  1. Great post! I saw sooooo many wedges when I was in NYC for Fashion Week. It hasn’t really been my style to date but there are so many cute versions out there I kind of want to try it now. 🙂 Thanks for the great examples!

  2. Honestly, I’m not a fan of wedges, but some of those in the pictures are beautiful, especially the first and the mint coloured with studs.
    By the way, great post!

  3. Adding on, to match these dresses you can also find accessories such as belts, neck-pieces, stoles, earrings and many more. No outfit is complete without accessories, so you pretty girls; please dont ignore ornamenting your attire.

  4. Thanks for this post Miss Sassy!
    Unlike many other bloggers, I had a real balancing problem with my feet, usually tripping over myself. So I avoided wearing heels altogether, sticking to flip flops. In fact, it was my resolution to start walking (and dancing) in the heels, this year. And when I gave it a real try, wedges in all their varieties and forms, came as my sole comfort. Two months with comfy wedges, I feel more confident. And even now when I’m ready to move on to stilettos, I’ll always treasure my wedges.

  5. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this
