Holiday Open Thread

Nina Ulexa SandalsAs you may have guessed from our “Bargain Tuesday” post today, we’re taking off for the holidays (and hope you are as well). We will be back to post about any good sales we hear — but until then, enjoy the holiday thread and whatever holiday plans you have.

We thought the “non-office clothes” recommendation went over well with last weekend’s open thread, so we’re going to continue it — these shoes aren’t quite casual, but are great for holiday parties. We like the ruffle on top, and the lack of sequins — nothing to snag a long skirt or dress, or a fancy-ish pair of trousers.  We’d wear them with bare legs (and a driver and/or pair of snow boots standing by) but we think they could also work with the right pair of tights.  Best of all, they’re part of the many shoes that Piperlime has on sale at the moment (lots are 40% off, even though these are not) — these were $89, now $69, available in sizes 5.5-10 in black and gold.  Nina Ulexa Sandals
