Shopping For: Party Shoes

– By Teresa Greenfeld –  

Picture it: A stunning woman walks into a party.  Her shining hair cascades down her shoulders in loose waves.  Her skin is all but pore-less.  Her outfit is perfection, perhaps created just for her.  The accessories have a glint that only real jewels possess.  Your eyes make their way to her shoes, ready to be blown away.  WAA WAA WAAAA. They’re awful.  The heels are stubby, the leather is frayed, and suddenly this spectacular woman is not so spectacular.  “What happened?” you think. “Maybe her mirror stops at her knees?”.  “Maybe she has some exotic disease that renders her incapable of choosing a good shoe?”.

Even the most expensive, most dazzling outfit can be  ruined with the wrong shoe.  Fret not my lovelies, we come to your rescue, here to save your holiday and New Year’s outfits.  Because really, bad shoes should never happen to good outfits.
