Fresh Picks: Party-Worthy Heels

We like to think of party heels like that fun, vibrant girlfriend who’s always the lively center of attention--the life of the party.

When it comes to getting dolled up for those holiday soirées, even the coolest outfit would be amiss without the perfect pair of party-ready shoes!

So without further ado, here are some of our recent favorites in the party heels department!

Couture Meet and Greet Gwen Stefani!

Last weekend our Couture team was invited to see No Doubt’s kick-off performance of their reunion tour, at the 12th annual Tiger Jam Charity Event, at The Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.

Since our Couture team is in charge of stocking our site with Gwen Stefani’s line, L.A.M.B. , they were given free tickets from the President of Schifter and Partners along with the chance to meet Gwen herself! Even though Gwen says “I’m just a girl” she’s a pop fashion icon to most and of course if there’s one team here at Zappos who’s all about fashion, it’s our Couture team.

WHAT'S NEW - L.A.M.B.

First it was the fashionable Le Sport Sac bag collaboration, then Ms. Stefani branched out on her own doing a clothing line, and just when our fashionable little lives couldn’t get any better, out comes the shoes and timepieces. Well ladies, if that were not enough to quicken your pulse and exhaust your credit limit, Couture.Zappos is now happily carrying the new L.A.M.B. handbag line. The Couture team is loving the hypnotic patterned Signature Carlisle Clutch and the Vinyl Music Small Shoulder Clutch. But don’t just take our word for it, check out the handbags for your fashionable self.

THE MAGNIFICENT TARTAN

From its humble beginnings on Scottish battlefields in the 1500s, to designer runways for Fall 2008, tartan and tartan-esque plaid have made a huge fashionable resurgence. Couture is loving the definitive plaid on lace up ankle boots , on stylish flats, on chic tunics, wrap braelets and shoulder totes. Our pics (from upper left): Disney Couture Pirates Wrap Bracelet with Swords, Brixton Red Plaid Hooligan Hat, Jean Paul Gaultier Tuile Plaid Tank, J. Renee Scottie Plaid Skimmer, L.A.M.B. Rose Suede and Plaid ankle boot, and Roxy Crimson Make It Happen Shoulder Tote.

CRAVINGS - PLATFORMS

How excited is Couture that there is such a plethora of choices of platforms this season? Very! We are mad for the ultra high heel peep toe variations, lusting after the stiletto versions (needle heel or not), submitting to our decadent yearnings with the hidden platform bootie choices and simply smitten with the chunky heel styles. And why not, platforms look great with skinny jeans and loose tees, edgy with leggings and belted boyfriend sweaters, or sexy with dresses and bolero leather jacket. Our picks: CoSTUME NATIONAL Peep Toe Platform, Be & D Evangelista Multi Strap Platform, Moschino Two-toned Wing Tip Toe Hidden Platform, CoSTUME NATIONAL Pointy Toe Platform Stiletto, DSquared2 Piercing Pump with Crystal Detailing and Silver Heel, Sergio Rossi Peep Toe Multi Strap Patent Leather Platform Bootie, L.A.M.B. Cap Toe Button Detail Back Zip Hidden Platform Bootie.
