WTWW: Wedges

Whew! It’s been a while since I blogged a fashion-related post. Well, here it is! Today’s topic is wedges. You may probably recognize this trend since it has been around for quite a long time. Wedges are great especially if you’re not one of those people who can last for hours in a pair of stilettos, but still need the extra oomph! Here are some ideas on how to wear wedges:

I, personally, don’t choose to wear wedge slides, but they are as great as wedge sandals. I think pairing a reasonably high wedge slides would look great with a pair of shorts. In this set, I chose to pair a color block top with some printed denim shorts, add some funky sunglasses, and finish with a hobo printed shoulder bag.¬†When I think of high heels (wedges or stilettos), I immediately think of the word “sophisticated”. This look is very laid-back which balances the sophistication of the wedge slides.

Another trend that I’m seeing a lot this summer is wearing a romper with wedges. Again, I would probably choose a reasonable height for my heels especially when wearing shorts, skirts, or rompers. I chose this particular pair of wedges because of the print, but it would be nice to have them in a lower heel height. I paired the rose-colored romper with a basic cardigan. You can pull the sleeves up if you think it’s too hot for a cardigan or you can choose to wear this ensemble at night. The belt — you can do so much with it. You can either tie it on the romper or outside on the cardigan or you can choose to not wear it at all. I like the lavender belt, though since it contrasts the colors in the romper. It’s an unexpected pop of color, but since it is still in the red family, it’s not overpowering the pinks. I finished the look with bangles that matches the romper. When accessorizing for a look like this, less is definitely more.

Last, and definitely on the least: colors! I can’t get enough of it! For this look, I paired a coral-colored dress with some tribal, but colorful belt, mint green earrings, and a soft neutral messenger bag to tone down the girly vibe from the ruffles of the dress. When dealing with dresses, you can opt for higher than usual wedges. They will make your legs look longer, and you can thank me later.

The Face Shop Herb Day Cleansing Wipes

The Face Shop Herb Day Cleansing Wipes is my new favorite! I got these during my recent trip to NYC. My sister wanted to go to a bookstore which happened to be in the same building as the store named The Face Shop. I haven’t heard that name before, but I was curious since Korean-brand cosmetics have good reputations in the market. Of course, I had to opt for the skincare products. I bought the travel size (20 wipes) since I was a little skeptical about them. Man, was I wrong! I should’ve bought the bulk wipes (70 wipes), and I did (even if I had to wait 2 weeks since I bought it on eBay, but it was worth it!). The wipes smell really good; they have this herbal scent which is calming in my opinion. I really enjoy using these. I think they remove make-up very well, and I don’t feel the need to wash my face after, but I still do (just in case). The wipe itself does not have any greasy feeling, and it doesn’t leave your face oily residues after you use it. It really is a great facial wipe. Unfortunately, it is not available everywhere. You could try to find it on eBay, or go to www.thefaceshop.com to find a retail store near you. Most The Face Shop stores in the US are located in CA. I think I will continue to purchase these wipes over and over again.
