10th Commandment: May 27

May 27, 2014

It’s a short week, so I thought I would pull some affordable shoes for the warmer weather months.  Because who doesn’t love an inexpensive, stylish shoe?

Nine West Mela Wedges ($79)

These wedges are a good alternative for pumps.  If you’re going to be campaigning this summer, your feet and ankles will thank you for the extra support.  And even if you’re just walking to lunch, the padded footbed keeps your feet happy.  These shoes come in a lot of great colors, but don’t miss the black patent and the patent leopard print.

In the under-$100 category, I like these snakeskin Maya wedges from Gilt.  If you’re looking for black, these Calvin Klein’s Sexton wedges come in kidskin leather and a textured version.  Looking for an open-toe shoe?  These Alfani wedges comes in several colors, as do these Nine West Relaxxin peeps.

    Lovely wedges. I loved reading your comments in this weekend’s washpo article and had a follow up question…do Jack Rogers count as flip flops? While not rubber, they basically are right? (I realize in horror). I work in an extremely casual office with no specific dress code and wore them all last summer but am now reconsidering. Thoughts? (and thanks!)

    I’ve always preferred flats to wedges. Wedges are still heels and make it hard on your feet. Flats have the same professional appeal while making it easy to get around.

    Loving the Clarks Purity Snow wedges I ordered last week from Amazon. I usually have a strict 3 inchish pump-only rule, but I can’t stop wearing these! Super comfy, surprisingly sleek, and only about 70$ in black.

    Wedges CAN add more support, but many (like the ones pictured) actually have a very narrow part that goes under your foot and on the ground. They are very ‘wobbly’ and make an ankle twist or sprain very easy.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
