Debbie(mother of the bride): Anna got those at a boutique in West Monroe, called Kim’s Kloset. She told the buyer for the store what colors she wanted and when she went to "market" this is what she came back with. Anna loved them. There were matching bracelets also. I don’t know if she’ll remember what she ordered but here’s the phone# 318-807-0012. Who knows, maybe she can find them again and ship to you. Good Luck. 12.15.08, 10:50AM
