Fall may be bringing in a cold front but that doesn’t mean you have to give up peep toes and wedges. I’m a firm believer that open toe is A-OK for the cooler months. Yes, your toes might get a little chilly, but beauty is pain and a sexy pair of shoes can make it so worthwhile!
The DV by Dolce Vita Jude is a perfect example of why wearing wedges is appropriate even during the colder months. This 4inch wedged heel is sexy as sin. Criss-crossed to perfection over your instep with an adorable peep toe, these black leather wedges are hot, hot, hot.
If you’re a fan of detailing like myself, you’ll appreciate the zipper on the back of your heel. Not only is it useful for slipping into your shoes, but it also adds a sexier element to it.
What I Love
I’m seriously loving the wrapped platform and wedge heel. It has such a clean look about it. The criss-crossing over the instep totally completes the look.
I like to feel like I’m towering over people so obviously the height is on my Love List. Height and comfort are usually my two main criteria when buying a shoe.
It’s got the height, but does it have the comfort? Ding, ding, ding, we’ve got a winner!
The foot bed is padded just enough that in combination with the wedge heel, you’ll be able to sport these bitches all night long!
What I Loathe
Got a case of the cankles?
First I should start by saying “sorry about your luck” but now onto business. The ankle criss-crossing and zipper make this heel a little snug. If you’ve got ankles (or cankles) that err on the side of bigger, then this shoe is probably not going to be for you.
Because it’s leather you can always try my bad ass DIY on How to Break In Your Shoes though.
Also, because of the tight ankles and narrow design this wedge tends to fit a little smaller. Order a half size bigger than usual and you should be fine.
Work It Girl
Looking for some cute-girl style inspiration? Pair your DV by Dolce Vita Jude’s with a simple tee, belted skirt and comfy cardigan. Neutral colored clothing will let the design of the shoe pop
It may be after Labour Day but I say to hell with ‘em! Wear your fave white skinnies paired with a flowy long sleeved top and slip into your DV wedges. Simple accessories like these matching bracelets and cute clutch will complete this look.
Don’t let the weather dictate your look. I say show Mother Nature who’s boss and bust out all of your favourite heels, year round! Your shoes, and shoe lovers alike, will thank you for it!
So off you go, snatch em up, stomp it out, and start living la dolce vita!
