Thank you for the well wishes MU - I am, in fact, home from the hospital (came home Sunday evening so I got to enjoy the beautiful weather on Monday). I even went to work today, which was a challenge. But, I have to put my game face on since this week is a very hectic one as I prepare for my very first court appearance as a full-fledged attorney, representing my pro bono client in a pre-trial hearing in her divorce case. So wish me luck readers! Aaaanyway - back to the issue at hand. For the readers following along at home, here are the sandals that MU mentioned in her post.
Bandolino Anippe Wedge Sandal in rose gold from Zappos ($53.99 - there is also a gold version, but I love this rose gold one so I'm throwing it out there - there's only one of the rose gold left in size 10, so act fast!)
Dolce Vita Women's Helia Wedge Sandal in white at Amazon ($114.55 - if you'd consider white as an alternative to nude I think this is a very pretty sandal and the gold embellishments keep it from being boring at all.)
Donald J. Pliner Decimas wedge sandals in gold at 6PM ($89.99 - so since 6PM doesn't have reviews, I looked these up on Amazon and they have great reviews - but only two of them - and you'd be getting a good price, they cost $169 or so at Amazon.)
Aerosoles Women's Bakers Dozen wedge sandals in gold snake at Famous Footwear ($59.99 - I know not everyone is wild about snake prints but I like them since they add a wee bit of edge to an outfit. I also think the uncovered wedge doesn't take as much away from this shoe as they usually do - maybe because it isn't true cork?)
Aerosoles Women's Zenthusiasm in neutral at Famous Footwear ($68.99 - so this is another pair you might need to check my brain for but...I love the way they've purposefully taken a series of casual elements and put them together in such a way that, when paired with a dressy outfit would look, I think, appropriately formal. Especially for an outdoor wedding in the summer. And yet, on the flip side, paired with a denim skirt and a moto jacket on the weekends it could work with that too. These shoes confuse me - its like they're camouflaged or in deep cover. But, I like that about them. Anyway, might be worth a look see.)
Crystal Starlettos Heel Protector $14.99 per pack of two. Technically best reviewed of the lot, with four and a half stars, but only has seven reviewers.
Heels Above High Heel Protector - Clear $11.99 per pack of four but free shipping is not included as it doesn't qualify for prime. But with 38 reviews it has 4 stars - not half bad for something like this.
SoleMates High Heeler High Heel Protection $12.65 per pack of two. Comes in a glittery option - I believe this is the version I used at the aforementioned wedding - they worked well, though one got irretrievably stuck on the heel of the shoe (luckily the shoes weren't my favorites.)
Oh...and while you're here....you might as well think about entering the CONTEST which ends FRIDAY. That's is SO SOON. I mean really, if you are procrastinating on this, you're only hurting yourself. :-) So enter today! (Thanks for tolerating my contest announcements over here - I feel like public radio during a fundraising drive. But without the tote bags or the boring history DVDs to give away.)
