When wedge sneakers hit the fashion scene last year, was it a trend you thought you’d never try? It wasn’t exactly love at first sight for me, but you know I’ve never met a shoe I didn’t like… (except Crocs. Sorry, Crocs.)
Isabel Marant’s* uber-trendy platform wedge sneakers first took the fashion world by storm when street-stylers proved they could be worn both day or night. For me, they’re mainly a comfortable alternative to a daytime heel for weekend errands (or, let’s be honest, Sunday Funday).
My moment of Zsa Zsa Zu (ahem, anyone?) came as I was researching my post on 21 pairs of affordable wedge sneakers. I instantly and immediately obsessed over Rebecca Taylor’s cheetah version, so I kept a close on them over time. Incidentally, the only size they had left (mine) went on sale on my birthday and were even further reduced on Black Friday. Fate/no brainer, right?
I tweeted about my find after I made the purchase, which I believe
peer pressured prompted my blogging bud Katie to make the same investment. That’s why we’re linking up today to show you two ways to style the sneaker wedge trend.

*I had a hard time pronouncing this designer’s name at first, so take note from my lessons learned the hard way — Isabel Marant is pronounced “Ees-ah-bell Mar-awn(t),” soft T. May take you a few trys, but you you’ll get it.
Have a great weekend! The second installment of my Gossip Girl Fashion Copycat series is coming on Monday, so stay tuned.
