Pretty, Polished, Perfect.: Day 2: Nude Is Better (Most Of The Time)

Day 2: Nude Is Better (Most Of The Time)

I'd apologize for my racy title, but I just couldn't help myself.

For Day 2, I'd like to argue the case of the Nude Shoe vs. the Black Shoe:

While you look at the photograph below, I want you to mentally browse your shoe collection and tell me which shoe you would choose to wear with this fun dress.

Yes this dress was a blast to wear, plus it was my birthday!
Years ago, I would've immediately thought of my black pumps, or maybe some strappy black sandals.  I was really into matchy-matchy (in a bad way!)  Comparing these two photographs, which shoe would you now choose?


Don't get me wrong; both shoes work here.  However, the nude shoe draws your eye upward to the dress (which is what I wanted) while the black shoe draws the eye down to the shoe, which is great - if your shoe is what you want people to see.  Still not convinced?  Try it for yourself; I am a huge believer in taking a photograph - photographs never lie (not without photoshop anyway.)  

Dress: Nordstrom (in black here)
Shoes: Nordstrom Rack (great pair here or an uber-luxe pair here)

The good news?  Nude shoes are everywhere, in varying shades, styles and price point. 

More proof that I'm a nude girl (though I do love my patent leather black pumps!)


I could have worn navy shoes, but looking at the photograph makes me glad I wore nude!

Have I convinced you that nude is (almost always) better?

These are on my wish list. You can really tell the nude is better than the black in those photos. Thanks for showing the comparison.

Great minds think alike! I just gave the same advice in my post today about black versus nude shoes!

Maybe I'll try a nude lol. I've been seeing them all over but have been hesitant to give up the black. The only issue I foresee is how long into the season I can wear them. I'm assuming only a bare leg will work?
