Party feet!


I have an inner magpie that rivals old Hollywood glamour. The problem with this is that I don’t have the lifestyle to express it. Sequins and rhinestones and glitter, oh my; those are all lovely words to my ears. They enchant me with their song of ritz and glitz, I want to add feather boas and faux fur stoles to their melody and stroll.

If I can’t have that, I can have this: Tom’s silver glitter slip-ons.

I wore the discoteque on my feet all day, I’m going to do it again, too. I’d been coveting them for a while, the desire for glitter growing even more potent when my friend Nicole got a pair of gold ones. I’ve been waiting until I could justify wearing a light spring shoe. My friends, the time has come. As the day refused to quit I ran laps in what felt like slippers on my feet. Awesome slippers. One could say I’m a fan.

You really can wear something extravagant and glittery during the day, style and context are everything. The glitter made these shoes fun and gave them plenty of character, however, the casual form and style made them easy to wear with a cotton skirt and t-shirt. I chose to balance the glitter with a bold silver necklace and matching cuff. The outfit ended up well-balanced and comfortable.

    I agree about glitter during the day! Shoes, or a scarf, or nailpolish, or a rhinestone cuff, or a fabulous brooch, why not, as long as it’s mixed in with an ensemble approrpriate for your daytime event. I love having metallic flats at the ready to wear with anytime; they’re a dose of special shimmer appropriate even with jeans and a tee.

    Ooooh, Fabienne, this is a magical outfit! So much prettiness going on, my eye doesn’t know where to look, and that little shot of orange against the pale silvery blue….*swoon*
