As a shoe lover I naturally love shoes in all shapes and sizes, but to be honest I was never quite a fan of gold shoes. Most of them I find too flashy and especially cheap gold shoes often look extremely cheesy to me. So while I might not be too keen on gold shoes per sé, I do love me some gold accents just like the ones you see on these grey pumps by Angeles. The grey faux suede makes these pumps work attire appropriate whereas the gold bow & heel makes them dressy enough for a cocktail party or a girls’ night out. You like?

Poor Jessica Simpson has gotten a ton of flack lately for her weight, but personally I think her body looks awesome – it’s her fashion sense that needed some work. Fortunately, she seems to have gotten into the groove of things again (and/or has a new stylist) and has been looking every inch the beauty that she is. The paparazzi caught Miss Simpson leaving the Ritz Carlton a few days ago, wearing a Stella McCartney Floral Print dress that (and I’m pretty certain about this) needs to end up in my closet for all to be right with the world. Jess paired the dress with a motorcycle jacket, a luxurious-looking, white Derek Lam bag and grey t-straps. Now let me see: I already have grey t-straps, a moto jacket and a white bag in my closet; I’m just missing the dress. Jessica, call me if you want to do a little swap-a-roo. I have a Forever 21 dress with your name on it!

I wish I wouldn’t love high heels as much as I do. Because let’s be honest, it’s a one-sided love. If you’ve ever danced the night away in a pair of 5″ stilettos you KNOW what I am talking about. At some point your feet will pinch so much you’d do anything to get them off your feet. I regularly go home barefeet after a night of clubbing in high heels. Afterwards, I always want to swear off high heels and switch to cute ballet flats. But it never works! I just can’t dress up in a sleek sexy dress and wear flats with it. Can’t stand the way it loooks. Long story short; I will continue loving sky-high heels even if they pain the hell out of me!

And these dangerously high platform pumps by Harajuku Lovers I LOVE! They do have Charlotte Olympia written all over them – a shoe designer who mastered the art of designing the perfect platform heel. And I have a slight feeling I know who’s the mastermind behind these ones (Celine, I’m talking to you! 😉). They come in 3 beautiful colors (black, brown and blue) and I just love the shortened duo-tone platform. Yes, the 1 3/4″ platform will help make the 5 1/4″ heel more manageable, but don’t be fooled though, your feet will still hate your for wearing these. You know what? My feet can shut up!

Jessica Alba is a beautiful woman, but I’m not always the biggest fan of her outfit choices. To be fair she has a new daughter and I’m sure getting dressed in fancy clothes isn’t always her first priority. I’m about to eat my words, though, because what Jessica wore to the Global Campaign for Education press conference, really took my breath away. It is classy and grown-up without looking in the least bit matronly (there is a little peek-a-boo cleavage going on, after all) and the blush and nude tones are right on trend. I also love that she wore simple pearl studs and left all the other jewelry at home. This would be a great understated look for the office.

Jessica Alba Pretty Pastel Pink Look 4 Less

My number one favorite thing in our Jessica Alba Look 4 Less pieces, are those patent leather nude pumps. How divine are they? The ASOS suede bag looks smooshy and rich and I’m pretty sure that every woman should invest in a men’s style gold watch. In this case, it keeps the outfit from looking too feminine. The entire look will run you about $400, but these are all classic pieces that you will rework and re-wear – trust us!

After our post featuring Nude Shoes for Under $100 we received a request from Ann who wanted us to find nude pumps for dark skinned women. I know our first post didn’t cater to every skin tone under the sun and since there are a lot of not-so-pale girls à la Dita von Teese, here’s our take on great nude shoes (most are under $100) for all our sunkissed & naturally dark skinned readers. Enjoy!
