Double-Take: Giuseppe Zanotti Wedge Sneakers

I wasn’t quite sure how I felt when wedge sneakers caught on as a trend. Nowadays, I just can’t get enough of them! But we all know I tend to lean more towards simple, classic, with just a touch of edge. So most of the wedge sneakers I see out there are way too much and don’t go with the majority of my casual looks. I love this pair by Giuseppe Zanotti.

Ten Classic pumps under $100.

There’s one style that absolutely every woman, shoe-lover or not, must have in her closet: a classic pump. Since a classic pump is the go-to shoe, sticking to neutrals is your best bet; the most practical color for a classic pump is black. But once you have a pair or two of those, feel free to branch into brights! 
Although it seens classic pumps would be easy to find since they’re always in style, it can get tricky to locate the perfect pair. There’s a lot to consider: material, heel height, brand, vamp and heel shape, color, and price. It took me a long time to find the perfect black pumps, so I created a handy list of some great classic styles all under $100 to help other shoe-lovers out there. I’m a suede-addict so my first instinct was to find those, but I also made sure to include pairs made of other materials.
