When I was little, my favorite book was titled New Blues Shoes. It was about a girl whose mother always bought her brown shoes and she wanted blue ones. (It should come as no shock that this was my favorite story. I mean, really...) So my whole life, I felt like somehow, blue shoes seemed just a little more special. Last year I bought royal blue satin platforms with a 5" heel. They are semi-horrible to wear for more than two hours, but you know, pain for beauty (or, er...blue shoes...). And this year, I want these...
From Enzo Angiolini (ok, this one can come as a shock...last time I checked, Enzo made sensible shoes with horrifying 2-inch heels...good for them on being "back"!), these are really, well, they are just delicious. In the richest dark royal blue suede with a 5" heel and a 1" platform, these are beyond sexy. Seemingly inspired by a bit of burlesque and a hint of boudoir, these are rocking a peep-toe, a deep v on either side, the skinniest ankle strap, and a serious dose of flash. The front has a gorgeous feather-and-giant-blue/black-rhinestone embellishment that makes these even more special. Oh, and did I mention that they are $129?! That's right...they won't even eat into your money that is supposed to be for holiday gifts.
Of course, new blue shoes should always be considered a gift. Even if they are for you. So wear these to holiday parties, with your favorite LBD, with leggings, with skinny jeans...anything to show them off, and make you feel special.
