Afternoon my beauties! Kickstarting the week (a little late, but better late than never!) with a little covet list for you. I think these types of posts are nice little ways to show my current taste and style, as well as a perfect way to get outside opinions on what I could splurge on next. I'm guessing you all know that I'm planning on buying a Nikon D3000 or D3100 - still undecided as ever - this Summer. While I now have enough saved up for my new baby(!!!) thanks to working meticulously almost every day until midnight, I think I can put off that huge purchase and treat myself to a sweet new pair of wedges? Right?

Hannah, from Away with the Fairies, Tweeted about the first two pairs at the weekend, and I immediately saved the link to my favourites. At £35.99, I suppose they're not too overpriced, but I'm a tiny bit unsure about the quality at Missguided, having never shopped there before. Currently very tempted to overlook this and purchase a pair: the big question is, black or cream?

I'm quite a big fan of these rust/coral coloured Hailey wedges too. I'd probably pair them with any outfit on a night out, seeing as I pretty much live in black when out! Not sure how on-trend the colour would remain, however, so I'm quite skeptical. Also added a few pairs of summery wedges into the mix. I'd quite like #6, the orange printed sandals from River Island, which have a lovely 50's pin-up feel to them, and I do "need" a new pair of summer shoes!

In homage to my beautiful girl Alana, who writes XOXO AVS, I had to have a peek at the Kurt Geiger store. Mistake and a half! How beautiful are the Gilby wedges?! Although I'd imagine they'd be impossible to walk in, I think they'd look perfect with the sheer twist maxi skirt I featured in Look Two of this W2W feature. Gah, why must shoes be so expensive?

What is the consensus on wedges on here then? Shall I buy the black or cream Mariette wedges? Or shall I save my money and spend it elsewhere?

  2. I love the wedges from missguided, I would go with the black ones, but I like black far too much, they could work for a edgier look but still look sophisticated, the cream ones are really nice too but I can tell they'd get dirty easily. I love the coral wedges too, they look perfect for summer.

  3. wedges are looking so hot right now!! I saw an absolutely gorgeous pair back in march in New Look for only 25quid and I SO wish I'd brought them they were gorgeous! I do love the missguided ones but picking between those colours is gunna be tough!
    The ones I'd like at the moment are on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Wedge-Heels-Platform-Back-Zip-Sandals-Shoes-UK-2-6-S027-/320674939507?pt=UK_Women_s_Shoes&var=&hash=item76c0113fbe but I'm a little sceptical about how good the quality will be if I get them off ebay :S

  5. Kat: Aaah thanks for the link sweet! Will have a nosy on there this afternoon (: Thanks for the recommendation! xx

    Khaz: I'm a huge fan of black as well, the cream ones are gorgeous though. I think the dirt issue is what's holding me back! x

    Laura: Me too! Kicking myself now haha! Oh those are gorgeous! At the moment I'm still tempted by the cream Missguided wedges eeeep :/

  6. My favourite is the Hailey pair, I just think they are so gorgeous, but they're so high, and I'm sooo tall (5"9/10) that I'm too scared to wear really high heels:( (I will quite literally be a giant! I can still lust though?

    Ooh I can't decide between the black and cream! I'd probably go with black just because I think they wouldn't get dirty and would probably be more practical... but I loooove the cream (so helpful!) xxx

  7. I love wedges, I'm not skilled at 'heel walking' so wedges are my god send. I love every single pair, but the coral/peachy ones are my fave <3 xoxo

  8. Ahh this post came in perfect time Michelle! I bought a lovely cream dress (this one - such a bargain!) and have been trying to find a pair of nice bright wedges in either an orangey colour or a bright bluey/teal. Those hayley ones look perfect! I also LOVE the cream ones. I have a pair of creamy/beige suede peep toe style ones from New Look and they actually don't look dirty at all, my black ones on the other hand... ugh! I think you should defnitely treat yourself to a pair of wedges though. A girl always needs new shoes... and they are really well priced compared to RI/Topshop etc!xx

  10. It's a shame that I'm not really a heels kind of girl as these all look so pretty but I just know I could never walk in any of them. :(

  11. The third ones I beautiful. But then again if I could I would buy them all.

  12. I really want those fantastic Kurt Geiger ones - damn already having bought a pair or wedges for the summer!

  14. 1,2,3 +9 would go down nicely in my wardrobe I think!

