peep toe.

  11. For me it would have to be the Cendrillon d’Orsays. They are perfectly crafted to be oh so elegant and classy, and then showered with glitter without any apology or half heartedness. They could light up any outfit while still looking tasteful, and be the star of any event they’re worn in.

  12. Feather Trimmed d’Orsays. Simply G O R G E O U S.
    Feather shoes makes me feel like a princess. ?

  13. My favorite pair of shoes from BHLDN are the starstruck heels. The colors for both the Citron/Safari and the Baby Rose/Rose Gold are just perfect. I like how they could be dressed up or dressed down.

  14. OH MAN. It is so hard to pick–I think it’s a dead heat between the pretty blue Forties Forever Slingbacks and the quirky Polka Dot Mary Janes. The mary janes might pull ahead because they’d be perfect for my wedding.

  15. They say a diamond is a woman’s best friend but I’d have to disagree. Shoes are my sole-mates! Especially a unique beaut like the Spirit-Of-The-Moment Heels (!!! I feel that every shoe you own should make a statement, give you confidence and bring out your fabulous personality. These amazing peep toe pumps are truly unique and elegant and every time I would wear them I’d truly have a Spirit-Of-The-Moment moment!

  16. I love the “Parisian Ballet Flats”, they are the perfect shoe to compliment my dress and wedding colors and best of all – they look super comfortable so I can celebrate all night long!

  17. I love the moonlit peeptoes! My wedding colors are gold and bronze, so they’re perfect.

  18. I love the Spirit of the moment heels! They are so sophisticated, completely sexy and their unique details are to die for! Oh! Did I mention that they match the wedding dress I just bought on Sunday? Dream come true! Love the blog and love this giveaway.

  19. The elopement pumps are my favorite! They are the perfect blend of mint+cream, and have a vintage look. LOVE them!

  20. I love the dimensionality peeptoes in pink. I Have an upcoming wedding to attend with an awesome little black dress to wear and these shoes would look great!

  21. The Cendrillon d’Orsays are honestly the most beautiful shoes I have ever seen. They are so romantic with their glitter and oh so perfect bow! And they’re not too high like every other show lately seems to be. I’ve been gawking at them since they appeared on the website.

  22. MY favorite shoes are the Dimensionality Peep-Toes, I have a wedding I am going to be in soon and desperately need shoes these colors!!

  23. BHLDN’s shoes are just too good. I love the Starstruck Heels in baby rose/rose gold so much lately, even though it’s nearly impossible to choose just one pair.

  24. I think the Elopement Pumps would be perfect for my best friend (the bride!) and she would be so surprised to get them at her shower! Hopefully she just doesn’t get any ideas about eloping on all of us 😉

  25. I love nearly every pair of shoes on BHLDN and I’m not even normally a shoe person! It took me awhile to decide, but the Cendrillon d’Orsays are my top pick. I love the d’Orsay style and the ribbon look on the toe. I’ve been checking these out for awhile as I’ve been wedding planning. We have quite a bit of glitter and sparkle incorporated into our reception and I’d love to have some sparkle on me too!

  26. How absolutely gorgeous are the Cirrus T-Straps shoes…they would be perfect for my dress this September!! Gorgeous!

  27. I adore the Wreathed Laurel Barefoot Sandals! Perfect for adding glamour and sparkle to a beach wedding, while still feeling the sand between your toes and not having your heels sink in! Really gorgeous!

  28. Wow, what a fun giveaway. It’s tough to pick, but I love the elopement pumps. They are dressy enough for the wedding, but versatile enough to wear afterward as well. Plus, they are your “something blue”.

  29. I LOVE the elopement pumps from BHLDN! They are the perfect pop of color with such a cute vintage twist.

  30. I absolutely love the Covert Manuscript Heels []! They would be the perfect pop of blue (my favorite color) to any outfit. Also you can never go wrong with a bow on a pair of pumps!

  31. In love with the Elopement Pumps. And even more appropriate because that is what my fiance and I are going to do… but that’s just between you and me 😉

  32. I absolutely love the Heartstring Heels. They remind me of shoes that my great-great aunt Mouse would wear… classy and flattering, with a touch of quirkiness. I would love to wear them on my wedding day… and on as many occasions afterwards as my feet would allow it!

