The simple nude shoes

I'm going to be very direct with you, I need a pair of simple nude shoes in my wardrobe ! And for simple I mean a classic stiletto in a shiny patent leather with no platform or any other trendy feature. A plain and simple pair of nude pumps which I will be able to wear with anything, on any occasion and hopefully for a long time.

Following Christian Louboutin's opinion that every woman needs to have a pair of nude shoes, I decided some months ago that I needed to find mine (yes I know, I'm weak !). I wanted mine in patent leather (vernis) because normal leather will get dirty and ugly after the first wear, and I wanted them in the perfect color to match my skin tone (this is though because my skin color changes every time I get a tan...).

I can only advice you to do the same, if of course these suit your style and if you don't already own YOUR perfect pair of nude pumps. I'm with the king of shoes here, the nude pumps are probably one of the most versatile shoes you can have, and as with other classics like the Equipment blouse or the perfect skinny jeans these will be a safe option when you don't know what to wear.

Here are some affordable designs if you want to start looking for yours...






Fromt top left: Sam Edelman pumps (mywardrobe), Michael Michael Kors pumps (netaporter), Nine West pumps (nine west), Calvin Klein pumps (piperlime), Aldo pumps (aldo), Asos shoes (asos)


And some designer styles to dream...




From top left: Alicia pumps (jimmy choo), Gianvito Rossi pumps (matches), Manolo Blahnik pumps (barneys), Rupert Sanderson pumps (mytheresa), Prada pumps (prada), Pigalle pumps (christian louboutin - sold out online)

To be honest, I still don't have my perfect pair but be reassured, my hunt is finally over and if everything goes according to plan I'll soon show you my very own nude shoes. I chose one of the option on this post, any guesses on which one I picked ? (tip: it is not the obvious choice !). The answer will be on the blog very soon, be patient.

How about you, have you found yours ?

Have a great week ! xx

  9. Les Jimmy Choo sont à tomber. Quant aux paires abordables, ce sont les Aldo qui me titillent. C'est vrai que des Stilettos Nude, c'est vraiment très beau quand je regarde les 1eres photos (celle du dessus au milieu sont magnifiques) et on n'y pense jamais. Perso, les vernis, j'aime moins dans cette couleur, même si ça se salit moins (mais les coups sur le vernis clair, ça ne vaut pas mieux, crois moi).

    1. Ah les Jimmy Choo, tu as tout bon, Marie ! Je viens de recevoir les miennes ;) Tu as raison, les coups sur du vernis clair c'est pas plus beau, mais le risque est moindre. enfin, à voir :)) xx

  10. Actually the only pair I really love are, of course, the Louboutins. It's obvious I know, but no one understands the aesthetic of a shoe like Mr Louboutin.

  11. Mes escarpins nude préférés sont les plus simples et les moins sophistiqués. J'ai vu sur instagram que tu avais trouvé ton bonheur? :) Moi aussi il m'en faudrait, mais en noir. Eh oui, c'est la base mais je n'en ai pas encore..
    Des bises, Marie

  12. Oui, j'ai enfin trouvé ! J'ai cherché longtemps, je cherchais la couleur, la hauteur et la forme parfaite, pas facile du tout ! par contre, les escarpins vernis noirs je choisirais les Louboutins, la combinaison noir/rouge est inimitable ! xx

  13. I am on a hunt to find all the best staples that I need to add to my wardrobe for it to be truly functional. I have two pairs of smart black courts (one is from Zara and one is from H&M) and, honestly, I hate them both. Because I rarely wear dressy shoes I've just never updated them. But I think if I had the perfect pair I would up my fabulous levels by 100 gazillion percent because I'd want to wear them all the time... ok... not ALL the time. Not in the bath. That would be weird.

    Anyway. I do love the idea of nude ones but I think I'd opt for black first... I've got it in my head that black heels need to come from Manolo Blahnik though... so it might be a while until that happens. xx

    1. I agree, start with the black heels first, so much more wearable than the nudes... I finally got the nude Jimmy Choos but I'm thinking of returning them :(

    1. The Louboutins are wonderful indeed, if I return my JC it's probably for the pigalle (yes, I'm weak !). xx

    A lot of tіmes it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a amazing job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera. Excellent Blog!
