Cara by Rosegold

24-Karat Kicks: We're a fool for Rosegold's Cara – a corky wedge that gilds our spring look.

We're pretty good at getting our hooks into new trends if we do say so ourselves. Even with our eagle eyes, some trends are too hot to hold onto. Nicole Ritchie's House of Harlow? Oh sure coming shortly. But re-orders? Forget it. (They are sold out worldwide to the pair; like, crickets chirping in the warehouse. When they come online next week, you'd better have your mouse hovering over "Add to Bag.") Just as blistering but without the celeb cachet is Rosegold. Funny enough, same parent company. Fashion is as fashion does.

Cara is beautiful. A lovely 4.5-inch cork wedge interlaced with brown leather piping, emphasizing the graceful lines of the bottom and leading up to your hotchacha legs. The horizontal piping also serves to reduce the visual size of the wedge: you'll look like you have less height while gaining additional presence. It's a head-turning, attention-commanding sneak attack!

The heelcup and peeptoe are connected by a broad swath of camel-colored leather with cut-outs and finished with a demure ankle strap. We'd wear this with a nude nail polish or even a French pedi (mais oui!). We show it here with an adorable light frock with an all-over tiny flower pattern – feminine, fresh, fun. Think Anthropologie – that soft-focus, halycon Elysium in which their catalog is shot. Rosegold will make your every summer moment seem a keepsake.
