Miss Dressy is in town to visit, and while at the Outlets, I chanced upon these booties at Ralph Lauren for…. $24.98. But get this: I received an additional 25% off (clearance item) plus 15% off (special coupon I printed online).
I paid a grand total of $15.92!
I’m REALLY happy, because I returned these two other pairs of booties I have been considering.
Gotta LOVE this Ralph Lauren store, especially since I scored a new pair of knee-high leather boots a few months ago too!
So the gray Wedgetarians did not look so hot on me. I managed to snag a pair in brown from Amazon (and at $30 less!), and they turned out much better.
They meet my functional checklist but at this point, I’m still not 100% in love with them. I’ll have to test them out at home with a couple of different outfits and make a decision…
This year is shaping up to be rather Europe-centric for me, involving lots of walking on cobblestone streets and taking trains and buses. I started looking for something comfortable, practical, and more stylish than sneakers.
I chanced upon the Wedgetarian Lexi by Merrell, one of my favorite comfort shoe brands. I ordered a pair in grey via Zappos VIP:
They met my expectations and are super comfy, the grippy sole provides excellent tread, which bodes well for rainy / wintry streets. I’m confident that they won’t need breaking in! And though the wedge looks high, I can hardly feel that my feet are elevated.
But…. the downside is that this “rhinoceros” grey really stands out, and looks too stark against my usual palette of dark clothing in general. Oh, and these wouldn’t make good ‘airport’ shoes, since it takes time to lace & unlace them.
I’ve just ordered the ‘Dark Earth’ brown version, and most likely will return these. Stay tuned for updates!
I tried on a pair of ankle booties yesterday, my first attempt ever. I think they look nice with the bootcut jeans, but I couldn’t envision myself wearing them with skinny jeans, skirts, nor dresses.
