Paralegal Career Dressing: Virgin Wedges

Paralegal Career Dressing:  Virgin Wedges

Ignore the title if it offends you. I’m messin’ with Google again 🙂

But these are my first pair of wedge heels. I’ve tried on many pairs over the years, but always felt like I was wobbling in stilts. I only tried these on because I really wanted neutral beige heels for warm weather, saw these at Ross Dress for Less, and thought they were gorgeous.

What was really funny, is while I had my feet in ’em, The Teen announces from the other side of the shelf that she has some shoes on I have to see, walks around the corner, and we’re wearing the same wedges! That’s when you know you’re cool enough for school.

Max and Cleo faux wrap dress (old, Marshalls I think); Nine West wedges ($25 Ross Dress for Less); Pendant (Charlotte Russe); Bracelet (Forever 21)

This dress is from my wouldn’t-pay-more-than-$25-for-a-machine-washable-dress phase five or six years ago. I haven’t worn it in a long time, and kept pushing it to the back of the closet and waffling over whether I should GoodWill it. Then I saw someone wearing the same dress a couple of weeks ago, and she looked so gorgeous, I thought I’d give it another spin. I think it’s a comfortable keeper.

Feathers are in this year. I think these are feathers in the print…

These wedges are incredibly comfortable. Get ready to see a lot of them!

Look, big girl wedges!

Do you ever wear wedges to the office?

  1. Oh, I like these wedges. I actually prefer a wedge to a heel in the classroom. Somehow, at the end of the day, my legs feel less strain.

  2. I have a similar pair of wedges and was amazed at how comfortable they are to wear. I expected them to be like heels but they're so much easier on the feet.

    Yours are very pretty. And the dress is quite attractive, too. Nice taste!

  3. @Terri ~ I think I'm a new fan of wedges now. In the past, maybe the ones I tried on were too wobbly, high, or narrow. I felt like my ankles might snap 😮

  4. @Ally, I, too, am so surprised by how comfortable they are.

    I don't know why I'd relegated this dress to the back of the closet for a while. I think it's one of those that definitely look better on than it does on the hanger.
