LA stylist for the people (we Angelenos are so lucky) and British Vogue online correspondent Barbra Horowitz extols the virtue of the nude shoe on barbrahorowitz.blogspot.com. I’ve seen this naked shoe in the mags, and have always had a somewhat emotional reaction to them. Eva Mendes rocks them, Victoria Beckham look amazing in them. Legs go on for days, outfits are pulled together perfectly and everything just has a classy, sexy undertone to it. With Valentine’s Day, this shoe option is a nice change from the obvious choices of black or red. Now obviously, “nude” means a lot of things depending upon your skin tone. It could be the palest of ivories to a luscious chocolate. But most often, fashiony-types think of nude as sort of peachy, pink blend with slightly brown undertones. Sometimes designers will even go into a very subtle exotic skin and call that nude. On a naughtier note, you can also look at the clear lucite heels as a nude option. Now that’s a Valentine’s Day secret weapon.
