Most of the the time, I prefer simple shoes with interesting structure and beautiful material that does the speaking. But occasionally I’ll come across an embellished pair that I absolutely love.
Maybe it’s because a friend of mine is getting married soon that I’ve suddenly become obsessed with elegant, delicate, and feminine formal sandals. I’m not anywhere close to walking down the isle, but if I were, I know I’d probably spend more on my shoes than on the dress or jewelry I’d wear.
How wonderful it is that Tuesday Shoesday falls on New Year’s Eve, a night during which every shoe lover should don their most fantastic footwear to great the new year! I was lucky enough to find these lovelies from the Ralph Lauren Collection some time ago and have been waiting for the perfect occasion to wear them. My NYE celebrations aren’t exactly a place for designer footwear (I care about my shoes too much to subject them to spilled drinks and clumsy dancing) so I’ll be saving these for another special event, such as Valentine’s day.
If I ever had to style an outfit for a formal evening event, I would definitely start with the shoes. Depending on my mood, my taste in evening shoes ranges from simple and elegant to glamorous and sexy. These lovely rhinestone sandals from Express fall somewhere in between, which is a very nice mix. The sandal is simple enough to go with anything, but still has at little extra bling to make it stand out.
