I love a wedge.
I found these beauties on the River Island website a week or so ago. After an evening discussing/persuading with my long suffering boyfriend how soon he'd be able to go out shopping with his friend who works for River Island so I could get a discount on them. I went to sleep that night and promptly had a mild panic about how if I waited for him then they might sell out.
Luckily I was in London, at my boyfriends, so I hot footed it down to Oxford Street the next day, where apparently the 'flagship' store of River Island lies. Correct me if I'm wrong, but for a flagship store it's pretty damn small and lacking in stock. In fact there are actually two pretty damn small River Island stores masquerading as big stores down Oxford Street. Nevertheless I figured that at least one of the stores would stock the sacred wedges.
Alas, neither store came up with the goods. The first one was a complete no show, and so I practically ran down to the next store (no mean feat on a umbrella/tourist filled Friday afternoon down Oxford Street) with my fingers crossed, only to find the one remaining pair were in a tiny size 3. I think I may have cried a little.
So thank goodness for the internet, where they are fully in stock.
And here they are.....
Cannot wait to do an outfit post with them on.
I predict I will probably stain them within the first 5 minutes of wear, but what's the point of nice shoes if you can't wear them, huh?
