The piece: Jimmy Choo Lance Metallic Leather Sandals
The investment: $775
Why it's worth it: When they say "put your dancing shoes on" we suspect they're talking about these metallic Jimmy Choos. Even if you're not really in the party mood, we bet putting these on would change your tune. You can't help but feel sexier, cooler, and walk a little taller in these four-inch heels. Yes, they're a little more pricey than your average party shoes, but that's because they're not average at all — and they're not just for party season either. While they'll complement your dresses with a pitch-perfect dose of shine all holiday-season long, they'll also go with your jeans, skirts, dresses, and even shorts every other day of the year, too — the glam counterpart to your boyfriend denim (how very Carrie Bradshaw of you!). So while finding the perfect New Year's Eve heel might be your only priority now, rest assured, there will be no buyer's remorse when you're wearing these long after we ring in 2013.
