You’ve got your dress, you’ve got your sparkly accessories, and you’ve even bought the hostess’ gift, but no party look can be complete without the perfect pair of shoes. Before you reach for your highest pair of heels, remember that nothing is worse than being the girl sitting in the corner, massaging her feet in pain because she rolled her ankle after dancing for only two songs. You need a pair of shoes that are party-perfect but that also allow you to dance without pain, and the risk of broken bones.
