I’m a sucker for any holiday, especially one that has fireworks, sweet treats and, of course, partying. Yes, I’m talking about the upcoming Chinese New Year. The 23rd of January will see the beginning of the Year of the Dragon which is said to be a transformational, life-changing year.
Net-a-Porter is in a similarly festive mood, featuring items decked in the red and gold colors associated with Chinese celebration! Their collection is gorgeous! And the shoes are very much on the mark as far as the theme is concerned. I picked out 3 favorites: glamorous pumps and sandals apt for such an explosive occasion!
Embroidered suede sandals, $795, Vionnet
Emulate the wavy movement of the Chinese dragon with these high-heeled platform sandals from Vionnet. It features red, black and white embroidery on its suede body on top of over 5 inches of patent leather heels! Highly recommended with a short, bright red dress!
Bunting metallic leather sandals, $895, Jimmy Choo
Count on Jimmy Choo to bring on the glamour with the artistic application of bunting! The slim gold leather and cutout black twill straps of these high-heeled sandals are reminiscent of Oriental room dividers that veil as well as reveal. Your gold crepe dress or metallic-themed outfit will find its match with these beautiful sandals.
Your LBD will appreciate this zingy pair of pumps from Charlotte Olympia! It features red and hot pink silk satin in an unlikely updating of the hot red shoes! Along with a shockingly red shade of lipstick, even you will stand out in a festival of fire-breathing dragons. Kung Hei Fat Choi!
