We loved hearing about the trinkets of thanks you wore last week – we hope they gave your Thanksgiving an extra grateful glow! This week our Goodwill Gem is a little more naughty than nice, but we think the act of giving back while you give your wardrobe a boost is 100% worthy of a holiday hooray. Our Lauren Haslett toured the Goodwill stores for this week’s party-perfect find: Skin-Toned Stilettos with Style!
Planning to turn some heads this holiday season? If you’re hoping to catch a particular someone’s eye or to snag a kiss under the mistletoe this December, this week’s Goodwill gem is the kind of piece that will help you do just that. You’ll be sure to grab some attention at a festive bash this year if you’re wearing a stunning pair of studded leather heels like this one. Find a pair in your skin tone and your legs will go for miles!
The stiletto heel will draw any onlooker’s eye instantly up to your legs, which will look long and slender in these sizzlin’ shoes. The peep toe will let you show off a holiday pedicure while the gold studs and zipper make these shoes stand out from all the others in a crowded, guest-packed room. And though they’re super sexy, the practical platform is also kind to your feet. Everything a girl needs in one party-perfect pair of shoes – and at a Goodwill price, what a steal!
These heels have a lot going on, and several distinctive accents that make them anything but plain or ordinary, but choosing a pair that matches you skin tone makes them easy to pair with your favorite winter party ensembles – especially if your most beloved pieces happen to be in rich jewel tones perfect for the season, like deep cranberries, plums or dark piney greens.
Here, I’ve put on a slim-cut cocktail dress in a gorgeous navy hue – classy and appropriate for any holiday affair. The tall stiletto emphasizes the long skirt of the dress and the long, lean lines such a smoothly-transitioned heel creates on the body.
This shoe is unique enough to add visual interest to the overall look, but not too loud or flashy, so it doesn’t fight with the shine and glamour factor of this elegant dress. Add a simple, understated piece of jewelry – preferably in a matte gold to repeat the studded detailing in the shoes – and you’re looking festive, fabulous and ready for even the chicest holiday party.
