I got the shoes on Ebay. They're a retired style (Very Brode in blue suede) by Christian Louboutin. They're hard to find and pretty expensive (I got a great deal, and even so it was my splurge item), so if you're looking for a bunch of them, it's going to be difficult. These are a similar look though

They also have them in white.

Last year I was in Chicago and decided to go bra shopping. The girl there had me in tears trying to shove me into a 44 C in a horrendously unattractive style that made my breasts look like disgusting sagging lumps. A few months later I discovered a tiny boutique store, and got properly fitted into a beautiful 36E by Huit. I was over the moon I found my size, but when I got some 36Es from BCBG turns out their version of E is really a DD.

I can only buy European now, and while it's a serious hit to my pocket book, it's worth it in the long run to actually have a bra fit.

My mom does a lot of work with pastels, which is basically the same thing as chalk, and she always used Aquanet Hairspray to set her artwork. I haven't tried it, but assume it'd work the same :)

Yay for Ebay! I was looking for blue shoes. I had bought a few pairs that looked promising and hated them as soon as I put them on. These, I saw and *gasp* then just "WOW, these are my soul mate shoes. I must own them" Fortunately they were my size and absolutely perfect. I didn't wear them for the reception or after wards because it was raining and I hadn't waterproofed them (Blue Suede). They up now in my house as an object of art, at least until our wedding prints come in.

I don't see any reason why not. I used the metal because I wanted it to be magnetic, but if you're just using it for a chalkboard it should be fine. Make sure to check and see if that particular paint requires a primer (Some do and some don't). Also, make sure the mirror is a modern one. Antique mirrors are too thin, and can break with constant use. To find out, touch the mirror with a coin. If the coin seems to touch it's reflection, it's an antique mirror, if there's a gap, it's a modern mirror and is thick enough to be used.

Good luck!

DOH and I forgot. I had to limit the pics for OBB, but here's the link to my photographer's site:

And I'm sure you'll notice that there are programs there, even though I made a chalkboard to avoid the whole program thing. I did the programs (Made from leftover invite materials) the night before the wedding to make my mom happy.
