Yeah, I'm kind of obsessed with these wooden wedges

These handpainted wooden wedges from Etsy seller Saigon Socialite are giving me a very special kind of shoe boner. It's like, not only do they have this great organic feel with the wooden wedge, but then they also have these parrot-perfect rainbow wings? And you can pick the color of leather? And they're 100% handmade, so much so that they ask for an outline of your foot to produce them? GURGLE.

Gather 'round and let's enjoy some wedding wedges

Some of us get a little shaky on any sort of spiked heel, and wedges can be a great way to get an elevated heel without the ankle-twisting. In addition to being generally more walkable, wedges have the added benefit of being lawn-friendly for those of you having your weddings outdoors — no need to think about sinking up to your ankles in the grass.

This reduced shakiness AND improved grass-walkingness in mind, I'm going to round up some of my very favorite wedge shoes today. If I missed your favorites, leave a comment!

Friday freakout: wedding wedges

This week I'll be panting over wedges. I'm a huge fan of wedges because they give you that lift of a heel, without the stab of a stiletto (or even the wobble of a kitten heel). As always, I aimed for a range of colors (white wedges! red wedges! blue wedges!) and costs (from forty bucks affordable to zomg those shoes almost cost as much as my entire wedding budget).

Going up? Platforms to add a little height to your wedding day

I'm a sucker for a platform. Is it because I came of age during the height of the '90s club kid stacked platform fad? Is it because I love being taller, without being up on my toes? Is it because of all the colors you can cram into the extra square inch-age of shoe material? No clue, you guys… but I love platforms.

In this post, I've got everything from high heeled platforms to flatforms with almost no heel-height differential. You ready? BE READY.
