I love the word scarlet...its such a great alternative to plain old red. It just has so much oomph!!! I mean any word that means " flagrantly immoral" has to be great or at least a lot of fun. There is also something strangely American about it...Scarlet O'Hara (an icon of the South), the Scarlet Letter (a symbol of anti-puritanism -my interpretation anyway). So doesn't it make sense that the shoes I am choosing as your July 4th go-tos are aptly called the Scarlet Cork Wedges...a little bit of implied Americana and so weekend-HOT!!!
These vertiginous stunners from Dior are on sale for $460 on Bluefly.com. They are versatile as they will work with all of the fab finds I am going to turn you onto this week...perfect for the Catherine Malandrino Flag Dress I just featured!!! They are practical...yes, crazy high, but wedges are just easier to maneuver in when you are attempting to negotiate challenging summer weekend terrain...wood slats, lawns, pebbles and the like. They are so sexy/sweet...girly bows and the scalding scarlet red hue...a recipe for summer love perhaps. And, they are of course patriotic...in my world anyway. Probably more city and beach worthy than Columbia County, but don't despair I have some great upstate suggestions coming your way.
These sulty little numbers are too potentially "debaucherous" to pass up, so ladies if you don't want to miss out on the holiday "cheer", I suggest you click now (sizes are slightly limited). Happy summer!!!!
