I love nude, so I do wonder why my wardrobe is so lacking in it!

Savvy Mode SG said...

CC, you are my long lost blog sister. i did white and you did beige today. I was debating about beige or white. We should swap, you should pick out whites and i should do beige at a later date.

Jenny said...

Legallyblondemel said...

Hi there, thanks so much for stopping by my blog & for the comment!

Love those nude sandals (the Torys & the Loub's) in particular; you're so right that a nude heel (in the right shade, of course) perfectly elongates the leg.

Mademoiselle Frou-Frou said...

nude shoes are one of the best investments you can make - they make your legs look so long!

clareassiral said...

i've been dying to go nude, color that is, since seen on the runway but can never find a shade that suits me!

Well, my favorite designer is Alessandro Dell'Acqua, the one who has imposed nude on the fashion scene, even when it wasn't really a trend... so I shall LOOOOVE this !

Chelle said...
