Wedges seem to be quite popular this year – particularly when they are playing with bright colors, interesting silhouettes, or attention-grabbing embellishments.
Well, when I tripped across these embroidered Beverly Feldman slides on a recent inter-web window-shopping jaunt, I just knew that I would be sharing them with you.
These are cute, summery, and feminine. Made in a combination of earthy khaki and beige toned linen, these are topped off with a delicate, pastel-floral embroidery on both the upper band and the heel. I like them as a dressier, yet still casual, alternative to the ever-popular rope espadrilles that we see each summer.
And then, of course, there’s that whole soft spot I have for floral details – Oh, and that other soft spot for embroidered details. So, it’s not that much of a stretch to find that I would like these more than just a bit. However, the best part is that at a price under $200, while these are not cheap, they are much more budget-friendly than so many of the premium designer wedges we have already seen this season – Yet they are still unique enough that they will turn heads.

My weakness for floral details strikes again!
I love the simplicity of this minimalist silhouette that is topped with an extravagantly-jeweled, floral, toe-strap vamp.
If I had a kiln – oh, and a lot more free time than parenting normally allows, this is the type of metalwork as art-to-wear that I would love to be able to eventually produce.

Yes, I realize that Pantone released this press release months ago. But, mid-winter didn’t really feel like the right time to find the best examples of shoes in their 2011 ‘color of the year’.
The color in question: Honeysuckle.
Which, for those of us less picky about our nomenclature is a bright, vibrant, retro-80′s-trending, PINK!
The Alexander McQueen label continues to produce elegant, edgy, and occasionally, over-the-top shoes.
The prior McQueen shoes we have seen this spring have been firmly in the over-the-top category; what better descriptive comes to mind when looking at these gilt-adorned wedges?
However, the same basic, flowing, lines we saw on the McQueen sculptural wedges have been reduced to the bare essentials to produce a darkly-elegant court shoe:
These are, in a word: Lovely.
