Occasionally I’ll take a look in my shoe closet (only occasionally, it’s a scary place) and realize that while I have a lot of trendy shoes, I lack some fundamental classics. I’ve been out of high-school for 11 years (moving right along) but funnily enough this morning I woke up thinking about proms and what I would wear today if given the opportunity. Well I haven’t figured out the dress part just yet, but I think these Badgley Mischka Harrow Slingback Satin Sandals would do quite nicely on my feet. A classic, simple yet beautiful shoe with a high heel but not too high that you can’t dance in them. Perfection if you ask me. Now at $169 (on sale now for $132) these are on the lower end of the price scale (considering we feature many pairs that retail for upwards of $500), but for all our high-schoolers that’s probably still a little steep.

rsvp “Ellie” Satin Sandals

OK, let’s be honest here. Even if you CAN afford the Badgley Mischkas, why would you even consider them when these rsvp “Ellie” sandals look virtually identical? The heel looks maybe a smidge lower but otherwise it is the same shoe, at less than half the price. Even more good news? They also come in navy, dark silver, ivory and white satin, which means there’s a pair to match any dress you might have. I’m thinking the white satin would make a fierce bridal pump too!

Nude Shoes Under $100!

by Irina on March 30, 2010

We’ve been getting quite a few requests lately to do a post on affordable nude shoes. It’s a trend I have first seen emerging on the red carpet about 2 years ago. Eva Longoria seems to be pioneering this trend as she owns a multitude of nude heels. From simple Louboutin pumps to luscious champagne colored satin evening sandals we can regularly see Eva sporting nude footwear on and off the red carpet. And who can blame her? It’s probably as flattering as a shoe trend can be because nude shoes naturally elongate your legs and can be worn with almost any outfit either dressed up or down.

We’ve made it our mission to find the best nude heels for under $100 and I’m really satisfied with how many fabulous nude shoes are currently on the market for a budget-friendly price. Now that spring has finally come and temperatures are rising, it’s time to lighten up our wardrobes… starting with our shoes! Enjoy our finds and let us know whether or not you like this trend or if you already have a pair of nude heels in your closet.

Nothing says “I’m dressed up” like a ladylike satin stiletto—and these Jimmy Choo Satin Peep-toe Pumps say that and then some. They are dressy, yes, but in a restrained, Upper East Side way. Can’t you just see Lily of Gossip Girl fluttering around a charity event in them?

Martinez Valero “Orli” Satin Peep-toe Pumps

While satin and jewels are de rigeur in the world of formal wear, thankfully, an $895 price tag is not. Next time you have a semi-formal or formal event, consider the “Orli” Satin Peep-toe Pump by Martinez Valero. Like those enviable Choos, the gleaming “Orli” exudes elegance, complete with that subtle bow-and-buckle detail. If we could get the fictional Lily to sport this pair as well, she’d have $735.05 left over to give to her pet charity. Available in black, blue, red, bronze, ivory & silver satin.

Everyone who follows this blog for a while should be aware of my everlasting love for everything Alexander McQueen – especially my love affair with his shoes. His creations are always so stunning and unique. Take these gorgeous white satin peep-toes for example. If I was to marry anytime soon, I would definitely choose these as my bridal shoes and feel like Cinderella in a fairy tale.

RSVP “Lovely” Satin Peep-toe Pumps

If the real McQueen crystal heels don’t fit within your wedding/shopping budget, go for these budget-friendly satin peep-toes by RSVP instead. They’re called “Lovely” and that’s exactly what they are. Absolutely lovely! I’m so, so, so in love. Now I know they do miss the front crystals, but everything else looks almost identical. And they come in an array of adorable colors such as baby blue and fuchsia, too. I cannot make up my mind which one is my favorite!
