Flats for the Festivities

I know, Christmas has already past, but New Years is certainly on its way! And what better New Years resolution than to feel more confident this year. As much as I rave and rant about heels, there is no pair of shoes compared to glamorous flats that can actually make a woman feel more confident in her own skin. You won't be worrying about your feet hurting all night or if you might fall on the dance floor after one too many glasses of champagne. You will simply slip them on and completely forget about them, that is of course until someone compliments you on how fashionable you are.

All you need is a pair of flats that stand out, whether it be an embellishment, sequins, or animal print.

There is only one little problem. If your feet are bigger than a size 8 they might look that way. The trick? The bigger your feet are, the darker the shade you must wear. So if you are a size 9-10 1/2, go for the black sequin, or a navy blue with a bold embellishment.

So stay comfortable and confident this season and don't worry about any mishaps during your New Years Eve Party!

Perfect Match

During this time of year we are all invited to different events and parties. The best part about it? Shopping for the perfect outfit! However, many times I will have an outfit all together, but can't seem to find a perfect pair of shoes to go with it. Not only that, I will tend to come up with the perfect shoe in my head before I find it. For example, I had an 80's party to attend and I had the perfect outfit. The more I looked at my outfit the more I realized that the perfect shoes to go with everything would be black and white snake skin heels. Even though that is not too hard to find, I was looking for something more specific. I was looking for 3 in heels without a pump. As simple as that sounds, all I could find were pumps that were 4 1/2 inches or higher. Sometimes it seems like the second you start looking for something, that's the only time you can't find it. Well I have discovered something that will save all women from this problem.

There are tons of "Design Your Own Shoe" websites! Some of these sites have 50 color options to pick from with 20 different style shoes. That isn't even the best part. Instead of a pair you spend $80 that you are not in love with, you can spend the $10 extra and create your very own unique set. There are no limits and every site has different options. You could have lime green lining with a pink heel while the rest of the shoe is gold metallic (That's just an example). Even if you're not looking for anything in particular, I suggest googling "Design your own shoes" and trying it out. Don't be afraid to use your imagination!

In the Nude

How can a woman look naked without actually being naked? As you've seen in so many music videos and recent VMA's, celebrities wear glittery, skin tone outfits (you may recall Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez). It gives the illusion that they aren't wearing anything and are covered in sparkles! Well if you don't want to be that risky, you can try one article of clothing, which in my opinion, would be shoes. The reason is that you won't feel self conscious in them unlike a nude blouse or shorts which you might worry if it might be too inappropriate.
If you don't believe me, you don't have to, because its a huge trend right now! And it won't be going out of style anytime soon. Want to know why?
These magicians look so good on your feet because it gives the illusion of legs for miles. That's right, your legs will look longer and more slender. So, if you are 5'3 and under and don't feel like wearing those 5 1/2 inch heels, this is the trick for you.
Also, these will be your go-to-shoe. What does this mean? It means that you wont be reaching for your favorite black pair anymore. If you are afraid that nude might be too plain or boring of a color, you are mistaken. Black and darker colored shoes will cut your leg off at the ankle. Sure, you might get the compliment "cute shoes," but when you wear nude shoes, you get "great legs!" Because this pair makes it so its not about your feet anymore, its about YOU and your curves.
TIP:     Moisturize your legs with lotion that has a little bit of body shimmer. It will give that airbrush effect!
