SHOESday: Red for formal Christmas party

As promised, this week's installment of red for Christmas is the formal Christmas party shoe - strappy and pretty, not over the top and with not too high a heel so that you can comfortably stand or dance all night in these babies!These are another bargain from Zara in the UK, purchased about 4 years ago. I remember the first time I wore them. We were in Singapore and had a disastrous evening - could not find the very nice restaurant we wanted to go to for dinner so settled for something else which was not great (not terrible, just not great) and then couldn't get a cab home and so had to walk for miles (well, it felt like it, I'm sure it wasn't that far), had a fight and I got blisters on the backs of both heels from the shoes (sigh...). Fortunately, that is the only time they ever bit my feet, now they are very well behaved!

Another pair of fab-O Red shoes. I think you need to tell us before years ends your shoe tally eg. how many red pairs, black etc...it may scare us...but I think mostly it will amaze.

I love them but would have to save them for say, Memorial Day or 4th of July or other time of year when bare toes wouldnt't get you frostbite. I like that height heel. Just enough but they look comfy.

why is it the not being able to find the restaurant and not being able to get the cab night always coincides with the had a fight night?

lovely shoes! party well.

Those are wonderful and festive, though I agree with Momolla, you couldn't wear them up here for Christmas unless you weren't going outside at all. I say this as though I haven't worn gorgeous shoes regardless of the temps...

you have been a bad influence on nadie - she's taking that whole concept of " if you like them that much, buy two" very seriously :]

Pretty!
They look so thin, you can probably feel every tiny ant crunch under it!?!
