Gwen: The Quitessential Wedge

27 Dec

Now that the holidays are nearing an end, many of you are beginning to plan or finalize those tropical vacations. One of the best parts of planning a vacay is imagining all of the outfits you’ll wear!  The perfect shorts, flirty sundresses, colorful cover-ups, and of course, fun-loving flip flops are all vacation must-haves. But one of the unfortunate parts of packing is having to narrow down what shoes you’ll take, since they tend to take up precious space and weigh down your luggage.  Trying to narrow down your shoes to one or two pairs can be such a challenge – that is, unless you own a pair of versatile  shoes, like a low-heel wedge. The Gwen, an LP favorite, may just be that perfect jet-setting, casual yet dressy (and did I mention comfy?) wedge you’re searching for.

There are many reasons Gwen has been an LP classic for years now. She’s the perfect go-to when you need a little step up from a traditional flip flop – and in more ways than one! One of Gwen’s many stylish features is her one inch wedge heel – perfect for fashoenistas looking for a little reprieve from taller heels. Her tapered, classy patent straps provide a more streamlined, chic look, making her a great choice for a special event, date night, or even the office (dress code-pending).

Gwen (shown here in black) features a comfortable footbed and cushy one inch heel, making her the perfect wedge.

Gwen is also known among fans for being remarkably comfortable – no need to worry about aching heels or arches. You can definitely shop, sight see, or stand comfortably  in these shoes, thanks to the cushy heel and footbed. This wedge is designed to cradle your foot, so no awkward scuffs or trips – even after a few too many umbrella drinks ;)

The Unity snap, part of the LP resort collection, is a perfect choice for black Gwen.

Gwen looks fabulous with sundresses, capris, skirts & shorts, and even your swim suit cover up, making her  a great travel companion – she is literally one of the only pair of shoes you need on your beach getaway. One of the things I LOVE about this wedge is the fun you can have pairing her with a variety of snazzy snaps. Her signature snap is fun, yet dressy, with circular layers of elegant beading

Many of our fall snaps, like Francesca (shown above), pair perfectly with Gwen.

Some of my other favorite snap pairings with Gwen are from our Jet Setter collection. I especially adore gold & stone Gwen with the Lenore or Maura snap  and black Gwen with the Unity snap– so fun, so classy! If you’ve already treated yourself to any of our fall snaps, you can easily pair many of them with Gwen as well. Some of my favorites: Gold Gwen with Drea , stone Gwen with Francesca, and black Gwen with  Bardot. Whatever snap you decide to adorn her with, Gwen can be easily dressed up or down. She’s like the friend you can take anywhere.   And her sleek design means more space in your luggage!
