Last week we brought you a sneaker wedges Shopping Guide… but we secretly hoped you’d be pissed because they are hideous. This week we’re bringing you also-ridiculous wedge shoes but no sneakers in sight–instead, they are a riot of textures, colors and weirdness in the sub-$150 category. For those of you (like us) who tend to have a restrained aesthetic, sometimes a really oddball statement shoe can make an outfit look more deliberate.
Or… you know, just plain ridiculous. Whatever. Have fun. More
Okay, allow us to come clean: we think sneaker wedges are horrible. Absolutely dreadful. We first saw them at NYFW a few years ago and thought, “Those won’t last more than a season.” Aaaaaaaaand, we were super fucking wrong. But we still hate them.
However, the recent release of Daddy’$ Money–Sketcher’s take on sneaker wedges that sets women back more than a few decades–moved us to compile a shopping guide of alternatives. This way, no one has to support unbelievably sexist marketing/bad taste in the name of owning sporty horse hooves.
In a surprising twist, we found some of them kind of cute. More
In New York tomorrow for Fashion’s Night Out? We’ve rounded up some cool events to visit. If you strategize properly, you can collect enough tiny foods for dinner and enough free cocktails for a solid buzz. After all, if you’re going to meet Kim Kardashian, you might as well be wasted on complimentary Prosecco, right? Oh, and you can probably get some good deals and discounts on Fall items. Make sure to check back before you iron out your schedule completely–we’ll be updating the gallery right up till tomorrow evening.
A beautiful French friend told me that she’d read a study about the beauty buying habits of American women versus French women; she said that while American women spend the majority of their money on cosmetics, French women are suckers for skincare. I’m not sure of the exact study she cited (and 68% of all statistics are made up on the spot) but it seems to me the most crucial beauty investment a women can make is in the wellbeing of her skin. As fashion and beauty writers, we at TheGloss get to test and try a spectacular array of products, but these are the ones currently taking up our shelves. All the products herein are ones we use ourselves (and love). And though some may balk at the mention of high-end indulgences from La Prairie and SK-11, we also rely on a small army of super affordable drugstore buys from Complex 15, Purpose and Cetaphil. More
There are just so many pockets on this Alexander McQueen bag. I just want to put stuff in it…so much stuff. Stuff like my Alexander McQueen brass knuckles and skull ring, and the extra $3,000 I have in cash since I can afford to drop over $1,500 on this bag.
