Apologies dear friends for the silence.
I've been traveling, a trip which took in a friend's wedding. This was a wonderful day, which set me thinking about the wonderful world of wedges.

❤ Versatile footwear
Wedges go perfectly with a huge variety of outfits, including dresses, skirts, shorts, jeans and in fact, almost any trouser.
❤ Instant chic
Can't decide what to wear at a friend's party or another's wedding? Since wedges have been all the rage for a good three years now, it's safe to say you'll have no trouble putting together a fabulous outfit. Nipping out for a quick lunch date? Wear wedges and walk tall, oozing confidence.
❤ Easier to use
With its unified heel, it's easier to balance yourself on wedges. They're comfier than high heels because of the better support from the sole mass.

Wedges have been said to last forever. Admittedly, it’s not an everyday occurrence, but a high-heeled shoe is vulnerable. Heels sink into soft ground and disappear into urban grates, at which point they can easily snap. Wedges don’t. Unless you’re contemplating a spot of mountaineering, the wedge is a go-anywhere option.

It's official - wedges are safer to use than high heels. They are less likely to cause you to trip, twist your ankle, sustain nasty skin formations such as corns, calluses and bunions (yuk, I hear you say), and develop back pain.
*Wink* Take it from me who often see to patients with ankle injuries in the emergency room.

And so, back you to ladies...
