New Year Shoe Candy

So, last Friday I gave y’all some ideas for really cute outfits for New Year’s Eve.

Now, y’all can’t go out barefoot, right? Unless you’re headed to a beach or something (if you are, take me with you!)

So: here are a few choices for some really pretty shoes, from heels to loafers. Let’s go!

The front…

And the back of these beauties from Aminah Abdul Jillil.

These aren’t two toned, by the way. The front view only came in the blush color, and the back only in the black. But OMG, how glorious are these?! These are way too high for my ankles to handle, but honey, you’re gonna turn heads in these bejeweled beauties. Wear these with a dramatic side slit gown or even a cute romper that needs a little jazzing up.

Ankle tie flats, also from Aminah Abdul Jillil.

If you feel like you need a little more stability, how about these little pointy toe flats? I love that something that can usually be too plain to go out is given a little extra oomph by the bow tie on the side. So cute!

Pop of floral brightness. From JustFab.

I like a quirky statement piece. This is perfect for either a big night out or a low key house party. Bonus: the heel isn’t too high!

Glitzy, because it wouldn’t be me otherwise! From JustFab.

Bring on the dramatic high sparkly heel! Alright, these are again to high for me, but oooh, how pretty! This is for that girl going out for a glam night out on the town and they need their shoes to shine!

Booties. From Nine West.

I love a bootie to go with a jumpsuit or a pair of pants. I mean, not everyone wants to wear a dress on NYE. What if you need to drop it like it’s hot? You need some coverage, and this pair helps to add to the sleekness of a pantsuit or romper.

Sparkly flat! From Nine West.

You can never, ever go wrong with a glitter flat. Makes any outfit ten times more glam and you’re comfortable! I did a pair last year, but they cut up my poor toe by the end of the evening. They were still cute though!

Loafers. Yes! From Nine West.

I adore a loafer, especially when it’s this sleek and chic. I also adore menswear, and am now incorporating more masculine elements into my dress. I would do this shoe with a black jumpsuit that’s tapered at the ankle, and one of those gorgeous cape-style blazers on top. Such a classy way to bring in the new year!

Next up: let’s finish off your looks with some jewels and bags, shall we? See you Friday!

OMG Shoes!

Fall is upon us, and now is a good excuse for me to fill my newly cleaned out closet with brand new shoes.

Quite frankly, I have no idea why I bother to clean it out if only to refill it, but hey. We all have our vices.

This season, I am all over oxfords. I love them so, so much. I spent about an hour today pinning some new shoes on Pinterest, and I thought I’d share a few pairs I’m lusting for with you.¬†

MargharitaJustFab

This first pair is from JustFab. A quick review: I am a big fan of JustFab, because if the shoe doesn’t work, you can return it for free and get a different size. As I have a shoe size that almost no retailer seems to carry (what? do folks with size 10 1/2 feet not exist?!) being able to try things on and return them is key. And this peep toe oxford gives me life, y’all! It’s on my wishlist.

CONNCORD_BLUSH-MULTI

This pair is from Steve Madden. So, if you’ve noticed the nail designs I do, then you’ll be able to guess I love sparkly things. I have been looking for an excuse to buy these, and well, I decided that I didn’t need one. Sparkly things make me happy, and I should buy things that make me happy every now and again. And!! They’re on sale for $48.98, which gives me even more reason to pick them up.

RouenJustFab

Another pair from JustFab. Despite the fact I tend to be stretched quite thin with extra time, I really want these shoes so I’ll have an excuse to go out and show off. Also, the majority of my shoe collection is black (it’s all I am allowed to wear for work), so I love having an excuse to put on a color and show off!

BrashOxfordPayless

And finally, there’s this oxford from Payless I have my eye on. I read the reviews, and you know? I’m a little worried, but I figure I’ll go by the store and take a look at them. The blue (favorite color!) makes me happy, and I’d love to pair them with some ankle pants and argyle socks. Should I pick them up, I’ll put a picture of them up on my Instagram (go follow me!)

And that’s it! I am attempting ombre nails for the first time this weekend, and I’ll have the results Monday. Until then, stay beautiful!
