I am headed to Viva Las Vegas tomorrow to attend the Affiliate Summit conference, so I did a little last-minute shopping yesterday and bought some brown wedge flats with buckles across the vamp from Catos (shown above) as more of an impulse buy (at a low price that I couldn’t refuse). I figured I’ll be doing a lot of walking, so I don’t want to be wearing high heels the entire time. Plus these flats match a new pair of pants I bought from Maurice’s to a tee! They didn’t have a size 7.5, so I went with an 8 and plan to wear thick socks with them.

I couldn’t find the shoes I bought to be available online, but I found a similar style with these CL by Laundry Marque Buckle Flats, available from DSW.com, $39.95. They even have the wedge, only it’s hidden.

I actually think I like the look of mine better (my photo job doesn’t do them justice), although the Chinese Laundry ones definitely look “richer” (which they are more expensive) and are quite possibly more comfortable.   Time will tell. I’ll pack Band-Aids in case I get blisters.
