December 2017 Favorites

Sunday, January 07, 2018

         Hope you had a wonderful holiday season!  This favorites post is sweet and simple because I dedicated my time in December to shopping for presents for family members and spending quality time with them.  There is nothing more heartwarming than giving to others from my heart, but I did treat myself to these two gorgeous heels in between shopping for others, wrapping gifts, and decorating gingerbread houses.  

        These Valentino pointed pumps are the most perfect pair of crimson heels I have ever owned.  I purchased them at Nordstrom Rack for a style steal of $240.  I have never found Valentino heels at the Rack, let alone, under $500!  Although I never wore them out, I paraded them around the house countless times.  I mean, I had to break them in, right? Maybe I am a bit "extra," but these are so comfortable and I cannot wait to wear them with black and white ensembles for a pop of color.

        These emerald Manolo Blahnik beauties have been on my radar for months now.  I first saw them at Nordstrom last October, but I decided to save my hard-earned money for Christmas gifts before splurging on myself.  So, I gracefully glided my hands upon the soft velvet and reluctantly placed these heels back on the shelf.  Fast forward to last month- I decided to take the plunge after successfully finishing my Christmas shopping.  As soon as I tried them on, I didn't even have to look in the mirror to declare them mine.  They have an exquisite vintage appearance while the jeweled brooch adds an elegant and classy touch!  
        Now that I've added two new pointed heels to my collection of shoes, stay tuned to see how I style them in future outfit posts!  So . . . are you like me and splurged on a gift (or two) for yourself this year after buying gifts for those you love?  Let me know in the comments below because I would love to know what you purchased!  Until my next post, I am sending you lots of love from my heart to yours!
