Walking on Stilts…and Studs


During fashion week, a stylish, unique, bizarre looking shoe is key! Quite a bit of adjectives for a little shoe to fulfill, but it can be done! However, you don’t want your shoes to make your feet ache and wish to chop them off. Some shows require a bit of walking to and from, and forget about getting a cab, because there are so many people trying to get one, you are better off walking to your next destination. Well, the same day Lina bought her Emerald green gem, I found some WILD Sam Edelman Zoyla wedges dangling on the clearance shoe rack at Marshalls. Slipped them on they felt like angels! Didn’t hurt a bit! Just to make sure, I walked around the store shopping for other gems, with them on. Twenty minutes later, still felt like fluffy slippers. I yelled across the store to Lina and told her that they felt wonderful! Pretty sure I even jumped once or twice with excitement.

These 5 1/2 inch, leather studded, cut out, wedge boots were a fabulous addition to my fashion week clothing. I showed off these gems at a Vogue QVC party, the first night we arrived in NYC.

Have a look at the rest of my ensemble! The brightly colored top and jacket, paired with my liquid leggings and studded wedges was a perfect way to start out fashion week.

Quite a few people asked where I got my fabulous wedges and loud and proud I said, “Marshalls!”

These studded gems look just like mine!!

Clockwise: Jeffrey Campbell, Michael Antonia Studio, Givenchy, and of course, Sam Edelman!!

Kim Kardashian and Rachel Bilson love a studded shoe! Kim’s gems are by Ruthie Davis and Rachel’s are by the one and only, Christian Louboutin.
