Holiday Sparkle

Work is insane and we have a million things to do every night.  So I’m sorry for being so sporadic with the posting.

Just wanted to share a quick Party Outfit snap.  I wore a light aqua cardigan embellished with crystals over a tulle skirted dress.  Curly hair and a tiny crown matched with sparkly glitter Miu Miu heels helped me to feel festive.

I hope everyone is having a fun holiday season.  I know this is a tough and busy time of year for many, especially in light of the recent tragedies.  But I’m hoping that sending good thoughts out to the world will help.

Jingle All The Way

Charlotte Olympia is a woman after my own heart.  I love a good themed shoe.

And how adorable are these Christmas Pudding-tastic flats.  I would wear the heck out of these and even pair them up with a red and white reindeer sweater.

But even better are these sexy mistletoe platform pumps.  Simple, elegant but just a wee bit quirky.  Too pretty to be tacky but almost wanting to be.   I love them.

Her Christmas collection even includes a Christmas Pudding clutch, Jingle Bell ankle strap heels and glitter kitty flats.  It’s too much goodness!

Now I must talk myself out of a bow-adorned Pandora clutch!

Breaking up is hard to do

How do you know when it’s time to give up a pair of shoes?

I am a notorious saver.  Not a pack-rat or hoarder but I don’t willfully give stuff up.  I’m acquisitive.  If I liked something, it’s going to take a lot for me to send it away, especially shoes.

But when you look down at your feet and say “I don’t think you look good anymore”, it’s time for them to go. Maybe they are beat up beyond repair or damaged or, in the case of these Nine West camel heels, they just don’t look “right” anymore.

When I break it down, I think it’s mainly how high up on my foot the vamp goes and the length of the toe box.

They just look out of date.

I like the heel but, it’s time to go I think.

Now I’m going to have to find a new pair of camel heels.  Crud!
