I am a loyal reader of your blog. Just read the latest entry re: New Year's Eve & need some fashion advice. Already purchased this Rebecca Taylor strapless metallic dress for New Year's Eve, now in search of the perfect shoe....
I am looking for a fun, feminine pump/heel and do not want to pay $$$ for CLs or Jimmy Choo. Cannot find anything that works for less than $300. I even looked @ Polyvore styles but just cannot justify the cost for a pair of heels that I will most likely wear once !
Any suggestions from one fashionista to another ?
I think a lot of people have similar problems with NYE/Party dresses- what shoe do I wear with this sparkly, sequin, fun party dress!?

Yes, they were absolutely stunning, but I have NOT worn them since my wedding day. I thought I would wear them again, but I have not. If I could do it all over again, I would have purchased a more versatile, perhaps basic Manolo or Louboutin rather than this crazy one.
Back to the NYE dress question- I think tights are a necessity because, not only is it going to be freezing, but I always feel more secure in tights. I guess it's knowing that someone is not going to see a butt cheek if you bend over the slightest bit. All in all, tights are a great option, and with this dress, I would do black (yes, black! Color matching is so passe!)
Taking all of that advice into consideration, here is my Polyvore I have created for this outfit:
The reader said she wanted an inexpensive, but yet versatile shoe. I chose a gold Dolce Vita pump that I think could be worn again. It's fairly inexpensive and I think it goes great with the gold detailing in the dress. As an added bonus, these shoes are via www.endless.com and you get an extra 25 off of $100.00 or over purchase!
I accessorized with a gold Lauren Merkin clutch, gold chandelier earrings, and a gold cocktail ring.Remember, if you have a fashion question do not hesitate to email me! I live for this kind of stuff :)
