To Wedge or not to Wedge, Sneaker that is!

Hi Angels,

As some of you may know six months ago this Pretty Prescriber became a mother for the second time.  With each pregnancy, due to swelling and weight gain my shoe size has increased by half a size.  I just purchased some size nine cross trainers the other day.  That is a far cry from a size 7 1/2 that I wore when I got married.

In my quest to accommodate my bigger family, there have been some changes.  (Bye, bye X5 and hello Honda Pilot). No minivan Mom!  I digress. I still want to be  hot to death while chasing my toddler and walker using baby.  This leads me to the post title.  

I've been seeing a good deal of fashionable celebrity moms running around town in their wedge sneakers.  I like the look and they can be worn with leggings and skirts.  

Here are a few of our favorite girls below:

Fashionistas everywhere are split on their opinions of the wedge sneaker.  Isabel Marant who credits herself for the new found interest is no longer wearing her eight hundred dollar creations pictured above.  She says and I quote, "There are two many vulgar imitations running around". I'm sorry if you heard me rolling my eyes. Really?  I doubt she created the eighties.

Everyone deserves to be fashionable. I have kids and bills so the guilt of purchasing a pair of her sneakers would kill me.  Nike, Pumas, Steve Madden ,my faves Ash and many more have cute wedge sneakers within my budget.

Aren't they gorge.  I got them for a great price in size 39=8-8 1/2.  Brand new and too small. They are looking for a new home.    Sorry that was the sound of myself and the sneakers shedding tears. They are sold out almost everywhere. 

I intend to buy some others and wear them with whatever looks cute. Look out Spring!  So what do you think?  Do you have wedge sneakers?   Are you planning to buy any?   Or are you just not a fan.  Let us know what you think.

Until next time Angels
Happy Haulin'
