Twinkle Toes

Kate Spade

Right now I can't get enough of all the sparkly flats that are popping up just in time for the holidays. Bedecked in sequins, rhinestones or even ornate broaches, these shoes are all on trend and perfect for holiday parties -- especially if you're playing hostess or know in advance there won't be much opportunity to sit down and rest your heels. Try them in shades of gray, plum or in metallics to update last season's outfit. Dress them up with a cute party dress or down with jeans and a casual top. Whatever you decide to pair them with, you're guaranteed to be the life of the party with your cute (and comfortable) twinkle toes.

I'm really liking the sequins. I saw a pair of yellow box flats at a store here that had nailhead looking studs. Wish they had my size :( I like the embellished look!

You've picked out some amazing examples! I saw a pretty pair at Target the other day but took a pass because at $12.99 I wondered if they would fall apart after the first wearing. But now I'm thinking (after looking at all the prices of these!!) that the Target pair might be worth even just a couple wearings after all.

Janell - At under $13, those shoes are a steal! Definitely worth it even if they don't last past the holiday season.

I love cute flats and these are great selections. I saw a pretty gold pair at Banana this weekend that was hard to resist.

Love the cute flats... need to pick up a pair, I think. Nice break from the heels. ;-) And thanks for the Kate Spade FYI! I used to get the emails.. (guess I wasn't buying enough!!??)

Love the flats from Lanvin, but just not in the budget!

Oh my goodness, would of guessed I'd have to fall in love with the #6 Lanvins too. Good to know that my back-ups are a much cheaper #5. But in reality, the Jeffrey Campbells that I actually did buy will have to do. They are all most exactly the same but have a large bow with metal studs. Great pics Averill. Kate Spade is definitely getting my attention this fall. One of these days I just may run into you in Sugar Land!

I LOVE these shoes. I haven't bought any yet, but being pregnant sort of necessitates wearing flats, for me at least. I love your choices and might have to make a trip to DSW this week!