  33. I have been in love with the Feather Trimmed d’Orsays! Not the most practical shoe for an outdoor wedding, but they are gorgeous. They are the public version of the marabou feather slippers that my mother used to keep hidden in her closet. The little girl in me has dreamt of wearing a pair of shoes like these!

  34. We have been helping our daughter search high and low for wedding shoes. Last week, she finally found a pair she loved but they sold out before she was able to place her order. We think the Moonlit Peep-toes ( from BHLDN are even more beautiful than the original pair that she found! The elegant shimmer will match her decor and style so perfectly! These shoes would look so lovely on her for her wedding. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!

  35. I love Polka-Dot Mary Janes! Especially as I have a matching beautiful dress, but they would go with so many apparels!

  36. The brocade kitten heels and I are meant to live out a lifetime of happiness together. They perfectly nail timeless style, and the orange ribbon coordinates perfectly with our bridesmaid dresses from Anthro. Some things are meant to be.

  37. The french blue bowtie flats are to die for!! I’ve been eying them for weeks! They’re classically elegant and fit in perfectly with the aesthetic of my big day! Plus, I can wear them well after the wedding!

  38. I LOVE the Elopement Pumps! These would be perfect for my wedding. The colors match my bridesmaids’ dresses (seafoam green), and the white detailing on the shoes look like waves. Perfect for our destination wedding in Hawaii next year!

    I also love Moonlit Peeptoes! So cute! Gold wouldn’t match the color theme of our wedding… But I am seriously considering purchasing just for wearing on a day to day basis…. Sparkly and gold is appropriate for the office, right?

  39. I absolutely LOVE the Brocade Kitten Heels! I am getting married at an Italian villa and because these are made out of silk and have such a classy feel to them, I feel like they would go perfectly with both the venue and overall theme of my wedding! I also love that they are a shorter heel because they seem like they would be really comfortable! Wow, what a great giveaway…thanks so much for the chance to win!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  40. I absolutely adore BHLDN! I stumbled on their site a few months back, and now I’m saving up to purchase the Afternoon Social dress for my 1930’s Parisian theme wedding. While I was dress hunting I feel in shoe love with their vintage-style Elopement Pumps

    I’ve been pining for them for some time. Their robin’s-egg blue color and classic elegance go perfectly with our gold, pink, and light blue wedding colors. But more than anything I can picture wearing them while I dance with my new husband:)

  41. i’ve been looking everywhere for shoes for my september backyard wedding– it’s been impossible to find a cute colorful shoe with a low, wider heel so that my feet don’t sink into the grass! the sunshine cross-cross t-straps would be SO perfect, because they’d also go with our green and yellow colors. they really would complete the look and give my dress the little pop it needs. love!

  42. I Love, love, Love the Maracatu Slingbacks! They would be the perfect fun, statement, party shoe to wear to a wedding, or really any festivity for that matter!


    Oh my stars, where to begin. There are so many reasons why I would love to win these shoes. I’m getting married in October, and have decided to keep things very simple. This includes my dress, so I just think these heels will step things up a notch. And I am always a fan of vintage glamour, thereby also making these shoes perfect! Thank you for the opportunity, BHLDN – keep up the delightful glam!

  44. I love the spirit-of-the moment heels! The sparkly gold would go great with the gold jewelry I’ll be wearing on my wedding day 🙂

  45. I really love the heartstrings heels. They are sooo cute but kind of clumpy, which I totally love! Please pick me!

  46. Best.giveaway.ever. I have been “visiting” the polka dot mary janes online every day for the past couple weeks. They are my dream wedding shoe!

  47. I’ve been coveting the Brocade Kitten Heels ( for months after I saw them pinned on Pinterest. Whoever dreamed up these glamorous heels channeled my ideas about the perfect shoe for my wedding: vintage to match my mom’s wedding dress that I’ll be wearing, classy, not so tall that I have to hobble about awkwardly, ivory silk and with the most ideal burnt-orange accent to coordinate with our wedding colors. Sigh.

  48. Oh how I love these: . They remind me of my grandmother, because in the collection of jewelry she left to my mother there are necklaces and earrings with little flowers and crystals that look similar to the style used here (I can still smell her White Shoulders perfume on that box!). They also remind me of my mother, because she loves to run barefoot and taught me how to appreciate less traditional, more whimsical styles. Something like this would be a multigenerational treasure.

