    Re: Shoes

    I like shoes with memory foam inside. Many brands to choose from....I actually like the $15 ones from Walmart. I also like Clark's, but the style I like is a clog....no back.

    Beautiful veil and only $68...heck of a steal. My niece paid $99 for a simple shoulder length one for her wedding in May. Don't think you will find the lace for less....then you have to make it.
