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!

It’s no secret that I just adore Mrs. Victoria Beckham—and this outfit, in particular, is one of my very favorite ensembles. She’s managed to rock three hot trends at once (the blazer, utilitarian/military, and nude pumps) and not look like a trend victim. And what’s the recipe for her success? Clean lines, solid neutrals. But don’t you worry about that. We’ve done all the legwork for you below. Like most of us, it’s taken Victoria some time to find her style, but those years of experimental blond hair and overindulgence in the Mystic Tan booth were worth it, because the lady is now a masterpiece of her own making. There are some women who fall into the “classy” category, ones that fall into the “sexy” category, and ones that make the “cool” category. Rare is the woman—like VB—who can be described as all three.

Don’t go breakin’ my heart…Kimmy! But she did. Double heartbreak, in fact. First, the *swoon* Sass & Bide Heart Breaker Dress, second, the shoot in Sydney, my old haunt. Sigh. Oh well. I already adore Kim Kardashian, but my love deepened when Kimmy hit Aussie soil and promptly made a beeline for Sass & Bide—she’s been photographed all over Sydney town in various S&B S/S 2010 creations.

Didn’t I tell you that S&B was part of what made my previous life Down Unda worth living? It’s true. One of the great exports of Australia, I say. And isn’t Kim absolutely frockalicious in this number? As they say in Oz, good on ya, mate!

I’m a stalker. I’ll admit it. Luckily for my police record I stalk clothes and not people. It’s still a problem though, as my stalking tends to take up much of my day. Every once in a while, however, it really pays off. Case in point: I’ve loved the Nanette Lepore Lovina Dress ever since it first popped up on Shopbop. I’m a huge fan of the contrast between the brightly colored, lightweight, silk fabric and the more masculine black strap and buckled belt. It feels modern and fresh. Sadly, I don’t have $350 to throw around, especially not on something Nanette’s calling a “beach dress”.

LuLu*s Fashion Director Dress

Sometimes, my friends, stalking really pays off. I happened to be looking through LuLu*s new arrivals when I came across this Fashion Director dress. I implore you to spot a difference between this dress and the Nanette Lepore original. Can’t do it, can you? I may have to run off and marry Lulu*s (sorry in advance to my fiancé) because they just have the best knockoffs. I still can’t believe this dress is only $56, and you know what? I think I like this marigold color better than the original deep pink! A must have for summer.

Make up your own mind by checking out the collection herecj.
