S/S2010 Trends I love (3): Wedges & Platforms

We have an awful cold winter this year. It snowed, snowed and has lasted forever. This really makes me long for spring.

One of the big footwear trends in SS10 is the comeback of wedges and platforms. I have always loved wedge shoes, but have never been fond of these heavy clogs with towering chunky wooden heels as seen on Celine, Chanel, Miu Miu… Luckily, there are some nice wearable wedges out there too. Wedges in nude/natural color are definitely on my SS10 list. :-)

Happy weekend everyone!

    I love these shoes! Specially the 3thrd and 4th.
    First i thought the four shoes are all yours. Is it true or have you found these at the internet?

    Nina, thank you and welcome! I’ll try to write more information about the items next time.

    Anna, none of these shoes are mine. Pictures are credited to net-a-porter. ;-)

    I found wedges much easier to handle, but I also sprang my ankle on a pair of comfortable wedges too. I blame on my feet 5555555

    jibjab, I have similar problem when wearing flats, 555…. Wedges are far better for me.

    The instructions have you knead the dough? That seems odd to me I think of biticuss as a quickbread, which means no kneading. I’d think the kneading would make them tough. I find the addition of an egg odd, too, though, so perhaps the Bob’s Red Mill mix is just a totally different biscuit concept.I recently used the Smitten Kitchen recipe for Cream Biscuits (via James Beard) as a cobbler topping, replacing the cream with 1 cup of milk, which makes it too gooey for rolling but perfect for blopping onto fruit. Instead of dipping the dough, I poured the melted butter over the top. With a squirt of lemon or a spoon of vinegar to sour the milk (like Kathy c recommended), I think that the Smitten Kitchen recipe with 3/4 cup soured milk would work well for buttermilk-type biticuss.

    Iced tea is also a popular pakeagcd drink. It can be mixed with flavored syrup,with common flavors including lemon, peach, raspberry, cherry. the most common among the these are lime and peach. Apart from this herbs are also sometimes served cold and referred to as herbal iced tea. It is also quick and easy. A cup of tea actually contains more of these compounds, called antioxidants, than a serving of any fruit or vegetable! And do watch the calories if you drink tea with added sugar.
