Shoe-A-Holics, as I continue to be spoiled with this extraordinarily warm weather (82F/28C), I shall continue to blog about the remaining plethora of sandals in my Shoe Arsenal (okay, so there may not be that many sandals left to wear, but I still have quite a few that I didn't get to this summer); and hands down, these are one of my favorites!
WARNING: These wedges are not for the novice shoe collector! At a staggering 5.5-inches, if you are not what I consider to be a Professional wedge-wearer (those of you that can manage a 4 to 4.5-inch wedge), then you made have to proceed with caution when slipping into these slides.
DISCLAIMER: These shoes will provide you with the illusion of height. For all Professional wedge-wearers throw caution to the wind! Go forth and strut your stuff in these wonderful wedges!
Baci a tutti!

How I Styled It?
I love sky-high wedges paired with a maxi dress! Why? Floor-sweeping maxi's are a dressing staple, used to create an incredible amount of height (even though it's only an illusion) in those of us who are vertically challenged. But the problem with the floor-sweeping maxis is that they sweep the floor! I have never been one for a dirty look, which I have seen on many a women who love the style, but have not mastered the look. That's where these 5.5-inches of wedge come in; not only giving me height, but enabling me to pull off this amazing look! The dress is from Blue Asphalt (several years ago), the belt I borrowed from a dress by Donna Morgan and the wooden bangles I bought at a couple of markets in Sicily. SN
