Of all the places around town that really do it up for the holidays, Trashy Lingerie, that famous, La Cienega-located negligee emporium, sends us into fits of delight. We love the creative, adults-only spins on classic looks, like the sexy Santa tanks, the candy-colored bras, the plaid-beribboned teddies, the stiletto-heeled elf boots. Stiletto-heeled elf boots? Indeed. Complete with tiny bell on the end of the curled toe, these sassy shoes fill us with a holiday joy that few things do. Walking in a winter wonderland never looked so lusty.
Called Joy Boots, in fact, the foxy footwear comes in Christmas-y hues -- red, green, and black -- and upper leg trim that suggests the kind of collar one might find on a North Pole denizen. But they don't wear sky-high heels around the North Pole -- the snow drifts are too deep, we're assuming -- and so these babies are made for strutting around in sunnier climes.
Keep in mind that the heel is over three inches -- you gotta know how to work those things, or at least be able to stand without wobbling -- and that the bell on the toe will announce your arrival. We're guessing everyone on the naughty list is asking for 'em.
