Must Haves: Sparkly, Glittery, Sequin-y Shoes To Win New Year’s Eve

When it comes to New Year’s Eve, the goal of your outfit should be to make the disco ball jealous. The more sequins, glitter, rhinestones, and sparkle, the better. Don’t stop at a sequined dress — go all out with some truly show-stopping sparkly shoes, too! Here are 10 pairs I’m currently drooling over, most of which are around $50 or less. Oh, and they’re all from Zappos, because their shipping is so scary-fast that you’ll be sure to receive your fancy footwear by NYE (I swear I wasn’t paid to say any of that, I’m just obsessed with Zappos and secretly believe they employ precogs to ship my shoes before I even order them). Anyway, click on the gallery to let the New Year’s Eve sequined shoe parade begin!

Shop The Trend: Bright & Cool Kicks

I’ve never been a total girly-girl. For years, my personal style was pretty tomboyish: baggy pants, plain T-shirts, Doc Martens or Chuck Taylors, you get the picture. Once I moved to New York and started working in an industry that can be very image conscious, I definitely “tried on” a girlier sense of style. It took a while to figure out what I was ultimately comfortable in, but at 34, I can safely say that my sartorial instincts are a mixture of both. For example, if I’m going to wear a plaid flannel shirt, I’d ideally pair it with sky-high heels. So when I noticed a number of street style photos of super chic women pairing feminine cut pants, dresses, blouses and skirts with bright and sporty running sneakers, I was instantly intrigued. Click through my earlier Street Style Spotlight gallery for inspiration, and then check out the 10 cool sneaker options I found here…

Street Style Spotlight: 15 Ways To Sport Sneakers

Trainers. Sneakers. Tennis shoes. Whatever you call them, sporty running shoes are not just for working out. A trend I’ve noticed like crazy across street style blogs of late is super fashionable women pairing their bright and funky trainers with outfits you’d never expect. Leather pants! Girly blouses! Ladylike coats! Imagine that trend in the ’80s, where working women would wear their running shoes while commuting, only the shoes stay on all day and actually look awesome instead of frumpy. I am into this trend! And I’m sure you will be too once you’ve clicked through these street style shots for inspiration…

Would You Wear These Pricey Designer Flip-Flops?

I don’t blame you if flip-flops are one of the very last things on your mind today. I know that I am personally far more concerned with hunting down functional yet stylish all-weather boots (digression: do these exist, and if so, please point me in the right direction) and a down jacket that won’t make me look like I’ve been pumped full of air from the neck down. In fact, just this morning I wondered aloud, “Will I ever feel warmth again?” Keep reading »

Artist Turns His Ex-Girlfriends Into Shoes

In his new project, 12 SHOES for 12 LOVERS, artist Sebastian Errazuriz puts all of his past relationships on display as a collection of shoes. “When I started this process I never imagined where it would end up, it’s been infinitely more complex, revealing and difficult than I thought,” said Errazuriz, whose Shoes are currently on display in Miami. Well,I would think so.

His Shoes, with names like “The Rock,” “The Boss,” “The Virgin,” “The Hot Bitch,” “The Gold Digger” and the “Cry Baby” include personal photos and stories in which Errazuriz reveals “a glimpse of each relationship and in the process exposes himself to scrutiny and judgment.” (He also shares intimate details, which I’m sure they’re thrilled about.) The women’s names have been changed to protect their identities, but I’m sure they know who they are. And now, you will spend the rest of the day imagining what you would look like as a high heel. I think the shoe version of me would definitely have a face. After the jump, you can see a couple more of Errazuriz’s Shoes, I mean exes. [Laughing Squid] Keep reading »

Orange Crocs Are Being Discontinued, So Mario Batali Ordered 200 Pairs

Mario Batali orange Crocs

Carrie Bradshaw and her “Carrie” necklace. Karl Lagerfeld and his black sunglasses. Mario Batali and his orange crocs. Some pairings are just go together like peanut better and jelly. Which is why when Crocs announced it would be discontinuing its orange shoes, Batali did the only rational thing and ordered 200 pairs of them. He admitted in Details that he got the last 200 pairs of orange Crocs ever via a special order. But for anyone dying to dress like Mario Batali next Halloween or just wear hideous shoes for the hell of it, a spokesperson confirmed to the blog Eater that there’s still a line of orange Crocs for Batali to wear when his bounty runs out. Crocs has made special Bistro Mario Batali and Bistro Mario Batali Vent Clogs in both orange and black, since 2007. The shoes are the same as the orange Crocs, only they feature the celebrity chef’s signature on them and promise to be especially comfortable for food industry folks who are on their feet all day. However,  if you want normal orange Crocs and not the special orange ones, you’ll have to appeal to Mr. Batali himself. [Eater] [Photo: Getty]
