Nude-colored shoes

I love Kate Middleton.  Or rather I love (in ascending order):

  • her hair
  • her smile
  • her fashion

One thing that I’ve picked up from Kate is the wearing of nude-colored shoes.  How many times have you seen her wear the L.K. Bennett Sledge pump?

Customarily, you’d pair a dark-colored dress with black shoes, but nude-colored shoes elongate the leg.  That’s a good tip that I picked up from Kate (or rather, her stylist); however, I wouldn’t wear a heel as high (4″ with 1/2″ platform) as the L.K. Bennett Sledge Pump.

PS You may find the L.K. Bennett Sledge Pump ($345) at Nordstrom.

Napoleon Perdis is going upscale!

In a surprising move, Napoleon Perdis is going upscale with his self-named line (not to be confused with his NP Set line that is exclusive to Target).  The Napoleon Perdis line is carried by Ulta and Dillard’s.  More recently, Nordstrom has picked up his line.

Now comes news that Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus have picked up his line.   His first limited edition collection exclusive for BG/NM (really, one company) is the Swan Lake collection, inspired by his collaboration with the Australian Ballet:

  • two full size brushes

The Swan Lake LE collection debuts this month and retails for $80.oo through bergdorfgoodman.com and neimanmarcus.com.
