Who doesn’t love something that sparkles and shines? No one. Exactly.  On the top of the list are things like baubles and beads, bracelets and pendants. However in a close second, we are lead to another extremity entirely, our feet.  The sparkly shoe has had a hold on our hearts ever since we witnessed Dorothy click her heels and Cinderella get reunited with her famed glass slipper.  The sparkly shoe adds a touch of femininity to any ensemble and makes us feel dressed-up and special.  Whether adorned in glitter, crystals, rhinestone, sequins or other, there is something more fun, more flirtatious and more feminine about a shoe that shimmers.

This season we have seen the shimmery shoe in just about every style imaginable.  From the classic pump, to the oxford, to the ballet flat, to that imprudently high platform, all styles seem to have been updated with shine and shimmer.  In addition, this style is perfectly well suited for the holiday party circuit, which is currently in full swing.  A great sparkly pump can dress up that basic black dress and make your outfit extra special.  This holiday season indulge in a little shimmer and glamour and invest in a pair of show-stopping sparkly kicks.
