Colourful Wedges

Yesterday, the lovely Alison wrote the following request on PartyMixTape’s facebook page: “Hey PMT, I need help finding bridal wedges (because heels sink in the grass and I need about 3 - 4 inches). They must be cool and colourful. Your mission should you choose to accept it.” CHALLENGE ACCEPTED – and completed!

For this challenge, I chose to stay away from all cork and straw heels as I felt they might appear too casual for this special occasion. After all, Alison is a bride and as such she merits la crème de la crème of wedges. I saw the most exquisite pair of Christian Louboutin glitter wedges, but our BTB was clear about wanting colour. (And try as I might, glitter is not in our colour wheel.) Finally, you’ll notice that I gravitated towards red, orange and tangerine. Am I the only one who thinks that a bride wearing red shoes is the epitome of glam?

We start off strong with a pair of orange Jimmy Choo’s. Wow-za!

Here is a decadent tangerine wedge by Kate Spade.

A budget friendly pair of Franco Sarto, found at Le Château

I. need. these. A gorgeous pair of suede wedges by Michael Kors.

Happy shopping, Alison! And to all you PartyMixTapers, do not hesitate to forward any requests or challenges! I’ll gladly help out in any way I can! Cheers,


  1. Oh my Goodness, I love them all! But I'm with you on the suede Michael Kors. I'm a huge fan of his and love them. Especially with a blue/turquoise polish on my toes. Thank you Em! Bisous.

  2. Loving those orange Jimmy Choos!!

    1. CHEETAH IS THE NEW BLACK just commented on my blog, woot woot! I must agree, those Jimmy Choos are to die for! My husband saw the post and voted for them... I don't remember him being so enthusiastic about MY expensive shoes when WE got married! Ha! I love your blog, Alicia (Am I allowed to say you are my FAVOURITE blogger? Is that breaking some kind of blogger etiquette?) Thanks for reading! Cheers, Emily
