Shoe Haul!

I bought these Elizabeth & James wedges (in black) last month and returned them because they were a smidge too small for me. I would've exchanged them for a bigger size if they still had it in stock! Boooo. :(

To replace the disappointing order, I found these Daniblack wedges (below) on Beyond the Rack (referral link). I check this website daily for great sales. They sell designer goods at a fraction of the price! New products & brands are uploaded daily and everything is on a first come, first serve basis.

For reference, I usually wear size 6-6.5 most shoes, size 5-6 at H&M (5.5 if they made half sizes!), and size 7 on very rare occasions. (Weird, right?) Let's just say I'm a 6-6.5 for simplicity's sake.

These peep-toe wedges retail for $225+ and come in a few different colours. The exterior is made of pony hair and it is just the SOFTEST material I have ever felt! I purchased these for way over half price, including shipping. The shoes are a little stiff at the beginning, but you just need to break them in. The sole is synthetic and feel slippery to the touch, but I haven't had a problem with slipping yet. I ordered these in 6.5 and they fit perfectly.

I purchased these wedges on clearance at The Bay. They're currently having a HUGEEE shoe clearance and I'm quite proud to announce that I only purchased one pair. ; ) These wedges come in a number of colours online, but I only saw this black pair in person. I think they're perfect for summer and they're actually my first pair of espadrille shoes! The soles have a nice grip so there is definitely no slippage with these shoes.

Everyone LOVES these shoes! People keep staring at them when I go out... and I even see people turn around and watch me walk away in these. LOL! I definitely don't regret this purchase. I'm not willing to splurge on my dream boots (Isabel Marant Dicker boots) right now, but I did find these adorable Chelsea* boots at H&M for $29.95 CAD.

* Chelsea boots are a style of boots that originated from the Victorian era. The boots have an elastic siding  to get rid of the inconvenience that laces often are.
