ISO: A nice, classy black wedge.
Even though my usual go-to shoe apparel consists of flip flops, riding boots, winter boots (like Uggs), and the occasional sneaker, I do love the idea of having a pump in my collection. I have a few pairs of heels that I like, can comfortably wear for longer than an hour (old knee issues), and look stylish at the same time.
I was looking to add a pair of wedges. Something I can wear with jeans or dress pants, or a skirt.
In September, I went to the Nine West outlet store in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, found a great pair – but none in my size. WHOMP WHOMP. I checked the website – nowhere. DOUBLE WHOMP WHOMP.
So, I searched around various websites, looking for the perfect wedge at a perfect price. I checked the usual suspects: Target, Nordstrom. Even found a few online sites. Preferably, a patent leather…no suede.
Where can a girl find a sensible, round-toe black wedge at a price that won’t set me back?!
The journey continued. Until I saw this pair at DSW.
Problem was that I could only get them online (they weren’t at the two locations near me). I knew I wanted to wear them on Christmas Eve (I sang and read a selection during the service), so the search was in high gear.
Thankfully, I received a coupon a few weeks earlier for $20 off of $49 and I was able to use it and it absorbed the one-day shipping fees. I got the shoes early Christmas Eve. Woohoo!
They are adorbs.
Search over! 🙂
