The Louboutin flats were pinchy, so I exchanged them for these newly-released-to-the-public Ann Demeulemeester covered straps wedge sandals. I've been eyeing these for months now and am sooo excited for their arrival. I rationalized the price by telling myself I can wear them in the winter. They're very similar to my Chloe Sevigny strappy wedges from Opening Ceremony, except the straps on these are covered underneath, and the buckles are more understated. The wedge is also shaped differently; I like how they're squared off in the back. And obviously, Ann D. can do no wrong. I've never bought anything by Ann that I've regretted. I can say the same thing about Givenchy and Rick Owens, but not many others.
I feel like I'm pretty much ready for spring ... even though all I've done lately is buy shoes.
