PICK OF THE WEEK
Corkswoon wedge by Stuart Weitzman
As if there isn't enough to watch at the Olympics, an added attraction to the London games has been Kate Middleton. Whether she has been wearing a Stella McCartney dress or a team GB jacket, the Duchess of Cambridge has been running around in a pair of Stuart Weitzman Corkswoon wedges. Despite the more than 4-inch height, the light-as-air cork makes them comfortable enough for a Royal's marathon schedule. Place an order at www.stuartweitzman.com or 1-212-750-2555.
