What a crazy whirlwind week! I have been up and down all over town since I have been changing up the rooms in my place so the whole thing is such a mess! This is why I have been so MIA online; there's nothing I hate more than coming home at the end of a day to a messy bedroom. I'm nearly done figuring out my shoes, makeup, clothes, etc, and I will be taking pics of my new shoe setup soon since that is probably what relates the most to this blog but I will probably do my makeup too.
Anyway, onto the shoes, I finally got a chance to go out and I decided to put my Bebe Jade's to the test. I walked around for about 2-3 hours and I have to say, it's like walking in sneakers. Not that I've ever walked in sneakers, I mean, uhhh... ;) (And yes, for those curious, I do own sneakers! Unbelievable, I know) Well, they are very comfortable and stable, when I first slid them on they did pinch my pinky toe again and I thought for sure I was gonna get a blister. But I just wiggled my toe a little and it fell right where it needed to be, and 3 hours later I am blister free!
Make sure you put your toes into place before you start walking or you will be wincing! Also, don't tighten the ankle strap too tight. I did that and I could not go up stairs comfortably, it's the same feeling you get on your wrist from wearing a watch too tight. The majority of the security will come from the wedge itself so don't rely too much on the ankle strap.
Last but certainly not least, be careful when walking on grass, and I mean lumpy grass! I was all fine and dandy until I inadvertently stepped on a clump and I started tilting forward! Remember that super high wedges have itty-bitty bottom soles so watch your step. Other than that, you will be golden!
Oh! One big negative on this shoe. The wedge area with the golden basket weave, well it seems like the golden part is just sprayed on or something because it's actually very flaky. I saw a little piece of the gold coming up, so I pulled it off thinking its gold underneath too, but its not! It's just the regular plain basket weave. I am worried that it I scratch up against surfaces the gold will start peeling off. To me, this is a real downfall for this wedge. I guess I'll just have to be extra careful.
