I solved my wedding shoes problem by wearing black pumps with this dress instead:
Except my dress was navy blue and looked better on me than it does on the model, because I fill it out nicely. Take that, ten-year-reunion.
And I read Till We Have Faces! But I'm still chewing on it. I was struck by Orual's refusal to allow herself to be joyful in any circumstance -- she's so shut into herself and her own loves that she can't open herself to happiness.
