Festive Friday Countdown feat - CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Gwynitta Glitter Open Toe Sandal in Silver

I don't know about anyone else, but for me if these were without the signature red sole then I would have presumed them to be a Jimmy Choo sandal. They are rather delicate and pretty and fit in very well alongside styles like Lance, and in a typical sparkling metallic finish that we have become accustomed to from The Choo. They are however Louboutins this time, and it's always a pleasure to see a Loubi style with a minimalist upper and utterly devoid of mixed media/studs/fuss. These are real head turning party shoes, and are sure to be much copied and emulated.

The top down view is the clincher for me. These are utterly beautiful. I do need to own these sandals. Like, now (please).

Ultimate Christmas Shoes feat - JIMMY CHOO Sparkler pump & Maylen sandal

I defy any girl out there to say they don't covet at least one of these Jimmy Choo styles. My only concern with the Sparklet pump is of course the 'squished toes issue' that might occur, but when you see the actual craftsmanship close-up of the detail of the crystals, I think we can all just agree that we'd wear them anyway and possibly die for our art if the need arose.

If plastic fantastic really isn't your thing and perhaps you are more of a vintage / gothic / romantic girlie then these multi purpose sandals will fit the bill. I adore them deeply and would love to wear them on Christmas Day.

Which ones are your favourites?

BCBGMAXAZRIA Trill Cutout Cap Toe Booties

These are only £156 on Shopbop, and I especially like the metallic version, the cutouts are really well placed in my opinion. They make for a heel that could be dressed up or down, worn to work or with a LBD. Well played.

It's my birthday today so I will be out having a fun day off as you get to read this, probably eating out, definitely buying new shoes (as you do) and generally enjoying being 21 yet again! See you tomorrow x I'm off now to enjoy plenty of this...

JEFFREY CAMPBELL Essie Brown Pointed Toe Over The Knee Boots

I don't really 'get it' if I'm being totally honest. Jeffrey Campbell shoes are a bit of a mystery to me. While I've undoubtedly warmed to them a little since my first look at the Lita style ankle boots, I remain forever unconvinced. Some of the styles are just darling. Some of them are completely off the wall crazy with a hefty dose of ugly thrown in for good measure. The good? Think Solitaire in pink or purple for Nasty Gal. Those heels are beautiful, girlie, vibrant and most of all really, really pretty. But for every one of those (also notable exceptions include the very cute Skulltini loafers and France boots) but then just when you think things are going in a slightly more normal vein we get THESE!!!

Having said all of that the Essie boots above are possibly his most normal to date. I rather like them even if they do sit as somewhat out of place alongside some of the other designs. Pair them with a flounced mini skirt and a fitted jacket as below.

GUCCI Ursula Cage High Heel Sandal in Red or Black

It's true to say on record that Gucci heels, while teeteringly high, have been hands down some of the most comfortable heels I have ever worn. The leather used is of the very highest quality and so even though heels with multiple super-thin straps like these cage sandals can be uncomfortable and problematic, I imagine that these would be just fine.

Couple that with a bold chunky cuff at the top and I must admit they have left me swooning at them shamelessly! And if you are in the market for a new dress for the Christmas season then you could do worse than try one of my personal picks below (which would all look just amazing with the little Gucci heels, but of course).
