Is this the perfect holiday shoe?

The stylish staff at Via Veneto sent me an email saying the store had the perfect holiday shoe. 

As you can see from the photo, it is a spectacular design. I love it too and plan to feature it next week in a Style cover story I'm doing on the popularity of sparkly clothing and accessories. 

But this shoe is so beautiful and special, I thought I would go ahead and mention it in my blog because it deserves to be under someone's Christmas tree and my story doesn't run until Christmas Day. 

The shoe is by designer Giuseppe Zanotti. It's made in Italy and is exclusive to Via Veneto in the U.S. It's upper is velvet and rhinestone; the foot bed and sole are leather. The price is $520. 

Via Veneto is at Phillips Place. 704-556-0710;
