So, I think it’s probably time to just give in to glitter, don’t you? We’re going to be inundated with it from now until Christmas (and probably afterwards, too), so rather than fight it, here are three pairs of sparkly shoes you can find at Topshop right now…
Chunky heels and platform soles have started to replace strappy stilettos as the party shoe of choice this season, and I’m not quite sure how I feel about that. On the one hand, I think these shoes look absolutely amazing in the photo (and they have a lot more impact than you’d get from a strappy sandal, that’s for sure), but on the other hand, I still feel like you’ll have to prise my stilettos off my cold, dead feet… so there’s that. I guess it’s a good job we don’t have to choose between the two styles if we don’t want to, huh?
I’m not even going to pretend I wouldn’t look a lot like one of Santa’s little helpers if I tried to wear a pair of red glitter ankle boots: I would – and, actually, I’m really curious how many of these (or shoes like these) Topshop manages to sell, because I can’t really see anyone else I know wearing them, either. The joys of living in a small village, I guess. If you could pull them off, though, there’s a great shape, and just a little bit more interesting than most of the other boots doing the rounds right now, don’t you think?
Finally, if you don’t want to go for the all-out glitter look, here’s a shoe that keeps the sparkle to the heel:
Business in front – well, sort of – party in the back: oh, and also available in black, should you prefer it!
