In the Nude


A few years ago, I shared one of my best beauty secrets with my conservatory classmates: wear nude shoes with shorter dresses for legs that look a mile long. This bride obviously agreed, and these Stuart Weitzman peep toes are nothing short of scrumptious!

Any shoe secrets you'd care to share?

  1. These shoes are gorgeous and that is a great tip, Lena. I would also say that t-straps can be elongating in the right height and color, so take advantage of that trend. Hmmm. I love shoes. xo

  6. Oh. I never thought of that. Fun trick! I have no shoe secrets. I'm shoe trick-less. It's sad.

  8. My nude slingbacks are my FAVORITE shoes ever. They just make me look polished without looking like I was trying too hard. And the fact that the shoes are nude actually makes them stand out even more.

  18. That's a pretty awesome tip, Lena! Another tip for long-looking legs? Black tights paired with black heels. I like to use this trick in the winter because I like my legs to be covered!

  25. You are so right!!! I finally found one to match my skin tone and let me just say this I LOVE THEM!!! I need one for when I get no sun at all and for the times when I do! Briown sugar is really pale before it gets burned...still sweet just awfully pale!

  26. Agree - nude shoes visually elongate legs. Ankle straps shorten and make you legs look stocky ;) - that's my tips.

    Have a great day, darling!
