The holidays are looming – time for festive footwear! It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Parties galore. Always an opportunity to be a little out of the box and a little over the top. My faves for festive footwear revolve around color, texture and shine. This year my top picks are Velvet & Glitter.
Velvet brings a touch of luxury to any outfit. This year Blue is the color of choice. I LOVE these Thakoon booties. Wear all season with jeans to party dresses or anything in between. The cowboy style with harness bow and buckle strike the right balance between feminine and tomboy. Badass & Beautiful.
Looking for velvet value? Check out these two styles Rosemary and Neveah from ShoeDazzle.com. Both are value priced at $39.95, available in blue or cranberry. At this price you can get them both. Use a spray protector on any fabric, including Velvet to keep them looking smart. Don’t forget to test a small unseen patch first to make sure the spray doesn’t ruin the color. A good bet is 3M Scotchgard.
My second pick for a festive season is Glitter. Can’t find it? Make it! Not only do you get the style, fit, comfort and price you want, you get the color you want too! Check out these homemade beauties. Here’s how to make them: http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2012/01/how-to-make-glitter-shoes-.html
Ready to go really over the top? Mix both velvet AND glitter to make a major statement. These gold glitter and red velvet Michael Antonio booties are particularly perfect for Santa’s Badass and Beautiful Elves.
Whatever festive footwear you choose, prepare now and enjoy the holiday season.