  15. I love the coral ones from Missguided! Out of the black and cream ones though, I'd say go for the cream ones - take advantage of the fact you don't have really pale skin and can pull off that shade without looking like a milkbottle or risking it with the fake tan! Saying that though, you would probably get more wear out of the black ones - but perhaps not wearing the cream ones as much will make them last longer as I've found the price reflects the quality in past Missguided purchases. Let us all know what pair you decide on! XX

  16. Tass: I like the black pair too, so classic and versatile. I wear a lot of black tights though, so am still blimmin' undecided! Aah I've seen some gorgeous wedges from Topshop, don't fancy paying the prices for them though! xx

    Hannah: The Hailey pair are beautiful! Such a nice colour! Oh I'm only 5"1 so the higher the better for me really ;) Thanks for your input sweet! xxx

    Natalie: I've mastered walking in heels now, but wedges are a must when it comes to nights out or being on your feet for a while (i.e. when you run out of money for taxis and are forced to walk!). Eeeep, thanks for your opinion! xo

    Charlene: :O That dress is bloody stunning! The Hailey shoes will look lovely with it! Haha black suede really doesn't keep well at all, I have black suede shoe boot heels which look gross atm ;) Going to whack up a tally chart and decide from there, I do really want a new pair of wedges. xx

    Stephanie: (: Thanks sweety! xo

    Cherry: Wedges are much easier to walk in though haha ;) I haven't bought a pair of heels/wedges in over a year now, I'm so proud of myself. xx

    Amelia: Oh me too haha! Can't decide which ones to get at all ):

    Rachel: Blimmin' KG eh ;) x

    Katy: Thanks for your input lovely! xx

    ReplyDelete
  17. Sarah: I think so too ;) Thanks for your input lovely! xx

    Charlotte: The coral ones are so gorgeous! They'd be quite summery though? Aaah I just can't decide, I have "too many" black heels already, but the cream definitely wouldn't last long on a night out at Uni! xx

  18. I have an idea for your money. You should buy ME some wedges, hahaha!

    It's a really tough decision as black are quite universal but the cream ones are so in this year. But I'd probably go with the black ones, more timeless :)

  22. you are just the loveliest! :) thank you for the comment on my blog! Personally I love the cream but as pointed out in a few of your comments they might get dirty really quick! The third shoes are a wonderful colour and i just love the kurt gieger ones! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  23. Those cream ones are amazing & i have been lusting after a pair for ages! However being 5'9 i'm always a little nervous to get them. I'll probably cave if i see some as lovely as these :-) x x

    ReplyDelete
  24. Meg: Haha I don't think so ;) Mm I'm still dithering, leaning more between the black and the coral now just for the practicality though. xx

    Angie: Thanks (:

    Courtney: Oh I love a good pair of wedges! xx

    Laura: Haha goood :D Oh me too, I think they look so nice too!

    Patsy: Aw you're welcome lovely, I hope you're okay <3 Mm that's my only worry, especially on a night out (: I might just have to plump for the Hailey wedges y'know! xxx

    Jen: The cream are beautiful, aren't they?! Aw I think you should 'em if you want them (: I'm only 5"1 so the higher the better to be honest! xx

    ReplyDelete
  25. I could have them all !!! Specially 2 and 3 ;)

  26. Wedges are a must for summer!! I got mine from Primark because unlike you I have not being the best at saving up money :)
    Of all the wedges I like the cream Misguided ones, and if you're unsure about the quality you can always order then send 'em back?

  27. I do love both of the Miss Guided pairs! I have also never purchased from there before. I was once going to buy some other shoes but never made my mind up before they sold out and now I regret it!

  28. Oh, i just love wedges so much! Especially 3 and 8. I would totally go for black if i were you though, they still work for summer! I have black and i also have a nude pair, and I hardly ever wear the nude pair. Although i guess it depends on your style :) xx

  38. You know, prior to about 3 weeks ago, I would have never considered getting a pair of wedges, but I am seeing so many gorgeous pairs out there, that I too may have to cave in and finally get a pair.

    Of the Mariette wedges, I really like how the cream look, so I would say those. But I also really like the last black pair (#9), so I would consider those as well! But dang, those coral ones are absolutely gorgeous as well. TOO MANY CHOICES!

  39. i like wedges! i cant be much of help because i'm super indecisive. black always seems to be on the default to be more practical compared to ANY colour. but i like the cream ones better. ..and #3 and 7!

    wow, i just noticed how high the platform is on the majority of these wedges. like double the height of "normal" wedges

    ReplyDelete
  40. ahh i want the first three pairs, wedges are my favourite shoe, height without the pain really.

  46. Ooh! Those wedges are amazing. I love those black wedges. I always have such a hard time deciding when to save and when to splurge! But shoes are always so fun to splurge on!
