Jkael by Jessica Bennett

The Jkael by Jessica Bennett in Bronze and Pewter

Arriving just in time for holiday parties and the glitter of New Year's Eve, the Jkael by Jessica Bennett steps regally into our pick for Shoe of the Week. This shoe is all confidence and glamour, a perfect accompaniment to holiday cheer. Plus, we admire the cheek of wearing strappy sandals in the blustery cold of end-of-the-year festivities.

We also admire their seductive metallic shine. Spaghetti-thin straps arch up just forward of the arch and tie off above the midfoot while a thin strap slings around the ankle. The spangled leather footbed is topped with cushioned, patent inset with a mirror-like shine. The same brilliance extends to the 3.5-inch heel -- an oblong and elegant stiletto flashing as you walk.

The pewter shoe has shimmering silver undertones while the bronze is closer to a smoldering Indian gold. Both are obvious choices for finishing off a flirty party dress as well as something longer and more formal. Pair up with equally sparkling, dangling gemstone earrings like the Kendra Scott we reviewed or a statement necklace with fist-sized cabochons. The metallic richness of this shoe speaks volumes. Try a number of solid legging colors and lend some youthful attitude without sacrificing the opulence.
Whatever you choose the Jkael will lend you a glamour well beyond its $100 pricetag.
