Alexander McQueen Finned-Wedge Suede Booties, $1050 va Neiman Marcus.
Can someone hand me a hanky? I’ve just drooled on myself, and I’m not sure whether it’s the antihistamines I took an hour ago to try and make my eyes stop itching or the sight of the utterly gorgeous Alexander McQueen Finned-Wedge Booties that drove my to lazy, half-conscious salivation. It might be a combination of the both, but I’m pretty sure that these shoes are gorgeous enough to elicit that sort of Pavlovian reaction on their own.
I had the pleasure of seeing a similarly curvy-heeled McQueen wedge in person before this one appeared on Neiman Marcus’s website, and I can tell you that in person, that shoe was a show-stopper. And it was just a simple wedge; there was no dramatic, darkly beautiful black grosgrain ribbon at the back to add a dramatic bow to make the heels even more special. Front the front, you’d never guess all the fun that’s going on in the back. You’ll want to enter every room rear-first when you have these on your feet. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $1050.
