The Ten Best Shoes for Holidays and Evening

We are half way through December, where many holiday parties are going on and New Year’s Eve celebrations are two weeks away. Are you still looking for the perfect shoes for the dresses you picked up for your special occasions? Here are my top ten shoe picks, listed based by the designer name in alphabetical order.


Christian Louboutin – No Prive Glitter Slingback Rogue Lipstick Pump
I love wearing red glitter shoes, especially for the holiday events. This shoe will go especially well with black dresses such as Dolce&Gabbana Lace Dress.

Christian Louboutin – Very Prive Open-Toe Platform Pump

This is the classic pump that will never go out of style. I love the color contrast of the red leather open toe with the black leather body. This pump will go well with both sequined and simple black dresses.

Giuseppe Zanotti – Bejeweled Two-Tone Bow-Toe Sandal
The two-tone rhinestones bow and the t-strap complements each other well on this sandal. It will make a perfect match with dresses in almost any color such as green lace (DKNY) or black/white contrast (Eliza J – Pleated Fit & Flare dress). The sandals are on sale now for $1,050 at Bergdore Goodman (originally $1,450).

Jimmy Choo – Diva Crystal Cutout Sandal
This sand color sandal with light-catching crystals will go with many light-color elegant dresses. I’d pair it with an off-white or peachy color dress to emphasize the uniqueness of the stiletto.

Jimmy Choo – Kendall Beaded Platform Pump
This is a perfect shoe for an elegant New Year’s Eve party. What else can be better than starting the year with such gorgeous stiletto? You will certainly gain lots of attention when you make an entrance wearing this shoe.

Monalo Blahnik – BB Glitter Pump
This classic pointed toe and low-cut vamp with glitter will add some shine to any dress you wear. It comes in several colors – nude, silver, and gold. I like it in nude glitter the best, because nude matches outfits in any hues.

Rene Caovilla – Platform Strass Sandal

This platform sandal is made up thin straps of Swarovski crystals. It comes in several colors, gold/silver, blue, and silver. The design of the thin straps will add sophisticated touch to any dress you wear. I like the gold/silver pair the best, because it will match dresses in just about any color. It’s currently on sale for $854 at Neiman Marcus (originally $1,295).

Sam Edelman – Pryce Pump
I like the gold tone open toe with the black satin and spiked sparkle. I think this shoe looks the best on women in their 20s or early 30s. It’s $133.96 (33% off the original price).

Valentino – Jewelry-Bow Couture d’Orsay
This is an elegant stiletto in satin with a fun twist of crystal-encrusted golden bow at the peep-toe vamp. I think it will look especially great on women in their 30s and above in evening dresses.
