Looking for the perfect nude shoe to go with spring’s blushes and neutrals? Well…we found some options at Nordstrom that just might tickle your fancy…
On the left, the Stuart Weitzman “Nudistsong” in “Naked Suede” lives up to its name! For those with a pinky-peach skin tone, this one disappears…in an excellent way!
On the right, the Pour la Victoire “Elisa” sandal is just the right matte metallic to get their attention without screaming “look at me all bright-n-shiny”. No one wants a screamin’ shoe!
Although these are both a bit on the “tall” side with sky-high heels, they are actually quite comfortable if you dare to go there.
Give ’em a try…cause, of course, it’s #allabouttheshoe
SOS!! All belles on deck!! We are putting out an APB for a replacement for one belle’s all-time favorite shoe!!
Exhibit A…on the right…is one 5-year-old Fendi – the apple of momma’s eye – so stunningly simple and beautiful that both belles purchased a pair while on a joint shopping jaunt way back when – so beloved that one belle had to talk herself out of wearing them every single chance she got (give the other girls a chance, momma!)
Until…5-year-old Fendi met 3-year-old Lily, the Golden Retriever who is extremely lucky she is so doggone cute and sweet…and is therefore still alive. After some hysterics, this belle did the only thing she could think to do. She commenced to shopping, scouring every website her little fingers could hammer out. Alas, no exact replacement found.
Enter Exhibit B…on the left…one vintage Jimmy Choo found at the “vintage/resale” site The Real Real. While seemingly nowhere near a logical replacement for poor little Fendi, Jimmy Choo actually possesses some qualities which just might do the trick (at least in some situations). Barely there and somewhat of a neutral color, Jimmy is just gonna have to do in a pinch!
In the meantime, we belles have contacted Fendi with a plea for help…and would love your input…
We are loving the lush fabrics and colors of some of the items we have our eye on this fall! Intermix has some of our favorites…
1 – Nicholas Deep V Wallpaper dress
2 – Frame Le Velvet blazer
3 – Erickson Beamon Sage Multi Circle earrings
4 – Elizabeth Cole Multi Floral earrings
5 – Kenneth Jay Lane crystal cocktail ring
6 – Jimmy Choo Lacey 100 velvet pumps

We’ve been helping a dear belle-friend get her closet in order after three moves and three years of being “unsettled” (poor dear). In the process, we realized that every belle could be reminded of what we deem to be the shoe collection top ten. In other words…the ten pairs of shoes that we couldn’t live without.
If you have ’em all, you’re a savvy belle (or a shoe hoarder…takes one to know one…just sayin’). If you don’t have ’em, we’ve given you some options so that you can fill those holes, pronto!
We started at our favorite local shoe haunt, Muse Shoe Studio, with some picks to fill every belle’s needs…and we’ve added some online options for our far-flung friends…
And this Christian Louboutin “simple pump” is a high-end no-brainier (its price-per-wear will make it a bargain!) Find it HERE.
And the Louboutin “simple pump” also comes in nude…just sayin’ ( at Nordstrom)
Above…this metallic, strappy Pelle Moda from Muse adds a bit of bling to your festivities.
And the Jimmy Choo “Lang” (find it HERE) is another great (albeit more pricey) choice
4. A fun print
and we have been long-time fans of the calf-hair, animal-print “Elsie” pump from J Crew. Pretty indispensable in our book!
5. A ballet flat
The quintessential staple for any stylish belle, this Vanelli (above) from Muse combines a bit of brown with the basic black for extra versatility .
We are quite partial to this little beauty as well….may even have to get it in all three colors!! Order here now for 20%off!!
Muse has an incredible selection in this category! Wish we could include them all! This basic bootie combines that of-the-moment shape with a comfortable heel-height and classic black. You can also find it here.
8. A sleek, all-weather street boot
We’ve sung the praises of Aquatalia boots before, belles…and we will do it again and again! This “Gael” all-weather riding boot will be a staple till the cows come home! (We’ve been known to wear ours every…single…day while on trips to NYC, Paris, Chicago…). Absolute perfection!
For walking the pups in style…or just surviving in this rain-soaked home we used to call the “sunny (hot, muggy) South”, this Sam Edelman bootie from Muse will keep you dry and happy. You can also order it here.
And the “Original Tall” Hunter boot ( find it here) is a classic…and perfect for entertaining yourself by jumping in puddles (we have experience 😉
10. A neutral sandal
Tory Burch offers great options each year. The Kieran is a favorite of the belles.
And this Gucci “Marmont” stunner…of a sandal will ring belles for years to come
Inventory time, belles!! Let us know if you have any additions. Wouldn’t want to miss out!
So…if you haven’t guessed…we love a good shoe. You might say we both border on obsession, like that’s a bad thing or somethin’! Anyway, we ran across one the other day that really rang our belle!!
Ya know how you find a great-looking shoe, but you are in need of bronze and it only comes in black? Or you need basic black but it only comes in snakeskin? Well…this little stunner comes in all of the above!!
May we introduce…The Via Spiga Leesa sandal available at Nordstrom.
Take a gander…
(and additional options are black satin, black snake, cobalt snake, merlot, nude…we grow giddy from excitement!!)
With a classic heel…not too high, not too low…and a price that isn’t outrageous ($195), this one (or two or three) should be ringin’ your belle as well!!
Get clickin’…the UPS man is just lookin’ for something to do!
