These are the divine Michael Kors shoes I wore on my wedding day. My mom and I went and picked them out together - they were the first piece of my full wedding ensemble that we purchased outside of my gown. I carried that box home in a daze. I practiced standing in them, walking in them, just looking at my feet in them. They are, of course, ordinary shoes, but they've served such a magical purpose I can't imagine wearing them for anything other than a gala or an awards ceremony in the future. They've been elevated, so to speak. 

Mother held my hands I took my first steps and waddled toward Daddy. All these years later, she got me these shoes, and gave me to Daddy to walk me down the aisle, the most important steps I ever took.
