It’s that time of year when one begins to wonder, “What on earth am I wearing to the New Year’s Eve party?!” I don’t know about you, but I usually wait until the last minute to decide, particularly when I’ve been so focused on holiday gift shopping.

A great way to jazz up an outfit without blowing the bank is to buy a pair of shoes to go with that little black dress you already own. Then add some jewelry, a pretty handbag, and voila – you’re done!

Here are few pairs of fabulous vintage shoes I discovered on the web:

These gorgeous shoes by Charles Jourdan are purple suede, with peep-toes and a rhinestone covered ball on the front. Now you can have your very own disco ball on your dancing feet! Adorable and oh-so-unique.


These metallic gold 70s platforms are absolutely head-turning. They would look fantastic with a black mini dress. They have peep toes, and long straps to wrap around the ankles once or twice.


So perfectly pretty! A great pair of red dancing shoes my grandmother would have worn when she was young and out on the town in Manhattan. These 1940s shoes are red satin, with lattice-work on the instep and a peep toe. They also include snazzy little rhinestone buckles.


Maud Frizon started out as a model before she created her own shoe line in the 1960s. This pair is a great find — black leather with silver piping and huge leather bows at the back. The perfect way to make a grand exit.
