I tried the Nine West ones on at Macys last weekend and they are SO comfortable. Definitely run about 1/2 size large though.

I actually bought the wedges by Very Volatile a few weeks ago. They are so cute in person and very comfortable. An added bonus - they are really light-weight considering the wedges are real wood. Love them!

At last! Sarah Jessica Parker is back to being well put together. I mean she went out a couple of times and her outfit was, not outrageous, but really!

Love her boots, though, but if she were to wear any of your choices, I would rather she wear the 'Outlaw'.

This is definately a look I will b wearing... I would probably go for the wedge look since I am 5'1 ad I feel alot more chic in some type of a heel. How i'd love to be able to wear those really high heels... I might not b able to walk straight... lol One day I'l try a pair!
