Happy holidays

'Tis the season to be jolly!

Wishing you all have a fabulous Christmas! xxx

Shoe of the week

If you can't wear glitter at Christmas, then when can you wear it?

For Cinderellas on a budget, these glittery heels mean you can go to the Ball in style, just don't forget what happens at Midnight!

And the celebrations started early . . .

I received an early Christmas present with the news that I have passed the CIPR Advanced Certificate in PR.  Its been a long, hard year, trying to balance work, life and college but I've done it.  Naturally this was a great opportunity to celebrate with a Porn Star Martini at the Revolution Bar in Blackpool.

Keeping warm and chic

Shoes from Las Vegas, tights Rombo Grandi from Veneziana 

Another day, another outfit . . . With gale force winds in not-so-sunny Blackpool, keeping wrapped up and warm is a necessity.

While my workwear is currently the standard black dress and cardie, dressed up with a vintage brooch, my legwear is becoming a bit more adventurous with these tights from Veneziana.  I love these tights and accessorized them with this t-bar shoes to create a 'monochrome monday' outfit.

Shoe of the week

Is it really less than two weeks until Christmas?  Then there is still time to get something special for the festive season.

Its the perfect excuse to wear something as bright and glittery. Taking inspiration from Christmas baubles, I've found these Ted Baker shoes that will give someones Christmas that little bit of sparkle.

Surrender Dorothy

Schuh had a recent Facebook competition to win a pair of these gorgeous Lindy Hop shoes.  I knew I had to try for a chance in winning a pair of shoes that rival those Ruby slippers from Oz (can you tell I've been to see Wicked recently?).

To win a pair of these Red or Dead shoes, I had to leave a Facebook comment telling Schuh the strangest place I've ever found myself dancing.  I was one of three lucky ladies...I knew that attending a party in a disused morgue would one day come in handy!   On New Years Eve 2000, I attended a private party at a old-school morgue - think mortuary slabs used for the DJ's decks, cold store cupboards used to keep the beers and bottles cool.  It was a really spooky, think the opening scene in Blade to get an idea of the vibe created by the unique venue.

So my winning entry meant that I got these beauties less than two days later.  After care consideration and consultation with friends and family, I chose a pair in red.  Perfect for the Christmas season, all sparkly and ready to party (although I won't be visiting any morgues this year).  I cannot tell you how comfortable these shoes are, they are amazing.  The only problem I have now is finding the perfect outfit for them. 

Pretty rose

I've been trying out some more products from the lovely people at Veneziana. Rather than stick to tights, I've been trying out their ankle socks, over the knee stockings and knee highs.

The Opera Nero knee highs in black are really pretty, quite a difference to my normal opaque tights, I felt like a grown up Wednesday Addams.  Received lots of comments from my family on the pretty floral pattern.  Lovely to wear, great quality and most importantly easy to wash.   Veneziana has a lot to offer for a girl with too many shoes!

Sweet treat

It was my 42nd birthday on Tuesday and surprisingly I got a shoe box shaped parcel to open . . .

I'd previously blogged about these shoes a few weeks ago, nominating them as a shoe of the week, so its nice to put my or should I say my husband's 'money where my mouth is' and buy the shoes that I chosen.

Opening the Tutti Fruiti shoes was like unwrapping some sweets!   Layer upon layer of loveliness before revealing the shoes in hot pink and orange. I've got my pointy stiletto groove back on. Each shoe has its own individual shoe bag, perfect for packing in a suitcase. And I should give a final mention to the glitter soles, what more could a 'shoe-aholic' wish for?  Perhaps a fabulous outfit and a nice cocktail to go with them!

sweet shop style wrapping paper, great to keep with the Kandee Shoes concept

A little extra, cute card holder

Shoe of the week

Its the first of December, time to get those Christmas plans kick-started.  Glitter should be an essential part of your party wardrobe.  During December, my shoe of the week posts will be dedicated to pursuit of all shoes sparkly.

These shoe boots from Next would be the perfect way to get your 'glitter on' ladies.  Happy Shopping!
