I'll admit it. I've been obsessed with buying these shoes since I first saw The Possessionista featured a question about them on her site (Jennifer Anniston was wearing the cream colored variety) last summer, I believe. I searched high. I searched low. I searched everywhere in between. But when Dana (a.k.a. The Possessionista) said that the Stuart Weitzman Alex Espadrille was sold out? She meant it. So imagine my surprise in January when I saw the above shoe at my local Neiman Marcus? I was ecstatic! Thrilled! And I adored the new color! I then requested a pair in my size, tried them on, and was almost crippled with pain. My foot wan decidedly unhappy I had done that to them. So I left Neiman's dejected and flat, much like the soles of my shoe of choice that day.

Fast-forward to last week. I was browsing after a long self-imposed shoe and Amazon moratorium. I stumbled across THESE! What are "these," you ask? They happen to be The Steve Madden Fantastik Open Toe Espadrille. Since I know my size in Steve, I ordered a pair, along with a few others (a girl cannot have too many wedges for summer, no?).

Today, I wore them for the first time. My feet are in love. And more importantly, my bank account thanks me as well. You see, The Stuarts cost $365. The Steves? A smoooth $71.28! I picked up three pair of wedges that day, plus a mystery, for under $300!

I'm all set for summer!

These are too cute! I'd be afraid I'd break my ankle though.

These have been my go-to shoe all spring and summer. They are surprisingly comfortable and the ankle strap and sturdy wedge are not at all difficult to walk in.

This reminds me that I need to take a moment or twenty and update this thing! I haven't posted a read-book or fun find in months!
