Wedged...

Out in Yorkville again to take in some much needed shopping therapy. As always, when I walk by a shoe store I know I shouldn't go in. Number one, I don't have enough money to afford lovely shoes right now, and number 2, my feet are huge! So disappointment usually ensues upon browsing. But not today! I found a pair of Dolce Vita 4.5" wedges (pictures below) on sale for only $100. And they fit!
sunnies: Rayban Wayfarers * t shirt: Urban Outfitters clearance * skirt: FCUK * purse: vintage thrifted * shoes: Town Shoes

The only problem is they are kind of impractical and make me 6'2!
SHOULD I BUY THEM?

lalaliu said...

those shoes are mighty fierce! I think you should go for them if you really like them and will wear them. I can already imagine all the outfit possibilities :D

michelle said...

They are cute! If you think you would wear them or you don't mind the increased height, I say go for it and flaunt them! :D

Love that t-shirt, it's awesome! Annnnd you soooo have to buy those shoes, they looks super!! And 6'2 would be pretty cool, you'd look wonderful, I still have an inch to grow to get to that height!

Wendy said...

I like the wedges so I say buy them.

KiKi said...

they are cute but at 6'2 I would be afraid of my own self if that makes any sense(I am very afraid of heights)

steelcloset said...

$100 is taking a big hit. I look at the shoes and think uncomfortable. But 6'2 is kinda sexy and intimidating. Wooweeeeee!!!

lovely skirt! oh, and yes buy them. they'd go with everything. p.s. i don't enlarge my pictures, i shrink them. my camera is a mutant. :\

Velveteen Rose said...

If you really like the sandals and think you will wear them, then get them! I adore the skirt you are wearing; it really pulls the outfit together. :)

Shen-Shen said...

Don't fewer people have large feet? And if fewer people do, doesn't that mean that there are more sizes available for you?

marie said...

i looooooooooooooove your outfit and those wedges are really cool

Nay'Chelle said...

Nice tee and you hsould go for the shoes! Who cares about being 6'2 you can indulge your inner glamour model.

Ash1314 said...

6'2 ....man I WISH...I say go for it,,I have a similar pair that makes me almost 6'. I love them...and that way I don't have to hem all those extra long jeans... haha... maybe we passed by each other downtown...I was also in the area..

chauss said...

be confident. if you feel good in them, you should get them! i wear huge heels most days...:)

The Clothes Horse said...

Oh, as for tiaras I have 3 now. One with shells, one with beads, and then the leaf one. The first two are from Chicallure and they slide around a lot--not very good at staying on, but the leaf one fits like a glove--it has a very malleable wire inside that helps it adjust.

Farren said...

6'2"! that is insane! being a diminutive 5 feet i am immensely jealous of your height. go for it and own your height in those sandals! seriously!

Honeymoon said...

I love this. The photos, the poses, your outfit. ♥ Great job! Ps: those shoes are cute, I would get them if I could find them online... And thank you so much for your comment, dear. I sometimes worry about headbands causing me the "mushroom head" look, but I STILL love them. ;)
