My Favorite Thing (From Goodwill): Classic Heel with Gold Accents

Dear readers, when I recently brought out my fall shoe collection from storage, I noticed that I was short on black heels. I’ve had one pair that has been my go-to shoes for years. I’ve worn them so much that I have almost loved to death; the heel is wearing down, the material is becoming dull and they’re just simply falling a part. In order to keep it alive, I realized I need multiple pairs of black heels of all shapes and sizes.

A black heel is a such a staple, it’s crazy to me to think that I only had one pair….until now!

In late September, I found a pair of shoes that are going to keep me looking sassy and stylish for seasons to come.


I found these gorgeous black and gold ornamented Shoedazzle heels at one of our Northern Virginia locations for around $7! I knew I had to have these when I noticed them from across the store, cheering at me to purchase them.

I typically have difficulty finding shoes in my small size, so there was absolutely no question whether or not to bring these home. I put them in my basket immediately!

What I love most about this pair of beauties is the fact that it’s  a classic black shoe with a funky fresh twist. I’m a sucker for anything black and gold, making this pair of shoes an instant match made in heaven. The cage detailing capping the tow of the heels is quite lovely, and transforms this shoe from a classic to a classically funky piece of art. The gold on the toe of the heel isn’t just the only gold feature, the heel is also ornamented with a mirror gold finish. Va va voom, baby!

I’m not quite sure I’d ever wear these to work, for the gold is a bit too fancy and glam. But they are certainly appropriate for an evening work event! Because the heel isn’t too high or sexy, these are extremely comfortable and stylish for an evening out networking or socializing with coworkers.

For other evening events, I can see these shoes walking for miles. Dance nights, cocktail events, dinner dates…I’m picturing these shoes being worn anywhere with a level of fanciness or celebration.

During any evening outing, a dress, skirt, or pair of fitted or skinny pants will look fabulous.

I love to wear all black, so I’m imagining wearing these killer heels with an all black outfit. It would look incredibly slick, and allow the gold ornamentation and any accessories to make a statement. Also, cute black dresses, skirts, and pants are affordable and easy to find, making them perfect pairings with these shoes.

In contrast,  I’m thinking florals, patterns,  and stripes would look stellar with these shoes. Honestly, because these are black,  virtually any type of garment would work!

However, be careful with accessories. Because the shoes have gold, make sure to be a tad conservative with your amount of gold metals. You don’t want  too look like a walking jewelry store and blind anyone! ;o

Now that fall is here’s fashionistas, it’s time to whip out your close toed heels to keep those toes warm during cooler days and nights.

How would you style my new pair of black and gold kicks?