  49. Ummmm??? How do you choose from such fabulousness!? I want them all, but the wreathed laurel barefoot sandal would be perfect for our ceremony on the beach in Puerto Rico.

  50. There is something to be said for the simplicity of a ballet flat. I am getting married in April and am in LOVE with the Parisian Ballet Flat in gold. I love the style of the ballet flat with the oversized bow. It makes a delicate statement with any wedding attire.

  51. I have had my eye on the Elopement Pumps for MONTHS!! Yes, I pinned them on my Engagement Board on Pinterest & so did one of my bridesmaids (before she saw I did!) because they are perfectly “me”. Our wedding colors are a range of tealish blues & peach & my gown the Milana gown by Maggie Sottero in the champagne/gold. Not only are the shoes in our color, but their vintage style compliments my vintagey gown! Plus, the heal isn’t an overwhelming height so I won’t tower over my fiance 🙂 LOVE them!!

  52. I love the Auroral Vapor Heels for my soon to be wedding on July 25, 2012!! we can’t afford much so we are tying the note on the beach with just my honey, myself and the justice of the peace and then saving up to have a party next year with friends..these shoes would be great to have, I still have to get a dress that’s in my budget but to have these heels would be amazing, first off – who wouldn’t want shoes with their own wedding veil? they look gorgeous!

  53. the spirit of the moment heels are the shoes i would draw up if i could imagine a shoe that perfectly fits my style and our wedding. i just bought a feather fascinator from bhldn this week! all i need is a coup of a st. germain cocktail and i’d be set 🙂 i love them!

  54. You made my heart skip a beat!

    It’s a tie between Criss-Cross T-Straps, and Dimensionality Peep-Toes.

    Love them so much.

  55. I adore the Cha-Cha-Cha Heels! ) Would be that nice pop with a simple dress or the extra shine with a fun bright pattern outfit! I would be tempted to wear them all the time– jeans and a basic tee would never look the same!

  56. The Bow Tie Flats in Ivory are beautiful, but the Moonlit Peep-Toe pumps look like so much fun. Torn, but would probably need to go for the Moonlit pumps for some fun 🙂

  57. I LOVE the bow topped slingbacks! They fit my style perfectly! I love that they are sweet with the bow, but definitely elegant…They would fit in with my rustic elegance themed wedding in September fabulously!

  58. Love the Elopement Pumps, and I wore them for my wedding! I actually designed the whole color scheme around them and picked them before my dress, the location or anything.

    Here’s a picture! And here’s the link to them online:

    Although if I win I’d like to win a different pair because I already own these! There’s something delightful about these sparkly things:

  59. I am absolutely head over heels for the Gardenia Barefoot Sandals – I cannot wait to wear these for my beach wedding in May. It’s almost like they were made for me because they combine my foundation of elegant simplicity with my love of Gardenias. 🙂

  60. What an incredible giveaway! I’m digging the Cendrillon d’Orsays, fun and timeless 🙂

  61. The Heartstrings Heels are the obvious choice! I’ll be galavanting around Versailles on the first day of our honeymoon next month and I need a pair of sturdy heels to navigate the gardens and castle. They will go perfectly with my In Full Bloom Dress – not to mention the heartstrings on my feet will set us off on the right foot for our lifelong journey xox

  62. I absolutely love the Cendrillon d’Orsays. They’re perfect and very versatile. Perfect for my cousins wedding I’m attending in October.

  63. The Cendrillon d’Orsays are the perfect shoe in more ways than one! They add just enough sparkle to glamorize any bridal dress, and the silver tone complements any color scheme. I dare say that even Cinderella herself would covet this shoe. For a bride on a very tight budget, such as myself, I know that I would have a multitude of outfits to pair the Cendrillon d’Orsays with, from a dinner outing with my fiance (soon to be husband), to a night out with my girlfriends, and yes, even to the stuffiest of work meetings. 🙂

  64. This is so hard because BHLDN has so many pairs of cute shoes, but right now I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the Elopement Pumps. These gorgeous shoes can be found here:
    I just smile when I look at these shoes! I actually smile! Everything thing about them is wonderful- the color, the sweet side details, the white trim. Even the lining looks lovely. These shoes would look great with jeans, a dress, or a business suit. I could see myself wearing them out at brunch, when I go shopping, at work. I think they’d get a lot of use. I hope one day to own them!! I’ve already started justifying the price ($340/2 = $170 per shoe; wear them 20 times in the year that is $170/20 = a very reasonable $8.50 per shoe!!!).

