Early Bird Gift Ideas – Plan Ahead This Holiday Season!

So, you’ve made your list, you’ve checked it twice, and if you’re anything like me you’ve had to find (emphasis on find) and then combine the twelve or so lists that you’ve been attempting to keep all year long so that you can oh so wittily surprise someone with something they mentioned they needed back in March. Now that you’ve got your list together, you actually have to move from the planning phase to the execution phase.  And yes, you should get the things on said list prior to the week before Christmas.

I know Hurricane Sandy is really messing with the execution phase of this plan, but never fear, Shoe Metro is here.  We’ve put together some of our most popular items so we can suggest some Early Bird Gift Ideas just for you. Perhaps you’ll find the motivation you need to get a head start on the holiday season. You know what they say…

Weird Shoe Wednesdays: Nina Ricci ‘Turtle Dove’ Booties & Holiday Sweater Converse

I realize that Christmas was last week and Hanukkah ended the week before but Kwanzaa is still upon us so dang it, I’m still keeping my holiday spirit, thank you very much!

This week for Weird Shoe Wednesday, we have two pairs of holiday-themed shoes. The first choice (the good-looking choice) is a pair of shearling ankle boots from Nina Ricci (above) featuring a beautiful perspex heel that shimmer like a frozen winter icicle. If you look more closely, the heel is actually sculpted into the shape of two turtle doves in flight. They are very elegant and just a little bit …… poetic, I think. What better way to walk into the new year (and new decade!) than with hope lifting your feet?

The second choice is this pair of knitted Converse hi-top Chucks that remind me of those ugly holiday sweaters that my mom or aunt or someone or other would make me wear when I was small. The wool uppers are hand-knit and then hand-stitched onto the canvas uppers of the All-Star Chucks. Courtesy of PrettySneaky at Check them out after the jump.

Moschino ‘Poinsettia’ Heels for the Holidays

Hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was pretty hectic as I scrambled to wrap gifts with all the grace of a rhinoceros. But isn’t that what the holidays are all about: scrambling around like a fool for the sake of your loved ones?

Anyway, feast your holiday eyes on these heels from Moschino. It’s got a real cute two-tiered petal-shaped ankle strap that drapes over your foot a little bit. It definitely reminded me of beautiful red poinsettias, which should be out in full force for the holiday season. The heels also have a back zipper closure, leather lining, and smooth leather outsole. If you can find a pair, they’d be great for all your holiday parties.
