Thrifty Thursday: Miu Miu Cork and Leather Wedge Sandals for Less

Darlings, regardless of what you may or may not have been told over the years, wedge sandals are not merely a maybe or might when it comes to footwear and the fashionista; au contraire, kitty cats, they are of the utmost importance to one’s burgeoning collection of shoes. As essential to one’s year-round wardrobe as dripping ice cream cones, or funnel cake piled high with powdered sugar are to a day at the county fair.

But I digress; to put it in simpler terms, wedge sandals are the footwear equivalent to the diamonds adored so much by Marilyn Monroe…a girls’ best friend. They proffer the same sort of height found within your sophisticated stilettos; yet retain a splash of effortless, bohemian elegance that your pumps simply don’t possess. And no pair compares to the fabulous free spirited finesse showcased upon Miu Miu’s Cork and Leather Wedge Sandals.

Crafted out of a mix of supple brown leather and an earthy cork sole; Miu Miu’s Cork and Leather Wedge Sandals contribute a down-to-earth, folksy aesthetic to your look du jour which invokes thoughts of sing-alongs hosted shore side around the flickering glow of a fire, lead by a scruffy boy strumming languidly upon an acoustic guitar.

But no, it is not just the frame of mind, or hippie era that the Cork and Leather Wedge Sandals transport you to the moment you slip them on; the true piece de resistance of their grooviness, I’ll have you know, lies within their ability to lengthen your legs courtesy of their rich, yet natural tones – a characteristic destined to make any girl jump for joy!

Sadly no jumping – or leaping, skipping, and any other sort of behavior exhibited when excitement is in full bloom – will be taking place. For, while absolutely mesmerizing in their design, the $650.00 price tag which comes attached to these wicked wedges leaves much to be desired. Luckily Rosegold’s Women’s Casey Wedge serves up the same sort of style as their high-end counterparts for a fraction of the price.

While not the cheapest form of footwear on the block; for $168.00, you can have Miu Miu good looks at Rosegold’s ravishing prices!

Your turn loves…will you be thrifty or suckered into putting on your spendthrift cap?

Fashionably yours!
