Better Sooner than Later, Gator!
On the first day of Christmas, I hope the Shoe Fairy brings to me:
A pair of Nicholas Kirkwood Egypt platforms in purple alligator. They'll be great with an LBD and black opaque tights at a holiday party (or five!) They're available at Gregory's Dallas for (cough) $6,885, so Shoe Fairy, feel free to call Santa and any other reinforcements you need. There's nothing wrong with chipping in for a big gift instead of giving a bunch of smaller ones.
