So a dear friend’s daughter of mine is headed to prom and in need of the perfect shoe to match her lovely black mermaid style dress. It is fashioned with all black crepe in the background and an accent of ivory beads and fine lace along the front of the bodice. It’s actually quite a stunning piece of work. But with the bold black statement holding the majority of the eyes attention and the delicate implication of the cream detail I felt that an added accompaniment of a shoe in an identical color would make the quintessential  statement needed. However, the thing is that she lives in Chicago and that makes it just a tad bit difficult for us to actually get to get together and exchange ideas. So I thought I would do a post on what shoe options she would choose from just to give her a place to start looking, as well as bridal and formal options for others as well. Here are some of the foot fancies I thought would style nicely with a dress fit for a princess or a queen.





Menbur Julia Peep Toe Pump $153

Rene Caovilla Pump here  Badgley Mischka Kiara Pump here

I fell for both of these shoes immediately- the exaggerated beading on the D’Orsay  sling-back pump was staggering and the simplest peep toe platform gets a boost of excitement from an adornment of carefully sculpted rhinestones nestled on the back.




Blue by Betsey Johnson Corey Ivory Satin Beaded Caged Heels $129

Love the symmetry on this shoe hence its wayward strap structure and the added bead work is a definite plus.

Rene Caovilla Embellished Lace Halter Pump

Although this darling is somewhat of a stretch in terms of price point for most, in the aspect of design aesthetic and utmost craftsmanship it begs to be featured.

Lola Cruz  Tie Pump

Don’t think for one moment that the subtle tie strap on this pair make them any less of a style maker than their former counter parts; judging by the laser cut detail and amber hued gem enchantments they entail, they make every bit of an impact.





Lanvin Pump

When we’re looking for that one and only it really only boils down two two things, doesn’t it? Does it fit? How much is it? Well for this Lanvin lovely you really just want to know, “Do you have my size?” because c’mon, just look at that stunner? If money were no issue…. enough said.

These were just a few of the many, many showstoppers I fell in love with and would certainly die {to quote a very famous stylist/designer/author/celebrity/ business entrepreneur/omg she wears so many hats I could go on and on} okay I’m talking to you Rachel Zoe, for. Any one of these would find a welcome home in my closet, although I’m not quite sure there would be any room and I actually have two closets one especially for shoes, but don’t read too much into that, I live in L.A. in a town-home. Anyway, if you’re dressing up this spring and have need or desire for a fabulous pair or two or three of creamy nude toned beauties I hope you find a pair and I hope some of these sparked a light of curiosity to go out and pick them up.


Wishing you Love and Luxury,

  1. Those caged heels are definitely my favorites! Classy but edgy. They actually remind me of my prom heels (only mine were black and covered on the back). Really like your choices and your writing is really good! 🙂


    • Thank you, Pipsysl! I think my favorite is the Rene Caovilla…..the halter pump at the bottom….the lace and pearl beading just made my heart skip a beat. Thanks for your comment. And thanks for following my post. Hope to hear more from you.

      • Lace and pearls together are one of the most sophisticated combos ever. Can’t wait to read more from you! Have a great weekend 🙂