  65. I love the Spirit of the Moment heels –

    No only are they adorable, but they are perfect for the girl who doesn’t wear much jewelry. I’m getting married this fall and have my “wedding jewelry” handed down and already picked out. So the shoes would totally add a spark of personality to a very traditional ensemble! Also did I mention that they’re adorable? Because they’re SUPER adorable.

  66. The Heartstrings Heels are the obvious choice! I’ll be galavanting around Versailles on the first day of our honeymoon next month and I need a pair of sturdy heels to navigate the gardens and castle. They will go perfectly with my In Full Bloom Dress – not to mention the heartstrings on my feet will set us off on the right foot for our lifelong journey xox

  67. I love love LOVE the CENDRILLON D’ORSAYS!! Such perfect little sparkly jewels. I love that they can be dressed up or down and they’re going to be perfect for my friend’s wedding in September!

  68. Wow, I think I just spent the past 30 minutes just trying to decide which pair I want to choose! My dress is also from BHLDN so I’m super excited about this contest!!!

    Ok, finally, I’ve set my heart on the Parisian Ballet Flats in Rose ( – I can’t get over how soft they look and how cute with the bow! It would be amazing to wear these on the day 🙂

    Best of luck to everyone!

  69. It was love at first sight the first time I came across the moonlit peep-toes! 128 views later, I’m still in love! I’m a bride on a budget and $300 is more than I can afford. Still, I just know that all that gold glitter would lend the perfect touch of glamor to our lakeside ceremony/indoor reception at a summer camp ground in New Hampshire. And since my dress is short, I’m on the hunt for a standout shoe. Since gold is a neutral color, I don’t doubt that I can wear these lovely peep-toes for years to come!

  70. Love the Moonlit Peeps for my big day coming up at the end of the month! Reviews say the glitter catches dress skirts, but with my 1920’s tea length gown, that wouldn’t be a problem. Against a subdued dress with geometric stitching rather than curvy lacework, these pumps would add just enough ‘oompf’!

  71. After long hours of reflection, I think my favorite bridal shoes are the Criss-Cross T-straps.

    They are so elegant – Satin and Ivory is the perfect combination of fabric and color I want for my wedding. They are both trendy and vintage-looking. They look simple but they actually have very sophisticated details. But above all, they look so comfortable to dance in all night! I am a dancer, and I must say that the shape really reminds me of tango shoes.

  72. The elopement heels are my favorite. I keep seeing them on brides and I love the old fashioned look!

  73. I have been wanting to buy the Sun-Warmed Silk Heels for a wedding I am going to at the end of the month but I am moving right now so finances are tight! It’s going to be a beautiful, summery wedding in Ohio and I am wearing a vintage 50’s, pale yellow, party dress that reminds me of Bye Bye Birdie! I’m going for Anne Margaret with a twist! I think these shoes will give the perfect punch of modernity and color my outfit needs. I also love that they can be worn with or without the strap- so clever!

  74. The Spirit of the Moment Heels are simply fabbbb-ulous. They were love at first sight.

    They are perfection in a pump. Heaven in a heel. What girl doesn’t feel beautiful and snazzy in tulle and glitzy glam accents?

    These shoes would be the PERFECT accent to my feminine and romantic, old-world wedding dress!

    Absolutely adore this blog! …Thank you!!

  75. The Cendrillon d’Orsays are my clear favorite. They are perfect for dancing the night away!

  76. The spotted sea heels are the perfect mix of sexy and demure. They’d be perfect for a night out on the town, or for a day event. And I looooooove the color.

  77. I absolutely LOVE the DIMENSIONALITY PEEP-TOES in nude or MOONLIT PEEP-TOES for my wedding.
    Hope I win!

  78. I’m OBSESSED with the elopement pumps. They are perfectly vintage, and still practical. Finding a shoe that’s amazing and comfortable isn’t easy. I’m wearing a tea length dress, so it’s very important to have killer shoes. And, I don’t want my biggest memory of my wedding to be how badly my feet hurt. 🙂

  79. I recently tried on my dream wedding dress at BHLDN. The Brocade Kitten Heels that I tried on with the dress were perfect. They made me cry. The combo of the dress and shoes is me as a bride. My finances are a bit tight due to moving across the country with my fiance who just started grad school. What won’t a girl do for love?! I would be forever grateful for the gift of shoes to help me afford my dream wedding!

