When spring comes I struggle to find work shoes once I'm out of boots and before it is warm enough for sandals. I can't wear flat shoes because I am really short (5.2") and my outfits simply look wrong. Traditional heels look silly on me; I don't know what it is but they make me look like a kid dressing up in her mum's clothes.
So I usually resort to wedges which I find comfortable and feel balance my look nicely. However, I compromise on the shoes themselves as they're pretty much always ugly, even by my own admission. I end up wearing them anyway because of comfort and because I achieve an overall look I'm comfortable with, but the actual shoes are not nice.
I hope I'm making sense. So anyway. I would like to find some non ugly wedge shoes and I thought perhaps someone out here could help me.
Requirements: no cork or espadrille wedge, no sling back, no peep toe, not too narrow a wedge (slightly wide feet).
Ideally I would like the shoe to have a bit of a platform as well as a wedge. Budget? I don't care! I'll pay anything, not because I'm wealthy but because I'm desperate.
Thanks Imiss. Russell & Bromley are fantastic for summer wedges but they don't have anything suitable for this time of year unfortunately. Lots of cork and espadrilles. I actually don't mind the look of a wedge as long as it's not peep toe or sling back, I just know that no one else likes them!
