Carmen Fall 2011 teal ostrich velvet wedges | 6″ wedge & 2″ platform
Purchased/available at: I bought these at Neiman Marcus on sale. There is only a size 37 left at Neiman Marcus & Bergdorf Goodman. You can also find this wedge at Charlotte Olympia.
Fit: I’m a standard 37 in Olympia’s shoes. I just got these so I haven’t worn them out for an entire evening yet however the ankle strap makes them easy to walk in.
I adore Olympia’s Fall 2011 collection and was debating between these and the Tessa cat wedges. Teal is my favorite color so I went with the Carmen. They feature ostrich-embossed velvet with a crystal buckle ankle strap. My only complaint is that since the velvet is quite plush it’s difficult to get the buckle pin through the strap.
I was inspired by Sarah Jessica Parker‘s outfit yesterday & starting playing with bright tights.
