Let’s be honest ladies, shoe shopping is half the fun of the holiday season.  Great deals and new models are filling the shelves and it is our duty to capitalize on this opportunity. So here are 5 pairs of shoes that our Footcandy shoe experts recommend for this coming holiday season! Don’t worry, once the holidays are over, these shoes will still be turning heads.


1. Halloween

Halloween brings out some creative costumes and makeup, but who said Halloween can’t be all about your shoes! Designer Rupert Sanderson created a fabulous high heel that can be worn with an array of costumes. From a Witch, to Sleeping Beauty’s Evil Queen, to a Mardi Gras Gal, these heels are perfect for any Halloween costume. Not to mention these heels are absolutely comfortable so they will without a doubt get you through your entire night of walking.

Thanksgiving is not about stuffing your turkey, or rather your face, but spending quality time with family and friends and of course, fashionable shoes. The elegant “Roxy” ankle boot by Bettye Muller of course. This incredible design is made of a rich suede textile and the yellow tone mimics the changing colors of the season. Not only will you be able to wears these glamorous heels during thanksgiving but you will get so much use out of them even after the party is over.

Getting Ruffled

Ruffles are all the rage this season, and I can’t think of a better design concept to throw into your wedding.  Let’s mosey along some beautiful details, shall we?

These ruffled bridesmaids dresses and wedding gowns are perfect because they do not border on “cutesy”—they allow the allure and sophistication of being a bride shine completely through.  As you can see with the last picture, even adding a gorgeous flower to your hair accents the gown instead of detracting from it.  However, if you have a flair for the dramatic…


Speaking of wedding flowers with a little ruffle—this would be a perfect way to incorporate the trend if you do not want to show it in the attire of your bridal party.  Look for extremely lush flowers such as ranunculus, peonies

What about accessories and other areas of the wedding? surely there has to be room for ruffles with shoes, bridal purses and cakes!

Dressing the Man



For the past few weeks, we’ve been featuring some of the best bridal designers and their new looks for the upcoming season.  Far be it from us to leave Mr. Fabuluxe out of all the fun.  Whenever Captain America and I go out or plan trips, it is always so much fun (and sometimes tiring, because trust me, honey, he can outshop me sometimes) to go with him to select his accessories or see him getting fitted.  I completely love how he will pick up something and say “This will bring out the [color] in the [article of clothing]”.  I know.  It’s all types of awesome.

So, I think of him as I write this post—his acute attention to detail and love of sophisticated style that every gentleman should have on his wedding day—no matter what his personality is.  There are so many ways to add some really luxurious details to your man’s look on the big day.  As long as he is not wearing an “extra medium” , I think we’ve pretty much have it easy.

Of course I had to share this beauty by Audemars Piguet, if not for anything else but  admiration purposes alone.  This bezel and bracelet boasts 456 baguette cut diamonds.  Ahem.  That’s 47.45 carats…in case you were wondering.  (I know, I caught the vapors, too!)

Do something special, too—something that will make him think of you as he gets dressed,  For example, even if he rents his tuxedo, have his dress shirt personalized with your monogram or soon to be initials.  You could even pick out (together, of course!) a special cologne for the wedding day.  Something you will find irresistible and alluring on him that he can only  wear on your wedding day.   Of course by now, you know your man’s likes and dislikes, so go through the extra effort to make sure that the groom feels special, confident and gorgeous on your wedding day.

Out on a Wedge

Out on a Wedge
Out on a Wedge – by fabuluxe on

If you didn’t know, wedges are going to be white hot this spring, as are floral prints.  So, if you would, kindly lift up your rock and pay attention 🙂


All the fabulously riche designers like Marc Jacobs (check out the heart shaped wedge) and Prada are kicking off the season with great wedge designs.  Wedge heels have a personality all their own—they can be sporty or flirty to casual or formal.  Need luxe for less?  Try this ruffled set from Target or the Rio sandal by BP. You could find a pair like the ones above to wear with your gown, but a good wedge isn’t meant to be covered up. 

Wedges are fabulous because they distribute pressure throughout the foot, whereas heels concentrate pressure on the ball of the foot.  So this keeps you looking fabulous a lot longer (read about the other benefits of wedges here).  So while you may not choose them for your gown, I see absolutely no reason why you can’t have several pair for such grand occasions as e-shots, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, etc.
