Wedge Bootie Love - Forever & Today.

8 November 2011

Say hi to my new loves. Wedge booties have been on my mind for a while now. I specifically was after a black suede pair. They have the ability to lengthen your legs beyond belief and yet they remain fairly practical. They can be dressed up or down. Pretty tunic dress or skinny jeans, they'll look equally great with both.  

With all the above in mind I've been scouring the internet for a pair because most stores here don't have my size, only a US9 I hasten to add. I checked every online shoe store I know. There was a cute pair on Steve Madden but I couldn't really commit without trying the size first. Then a friend of mine who I'd mentioned this to said she'd seen a pair in Forever 21. I had to go look. As soon as I got to the footwear I spotted them. They were perfect; but then I remembered where I was and how my feet are bigger than the average man's here (they have small feet, I do not have clown feet)! There was only three pairs there and as I turned them over to check sizes I was willing them to be my size. They were! Yey! 

In fact, I guess F21 stocks my size and has next to no demand for it because they had loads of shoes in my size. I couldn't help myself from picking up the leopard print peep-toe ones too. After all, two pairs at Forever 21 still costs less than one pair just about anywhere else.

Now, I know some people hate leopard print but I'm having a serious print obsession moment. Worn with a classy non-slutty outfit a touch of print can look great. Here's my proof for you;

Maybe not appropriate for winter in Korea though. Sigh.

Have I convinced you?
I tried to find the boots on the website to link them up for you guys but unfortunately I couldn't so you may have to go check out your local F21. Even if they don't have the boots you're bound to find something you want. I can't seem to get out of there without buying at least two or three things. I also picked up a cute knitted scarf and some bangles on this trip.

More Forever 21 finds
Leather studded bangle set. Gold 'Love' bangle. Knitted scarf with metallic gold thread.

Leave me a comment and let me know your take then go tempt yourself on



  1. I've been after wedge booties like these for months! Unfortunately, we don't have a Forever 21 where I live.. sigh, New Look it is. These are both amazing though xx

  2. these are awesome i need to buy more clothes and shoes instead of all this makeup! lol, love the bangle

  3. @ Boscy. You could try Aldo if you have that near you. A friend of mine got a great pair similar to this there. Just got Aldo in Korea but they don't have my size. *Sob*

    @ CottonCandyINK. My problem is I buy both! Haha. Have to start saving one day but clothes, make up and jewelery are so fun!

  9. Okay I personally love leopard print and ankle booties. I have to ask though; are shoes, heels in particular, from F21 comfortable?

  10. Thanks for the comment & the follow!

    I absolutely love wedge booties. I've got a pair but they hurt my feet, I'd love to find another that are a little more comfortable. The black ones here are gorgeous!

    I'm definitely a new follower too :)


  11. Y love then too!

  13. Nice boots, love the LOVE bangle. Think I might hunt that one down! Congratulations on your 100++followers!! :)

  14. Thank you all for stopping by and your sweet comments!

    @Melu103, Thank you so much for finding that recipe for me. So thoughtful of you! I never actually thought to try making them myself. I'll give it a shot soon.

    @Fshnonmymind, actually I tried them on with some thick black tights and they look pretty cool. So I'll hopefully stay toasty through winter!

    @Bre, I haven't bought shoes from F21 before so I'm not sure. These two seem okay. The black ones are really high so obviously they hurt the balls of my feet but all high heels do. The leopard ones are actually really comfy because they're not too steep.


  15. wait you found these at F21??? I am so there! Thanks for the comment and follow, following you right back ;)

  16. Thank you for follow me! i also follow you now! i hope you come back to me , to my next post! kisses! have a good day!

  23. Hey there UD! Those boots are fab! Have you ever tried any fashion ensemble designs from Stella McCartney? It's worth a look! I have added/followed you, add/follow me back! Stay gorgeous!

  24. Love your blog! thanks for following me, i'm following you now. I adoooore wedges! although i'm too nervous to buy open toed wedges cos i'd hate to get my toes wet when it rains :P xxx

  25. Thank you again to everyone who has stopped by my blog and left a comment. I really love reading all your thoughts and opinions.

    @ Marisa A. Yep all from F21. Cute, huh?! I don't think it's possible for someone not to find something they like in that store.

    @ Alicia, go to Forever 21 and then you can probably get both. Worst case scenario, don't eat much for a week ;)

    @ English Lass, no I haven't tried any Stella McCartney myself, seen a lot of things I love though. One day! :)

    @ Heather, I never though about the rain thing. Now I'm worried. I'll have to check the weather forecast whenever I plan on wearing these. Wet toes doesn't sound fun. Sounds cold :(

    Come say hey again soon! xxx

  26. I LOVE LOVE those boots, soo super cute.