  80. I absolutely LOVE these shoes. They are a perfect mix of classic and fun. It’s my birthday so wouldn’t it be nice if someone bought me a pair in size 6.5? I wish!

  81. I am smitten with the Criss-Cross T-straps. The sparkle would really compliment the light sparkle in my dress.

    Thank you for hosting this awesome giveaway!

  82. I love this shoe because one could never ever go wrong wearing a classic and that’s why polka dots always come in handy. BHLDN and Anthropologie always have a way to make the classic look like a timeless piece…a standout in every event but with the simpleness and humbleness a lady-like girl should have. That’s why I love this shoe…and if you are a classic girl like Mr and different this shoe gives it its umph! Here is the link:

  83. I 100% LOVE the Sprit-Of-The-Moment heals! So modern vintage and timeless! These heals would be perfect paired with my gold ivory 1930s inspired dress!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

  84. Absolutely L-O-V-E the dimensionality peep-toes! i think what really gets me is the gorgeous bow… you don’t find these on shoes often!!

  85. The Spirit-of-the-Moment Heels are like fireworks that light up your feet. And the spangled stars motif perfectly complement the Compass Rose Hairpins I already own. Sparkling in the night sky from head to toe!

  86. I love this shoe because one could never ever go wrong wearing a classic and that’s why polka dots always come in handy. BHLDN and Anthropologie always have a way to make the classic look like a timeless piece…a standout in every event but with the simpleness and humbleness a lady-like girl should have. That’s why I love this shoe…and if you are a classic girl like me and different this shoe gives it its umph! Here is the link:

  87. I 100% LOVE the Sprit-Of-The-Moment hees! So modern-vintage and timeless! These shoes would be perfect paired with my gold ivory 1930s inspired dress!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

  88. I have always envisioned myself walking down the isle barefoot, I want to feel the ground beneath my feet. The Parisian Ballet Flats are a wonderful, much more comfortable but equally whimsical approach to my imagination. They are playful, romantic, and will allow me to dance until the clock strikes midnight.

  89. Heartstring heels or the barefoot sandals! So gorgeous. My wedding is in September and it would be a dream come true to win them! Thanks for this amazing opportunity. xo

  90. I have been lusting after the ‘spirit of the moment’ heels, for so long… such charm and vintage appeal…j’adore! i mean who can not envision themselves walking to their groom in such beauties?

  91. The pink Dimensionality peep toes are to die for! I love the bow, the color, and the heel is the perfect height!!!

  92. I adore the Elopement Pumps! Their vintage style and robin’s egg blue color are perfect!

  93. As a lover of shoes, I can’t just pick one! I love the Blue Bowtie Flats, the flowery pattern of the Sun-Warmed Silk Heels, and the Girl-ishness of the Half-and-half Heels.
    So many pretty things…..

  94. Spirit of the Moment exude elegance and allure! The soft tones are demure and sophisticated while the elements of tulle and sparkle set a flirtatious, celebratory tone. I can’t wait to wear them as they peak out from the front slit of my BHLDN Swirling Platinum Gown in September 2013! My wedding day will be a dreamy fusion of many things, and BHDLN’s Spirit of the Moment shoes embody that dream….

    Spirit-of-the-Moment Heels (

    Swirling Platinum Gown (

  95. As a recent BHLDN bride I found perfection could only come in the form of the Hey Lady elopement pumps. It gives any ensemble the right touch with the beautiful Tiffany blue color set against gentle white waves that add just the right amount of femininen mystique. On top of everything, the name says it all because if you are eloping (like I did) then these shoes seem to fit the bill, wouldn’t you say?

  96. Dimensionality Peep-Toes are the perfect pair that you can dress up or dress down. The nude color will go with everything and the lovely bow adds a unique twist that adds a little flirt to your outfit!

  97. I have long been in love with the Elopement Pumps, , with those fun vintage turquoise scallops, and I think they would be perfect for any occasion.

    But I just found the Heartstring Heels and I adore them! They are the perfect shape; so sweet and vintage. And nothing is cuter than those little white hearts. I would love to wear them for my wedding, and every day after that.

