We approach the holidays like we do any daunting task. We take it a day at a time, a list at a time, and a cocktail at a time----slowly pacing ourselves (in great shoes, of course) through the mania of this sometimes stressful season.
One thing we hold very near and dear, is of course the importance of 1-or- 2 holiday shoes, which can later translate into our shoe arsenal for year around wear and endless compliments covered in shoe envy!
Here are our top five selects for a well rounded holiday look no matter the vibe! Happy Holidays!
1. Meeting "Ryan's" Parents for the first time Shoe.
The well seasoned guest knows you don't roll up empty handed to a home-hosted event. A bottle, a bouquet, a specially thought out gift - you know the drill. First impressions open doors, and also this extends to your shoe game.
Ted Baker Bribria in white sends a clear message: I am a sensible high femme lady who cares about being polished and pulled together, but also isn't afraid of an oversized bow now and again. This shoe says it all and more, like, "Nice to meet, you, I am liking your son Ryan, a whole lot."
2. I secretly hate the holidays but am planning the company Christmas party shoe and want to outshine all of you the night of the event shoe
Planning the office holiday is full of secret pressures (and secret evil pleasures). Everyone from accounting is judging you, you are WAY over the open bar budget with the venue, all while trying to hold it together, pretending you AREN'T trying to force a casual meet-up with Danny from the mail room under the mistletoe.
The Kat Maconie Mila is a showstopper with a statement fringe and perfect sheen and finish. Being the hostest with the mostest is one thing, but looking effortlessly haute while doing so, is even a bigger deal.
3. I just got divorced, but feeling like myself for the first time and just "doing me for once" holiday shoe.
Divorce happens, divorce sucks and it can lead to a time of serious solo drinking and internal crumbling---but it doesn't have to be! Hold your head high, start new traditions, eat the damn cookie, and work the holiday party circuit!
What better way to rise from the ashes of divorce like a reborn Phoenix than in the Kat Maconie Kylie mule. It's not overtly sexy, it's not boring, and it sends a clear message: "buying gifts for myself this year."
4. I'm going home for the holidays. Why? When 15 years later I still complain about the people, the traffic, the creepy uncles - and how I will never go back. Yet here I am ...
Going 'home' for Christmas is one thing, but getting back into your social groove in the shadows of all the past, the old boyfriends, the ancient family drama - it's a world of its own. But don't let that impact your holidays.
Sometimes in this situations, all we can do is show up, and put our best foot forward. Literally. At least your shoe game can be strong.
The United Nude Tool Hi is the perfect shoe to have in your'e 'I can get through this week' suitcase. And dare we say, no soul will want to mess with you whilst wearing these beauties!
