WE ARE ALL MADE OF STARS

The unique charm of wedges is totally underestimated: many women use them as a good compromise when they don’t feel like wearing high heels, but still want shoes to give them some extra height. The problem is that I don’t think they’re aware of wedges’ pragmatic beauty. Far from being the less sexy sisters of high heels, wedges speak of exotic travels, summer fun and of the 40s, the decade which made them famous. These Riviera starfish-printed canvas wedge sandals by Yves Saint Laurent, from the spring/summer 2012 collection, are a perfect example of everything wedges should be.
The wedge heels are about 140mm high; they have thin buckled ankle straps and a nice off-white curved sole (another reference to the nautical theme). I would wear them with side-buttoned sailor pants and a white halter top, so as to re-create a 40s outfit, or with a flutter-sleeved white dress and red accessories.
