A short, sad shoe story: I ordered these Mossimo "Pilar" wedges. They came, I returned. The end.
Yeah, they weren't so good.
The wedge is a dead-ringer for Dolce Vita "Pela" sandals, and I've only lusted for those through the screen. Haven't seen IRL. The Pilar, a wallet-friendly $29.99, definitely had that plastic-ish, faux leather look. In a bad way. Remember Cynthia Vincent's Target collab last spring? That was faux done right.
The zipper back worked well, and the shoe fit perfectly through the toe and top of the foot. The dealbreaker was the baggy ankle strap. It wasn't adjustable, and it seemed like it would bug. So, Pilar went to a new home at the local Target store. Sigh. Isn't it time for Cynthia Vincent to do an encore Target presentation?
