I have been drooling over the Pour la Victoire "Edie" Dusty Peach patent wedges (above right), but not only are they out of reach budget-wise, they are apparently completely and utterly unavailable!! I like the J.Crew "Martina" patent wedge also (above left), in apricot mist...but they, too, are $228! I love the light pink/peach nude color of both these shoes, the patent finish and the 3-4 inch wedge heel. I feel like they could be the most versatile shoe around if I could get my hands on an affordable doppelgangor! If you would be up for helping I would beyond appreciate it! —Zina
Both of the shoes you lust after are actually budget-friendly styles inspired by the Jimmy Choo "Allen" wedge pump ($595) or the Christian Louboutin "Ron Ron" ($695) - but I know that's little consolation! Fortunately a few other brands have more affordable look-a-likes that might work for you.
My favorite look for less is the Franco Sarto "Impell" pump ($99.95) - it's a cool taupe leather wedge with a sleek almond toe and demure 3 1/4" heel.
If you don't mind a suede finish (which I agree with you is probably less versatile than the patent), then Ivanka Trump's "Linear" wedge pumps ($113) might fit the bill. Also available in purple or black.
Finally, if you're willing to forego the peach color for something in black, red, purple or faux snake, then you'll love the Cosmopolitan for JCP "Emily" wedge pump - it's only $37 and comes in lots of fall-perfect colors.
UPDATE: Thanks to tips from readers Kris and Mary Beth, we have another amazing option - the best one yet! It's the Sole Society "Kelly" and it's just $49.95. If you're not already a member, you'll have to join first (it's free), then search for "Kelly".
