Unless throwing a good party is your job, you don't need a ton of festive shoes. One pair'll do—two if you want to get seasonable about it. But they have to be special (it should go without saying: not all interesting shoes are suitable for parties). However, all party shoes should be interesting, likely by way of playful details (feathers, cutouts, etc.). And since the one party you are paid to attend is fast approaching (I'm talking the annual office holiday shindig here), don't you think it's worth investing in one more pair? ‘Tis the season.
Bionda Castana Lana Pumps : Tightly laced, in a good way, with all signs pointing to a next level leg line. For that, you can thank the pointed toe, angled ankle strap, and steep heel.
Paul Andrew Wavy Pumps: The shadow of this shoe would be classic, but bring it into the light and let the swoops do the talking.
Sophia Webster Angelo Cutout Pumps : The holidays can give you wiiiiings. Kitten heeled wings. That’s right, the kitten heel is back and better than before in winter white.
Delpozo Patent Leather Sandals: All wrapped up—happy holidays to you, too.
Nasty Gal High And Fly Faux Feather Heels: More isn’t only more, it’s oftentimes better. An extra shot of espresso? Please. A plume on your black sandal? By all means, yes.
