If you are very observant, you will have noticed that I am one item short of a full capsule wardrobe. Yep, I’m on the market for a new pair of shoes! I live in a country that doesn’t know cold weather, so no need for boots (although I love boots so much!). What I have in mind is a pair of brown chunky leather sandles – either a wedge or a platform with chunky heel. This is classic enough to outlast the trend, but on trend enough to update plainer items in my wardrobe.
I am totally in love with the YSL Tribute Platforms:
As seen on one of the Olsen twins:
Although I think I am even more in love with YSL’s Cognac Suede Tribute Peep Toe Mary Janes, so cute!:
But neither of them have the chunky heel I’m looking for.
Whereas these Stuart Weitzman chunkies (as seen on Leighton Meester) fit the bill heel-wise…I just don’t find them terribly feminine.
On the wedge front, these Prada brown leather cork wedges are perfect:
These Diane von Furstenberg “Opal” wedges are very design cool:
Wow, this is getting hard, so many lovely pairs of shoes!
These Mui Mui “Knot” wedges are gorgeous also:
Mmmm, what to do. I think it’s time to hit Dubai Mall to see what’s actually on the shelves and available. I’ll let you know when I’ve found the perfect pair!
