The Nighttime Wedge

I don't know about you all, but I'm a huge fan of Rachel Zoe. She's adorably funky and genuinely inspires me with her daring style and pretty red lipstick. Ms. Zoe just released her fabulous Excessorize list: 20 Essential Accessories, and of course the first thing out of those top 20 to catch my eye were the shoes! Rachel says (and I quote),
For the upcoming warmer months, every girl should have a pair of standout wedges. They will comfortably and stylishly take you from the office to out.Genius. This is what we need, girls! Think about it--this Saturday marks the first day of Spring, and what better way to kick off that sunshine than to treat yourself to some standout, nighttime wedges to walk you from cubicle to happy hour, without a hitch. Here you go!

Makin' it's way easily into Rachel Zoe's top 20 Excessorize list is this startlingly studded suede & leather wedge: Pour La Victoire 'Tula'. Wow, so much detail wrapped up in one 4" heel--the toe and side cutouts let in the style, while the gold hardware lets out your wild side! Effortlessly paired well with slouchy capris, wide-leg trousers or a sharp pencil skirt. Wicked, girl!

I know how hard it is to top those Pour La Victoire beauties, but I felt like I owed it to my readers to give you a few "runners up" that fit more within that summer budget. After all, if you've spent all of your moolah on vacations and mai tai's, then you might not have a few hundo to drop on one pair of wedges! I get it, I get it, don't worry, there are plenty of fish in the sea. For example... one of my personal favs, the Emma Pink 'Pepper' wedge. The numerous side cutouts and center seam detail make this pick uniquely stylish and fun to wear (and look super comfy too).
The dark and vampy Kenneth Cole Reaction 'Carpool Lane' wedge holds a soft leather look (although looks soft suede from afar, huh) bound together by a few studded details and a thin, flattering ankle strap. Definitely nighttime-wedge-worthy...aaand, under 80 bucks!

Next up, I'd like to introduce you to the magificently classic and versatile Nine West 'Entire' wedge. Truly a gladiator-inspired platform wedge, this 3 1/2" cork heel will give you that sexy spring/summer lift you've been waiting for! Can you say "meet me by the pool, margarita in hand?" I can!

Last but certainly not least, the Michael Antonio 'Harris' strappy wedge gives you instant, unpredictable height. Beyond doubt, you are one cute individual in these wedges: with charming buckles that wrap nicely around your ankle, and a dark wood platform that finishes off one spicy-hot nighttime wedge!
Look forward to hearing about your good times in the nighttime (wedge).
