Even if you like to leave everything until the last minute, you are probably in the final stages of your holiday gift shopping. Accordingly, there is only one thing left to do—buy a little “something special” for yourself! Yes, here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone, we wholly encourage self-gifting—and we think today’s Chic Shoe Buys story is just what you need to get started. Whether you are on the lookout for a pair of winter boots, a summer sandal, a vacation-ready flat, or a pair of glam heels, we have a little something for everyone in today’s story. Just consider it our gift to you, dear readers! Read on!
Although winter is in full swing, we can’t resist the temptation when it comes to summer sandals. For example, who could say no to Dolce & Gabbana’s Leopard-Print Leather Sandals ($485)? Not only do they provide an interesting spin on a classic print, but they are guaranteed to brighten up any summer outfit you compose. We also love Camilla Skovgaard’s Tongue Stiletto Booties ($575). To start, they are super-versatile—not only will they look good with anything from a pencil skirt to skinny jeans, but they can be worn on a slew of occasions. Plus, they are sure to catch the eye, thanks to their pretty plum hue and different textures. Rachel by Rachel Roy’s Ezrah Booties ($110) have similar appeal. In fact, there is more to these booties than meets the eye—the dark purple fabric gives way to a striking array of black leopard spots. The result is a shoe that is equally suitable for a casual office ensemble as it is for a cocktail party outfit! Speaking of parties, if you are still on the lookout for a New Year’s Eve shoe, make sure you take a look at Reiss’s Ace Crystal Sandals ($252). They are oh-so elegant, and the glimmer of crystal along the straps will ensure that these shoes catch the eye without stealing focus from the rest of your party outfit!
Of course, if you are still focused on your winter wardrobe, we have plenty of options for you—including two pairs of booties that are sure to spice up your closet. First, take a look at Shakuhachi’s Metal Toe Cap Boots ($359). On first glance, these look like your average lace-up boots, but a second look shows that they have an unexpected hint of glamour thanks to a gold cap on the toe. We love a boot that is practical and has plenty of panache! Speaking of panache, make sure you check out Mango’s Leopard-Print Leather Ankle Boots ($190). These aren’t for the faint of heart, but if you love yourself some leopard-print, these are perfect. Plus, they have a wedge heel, so you won’t be slipping and sliding in the snow! And that brings us to our last two chic shoe buys for the month, which are both sensible and yet super-stylish. We love Antik Batik’s Carillo Loafers ($288). Not only are loafers having a moment in the spotlight right now, but thanks to the smattering of metal studs, this particular pair is interesting enough to stand on its own. We also like ASOS’s Lula Color-Blocked Pumps ($45). They are basic enough that you can wear them to the office, but glam enough that you can take them straight from the office to cocktail hour. Happy shopping!
