Shoe Shine: Glitterati

Glitterati:(n.) Social elites. Famed, fashionable, adorable and learnéd. The beautiful people.(Urban Dictionary)

I have been obsessed with the idea of red glitter shoes since I first saw The Wizard of Oz at age 7. This is my grown-up glitter pair, that I wear as an homage to the heroine of the Emerald City.  Red + sparkle also = grand entrance into the month of December. I mean what says GLITTERATI SPARKLE for the HOLI-DAZE quite like glittery shoes in a spicy hot, holiday red?

Lately, I haven't many grand social events requiring a holiday bling fest, so there hasn't been whole lot of need for me to get my glitter on. That is, UNTIL, I stumbled across this brilliant term, coined by Gracey, of Fashion for Giants: GLITTER GRUNGE

Which triggered an opportunity to dress warmly, AND break out my pair of Red Glitter Shoes. And frolick around my very warm house, posing for you lovelies. As my impending "Glitterati" ensemble is Christmas-y of sorts, I will be posting it this Friday, and linking up to a #BloggersSharingStyle post over at Mis Papelicos. So, enjoy the shoes now, and check out my GLITTER GRUNGE outfit on Friday!

Ok. Now YOUR turn. What gets your heart light to shine when it comes to stellar kicks? Do share your look with a SHOE SHINE link!

Your red glitter shoes couldn't be more festive! You have created much holiday cheer, My Dear! Thank you for hosting this fab event!

Val Sparkle said...

Well, Dorothy, you do live in the Emerald City, which is also the home of grunge. All you need is a dog named Toto, and maybe a Tin Man with slightly distressed metal.

Fab shoes, and I look forward to seeing your Glitter Grunge outfit!

I should have included a close-up of the boots. Did not do that the first time. So I did it the second time. My apologies for the spam.

Thank you for the extended dates! Given we seem to know all of the same bloggers (Meghan of Cirque du Frock has definitely mentioned you), I'm surprised I hadn't taken a hop around your blog sooner!
