It’s exactly one month to Christmas and I couldn’t let this significant point in the Christmas countdown pass without a little acknowledgement and a lot of shoes. Festive shoes to be precise. Yes, I’ve scoured the shops for the most festive footwear, Christmassy courts and holiday heels, and now I’m sharing the results of my santa shoe shopping with you. We all need a pair of sparkly heels for the party season so I’ve come up with the a selection of the prettiest shoes at the lowest prices so that you’ve got more pennies in your pocket to spend on stocking fillers this Christmas while still having something special to slip your feet into when you’re heading off to that big night out or office Christmas party.
First up are a selection of shoes from ASOS. They currently have a 25% discount on party-wear so it’s a good idea to check out the website at the moment to bag yourself a festive bargain. I found glitzy shoes from a few different brands on the ASOS website including these gold ballerina pumps, which are under £10 and originally from New Look, and they would be great for all-day office-to-party wear. These silver heels are the kind of shoes that I’d expect Elsa from Frozen to wear beneath her snowflake gown so I’d love to wear a pair this Christmas. Plus, at under £15 they’re a great bargain to wear all your round and are just right for New Years eve parties too! And finally, I couldn’t resist these ASOS brand snowman socks. Although I might not wear them on a night out, they would be perfect for a night in watching festive films in front of the fire and would make an ideal stocking filler.
The next place I looked was Dorothy Perkins, who are offering 30% off on shoes and dresses, and I found these irresistible silver platform courts. This is such a Cinderella-esque shoe, so these glittery heels are very apt for this time of year, with it being pantomime season! I also found these red suede kitten heels by Dune in the Dorothy Perkins sale, and I like to imagine that Mrs. Claus would be wearing the exact same shoes this Christmas! Lastly, I spotted these ‘New In’ bronze glitter heels which are super-classy and would look amazing with any party outfit over the Christmas period. Don’t forget that Dorothy Perkins offers student discount with an NUS card too, so you could pick up a real bargain there!
A shop that I’ve been visiting a lot recently (nothing to do with Monty the Penguin, honest!) is John Lewis and I’ve been pleasantly surprised by all their amazing festive goodies. I’m not just talking about shoes – although this selection of party heels is particularly amazing! – but their decorations, gifts and cosy festive homewares too (which I wrote about last week). I’m keeping an eye out for the new delivery of penguins too!
Lastly, I went all out to find some ultimate festive footwear and here’s what I found from designer Charlotte Olympia. I always love her fun designs and have written about her collections on a number of occasions over the past few years. These are the ultimate shoes Christmas shoes in my opinion – on a par with festive jumpers! – and even though I might not be able to afford them, I can at least try to win them when the ‘spin it to win it’ Christmas competition launches on the UK Charlotte Olympia website on December 1st, woop!
I hope you enjoy the run-up to Christmas and let me know if you have a favourite pair of sparkly shoes that you love to wear during the festive season – leave me a comment below or tweet me a pic @Cassiefairy.
