A Bold Step Out

For my birthday, I got a cool dress for going out. (Head to our Facebook page for a peak.) I could wear silver sandals with it, but I sort of want something off-beat that I can also wear with jeans or play off a conservative dress. In fact, I want something outlandish that might border on ugly -- ideally green metallic snake with a funky cut or abstract heel.

On the pretty end of the odd scale, I'm thinking about these blue satin platforms from Poetic Licence. I love the texture, and while their last bow didn't sway me, I'm sold on this one. "Mistletoe" is also available in more versatile black and taupe. For a shoe that will let me dance all night, I'm digging Kelsi Dagger's pearl trimmed "Rasha" wedge, but they remind me of a fun wedge I already have. Sans sequins, "Jasper" from Jeffrey Campbell is just a cute suede t-strap, but blinged out they walk the line between casual and festive.


On the weirder end of the spectrum, Report's "Inez" open toed floral booties could add sass to a short party dress. (I could imagine the black version with a foofy Betsey Johnson.) The discotastic "Foxy" glitter platforms from Jeffrey Campbell goes chunky where things would normally be dainty. They could be awesome with a 70s influenced dress. Oh look! It's a green snake, abstract wedge with feather and bead detail! Unfortunately, while these other shoes are all under $200, "Katja" feather wedges from Leifsdottir are nearly $500.What's a girl in love to do?
