The Eternal Hunt For Nude Shoes!

Earlier this year I found myself on a quest for nude shoes. It didn’t matter what style of shoe as long as they were nude and had a heel of some sort. My obsession started off in Atlsnta where I hounded the managers of the shoe departments at Saks and Neiman Marcus. ALL nude shoes were sold out by March. Every Louboutin, every Gianvito Rossi, even Nine West SOLD OUT!!! I moved on to my people at Jeffrey’s. They are usually on the ball but nothing there either.
It turns out Mr. Louboutin was only making a certain number of nudes and distributing them evenly amongst all his distributors in the States šŸ˜¦

Now being a size 41 I knew this was going to be a challenge but I’m not one to give up especially when it comes to shoes Hahahah ( you would think I’m trying to get a degree). I proceeded to call all my connection s in London and in Paris still nothing.

I had accepted DEFEAT, I would have to wait til next fall to snag some new nudes.

Fast forward to August. I’m in Knightsbridge shopping. The usual places, Harvey Nichols & Harrods, then I remember there are a few good consignment shops around here. Being in the business of consignment don’t know why I didn’t think about checking them out before!!!

As I head over to Cheval Place I feel happy, lol, excited. I zoom towards the dressing room and what do I see?! A whole wall of nude shoes !!!! I peruse through them I find 3 in size 41.

There they were these amazing two strap Prada heels. Simple. Exactly what I was looking for. Even better they were BRAND NEW and only Ā£150 šŸ™‚

I felt accomplished. I won! Hahahah! I waited a long time and I got what I wanted.

CONSIGNMENT SAVED THE DAY!

P.s. Turns out my Prada heels happen to be the same ones that Kim Kardashian bought on Ebay.

DIY Like Kim

Fall is the perfect time of the year for DIY fashion, luckily for those of you who live in nice tropical weather you get to do this all year round! We love the way Kim Kardashian took a Wolford top and cut it to crop it and paired it with a Wolford dress worn as a skirt. She cozied the outfit up a little bit with a Margiela dress as a sweater-jacket.

What we really love though are her accessories. Her Prada heels are to die for and REALLY hard to find these days so its awesome that she found them on EBay just like everyone else! Her Hermes purse and Saint Laurent sunglasses are classic pieces. They help tone down the crop top look. Overall its a win!

Hike Day :: Nike Free Tr 4 Sneakers :: Tribble Mill Parkway

Even though Fall is barely here, the change in weather has hit me hard! The 20 degree drop in temperature left me with a terrible cold which I decided to sweat out with a hike around the beautiful Tribble Mill Park yesterday. It also gave me an opportunity to try out my new Nike Free Tr 4 sneakers.

I wanted a light sneaker that still gives enough support to run, lift weights, jog, walk, hike, shop – in other words my go to active shoe and the Nike Free Tr 4 is it. These are by far the most comfortable sneakers I have ever worn. The best part is the built in ventilation. Your feet never get hot!

“The Nike Free TR 4 Women’s Training Shoe features a flexible midsole and an all-new lightweight mesh upper engineered to support training-specific multidirectional movements, making it perfect for functional training, cardio, core work and other gym workouts” – NIKE

I love them, they are comfortable, well ventilated and have great support. Better than all of this is the price point at $100! I will certainly be getting them in a few more colors!
