Shoewawa Poll: which should I wear to the Christmas Party?
The day of the office Christmas party has arrived here at Shoewawa HQ, and with just a few hours to go there's still time for me to make some last minute adjustments. My outfit, hair and makeup are all essentially sorted, but as usual, I have a huge dilemma on my hands over which shoes to wear. Can you, dear reader, help me out? Here's what I've got at my disposal...
1. Stella McCartney Shoe BootsThe Outnet a couple of years ago. I love the shape of the slightly squared-off heels and the little gold triangular accent between the heel and sole gives them real edge. They're always a squeeze to get on, but surprisingly comfortable once my feet are in them!
Pros: they look awesome, and give any outfit a note of chic. Cons: those 4-inch heels with no platform to balance them out does get tiring after a few hours, and the toes can pinch a bit.
OK so these Carvela Aurora Mary Janes (now £45 - which is far less than what I paid for them!) may not be as glamorous as some of the other contenders, but these babies make an excellent party shoe when dancing may be on the cards. They also look very cute and 20s-inspired, and I love the way the patent gleams out against the contrasting blanket stitch detail.
Pros: these are as quite honestly as comfy as a pair of trainers, and I like their slightly vintagey look. Cons: the heel is only three-and-a-bit inches high, and with a few of my stunning six-foot-plus colleagues in attendance, they won't help me in the height department much (I'm 5"1)...
Finally, some shoes that don't want to do anything BUT party! These black glitter platform heels are by Kitsch Couture at Bank Fashion and trust me, they're even higher than they look in the picture. These babies have a five-and-a-half inch heel and platform, with flat bows on the front and lashings of sparkly glitter.
Pros: What can I say - these will make me a whole 5"6 inches tall! I'll be able to talk to my colleagues...they'll also look amazing with my red tulip dress. Cons: much as I'd love to be able to dance in these, I think walking is going to be a challenge enough.
So which should I wear? You decide!
