LANVIN Cutout Wedges

My love of the wedge has grown even stronger with these Lanvin cutout wedge heels.  The first caught my eye a couple weeks ago and I made a mental note to add them to site.  These shoes are eye catching, sexy, and like most wedges probably comfortable.  So if you have a long night of event hopping  (i.e. Fashion Night Out) yet needing to look chic then these babies will definitely do the trick.

Beyonce is seen below looking amazing in the September, 2011 issue of Harpar's Baazar UK.  Shoe details and purchase information at end of post.  What do you guys think?

Shoe features gold toned cutout wedge 4.5" heel, leather upper, leather lining and sole, and 2 ankle straps.  Retailed at $1,552 at Nordstrom (currently sold out) BUT they are also on Colette for $1,137 (keep in mind there will be international shipping charges that apply).

YSL Palais Suede Ankle Boots

I think these military inspired YSL Palais ankle boots are perfect for the fall.  I have a tendency to wear a lot of grey and black, especially at work (maybe it's the dismal mood my job puts me in), nevertheless these boots are just fab.  Loving the slight curve in the heel similar to the heels seen in the Miu Miu and Walter Steigler Fall 2011 collections.  Purchase info. at bottom of post.  What do you think of them?

Shoe features grey suede upper, 5.5" curved heel, 1" platform, and rope style laces for closure.  Retailed at $950 and available for purchase at Net-A-Porter.
