80%20 Feather Wedge.
I used to shun the wedge because I had reasoned (The tagline of this blog is “Overthinking so you don’t have to,” after all.) that of all female shoe silhouettes, the wedge is the most prone to tipping. The wedge is a block of shoe, and by the nature of the shape of a foot, it is a narrow rectangle that has a high propensity for “pitching,” just like a poorly designed aircraft.
But, as you might recall, I saw these Alexander McQueen Puma wedges one day and then my life changed. So now I like wedges. And now I want the 80%20 Feathers. (I have also since learned that wedges provide more even weight distribution for your feet. Wedges win again.)
Miss Sixty Mirtle Dress.
Of all the world’s textile patterns, floral is not one I generally go for. (Also see: Leopard print, and how any variation of is the sartorial equivalent to dancing on your girlfriends at the club.) I’m also not of the camp that’s super stoked for the 90s revival that’s going on right now in fashion. Yet I saw this dress in Florence, and I thought it was perfectly pop-py without being overpopulated with poppies. I want to wear it with a black leather jacket and a big floppy hat.
Fortunately, I’m too short for maxi dresses so I cannot bring myself to pay $350 for something so clearly designed with a superiority complex for the vertically gifted.
80s Collection Malcom Sunglasses.
I look awful in wayfarers, so I’d probably look awful in these. At $12, though, they’re perfectly priced for a trendy buy.
