I can appreciate that the world does not need to share the same taste in shoes as me, but there are some shoes I cannot abide. For starters, I have never been (and will never be) a "chunky sneakers" kind of girl. In fact, I'm more of a "feathers, glitter, diamanté and heels" kind of girl. That being said, I don't wear extravagant shoes every day (we all need our regular work shoes and boots, and I don't have a chauffeur-driven car, much to my disappointment). However, I am on high shoe alert, as party season is approaching. So right now I'm hunting down the best of the best.
The shoe gods are smiling upon me.
Yes, these come with anklet. Yes, that's another reason to buy them.
Satin is definitely a big part of the party scene of 2018.
Hot, hot, hot.
When you want something a tad simpler, opt for strappies.
Basically Christmas as a shoe.
An unusual bit of decoration for an affordable brand.
These are the ones I bought. I went for the classic black because I knew I'd likely spill wine on these.
More Kate Moss than K.Mids.
Like dancer shoes.
Entrance-making stuff right here.
Leopard? Check. Cerise pink? Check. Good heel height for dancing? Check.
Also great for wedding season.
Pretend they're from the '70s.
A Carrie Bradshaw–worthy classic.
Wear with a tuxedo and watch them go.
If you're very good at walking in heels…
A street style favourite and future classic.
Old Hollywood kind of mules.
If Marie Antoinette wore stilettos, she would have chosen these.
Snaking ankle straps are coming back from the '00s.
The most festive feet you'll ever see.
Probably the tamest pair here, but a really solid "go with everything" option.
The kind that will keep coming back into fashion.
These also come in teal velvet.
