The Wedges in "Taupe"

"The Wedges in Black"


I had lusted after these Topshop Addison Wedges for soooooooooo long, but for some reason I found myself waiting for the right moment to buy them. I remember thinking they seemed unattainable and impractical, yet whenever I saw them in shops, magazines and the internet a wave of desire always hit me, and hit me hard. I decided to visit Topshop just to have a sneaky try on, I thought a small taster would satisfy my salacious appetite for the shoes. It didn't. I went back to Topshop a week later to try the shoes on again, this time however, the only ones in my size were the taupe coloured wedges. I wanted black. The sales assistant informed me that the black ones were sold out everywhere, and there was only one pair of taupe wedges left in my size! The notion that I had so carefully analysed and debated these shoes for nothing was unbearable. The fear that the Addison Wedges would be forever unattainable when I finally knew I wanted them made me think 'what ze heck, you only live once!'. And that's when these beautiful shoes came into my possession.

Originally I was a bit miffed that there was no black ones left, and I wasn't sure whether or not I'd return the taupe ones before a month. However, after giving the shoes a test run I love the way that they appear to change colour, that they're a bit unusual, and that they can easily assume a focal point of an entire outfit. It truly is luuuurrrrrrrrve! 


  1. OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THESE ARE AMAZING!!
    I would love to own a pair of these.
    Imagine, I'd wear the Zara wedges all through summer and these Topshop booties all through winter :P
    Great buy! I cannot believe why you ever hesitated to buy them :O

  3. The taupe look amazing. Much less predictable than black.
