As a girl who is average height (on good days) I love wedges. They add height, without looking out of place at work or at the beach.

My personal favorites are the Alexander Wang knotted sandals that were $655 and are now $262 for 60% off. These shoes take edgy to a feminine pretty level with their 5 inch platform heels and thong sandal look. Great with a tunic and a mini skirt for that spring day in Central Park or a stroll in Soho. Wherever you are NYC, LA, or Washington D.C. these army green neutral sandals will go with everything from trousers to skirts to dresses.
Another one of my favorite items is the draped black sleeveless top from Alexander Wang for $220 which is 60% off the $550 regular price. This top with its sheer drape adds just the right amount of accent to a simple sleeveless top so that you can dress up any outfit and go from office with a blazer and black trouser pants to a quick change of sandals and mini skirt for a night out. The sheer back is a nice surprise once the jacket is off at dinner after work. You are now all dressed up and you went straight from the office to dinner and drinks without worrying about your ensemble.
And if you are shopping this great sale, don’t leave without checking out the amazing Alexander Wang drape back dress. It is so simple but the cut is what makes this dress so simply sexy. From the front it looks like a great t shirt dress that you can wear with flat thong sandals. From the back you are ready for a night out with a pair of high heeled platform sandals. Get the Alexander Wang drape back dress for $182.50 which is 50% off the retail price of $365.
Whatever you choose from Alexander Wang you will not go wrong. His designs are simple, elegant, and well tailored to fit you beautifully.
Everyone gets excited for Spring because it means open toe shoes!
Here are the top 5 sandals for Spring according to the gals at the Shopping and Info office.
If you donâ€™t want that very flat sandal, try this tiny wedge sandal like the RED Valentino Grommet Wedge Sandal for $325. The t-strap and double ankle strap add a unique design to a boring flat sandal while the bow and grommet detailing giving it a little something extra.
For a slightly high option, we like the Brunello Cucinelli Scrunch Gray Fabric Sandal for $955 because it makes us reminisce of the Italian countryside. The grey fabric as a neutral provides a nice change from blacks and tans.
For a bold pop of color, we like the Ralph Lauren Alannah Suede Platform Sandal for $495. The chunky wooden platform against the bright tangerine color makes it an amazing sandal for Spring!
For a new spin on the tan heeled sandal, we like the Alexander McQueen Skull-Detail Braided Platform Sandal that has natural braided straps with gold details. The twists and curves of the straps give it an abstract pattern that will look fierce on any foot.
Our last sandal trend for Spring is a twist on the classic flat sandal. The Fendi Attraction Wrap Flat Sandal has a great bright red color, perfect for the season and an ankle wrap that gives it a sexy edge. Throw away your boring flip-flops and get one of these top sandals for Spring 2012!
Wow platform sandals are going sky high up to almost 6 inches this summer. If you need the extra height and want the comfort, I found the best option for you. Check out these Joe’s Jeans Diva Platform Sandals. The reason why these platform sandals are so great is because they have a 2 inch platform to make these sandals feel like 3.75 inch heels instead of the 5.75 inch heels. The sandals also come in beautiful soft black or nude leather depending on the look you are going for AND they are $195 for a pair of very couture looking sandals. These can rival a pair of Yves Saint Laurent or Fendi platform sandals.
I love the return of the nude neutral beige shoe for spring. It is all about a long and lean looking leg this spring and summer and the styles are aplenty with nude colored shoes.
