Love the blog and submitting yet another shoe question. I am getting married and want to wear a wedge. The only thing I've seen that appealed to me is the Jimmy Choo Tweak or the Steven Tippsy you just posted (it's a little low). I really would love a non cork heel and not to spend $700 on a pair of shoes.
Well, Reader ML, if there is one thing that will always get me interested, it is wedding shopping challenges. I love wedding shopping (especially for other people, I didn't enjoy shopping for my own wedding nearly as much...though actually...shoes and the dress were pretty fun). So - the Steven Tippsy's ARE pretty fun (but I understand the desire for a non-cork wedge ... though the tapered wedges are a bit more discreet). I actually HAD Jimmy Choo sparkle shoes for my wedding (not wedges but a kitten heel) and though my beloved fiancé nearly blew a vein about the price, I have never really regretted the expenditure (though mine did not cost $700). The Jimmy Choo Tweak wedges are lovely, though I'd worry they'd get uncomfortable by the end of the day. For those shopping along at home, here are the two shoes in question.
Marc Fisher Bulan Wedge Sandals in Pewter ($79 - might be a little dark, but they're nicely in budget.)
Lillian Glitter low wedges at J-Crew ($265 - a bit low I know, but pretty.)
Vince Camuto 'Zimily' Sandal at Nordstroms ($117.95 - I like the detailing on the t-strap here.)
Kate Spade Metallic Snake-Embossed Sandal at Bergdorf Goodman ($358 Gold; but so freaking pretty.)
NINA Manuela T-Strap Wedge Sandal with Rhinestone Accent ($99 - Not sparkle; nice and well within budget.)
Elie Tahari Zahara wedge in pewter at Elie Tahari ($315 - a bit pricey, but so pretty!)
Let me know what you think Reader ML. And if any of my lovely readers have any suggestions, leave them in the comments.
