ALEXANDER MCQUEEN Beige Two-Tone Leather Sandals

I am just going to say this. Then perhaps you will understand my excitement at bringing you these very special heels.

These are my new favourite shoes. Possibly ever.

Enjoy the pictures. I am going to go and cry in a corner because these heels are not yet mine.

ON SALE - CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Black Matrinana 120 Crepe Satin Pumps

I found these on The Outnet reduced from £525 all the way down to £315. I know this doesn't necessarily put them on budget for everyone (sorry) but they are a significant discount, and are a beautiful and classy Louboutin style if you are in the market for a classic Christmas Day dressing up look.

They are worth it for the back view alone. Amazing.

Oh Charlotte Dellal, bless your quirky little cotton socks. Check out the description for these:

Jayne sundae is a fabulous holiday sandal with knot detail and sculptural wedge heel dripping with melting marshmallow white patent leather.

Mmm hmm, you read that right. White patent marshmallow melting drips. As you do. And I should hate them, I guess. But I don't. They are glorious and special in their own utterly bonkers way.

Welcome back to the one true Queen of Quirk. We love you CO.

STUBBS & WOOTTON Blue Skull Loafer In Navy Velvet

It's no surprise of course, as a longtime fan of Alexander McQueen and the skull motif, that I do indeed love these little loafer slippers from Stubbs and Wootton. Yes they are a little twee, utterly impractical for a winter shoe being blue velvet, and yes they have a hint of 'British Eccentric' about them. But isn't that the point? Should we not revel in these designs, and enjoy them for the frivolous fancy that they are? Can we not just appreciate them for being beautiful and fun?

I think so. I'd love to wear them. I shall hope to find them in crimson red and then I might just be tempted...

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Ograde Cross Strap Pump in Beige

These beautiful Louboutins are the first shoe-only post after two solid weeks of Christmas gifting guides. Now that you should have your Christmas shopping all in hand, we are free to sit back and look at some very pretty new-in little Loubies. I happen to think that these are rather special.

I dare you to look at the image below and tell me you don't agree...

I know.

They are a beautiful shoe, especially in the beige. The only thing that could possibly top them would be a full strass version. But for now I'm perfectly happy with the nude patent. #swoon

#ShopStyleParty Christmas/New Year Party outfit with the ShopStyle Christmas Giveaway!

Here's my competition entry mood-board for a wonderful competition I found over on The Style Rawr. Feel free to let me know what you think of my Christmas and New Year #ShopStyleParty outfit, and if you like any of the pieces you can click the links below to go shopping.

AllSaints Ramona Leather Dress

I adore this dress, not only do All Saints produce my personal favourite leather goods, but this dress is edgy and simple enough to dress it up a myriad of different ways. It's something I would feel a million dollars in every time I wore it.

AllSaints Drexel Cuff

A little bit of spiky bling just to add some extra edge to this fantastic rock chick theme outfit. I love pewter and gunmetal shades in jewellery and accessories, and this cuff is absolutely stunning.

Christian Louboutin Mado Leather Lace-Up Ankle Boots

You can't go wrong with classic black leather Loubies, but when they are also in the form of a spiked toe ankle boot? Simply divine.

Alexander McQueen Twin skull East West clutch

My beloved McQueen and the infamous skull motif are a longstanding favourite as regular readers will already know. This twin skull clutch runs the right balance of sweet and edgy to really complement the other pieces while still standing out.

Net-a-Porter Noor Fares Galactic Garden Wings rhodium-plated sterling silver multi-stone earrings

I love these, simple slick backed hair, glossy red lips and statement earrings are a really easy way to look elegent and sophisticated for evening events. These are real head-turners.

Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick

A classic deep red pout. Think Robert Palmer's 'Addicted to Love' video. Haor back, Lippy on, Smoked eyes. It's all you need.

New Cid Cosmetics I-Lash - Black 04

Just to add a little extra drama to proceedings, finish it all off with dramatic false lash strips.

You can find details of how to enter this competition right here at The Style Rawr.


Just because it's that time of year when a little bit of sparkle goes a long way...
