Sparkles and Shoes, Sparkles and Shoes. It is the name of the blog but according to a handful of readers I do not talk about Sparkles or Shoes enough. Well ladies, today I plan to change that. More than a year ago I began a series called my dream shoes and covered a variety of categories and recently I have taken a break but I am going to restart the series today!
I am not sure what it is about this year but I am extra excited about the Oscars. If I had to guess, it is because I thought that Eddie Redmayne’s portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything was an Oscar-worthy performance if I have ever seen one (I have mentioned here and here) and because I have been underwhelmed by this year’s red carpets and am hoping Sunday night makes up for it. As you saw on Monday, if I was able to attend the show I would go full red carpet glamour with my makeup but the dress and shoes would play an important role. Last year one of the stand-out pairs of shoes were Giuliana Rancic’s nude satin bejeweled web-strap Sergio Rossi stilettos.
Today, these are the shoes that I would wear to the 87th Academy Awards this weekend. Granted, the shoes would be determined by the dress and hopefully with the guidance of a masterful celebrity stylist like Micaela Erlanger by my side. These are my top six:
Which pair would you wear?
And stay tuned Monday for my best dressed from the awards!
