OK ladies, I’m back at it…this time it’s wedge booties. Thumbs up or thumbs down? There is something appealing about the shape and style of wedge booties but I can’t get over the clunky heaviness of the shoe. I worry that they will only style well with jeans and cords, and that they might only work for the under 20 set. Clearly someone is loving them because the Jolly has sold out TWICE on ShoeMint:
And these Manor Ankle Wedges from Elizabeth & James are softly calling my name:
I feel that 2012 is the year to (gasp) become a bit more practical in shoe choices. Something tells me wedge ankle boots are too trendy, and honestly, I’m getting a little tired of the super-high-platform-built-into-the-heel-just-to-add-more-height theme. Seriously, those of us over 5’6″ could start our own basketball team wearing some of the latest heels!
But they are really cute…and they might “ground” a floaty plaid maxi skirt…and they are on sale…
So…I’m putting this one out to you, our fashionable readers. Yes or No to ankle wedge booties? Leave us a comment and tell us your opinion. And if you have any great styling ideas, tell us those too!
