SHOESDAY! (A Very Special Holiday Edition)

When I went out on my quest to find you the best, the prettiest, the most awesome shoes on the internets, I was shocked – SHOCKED – to see that there are now links to “the first peeks at the new spring shoes.” And, of course, by shocked, I mean ecstatic.

BUT- we are not quite ready for spring yet. There will be no spring shoesday p0rn until 2011. Today, in the spirit of the holidays (go YULE!), we have holiday party shoes.

I also wanted to share with you some stocking stuffer ideas from Neiman Marcus – in case you had a bit of cash to spend on a stocking stuffer. Let me know if you need my address!

FIRST – the stuffers. So affordable!

Dior Flat Cannage Pouch - only $400!

Who among us doesn’t need a great case for their iPhone? And, by great, I mean this:

Dolce & Gabbana Chain-Strap iPhone Case (only $545!)

Hmmm…I hope my Droid fits in that!

No idea what to get that pill popping fancy-pants lady in your life? Look no further:

Judith Leiber Rabbit Pill Box (only $695!)

No shoesday stocking stuffer posting would be complete if I didn’t suggest stuffing her stocking (dirty!) with a pair of shoes. And these are practical. I’ve seen similar things at places like Nordstrom Rack & thought about picking up a pair. I’m so glad I waited, though. I’m sure I’ll find these in my stocking come Christmas Day!

Sue London Foldable Ballerina Flat - only $179!

And now, for those holiday shoes. I’ll admit, I didn’t look so much for affordable on these. They were all so pretty! But, they are (mostly) kind of expensive for shoes that don’t get a lot of wear.  You should just be glad I’m not actually picturing the $525 (on sale! it’s a bargain!) shoes that are trimmed in “genuine goat fur.”

You all (or, since I’m headed to Georgia at the end of the week “Y’All [do I capitalize the A?]) know I’ve been craving purple shoes. These are so delightfully purple AND they have a festive bow AND they are satin – so, you know, practical for the rainy Pacific NW:

BP. 'Ambrosia' Pump

These are so pretty! And sparkly! And kate spade-y! And flat! (for my poor, abused feet.) However, there is also a higher version, in case you haven’t recently had foot surgery.

How freaking adorable are these? So pretty & shiny & red. With a bow (apparently, I’m all about the bows today). They are a wee bit expensive, though. *sigh*

Valentino Bow Trim d'Orsay Pump

These are a bit more affordable, and almost as cute:

J. Reneé 'Gabriele' Pump

I love these. So pretty & elegant. That touch of red (bow!) is just gorgeous.

And finally, shoes near & dear to my own heart. By which I mean, some day, with god as my witness, I will own a pair of Louboutins. These are actually almost affordable. I mean, they’re less than my laptop! And much, much sparklier.

Christian Louboutin Pigalle Glittered Pump

So – happy shopping, my shoe lovers!  Have a great Yule and/or Christmas (or Boxing Day, or whatever – Hannukah is over, so I missed the boat on that one…).

We’ll be back with the first peek at the spring lines on January 4!  (Of course, there will be other non-shoe content between now & then…)

  1. Nope. Don’t capitalize the “a” in “y’all.” Love the shoes. The Valentino ones are my favs. Whereabouts in Georgia are you headed? I’m from there, you know. 🙂

    • thanks for the southern spelling tip! 🙂 I am headed to Atlanta (with a day trip to Birmingham). The architect is an Atlantean. (Atlantan? Atlanta-ite?)

      • I think “Atlantan” is correct. 🙂 Husband and I both grew up in Marietta, an Atlanta suburb. Safe travels and happy holidays to you and the architect!

  2. There is not one pair of those shoes that I don’t love; however I will have to admire them from afar and dream about them.

  3. Fun! I like the Kate Spade black & red heels, but BP woudl be more reasonable… Love the shoe-watching!
