The first item on the list of rare items I would rather enjoy talking about are the Vans Wellesley Hiker Boots. Before I was able to acquire these lovely shoes I had always had an eye out for them. It wasn’t so much the fact that they were shoes (because lets face it… I am obsessed with shoes), but because of how they were portrayed in Breaking Dawn part 1.
I know that must sound a little odd, but for some reason, the outfit Bella wore in the scene where she was practicing in her Manolo Blahnik wedding heels just seemed to come together in such a different way when she slid them back on. It really transformed the outfit, bringing it from a bit too clean and neat for Bella to girlie with a tiny bit of rough around the edges (which is what I adore most about Bella’s wardrobe).
Actually sliding your feet into these shoes isn’t as difficult as it may seem (Kristen Stewart did a great job of demonstrating this in the movie.) The laces are easy to loosen, and true to a boot design, you don’t necessarily have to lace them all the way up.
The actual support of the shoe is not the greatest. Some people may find they need to add inserts. Sizing however is spot on and true to size!
The color is actually very interesting to behold in person. Where you can easily say it is brown, the color goes much deeper than that. It is a cool reddish-brown, with slight undertones of blue, making the color come off as a cool burgundy color in certain lighting.
The cream-colored stitching and bottom of the shoes and the red and burgundy from the laces complement this complex melody of colors, and ties it all in.
These skater shoes still live up to their reputation of being hard to find. Ebay is a great place to look. Even though they hardly pop up, vans offer great alternatives as well. Other great places to check are Bella Swan clothing Facebook pages. A lot of collectors post what they are selling so they don’t have to deal with eBay!
That’s it for now! Happy hunting!
Hello everyone! I wanted to take a moment and post about the event that started it all. If you frequent this blog, then the Stephenie Meyer Day events are no stranger to you. For those of you unfamiliar with it, This 3.5 day festival takes place in Forks, Washington, and commemorates the author, and celebrates everything twilight. From tours to vendors to twilight events, this celebration is held throughout the whole town, and definitely gives you your twilight fix!
The reason I hold this festival so dear to my heart is because I along with many others participate in the Stephenie Meyer Day Cast. That’s right! Stephenie Meyer Day has its own cast that participates in events and takes photos with the guests! This year the Stephenie Meyer Day cast has many of the characters you are familiar with, and they are very eager to meet each and every one of you, but I wont spoil the surprise just yet!

Stephenie Meyer day is such a fun weekend for a family with all ages!
Finally, after all the anticipation, guessing, and the occasional trying to find leaked photos, we have seen Bella’s wedding dress! Great news to all us twilight fans out there, the dress has finally been released and is now being sold to the public!
The original dress worn by Kristen Stewart was designed by Carolina Herrera, and would retail around $ 35,000 – LUCKILY, Alfred Angelo released a replica of the dress for $ 800.00.
To see the replica worn and modeled, and to hear more about the dress, click here to watch the video!
Moving on to the very beautiful shoes. Bella Swan was seen wearing the most elegant pair of white satin pumps. Alice had really outdone herself with these.
Costing more than replica gown, these replicated, swan embellished Satin pump Manola Blahnik shoes cost $1,295.00.
PLEASE NOTE! – Thank you to Maria, the shoes are said to run a half size too small!
Happy Wedding Shopping!
A bathing suit? No problem! Banana Republic sweater? Sure, why not! A Belstaff New Greenford Blouson Lady Jacket?… PARDON!?
It’s blatantly obvious that with the anticipated wedding of the century, it wouldn’t be friendly to our bank account as we take into consideration the top secret wedding dress Mrs. soon to be Cullen wears to meet Edward down the isle to finally say “I Do”. Though it was announced Alfred Angelo will be re-creating Bella’s dress in time for the premiere, it’s not expected to come cheap!
In this scene alone, Bella Swan is spotted wearing the Belstaff Jacket, 7 For All Mankind Skinny Second Skin Jeggings, Vans – Wellesly Hiker Skate Shoes, Manolo Blahnik shoes, with custome design and beading believed to be by Carolina Herrera, The James Perse Contrast Panel Shirt, and a beautiful dainty new four leaf clover ring.
taking certain things into consideration, like the custom design shoes, This single outfit comes out to around $2,000.00!
Before you take a second mortgage out to further your Breaking Dawn wardrobe collection, you should know you CAN rest a bit easier. Our very lovely and reliable NECA has already released prop jewelry, that can be found at your local Hot Topic store, or at Hottopic.com (I know i’d be horrified to learn how much the real necklace Aro gifts to Bella really costs!)
If you hurry, you can get 50% off your second item of purchase!

ITS TIME ITS TIME ITS TIME!
Here is a whole bunch of photos taken of Edward and Bella! – rumored to be on set and filming!
PLEASE NOTE! – Our Alice has spoken to Summit and they claim the dress Kristen Stewart is wearing is a “One of a kind vintage dress” as of right now we know nothing is the original! (Thank you Alice!)

My guess is that the dress whas a “Honey Moon” dress Alice packed for Bella.
