Every female I know loves a fab pair of wedges. They give us the comfort we need while giving us the height we love. Especially those of us not blessed with having long legs.
So I decided to randomly ask a few guys I know why didn't they like wedged shoes. I consider them all dope in different ways, so I was curious what they’re responses would be. Here goes.
Orlando says: They look like fake heels. There’s nothing sexy about them. The point of a woman’s heel is sexy; the wedge doesn't offer that visual at all.
Jason says: They’re ugly period. There are no such things as dope wedges.
Dre says: The shoes? They look weird on a woman’s foot. The shoe is just too bulky if you know what I mean. I’ve yet to see a dope pair. Maybe, but to me I’d never like them.
Mougabe says: It just compromises that classic feminine appeal. It looks like yall wearing big a** bricks on your feet. I know they are WAY more comfy than heels but f*ck that. Looking sexy to your fullest potential should always be painful. **laughs**
Justin says: They’re not the most attractive shoes.
Shydel says: Wedges are a cop out! If you going to wear a shoe with a heel, it needs to be skinny and high! Case closed. Part of the appeal and the sexiness of a heel is to watch a woman walk and teeter in them with confidence and swagger. You don’t get that in a wedge. Anybody can walk in that. **laughs**
I asked a few others and the consensus stand. They didn’t like them and they were just plain hideous. Hell, even my father isn’t a big fan of them.
Ugh! Ouch! Ah man!
But I did hear from ONE guy who approved of wedge styles.
Ahyende says: I think they are hot. I like seeing them. They are sexy. And it depends on the look.
So ladies would you consider not wearing wedges because you knew most men didn’t find them attractive? Do you consider your shoe options when you’re dating a guy? What if he hates your shoes, would you suffer in pain wearing a particular style for your date, boyfriend, husband, etc.?
PS: Guess who'll still be wearing "bricks" on their feet all spring/summer season? Hmph!

The natural mineral makeup line created by Dexter Phillip to help women “embrace their true beauty while recognizing the importance of healthy skin” is filled with vibrant mineral eye shadows and bold lip colors for this Spring/Summer.
With the help of Dexter Phillip and Emmy Award winning makeup artist Kevin James Bennett, I was shown how to add Dex’s loose mineral pigment eyeshadow in Lincoln Center Bronze on the apples of my cheeks for a soft bronze look. Loved it! And. I. Need it!
I’m obsessed with fuchsia lips for spring. I took my obsession, jumped into the chair and begged the make-up artist to give me bold, fuchsia lips.
Me, with Dexter Phillip & Annika

Wednesday evening SpaWeek held their media event to allow attendees to indulge in relaxing treatments and decadent goodies to kick off what we've all been waiting for, the $50 treatments of course. What else?
Have you booked your appointments yet? No? I suggest you get to it!
I know some of you need to take the edge off with a good aromatherapy massage. Or, you might want to book that facial you know you need. If there is one spring trend that never goes out of style, it’s glowing skin.
So, gather your friends and make it a fun outing, or go solo for some much-needed alone time. After dealing with hectic work schedules and annoying co-workers it’s definitely worth it!
Its time to relax, relate, and release for only $50 at a time.
Head over to spaweek.com to check for local listings of participating spas in your area.

As we all take to the popular 70's trend this season with wide-legged pants and trousers, sky-high platforms and wedges, we can also add crotchet detailing as a must-have spring element. Looks like I might just be putting the crocheting skills my mom taught me as a little girl to some use. Hmmmm.