  98. I am in love with the moonlit peep-toe shoes!! It would go great with my bachelorette party outfit 🙂

  99. The Criss-Cross T-straps are absolutely perfect. I’ve been eyeing BHLDN shoes for a while and these are one of the pairs that would look beautiful with my tea-length blush wedding dress. I love the metallic details.and that the heel isn’t too high. Simply lovely!

  100. Hi! There are so many beautiful shoes…it is so hard to pick just one favorite pair! I love these nude peep-toe shoes — the Dimensionality Peep Ties –so sweet and flirtatious! My fiance is deploying with the Navy right after our wedding in September and these shoes would be the perfect way to send him off, with a popped-toe kiss + these heels!! I am head over HEELS for these shoes! 🙂

  101. I love BHLDN, I live in Chicago and got my wedding dress from there, they are fabulous and so attentive! I tried on the Convert Manuscript heels and fell in love. I would die to have these for my wedding!

  102. It was love at first sight…I have been dreaming of the “Auroral Vapor Heels” for my wedding! They sit in BHLDN’s storefront in Chicago. They are a subtle mix between ballet-like, classic and vintage. It is love.

  103. I love love the sun-warmed silk heels! Those colors are adorable. And I love the kitten heel.

  104. I have coveted the Elopement Pumps forever now. They’re the perfect color for my wedding and so cute!!

  105. that’s a tough choice, but i think my favorites are the dimensional peep-toes in pink. they are so cute, and i think peep toes with slingbacks are the most flattering and comfiest type of heels.

  106. The pink dimensionality peep-toes are just lovely. I love the color, the shine, the bow! They would go perfectly with my short, structured reception dress!

  107. As a 6ft tall bride I would choose the bowtie flats in ivory, no extra height needed and they are lovely.

  108. I love the Auroral Vapor Heels. It’s so lush and unique and is perfect for the wedding day!

  109. I have been looking for a pair of peep-toe kitten heels–how great that the Brocade Kitten Heels have a little shot of orange, my favorite color!

  110. I absolutely love the Elopement pumps. They’re both elegant and fun at the same time : “chic” is the word!

  111. I absolutely love the Elopement pumps. They are both elegant and fun at the same time: “chic” is the word.

  112. I LOVE them because I have never seen anything like them anywhere ever and they are gorgeous. I love everything BHLDN but I don’t live near a store and there is no way for me to get a pair (I would be happy with any pair of shoes from BHLDN) and these just gave me a tickle when I seen them because of your lovely post. Then I tried to save the pic to pin it to pinterest and clicked back on the link and facebook and realized this was a giveaway…thankfully! Pleeease pick me! I’ll love you forever 🙂

  113. I absolutely love the Elopement pumps. They are both elegant and fun at the same time. “Chic” is the word.

  114. I adore the Elopement Pumps. I can just imagine that sweet teal color and pattern as an accent to any basic dress. It would be the perfect pop to a part and wedding, and I know my man would love them. What else could I possible ask for? Besides, I don’t own any colored heels, and have been oohing and ahhing over so many online for so long, but can’t muster up the cash out of my college student budget to buy any. This would be an amazing opportunity to embrace color and individuality without breaking my budget. I have to save up for my future wedding, after all. 😉

  115. These Cha-cha-cha heels are INTENSELY awesome. It’s the pop of color/pop of peeptoe/peek-a-boo panels/pompopm everything that pulls this “something blue” together and would make any lucky lady look like a pretty pretty – and glam – princess. Crossing my fingers and toes!!

  116. i’ve wanted the criss cross t-straps forever, mostly cause they remind me of my great grandma’s shoes that i loved as a little girl

  117. The elopement pumps are adorable nd I would love those so much they are super cute and match my theme and colors!

  118. From the moment I first saw the Spirit-Of-The-Moment Heels on BHLDN’s site I was in awe. WOW. These shoes are truly spectacular and quite the statement shoe. Simply magical. I would LOVE to walk down the aisle in these beauties. Afterward, they would be even that much more special to break out for future anniversaries or special occasions! They are waaaay to pretty (and versatile) just to wear one day!

    I adore so many of your sale shoes too! Such a huge fan of BHLDN!!!

  119. all of their shoes are so simple and beautiful, but the ivory criss-cross t-straps are my favorite. they’re so elegant, especially with the two-tone straps.

