Guest Post: Wedge it

The day ballet flats came into style, I stopped wearing heels. If I have to wear heels to dress up my professional attire or a special occasion, my go-to shoe is the wedge.  Thank god the wedge is so popular these days! I can get the height, because let’s be honest the taller you are the skinnier you look, and they are a billion times more comfortable! So Kelsey gave me $100 to guest blog, to buy my very own pair of wedges and to blog about the experience. At least I think she is giving me money.  Here are my picks:

Gomax Frasia Wedge, - $29.99
I cannot believe this deal! I actually just bought these because they were such a steal.
Gosh, guest blogging can get expensive! But really, these shoes will go with anything,
and because of the color and texture they work in any season.

Nine West, Smooch, $48
Okay, I really wanted to buy these too, but alas they didn’t have my size! The shoe is
on sale at Nine West and Piperlime (I really did go hunting for my size), and I think it’s
the perfect mixture of summer and work attire with the cork heel and patent material. I
also love a nude shoe because it goes with almost anything.

Sam Edelman Randall, HSN - $69.00
I LOVE a cap toe on a shoe! These shoes retail for $140, and I have been eyeing them
on virtually every online store. They are on sale on the majority of the sites I look at,
but not as much as HSN, and they have the most sizes available! I think this shoe is
versatile with the playfulness of the espadrille heel and the polish of the cap toe.

Lands’ End Cara Wedge Closed Toe Espadrille, Lands’ End - $34.99
While wedges are in, so are sky high shoes, and sometimes you need something that
is more reasonable to walk around in. This shoe from Lands’ End offers an appropriate
heel for running around the city in the unbearable DC heat. They’re also a lot nicer
than a standard pair of flip flops. These shoes are perfect for sprucing up an a boring
outfit with a punch of color, since I wear a lot of navy, grey, and black. Also available in
white, black, and navy if the orange is too much for you!

Okay, that’s it for me on my first ever blog post! Kelsey don’t forget to send me that check. That is the deal right? Blogging can be expensive!


  1. I know you were thinking my comment was the "I love wedges" anonymous one, but it's not! Ha!

    Anyway, I have no experience with shoes, but I was impressed you found something on HSN ... didn't know people shopped there!!


Hey lovebug! Thank you so much for you comment. I just loved spending time with you and I hope you come back again soon! TCB.
