Holiday parties present a whole host of problems, landmines and potential etiquette breaches, and we can’t pretend to solve all of them for you. What we can do, though, is make picking party shoes a little bit easier. Bea already toured you through a whole host of fancy, sparkly options, but being the resident flats aficionado, I thought it my duty to remind everyone that you don’t have to kill yourself in the name of glamour.

I am, admittedly, not a sequin girl. In the TalkShoes offices, as you might imagine, Katherine takes that title. What I am, though, is someone who appreciate ultra-modern finishing, particularly when applied to a traditional shoe or when coming from a traditional brand, and that’s why I’m really into the Gucci Ali Sequin Ballet Flats.

Ballet flats aren’t the non-heel shoe of choice in fashion at the moment (although, come to think of it, the simple ballerina is probably due for an ultra-chic revival any minute now) and have never been my personal favorite, so the combination of the shape and sequins should put me off in this situation.

Ever since Jenni Kayne’s d’Orsay flats gained traction among fashion industry insiders, the sparse, minimal construction of the d’Orsay has found its way into lots of designers’ collections. That trend appears as though it will get even bigger for spring, and my favorite version yet is this 10 Crosby Derek Lam Action Too d’Orsay Flat. I wish this picture did the shoes more justice, but they’re totally beautiful and quite reasonably priced for calf hair. Read More...

Sometimes, wearing multiple articles of clothing is just really hard. It requires making several decisions in succession, and each decision is influenced by the decision before and, and that just gets complicated and time-consuming and you just want to get dressed already, you know? Thankfully, geniuses like Tamara Mellon, formerly of Jimmy Choo, are here to help us and our puny brains out by taking one step out of the process. Read More...

Winter? Who needs it. Apparently no one on the TalkShoes team, because for this Want It Wednesday, we have chosen far more sandals to add to our wishlists than the first week of December would imply. We just can’t help it; with Resort 2014 arriving in stores and fall collections on the sale racks, we’re tempted by all that the coming months will have to offer. Read More...

“Maker of great flats” is not a descriptor most shoe fans would apply to Christian Louboutin. To be fair, most people probably wouldn’t apply that label to any of the other big-name shoe brands either; most of them have long treated non-heeled shoes as an afterthought rather than a design opportunity, and those of us who prefer a more practical shoe have been left wanting.

There are sales left and right at the moment (Need further proof? Check out the new PurseBlog Deals site!), and all of that can be a little difficult to deal with. I’ve been shopping both online and in person all weekend, and I’ve zeroed in on the Acne Donna Boots as a sale shoe that’s really worth a second look. Read More...
