Day 68: Natural High

Wood-ish heeled wedges

Wood-ish heeled wedges

Another pair of unearthed shoes from the bottom of the off-season wardrobe box. These are a few years old and are a tan wedge with a slingback and faux-wood stacked platform. The attraction of wedges, besides their walkability, is particularly in the summer they are generally more interesting than flats (except this years wildly embellished sorts) and not as much of a statement as heels. Casual neutral sandals that still give height lengthen the leg so are always welcome. This pair are from Ann Taylor Loft were quite popular on my feet when purchased but have been largely ignored since. Should they be taken out for a spin, or should these babies be left in the corner.


[provuh-nuhns, -nahns] –noun

place or source of origin: The provenance of the shoes has yet to be determined.

Date of Purchase: Spring 2005

Circumstances: I found these at Ann Taylor Loft on yet another lunchtime  work excursion shopping with Lori. We always divide and conquer when we shop together; she heads to the petites section, myself to the regular and the shoes, of course. Finding nothing of interest, I joined Lori in her scouring. I love shopping for others and helping friends shop for themselves and she and I have a very good shopping partnership. After finding a few things for herself we started heading to the checkout. I spotted these shoes, having somehow missed them earlier. The last pair, in my size and on sale. I like the natural color and wedge heel, so they were pretty much a no-brainer and were a staple that summer.

Compliment Meter: 1. Positive reactions in general. Comments on the shape of the peeptoe being a little square an therefore a little odd.

Comfort: Very comfortable and easy. Overall, an 8 out of 10.

Worn with: Sleeveless white tank trapeze blouse from H&M, Hudson bootcuts. 

Thoughts: “Oh my God! Do you know what these are? Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes! I thought these were an urban shoe myth!” ~Carrie Bradshaw

Do these babies stay in the rotation or get dumped into the Shoe Graveyard?
