Just like every other 20 or 30-something out there, when spring rolls around I start to panic about getting a tan, losing at least a little weight, toning up and getting together your go-to wedding guest outfits. I feel like the Vince Camuto dresses I wrote about will cover it for daytime weddings (still looking for the green one... you will know if I get my paws on it, and get the scoop on if it is as good as I think it will be), so now I am just in need of shoes and bags.
For the shoes, I know I want a wedge. Why? Because this is for wedding attire. What do you do as a wedding guest? You drink. What do you do after that? You dance. So, while you need the gams to look good by wearing a heel, you also need steady footing: enter wedge.
I have had good luck with Michael Kors shoes for dressy occasions. They are high quality, sometimes comfortable, and while they are not cheap, they are far more affordable than many other options out there.
So, in the battle of the Michael Kors wedding guest wedge, we have 2 contenders:
The 'Damita' Wedge Sandal and the 'Josephine' Wedge, both available through Nordstrom.
Honestly, I love the look of the Josephine much more for a wedding, but when I tried them on it was basically torture. They were so uncomfortable to even stand in, that they had no chance for being a viable wedding option. With zero give in the leather, these went right back into the box and back to Nordies.
While the Damita is definitely a more casual look, it fits the criteria for a daytime wedding, and will be used for such occasions. It has the right amount of give to provide comfort, while also properly holding the foot in place for some serious dance floor action. I see a lot of embarrassing moments in my future... #NOTSORRY! These get the #dbsobsessed seal of approval.
For black wedges, I will stick with the DVF Sunny Wedge. I got these babies about a year ago, and I love them. I'll wear them, but not if I have to walk, because they barely hold your foot and are narrow as a stick, but they look SO.DAMN.GOOD.
