I Found Nudes!

January 1, 2017

Yes, I said nudes! By nudes I mean skin-tone shoes. By skin I mean my chocolate, melanin-popping complexion. When I tell you I have been searching for these beauties all my shoe-loving life, believe that I’m not exaggerating. I can’t count how many times I’ve rummaged through aisle after aisle, chock-full of nudes that were as close to my skin tone as -nothing really. I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent browsing through just about one trillion and a half online sites hoping I’d finally be connected with my shoe-mate. You see,  I have longed for the day when I would don heels that so perfectly match my skin tone, that for a split second, one would be fooled into thinking my feet were magically elevated into a perfect arch by invisible beams. I kid you not, this has been a longstanding styling goal of mine. So imagine my excitement when these beauties finally found me in one of the most unexpected places ever- Instagram! I stumbled upon the ShoeDazzle page, and I kid you not, I was drooling over all the foot candy. I skimmed through almost all 7,457,832 (ok, slight exaggeration) posts- and then, we met. By we I mean my shoe-mate and I. I marched on over to the ShoeDazzle website, all the while crossing my fingers that the shoes were still in stock. Imagine my excitement when I confirmed that they were, and even better- they had my size! I placed my order faster than you could say “don’t you have enough pairs of shoes”, and impatiently waited for my babies to come home.

I skimmed through almost all 7,457,832 (ok, slight exaggeration) posts- and then, we met. By we I mean my shoe-mate and I. I wasn’t going to let anything get in the way of us finally being together! I promptly marched on over to the ShoeDazzle website, all the while crossing my fingers that the chocolate beauties were still in stock. Imagine my excitement when I confirmed that they were, and even better- they had my size!

Fun fact: Shoe Dazzle is a really cool subscription service. I signed up for the VIP Program and my shoe collection was promptly upgraded! Find out more about how Shoe Dazzle works here.

Shipping was prompt, and the packaging was delightful. I actually saved the box. *cough (hoarder)* This is probably as close to my skin tone that I’ll ever get, so I’m pretty excited. I wore them for the first time on New Year’s Eve and loved every minute of it. I’ll share the full outfit in a future post. They fit well; however, these are definitely not dancing shoes. Let’s refrain from breaking hips, ankles, knees and toes, why don’t we?

Fun fact: I kept my accessories simple with a box, short chain strap bag and gold jewelry.

 

 

 

Now let’s get to the moment of sharing, why don’t we.

The bag was thrifted ( I added the gold chain strap to give it a chic look). Below is a link to a similar one, that you can add a chain strap too if you so please. NB. Look at how little the bag costs!

That’s all folks! Now go forth and be dapper! 🙂