  120. My heart strings play for the Covert Manuscript Heels! It’s not just the color but the modern take on the bow that I fell in love with. I have just recently gotten engaged after 12 years of dating……yes, thats 12 years, and I am overwhelmed to start the planning process. These heels would be a great booster to get me started in the right direction! Thanks for the awesome giveaway:)

  121. As a professional dancer, my feet are very important to me! They definitely help shape my career. With that being said, I’m cooped up in either no shoes or ballet shoes most of the time. The days when I get to dress up are rare but so exciting. I would love a pair of these heels for my worn feet to look pretty in. It doesn’t hurt that they’d be a beautiful accessory when I’m dancing at weddings or attending fun occasions. Thanks Ruffled for the generous giveaway!

  122. Hands down, the Cendrillon D’Orsays – so beautiful, glam and timeless. Thanks to Ruffled and BHLDN for hosting such a lovely giveaway!

  123. As a professional dancer, my feet are so important to me. Essentially, they play a big part in helping shape my career! With that being said, I spend a lot of my time cooped up in either no shoes or ballet shoes. The days when i get to dress up are rare but very exciting. I’d love a pair of these supportive heels to help my worn feet look pretty. It doesn’t hurt that they’ll also be a beautiful accessory when I’m boogieing down at weddings or fun occasions. Thanks Ruffled and BHLDN for the generous giveaway!

  124. I LOVE the Spirit of the Moment Heels! These shoes would be the perfect accessory to many a dress, but they could also be the perfect outfit forming staple. I would definitely love to own these!

  125. I can’t decide between the Elopment Pumps and the Criss-cross T-Straps…I love the vintage charm and color of the E-Pumps, but the T-Straps’ sunny, carefree style would be perfect for my Boho-Cali summer wedding next year!

  126. I love everything BHLDN… I adore all of their shoes (in fact, I will be wearing one pair from them for my fall wedding). Right now I’m entranced by these sunshine yellow criss-cross t-straps.

    First off, they are the perfect height for me (my fiance is only a few inches taller than I). They are so bright, cheerful and very vintage. I’m sure I would feel very sunny and giggly prancing around in these beauties 🙂

  127. I love the Bow tie flats, I’m a big fan of flats and with a simple embellishment like the bow makes it perfect.

  128. I love the green Dimensionality Peep-Toes. I have been looking for some cute green shoes and they are exactly what I have been looking for! I absolutely love the bow and the color!

  129. I adore the Dimensionality Peep Toes in pink, and the Parisian Ballet flats in Rose for the reception!! Thank you for this amazing giveaway!

  130. When I got the first e-mail that Anthropologie was opening a wedding website I told my boyfriend, “now it’s time to get engaged, this is the last perfect thing I’ve been waiting for!” Anthropologie has been my favorite store forever and them opening a wedding website was kismet! A year later (almost to the day) we got engaged and I am loving BHLDN. I have my eye on the Covert Manuscript Heels as my “something blue.”

  131. I ADORE the Dimensionality Peep-Toes in Nude, they would go so well with everything in my closet and I love that they are so ladylike!

  132. For months I’ve been hunting for the perfect pair of unique, beautiful shoes to complement my wedding dress – an ivory, ruched and curve-hugging mini made by a local designer. The brocade kitten heels ( are stunning, but cost more than my dress did! The brocade is just right for bringing out the silver sparkle in the dress, and the gold ribbon has the warm, saturated color I’ve been hoping for! So lovely.

    I love the “spirit of the moment” heels! I have actually purchased the Victoria’s Reign gown for my wedding and these shoes would be the most perfect touch. The starburst shapes mach the star shapes that are repeated throughout my decorations. My fiance and I based our wedding off of stars because we’ve just moved to Alaska from Texas, stars are a state symbol in both states and remind us of the time we’ve shared together.

  134. I’ve been daydream about the elopement pumps for months now. Would love to wear them at my wedding this fall. They would be prefect for my something blue!!!

  135. Oh my goodness, so hard to choose just one! I think I would go with the Parisian Ballet Flats in Rose for wearing when my feet start to hate me after wearing heels on my wedding day!

  136. I’ve been looking everywhere for the prefect shoe to wear with my vintage inspired tea length gown. The criss-cross t-straps in Ivory perfect! It’s been hard to me to find a shoe because I’m a size 11 and also 6 feet tall. Its hard to find a shoe I can feel good in without towering over my groom. Please help me end my search!

