“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” It’s debatable whether or not Marilyn Monroe had ever actually said these words, but that doesn’t make them any less true. While a fabulous pair of shoes won’t give you super powers, or even help you ace the presentation you’re about to give at your next meeting, the confidence boost that they give instead is undeniable. One great way to round out your collection is with a brilliant pair of metallic heels, appropriate for not only the Christmas party but the boardroom as well. Who knows, if your presentation tanks but your boss is too enchanted by your stilettos to notice, they just might help you conquer the world after all.
