New Year's resolutions aren't really our thing, but that doesn't mean we intend to kick off 2010 on the wrong foot.

Which is why we're mopping up puddles of drool after getting a sneak peek at the hot new footwear designed by none other than Nicole Richie.

The fashionable starlet, whose highly anticipated ready-to-wear collection Winter Kate makes its debut early next year, has added footwear to her popular House of Harlow 1960 accessories line, according to a press release from My-Wardrobe.com, which will exclusively sell the shoe line online in the UK come January.

And judging by the these photos, it's going to be one very happy New Year.

Strong embellishments and tribal details -- reminiscent of House of Harlow 1960 jewelry -- guarantee covetable statement shoes in the form of heels, flat sandals and moccasin boots.

Highlights from the footwear offerings include peep-toe booties with trendy geometric cutouts and tribal-looking patterns, in addition to sky-high peep-toe platforms with a contrasting whipstitched diamond print running down the back of the heel.

Sounds good to us!

What doesn't sound so good? Having to wait 'til next year to slip these babies on our feet.