  137. so so wonderful!! i totally am inlove with the perisian ballet flats and the deco laceups – all of them are of course stunning! how does a girl pick just one 🙂

  138. The Auroral Vapor Heels are amazingly whimsicle! Anyone who wears it will be the lucky one walking on cloud 9 with these beautiful and elegant shoes!

    I am also a big fan of the Spirit-Of-The-Moment Heels! Very vintage and elegant with a twist of bohemian style to it. It is the shoe of the golden once in a lifetime moment!

  139. I love the bowtie flats in blue. They are the perfect ‘something blue’, wouldn’t sink in the ground during our outdoor ceremony and they would be comfy to dance in all night long. And, they would be super cute with so many things after the big day!

  140. I adore the Spirit-Of-The-Moment heels! They would look AmaZing with the BHDLN dress I have my eye on for my wedding next year!!!

  141. I am LOVING the Elopement Pumps! They are the perfect colour to peek out from my vintage ballerina length dress. Gorgeous!

  142. I love the Starstruck Heel and the Gibson Girl!

    Both are so retro and fancy!!!!

    I would love to dress the Starstruck up or down.


  143. Okay, hands down the Spotted Sea Heels. So amazing I can’t quite put it into words. Perfect for a beach weekend here on Michigan’s Lake Michigan coast with my Mr. Man! Ah!

  144. I love the criss cross T straps. They are simple and elegant, but still have a fun youthful look to them. They could be made casual or dressy, and look comfortable. I love these because they match a laid back style but still give it an elegant, refined approach to fashion.

  145. Cant decide between the Cirrus T-Straps and the Gibson Girl Heels! The Gibson Girl Heels are just soooooo cute, but love how elegant the Cirrus T-Straps are!

  146. I love love love the elopement pumps!! I have been dreaming about them for my wedding day, which is on the 4th of November!!

  147. I love the Feather trimmed d’orsays!! It’ll totally go with my 1930s theme inspired wedding!!

  148. Be still my beating heart(strings heels)! Those shoes just make my insides flutter. I love the chunkier heel so you can dance the night away. C’est parfait!

  149. I love BHLDN so much. I think it totally embodies what I want my wedding and life to be like every single day. I am recently engaged and think the Elopement Pumps are perfect for all wedding festivities and the big day itself. And with their perfect blue-green shade, they could even be my something blue! They are elegant and fun at the same time, which is exactly what I want my wedding to be.

  150. I love the half-and-half heels. They are classy and understated. I also love the fact that they are high but look comfortable. I need some extra height on my wedding day, my fiance is 6’5” while I am only 5’4”!!

  151. Ok – so this was really hard to decide my 1st favorite shoe is the “Spirit of the Moment Heels” (, the spangled star appliqués are breath-taking!!! Second favorite shoe is the “Auroral Vapor Heels” I could totally imagine wearing these for my September 8th wedding coming up here in two months, I just love the tulle wrap-around 🙂

    My all-time favorite of the shoe collection would be the “Wreathed Laurel Barefoot” if you can consider this as a shoe?! The minute I saw these – all I can imagine is one very very sexy honeymoon I’ll be having in Bora Bora with my husband, wearing nothing but these and a gold brazilian bikini bottom!!!

  153. I love the elopement heels! I’ve been loving them since I first saw them! They’re a pretty robin’s egg blue and very girly.

  154. My favorites are the Spirit of the Moment shoes, because they remind me of old Hollywood.

  155. Love, love, love the Elopement Pumps…tiffany blue is my go-to color this season and the detail on these shoes is beautiful!

  156. The Gibson heels are pin-up retro gorgeous! A hidden platform that enhances a streamlined and undeniable feminine demeanor. The substantial base which will allow for effortless gliding down the aisle.

  157. BHLDN is an amazing/clever boutique. A good friend of mine (and a distant cousin of my fiancee) and her now-husband got married at our farmhouse and she wore the most beautiful dress from BHLDN!! I was forever hooked after she told me about Anthropologie’s sister store.

    We will be getting married at the farm next April and the Deco-Lace Ups will look fab with my 1930s vintage dress.

  158. I love love love the Half & Half Heels! They are so lovely!
