Three days into December and we are giddy and delirious on Advent calendar chocolate, which means we are making some… we are making some ill-advised purchasing decisions. For example: We now have more Christmas jumpers than there are days of Christmas. We have five pairs of novelty, elf toe-shaped festive slippers that will immediately become defunct come January. We bought a Cliff Richard calendar. We are not doing well with our money, this December.
And it’s tempting to do the same in the run-up to party season, buying outfits, shoes and handbags in festive glittery colours that can never feasibly be worn again. Well: Don’t do that. Let’s not do that.
Instead, cast your gaze upwards towards the Sam Edelman collection. Edelman’s shoes embody two of this year’s hottest footwear trends – ferocious-looking spikes and single soles – and can rock up a party outfit as easily as they can be dressed down with a pair of skinny jeans. So, basically: they are an investment that will serve you for longer than the next few weeks.
And they needn’t be much of an investment, either. This week secretsales are offering an exclusive price on the designer footwear – favoured by celebs such as Victoria Justice, Halle Berry and the Olsen Twins – so you can grab a pair (or two, or five) for less.
