Hey everyone! I took a week off from What I Want Wednesday, mostly because I was trying to get my head right and get back into the swing of things after being on vacation with my family. But, now that I have (mostly) recovered from the excesses of my spring break vacation, I am READY TO WINDOW SHOP! Lord help my wallet!
This week, I found a bunch of things that I would LOVE to own! Check them out!
So, I was on FB last week and saw an ad for these shoes, touting the fact that it finally occurred to someone that “nude” is not one shade fits all – depending on your skin tone, what is traditionally considered nude simply doesn’t work as a truly nude shoe, and doesn’t always create that lengthening, slimming, and sleek look that you are supposed to get when wearing a nude pump. Enter Christian Louboutin, who now offers nude pumps in 7 different hues, ranging from your a pale bone color to a deep chocolate brown hue. The hue here, “Nats”, is the closest nude to my complexion, and man, oh man, do I want these shoes badly! But yeah, $675 isn’t in my budget for one pair of shoes. A girl can dream, though!
I am kicking myself because I had a pair of shoes similar to these in the 90s, that I gave away in the early 00s. Matter of fact, I had several pairs of wedge mules back in the day, and I would totally be on trend now if only I had kept them. That’s the problem with purging your closet – sometimes you get rid of things that you like but have gone out of style, when you KNOW they’ll eventually come back in. They ALWAYS do! I hate that!
I have a pair of similar sandals in nude that I bought maybe 10 years ago from the Victoria’s Secret catalog. I wore the hell out of those shoes during my clubbing days, but since those days ended in 2005, I pretty much only wear the ones I have once or twice a year. But the damage done to them from clubbing is apparent and it is high time to replace these sandals that I love so much! How nice that BR offers these sandals in 6 different hues. These three are my favorites, and since my nephews bought me a BR gift card for my birthday, I will definitely use it to buy a pair or two!
I’ll be the first to adit that I am not really a huge fan of culottes. But I saw these, and instantly liked them. They would definitely be something different for my wardrobe, and I need that! I really think that I could make them work if they are truly cut for a petite (def must try these on BEFORE purchase to make sure they hit right at or below the knee). I think with the right top (MUST be fitted and hit right at waist or be able to be tucked in for a seamless sleek look, maybe a crop top?) these pants will be super cute.
That’s all for this week’s edition. Enjoy the rest of your week!
