At some point in time I developed a purple fetish. Luckily for me, so did Marc Jacobs (he created numerous shoes in luscious shades of purple). I was lucky to score this wedge number from Zappos (back when they had REAL sales) for only $111 (about 67% off). They are sooooo comfortable, even with that 2 1/2 inch wedge (I usually don't wear anything above 2" high)--and they're very roomy at the top (they tie up with a string), allowing plenty of space to tuck in those jeans. They also have an Aztec-kind of ribbon trim at the cuff. Just perfect for a cold, slippery day like today.
