While Cinco De Mayo is nothing special to most “real” Mexicans, us hybrids living here in the US of A have come to celebrate it with our favorite cervezas and tequilas over some Lotería games with friends. Hey, we still put those Frenchies in their place, so why not drink up, right? ;) As a good Angelino, I made my way through the fine Cinco De Mayo celebrations, that fell conveniently on a Saturday, in Downtown LA, including Plaza Olvera, along with all the fine tequila bar establishments celebrating the occasion. In my fun bar hopping, I was taken back by these adorable maryjane peeptoe wedges from across a crowded bar. As I approached the gorgeous lady, drawn intently by these shoes, I failed to realize she was actually an acquaintance. Birds of a feather, go figure! ;) So of course, she let me get the details of her festive wedges.
They are from a label called Andrea shoes, and fittingly, a Mexican shoe company. *swoon* These are not for those with a fear of height as they are 5 ¼” high with a 1 ¾” platform. It’s like they know I have a weakness for skyscraper heels, right? The most obvious thing about these wedges is their endearing print. It resembles the traditional “gavan,” or Mexican blanket, print. The ankle strap maryjane sweetness is counterbalanced with a sexy peep toe to make it freshly modern, and utterly irresistible!
The fact that these are only $62.10 let’s you celebrate your ethnic adoration of Mexican culture all year round.
