We’ve all been there, we fall head over heels (sorry for the early pun) for a pair of party shoes even though we know they’ll be uncomfy and we’ll be dancing all night. Then surprise surprise, we’re left sat down, rubbing our feet, hobbling to get a taxi and, some girls, even opt for walking through the streets with no shoes on at all!
Well no more girlies! Not only am I going to introduce to you some of my most lusted-after party footwear, but I’m also going to provide the solution to all those aches, pinches and general uncomfyness.
OK, so first things first, let’s take a look at our party heels…
I love a statement heel and don’t think you can make more of a statement than in caged strappy styles, lots of glitter and chunky ankle cuffs.
I absolutely love the KG Happy Bow heels as well as Shoe Box’s Cordelia glitter platform shoes in a range of glittery hues! They’re very different to each other – KG is more sleek and classic looking, but the dramatic heel and bow ankle cuff make all the difference. Whereas, the Cordelia glitter platforms are just glitzy glam at its best – perfect for twinkling under dance floor lights this party season!
If you want to try a more old school appeal to partywear then pointed toes are you’re best bet and Dune have some beautiful two part pointed court shoes in black and leopard print for 80s-inspired chic.
Or for silver screen starlet style why not try Myleene Klass’ Electra asymmetrical pointed shoes in gold with a beautiful floor-length dress for the ultimate in black tie dressing?
So you’ve picked your heels, now what? Two words ladies…Butterfly Twists.
Some of you may not have heard of these beauties, but in a nut shell they’re basically super cute flats that you can fold up and pop in your bag and get out at the end of the night when heading home.
So rather than taking your heels off and wandering barefoot through town, you’ll have a lovely pair of chic flats (with memory foam sole) to keep you comfy (and safe) as you run past girls hobbling in their heels, jumping into a taxi before them!
I love our cute collection of twists – you can really match them with your party outfit! There’s everything from gold and silver to black, embellished and leopard prints. I absolutely adore the animal print pair for a real sense of fun as you head from the takeaway in the direction of the taxi queue!
