Christmas is just around the corner and many of us are beginning to think about updating our wardrobes to make them Christmas party ready. If you are unsure if your Little Black number is festive enough, throwing on some great heels is a great way to make your look ready for the party season. A good pair of heels can transform an outfit, doing all the talking without the need for heavy accessorising. The women’s party shoes shown above are great to wear with any party dress, they are all in neutral tones so will go with your whole party wardrobe. The detailing on all the shoes provide a bit of sparkle and glamour to your look. A great tip is to choose a heel with a platform this will give you that desired height but will me much more comfortable making all that dancing much easier!
Wherever you are, I hope you’re staying warm and enjoying the holidays with friends and loved ones! Meet the love of my life – Jeeves. It’s his first Christmas, and he didn’t seem to mind playing Santa and pulling toys from his stocking.
Oh, you want to see my holiday heels? I nearly forgot…

Christmas is just 5 days away, and with the upcoming holiday dinners and events it can be a little overwhelming to choose what to wear. But if you start with your shoes and work your way up, it becomes a breeze – just decide on the mood you’re going for, and go for it! Here are 3 elements to look for when choosing your Christmas and New Year’s shoes.
1. Red Velvet Is So Delicious
No material conveys Christmas quite like velvet, and when you deck your feet with red velvet pumps, you’ll be the queen of the evening. Case in point: Giuseppe Zanotti’s Velvet Platform Slingback. Just add a little black dress and as many jewels as your heart desires!
2. All That Glitters Is Gold
Well, not literally. Regardless of the color you don, you can’t fail when you step out in sparkling shoes. And don’t think you have to go high or go home – glittery flats are a comfortable and playful choice. I like the Converse Winter Glitz sneakers ($59.95) paired with a festive sweater, mini skirt and tights or leggings.
3. Bows and Frills For Feminine Thrills
This is the one time of year (besides maybe your birthday) when it’s generally encouraged to wear ornamented shoes. Choose a sexy strappy sandal with a sweet bow or a platform pump with ruffle detail for a touch of feminine charm. Consider Paris Hilton Selene Bow Sandals ($89)and a body-con dress for a sultry New Year’s Eve cocktail look.
Which shoes are you considering for your holiday festivities?
Nine West Timepiece Pumps, $89 at NineWest.com
These are the shoes I ended up bringing to Kansas with me for the holidays. I would have brought more options, but I had for myself the goal of packing light, and I succeeded – fitting everything in one suitcase (under 50lbs) and my laptop bag! These Nine West pumps are perfect, with the beaded decoration on the heels and the supple suede upper, and of course black goes with everything. Not to mention they make my legs look AHH-MAZING and my feet don’t hurt after a few hours in them.
Of course, one pair of heels just won’t quite cut it for me…I did make a shoe purchase at TJ Maxx the other day ($69!!!) that will make me look and feel like royalty during the New Year’s Eve festivities.

Once again I find myself drooling over red-soled heels. This time, it’s the Christian Louboutin Resort Collection at Neiman Marcus. All the glitter and sky-high heels have me swooning and wishing I had a couple thousand dollars to burn. I particularly love the blue pump above, and the camel-colored strappy platform sandal. My only hope is the fact that Christmas is coming…yoohoo…Santa, baby, haven’t I been a good girl this year?
