Like many girls and women, I have a thing for shoes. I love them. If I see a pair I simply cannot live without, I snatch them up. Most of the time. When I do decide to pass on a pair I really love, for whatever reason, I think about them almost obsessively. When I can't get them out of my head, I know I need to have them. Sometimes I'm too late and I never get the chance again, but sometimes I do. If by chance they present themselves to me for a second time, I take advantage of the situation and assume it's meant to be!
Once or twice a week I get another Victoria's Secret catalogue in the mail. I know I've mentioned VS on a couple of occasions when I talked about my boots and my pants, and I've bought a great deal of clothing from them. I'm pretty sure I should have invested in their company. I practically support them! Anyway, when their spring shoe selection came out, I nearly drooled as I flipped through the pages. I was suddenly introduced to the glorious shoes of House of Harlow 1960.
|Veronika Platform Wedge |
Also available in Black, Black and White
One of my personal favorites.
Like with most brands, I don't love every single item within the line. So, there are some shoes that just aren't "me" and that's okay. Here are some of the wedges and a few other styles I found online.
|Open-Toe Studded Wedge|
Another one of my favorites! I could wear these shoes with so many things in my closet!
|Violet Espadrille Wedge|
Also available in Black, but definitely cuter in the neutral tone.
Perfect for everyday wear!
|Cut-Out Platform Wedge |
Not my cup of tea, but worth showing nonetheless.
|Nell Open-Toe Pump|
Love the neutral tones!
|Jeweled Strappy Sandal|
A wear-anywhere flat sandal that'll jazz up any plain white T and jeans ensemble.
|Black Beaded Maddie Fold Over Moccasin|
Super cute to wear whenever! I'd love to add these to my shoe collection!
|Sydney Peacock Sandal|
Practical and versatile. I'd prefer to add a peacock feather to a pair of my own sandals...it'd be more economical!
While I enjoyed fantasizing about wearing these towering wedges and some of the others, I cannot vouch for how comfortable they are since I haven't walked in a pair. I can tolerate some discomfort, but if I can't wear them for more than a few minutes, they just aren't going to make it into my closet. Though I don't quite reach super model heights, I am fairly tall, but I still love to make myself just a few inches taller whenever I have the opportunity. Many of these wedges are 5" at the heel and 1 1/2" at the platform. I can certainly handle the heights. The question is, can you??
