Red slingbacks and red lips – A perfect Christmas party look

My Christmas look, red lips and red shoes. Suede slingbacks from Next, denim and tee from Cos, jewelry from House of Hennie.

I don't enjoy dressing up for parties anymore, I love dressing up for occasions (hey, it's what I do) but when it comes to more formal things I lose my interest. First of all, I refuse to buy something I might only wear two times a year and I much rather invest in a nice pair of shoes or a cashmere jumper. I guess I rather put my effort in an everyday casual wear that an evening gown. So this year I have two Christmas party to attend, lucky me and I'm not complaining but the what-to-wear stresses me. Well, it did until I cracked the code.

It is spelled RED SHOES & RED LIPSTICK. I mean no matter what you would wear no one can accuse you of not looking Christmasy right? I got these amazing suede slingbacks from NEXT and I know they will save me this season. Thank you Next!

What I would pair them with? I actually have no idea, I'm leaning towards black leather trousers, a simple top, and jewelry from House of Hennie, obviously.

slingbacks that I never use (but don’t want to get rid of)

slingbacksI have a problem, a problem that I honestly can't  really call a problem. A very shallow problem, but never the less a problem (don't we all just need some small non-important  problems in our life, to understand the real problems?). So here it is; I have a pair of gorgeous slingbacks by Calvin Klein that I won on Ebay a while ago, but no occasion  to wear them. It needs to be for a dinner or a night out (not the local pub) because even if you wear them with jeans you are still a bit dressed up.

I got them a couple a months ago and only wore them once, what a shame. I really need to get them slingbacks back on!
