The Edie Wedgewick Shoe

Can someone say hilarious? Don’t know who Edie Sedgwick was? Alright, I”ll do you a solid and fill you in. Edith Sedgwick was an American actress, socialite, model, heiress, and most importantly, Andy Warhol’s number one muse. She was America’s It Girl for a while, and the wonderful Vogue Magazine dubbed her a Youthquaker. Oh and if that’s not enough for you, she’s the first cousin of Kyra Sedgwick, of TNT’s hit drama (and a personal fav) The Closer.

Needless to say, Edie was somewhat of a fashion icon in her day, and clearly the inspiration for this shoe (and a witty pun). I like this shoe. It’s something that a good friend of mine from high school would wear: a mix of hippie, hip, and down right funky. The designer had a few words of his own to add, which I must provide to you:

These sixties-inspired, modern wedges are “it” if you’re looking for a well-constructed wedge that doubles as a center of attention! Their leather upper, wooden sole, and lace up front will stand the test of party time, while their bright, multicolored, tweed-inset sides seem to be made for none other than the modern socialite. Slip ’em on with a pair of harem pants and a printed coat for a stroll through your favorite pop art museum, and you’ll be dressed to impress impromptu paparazzi!

So slip on your very own pair and you’ll be ready to join Eric, Jackie, Kelso, Hyde, Donna, and Randy and rock out in That 70s Show style.
