Christmas Party

We are all inundated with offers if nights and dinners out at this time of year to celebrate Christmas whether it is your work Christmas Party night or family parties, we are always doing something! So, you have scoured the shops and the internet and found the perfect party outfit and now you need the shoes! That’s where we come in. Dressy ankle boots, classic heels – we’ve got them all.

A huge trend this season is ankle boots teamed with dresses. Now, at the start I thought ‘not a chance’ as they will cut my 5 foot 2 inch frame off at the ankles and make me look chunky – but oh how wrong I was! They just set an outfit off to no end, but it is all in how you wear them. We have a few styles that lend themselves to this ever growing trend – some higher in the ankle, some shoe booty styles. You can wear them with tights or dare to go bare legged!

XTI Ashley is my #1 go-to for dressy occasions – the suede upper keeps it dressy whilst the contrast pewter block heel is just amazing! Available in black or grey, these are super versatile. They feature a tassel tie back detail at the heel and they are not as high as they look. For someone who doesn’t normally wear heels (I walk like a newborn giraffe in them!), these are surprisingly comfy and easy to walk in – I’m putting it down to the chunky block heel.



If you like a little bit more bling – then check out XTI Pixie. Similar in basic style to Ashley with a rich grey or black upper, contrast pewter block heel, but with this a little higher in the ankle (approx an inch) and with added diamante detailing at the full side of heel. These also feature a decorative false zip up the outside which just adds a little extra detail. Again the comfort of the block heel is spot on with this boot.
Team both of these with your favourite dressy black skinnies for that Christmas lunch out with the girlies, or that dressy mini skirt and tights (or dare to bare) to just freshen up your look. You will get so much wear from either of these boots and in both styles you have your pick of classic black or rich grey suede.


Kate Appleby Corby is a slightly more staple shoe boot, a style that a lot of ladies find a safer option than a full ankle boot. A fine dressy heel teamed with a black and gold suede upper is super classic looking, whilst a red sole makes you feel like you are wearing Louboutins. These are the perfect accompaniment to that little Christmas dress and tights. Neat at the ankle, with a side zip for easy on and off, these really do look the part.



If you are more of a fan of the traditional court shoe for going out, then the #1 go to is from our fav, Kate Appleby. Stowe is the ultimate party shoe. Stiletto heel, pointed toe with a scalloped top edge – these are amazing! These have a full sparkle/glitz upper with a suede ankle and heel unit so they definitely will catch your eye and are sure to dress up any outfit! Team with a simple LBD and let your shoes do the talking. The best part about these – the signature KA red soles.
If you want something a little more subtle, less sparkle, then Stowe is available in a simple black leather look upper, with – wait for it – leopard print heel and heel cup! These really are WOW!


Bodmin is another Kate Appleby style that you need to consider for your Christmas Party – they are ultimate party shoe. Available in red ombre and nude ombre, all complete with all over sparkle hints, these will definitely make a statement! The high shine finish looks so dressy so these would be super with your dress and tights or a pair of super skinnies! With a 3.5inch heel, Bodmin will give you such a posture boost. The hardest part is deciding what colour!



I am going to throw a wee curve ball out there with Millie &Co Frazer. This is a barely there sandal style that I see lots of ladies wearing – even in the rain and snow (practicality out the window!) Now these definitely look the part and I would be tempted for these myself with the dress I have ordered. A fine ankle and across the toe strap hold this shoe on the foot whilst a cushion offers valuable comfort under the ball of the foot. The bit I love about these is the fact that they are velvet! I mean VELVET! Swoon! So not only do these look the part, they are bang on the trend AW trend. Just make sure your pedicure is immaculate and your tan is perfect round your ankles, and tootsies! These are available in black and navy velvet, with a gold trimmed heel and ankle buckle! Love!
