This 'Showgirl' style from Miss Selfridge has already established itself as a big-hitter for the 2012 party season, so we're advising readers who love the look to stock up now before stock begins to disappear. The simple platform Mary Jane with its 'starburst' detailing is a real winner for this season, and we love its timeless appeal. Not too showy (despite the name) it flashes just a bit of tassel to keep onlookers excited!

The shoes and their metallic 'starburst' strips are a bronzey colour: a slightly darker and more opulent shade of the rose gold that was such a huge fashion obsession over the summer. We like this tawny shade, which we can't help thinking will look wonderful under deep red baubles and with a mince pie in hand! But we're not allowed to talk about Christmas yet - we've still got Halloween and all the spooky footwear it brings to think about!
