I'm not really a floral person. In most cases, I flat out hate them, but there are a select few florals that woo me. That said, I'm already coming at these Mojo Moxy "Petals" pumps with a heavy bias.

My roommate (on the right) actually wore the top until the zipper died, so maybe I wasn't quite as delusional at these other brides.
The pictures in "You Can Wear It Again" can be a whole lot of fun with a gabby group of girl friends. I plan to cover the pictures in snarky post-it notes and pass it to becca (who will not make me wear satin polka dots and a floppy hat) to do the same. When it makes its way through all our friends, we'll have a great collection of comments.
Just click with you want a better view of these horrors committed to fabric and friendship. Note to brides: It is unfair to make your sisters, cousins, and b…
