Footwear Fit for a Princess

Glitter Glitz & Glam

What do Snow White, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty all have in common? If you thought they were all princesses you would only be half correct. Though I can’t confirm with 100 percent accuracy on Sleeping Beauty’s status, for argument’s sake, and purposes of today’s discussion, let’s agree they all wore heels when they were dressed in their princessy finest.

The gold sequined bodice is sort of a brocade-like design and the flared skirt fabric looks like satin.
Princess for a Day

So the other day during an email exchange with one of my blogger friends, Khaya Ronkainen, we talked briefly about wearing flats with evening attire. While we know that every single woman on the planet does not wear heels, generally speaking, for many fancy soirees we typically see women in heels. So today I wanted to share a few cocktail party/formal combinations featuring pointy toe flats.

This dress is a form-fitting bodycon dress with a boat neckline.
Sizzling Sequins

Our first look that I affectionately refer to as Princess for a Day consists of velvet-looking navy flats with wraparound ankle laces. A regal navy skater dress with gold sequined bodice works nicely with the shoes and gold glittered minaudiere (clutch).

The fabric from the form fitting v-neck bodice and softly draping skirt of this dress is gathered together to create a swirl-like effect at the waist. The skirt also has a slit in front giving it a faux wrap around look.
Silver Red

Black suede flats adorned with gold-embroidered butterfly wings that covers the entire toe (half butterfly on each shoe, when placed together form a complete butterfly) compliment a black long-sleeved, sequined cocktail dress. The clutch is black suede with a tassel zipper, and gold accents including.

This dress is a shift with a crew neckline. The lace along the hemline is scalloped.
Lace Champagne

Silver holographic glittered d’Orsays detailed with a tiny bow atop a mini t-strap are stunning with an elegant long red sleeveless gown. A small pewter hard case clutch encased in silver cutout shell finishes this ensemble.

The rhinestone/jewel embellished blush colored metallic flats with, thin ankle strap, lace champagne cocktail dress and camel colored snake-embossed box clutch make for a pretty neutral combination.

All of these examples demonstrate how you can were flats for dressy occasions. Who says you can’t be stylish, elegant or sexy when wearing ballet flats? With a myriad of colors, styles, textures, buckles, straps, laces, and embellishments from which to choose you can be dressed to the nines.

So there you have it!! With the holidays just around the corner now you have some pretty foot-friendly options that will ensure your comfort without compromising your sophistication.

  1. Thank you for this post. I only wear flats 🙂

    1. You’re very welcome Jazmin. Heels always get a lot of attention but not everyone wears heels and there are so many very pretty ones from which to choose.

  2. Oh sure, Stephanae. But what about us guys! 😀

    1. Hahaha I was gonna say something like “guys shoes are uninspiring” then I remembered my ex-husband had almost as many pairs of shoes as I did. It was kinda creepy but he was a great guy who had a great sense of style.

      1. That’s what I need a great sense of style.

  3. Oh wow Steph, you are efficient! My outfit is right there at image number 2. The dress, the clutch, and for shoes I opted for studded suede and patent leather bronx. I feel confident and comfortable already for tomorrow’s evening event.

    And since I love all these outfits you presented here, I’m now tempted to accept every invitation for a night out so I can try them all:). Thank you for such a beautiful post, and have lovely weekend.

    1. Oooo studded suede sounds nice! And Marilyn Monroe was correct in how we can conquer the world in the right pair of shoes. I hope you had a nice time at the event.

      1. Yes thanks Steph, the event was a blast!

      2. That’s great to hear Khaya.

  4. Thanks for those of us who don’t like heels.

    1. You’re welcome Katelon. 😀
