I wore this look for a fancy New Year’s Eve dinner with my boyfriend and his family. I’m always afraid of being overdressed, but I figured since it was New Year’s that I could go all out. I bought the dress, bracelet, and earrings while I was studying in France. I’ve never been able to wear heels for more than half an hour, but I decided that the dress definitely deserved pumps. That led me on a quest to find the perfect pair. I originally wanted black, but after striking out many a time (non-leather shoes can be quite hard to find) I found these sparkly pumps for 60% off at a Payless that was going out of business! I found the perfect cocktail ring at Macy’s and then the outfit was complete. Surprisingly I managed to wear the shoes all night, thanks to the help of about four million padded shoe inserts of various varieties.
