Holiday Do: the Detailed Shoe

I hope everyone had a full and yummy Thanksgiving, indulging just a bit too much and enjoying the holiday with friends and family.

It’s getting cold outside!  People are putting up glittering lights; Christmas trees are peeking out of windows; and mall parking lots are full, full, full!  I recently braved the throngs of people to do a little shoe shopping at my local Sears ~ and my attention was stopped by all the sparkly shoes out right now!

Holiday parties are taking place all month long, so this edition of Shoe Picks is extra special.  It’s packed with all kinds of fun shoes that will be perfect for any party ~ from work parties to informal get togethers with friends.


Metaphor’s “Tiana” Heels ($29)

These practical and oh-so-cute kitten heels make an all night party totally do-able.

Metaphor’s “Tiana” Heels are under 2″ tall, and are available in trusty black and holiday red.  You’ll be able to dance the night away in these shoes, and even wear them to work on Monday morning!  Originally $34.99; now on sale for $29.99.

Velvet Heart “Angelique” Heels ($39)

Have a great dress but it’s got gold bling and you want to show off your silver?  These Velvet Heart “Angelique” Shoes nip that problem in the bud.  It combines the most basic silver and gold sparkles ~ and even throws in some black.

The heel is 4″ and the platform is 1″, lending a bit more comfort to these tall finds.  These shoes are understated enough to pair with a semi-loud dress, or can easily be your best accessory for your classic LBD.  Originally $49.99, now on sale for $39.99.

SM New York’s “Clare” Flat ($19)

SM New York’s “Clare” offers a flat option full of sparkles.  Available in black and gold, you can add some sparkle to your holiday outfit without giving up comfort.  (It seems like glitter flats make it on my list every season!)

The tiny sequins are sure to be a big hit whether you’re getting together with friends to exchange a few gifts or having a cocktail with co-workers.  Available in black and gold.  Originally $29.99, now on sale for $19.99.

Covington Lisa Boot ($24)

Covington’s “Lisa” is a great bootie with a chunky heel that’s under 2″.  It gives off a carefree vibe, but is sure to kick your holiday dress up a notch.

This bootie would go great with skinny jeans or leggings, too; so keep ’em around even after the holiday parties are winding down.  Available in red, black and gray.  Originally $49.99, now on sale for $24.99.

Covington “Frilly” Boot ($34)

Of course I can’t leave out a shoe called “Frilly!”  The Covington “Frilly” Boot is classy, with just the right amount of fun thrown in.

Available in black, gray, and red, you have lots of options including basic, understated and loud.

These boots will go great with a skirt or dress for any party.  Or throw them on with skinny jeans for a night out.  Plus they’re on sale ~ so you can get more than one pair!  Originally $79.99, now on sale for $34.99.

Covington Addison Flat Boots ($39)

These Covington “Addison” Boots offer a hidden low wedge ~ which is great for giving you some additional length.  The detail at the top of the shaft is feminine and fun, but not over the top.  There is a zipper on the inside for easy on/off, too.

“Addison” is available in black and taupe.  Add these to a simple dress and let them steal the show!  Originally $79.99; now on sale for $39.99.

All of these great shoes are currently on sale; but check online or with your local Sears as sales change constantly during this time of year.

Go all out with glitter.  Or keep it simple with frills and detail.  But definitely have fun!

Have a happy holiday season!  See you next time for the Spring Picks!
