Friday Je T'aime... Nude Shoes

Valentino, a favorite of mine -- picked up last spring.

"Obviously I made a mistake wearing my Louboutin shoes, I should've worn flats, but flats to me is.... like a disease." -the exquisite Lisa Vanderpump

Since I am tiny, 5'2", I am always in heels. To me they are more comfortable because my body is so used to them. It could also have to do with the fact that I grew up dancing and was always uncomfortable during shows; dancing in pointe
shoes, tap shoes, charter shoes .... so my feet are just used to being uncomfortable - to a certain extent. Needless to say, I will make a podiatrist very rich one day!

Last weekend, I got my weekly dosage of thought-provoking literature New York Times Style section case of Blahnik v. Louboutin. Heavy reading. Although I adore the glamour of Louboutin, my arches are too high to wear them and I do find it a bit ridiculous that someone can thinks he can trademark a primary color... but back to my point...

Still, I don't care if you are 5'2" or 6'0" everyone always looks better in heels- in my opinion but I think it's a fact... no? In particular, the nude and beige shoe trends elongates the legs and make everyone look taller overall.

The nude and beige shoe trend has been going on for three winter seasons... I know this because I have the shoes to prove it!

One pair of nude wedges I wore so much this summer that I had to resort to crazy gluing them back together at Backstage Hardware outside of the Design Center. Arts and Crafts!
I love my new Jimmy Choo Aimee Pumps-great for client meetings and every day use.
Valentino, get compliments on these every time I wear them. They are so fab!

So fabulous that they need to be shown from multiple angles.

Back to the shoe, a bit more reasonable Stuart Weitzman Platswoon Pump
A little snake with hints of nude... loving Manolo Blanik Gatodo.
Christian Louboutin Aranea ...Would love to be caught in these webs!

Classic Jimmy Choo Alicia... sans platform.

Who doesn't need a little beige suede pump with glitter trim? I've got my eye on you glitter Choo!

Manolo Blahnik Campy- had to throw in a Mary Jane.
Beige and black Lanvin Embroidered Flower Pump! What a dreamy shoe!
