I'm in a wedding next month, and my friend (the bride, duh) requested that her bridesmaids wear nude patent leather heels with our dresses.
A simple enough request for most, but unlike Kate Middleton, I am not armed with a never-ending arsenal of simple, nude patent leather pumps -- mainly because (full disclosure) I've just never really found a pair I liked.
So finding a pair that struck the right balance between my personal style and bridesmaid-appropriateness was quite the quest. Oh, and I had a budget.
I'm not exaggerating when I say that I've spent months trying to find the right pair for my friend's special day, but thankfully, I stumbled upon this pair by Aldo. The pointed toe and d'Orsay style keep them from feeling too Princess-y (sorry, I mean Duchess-y) but they're still classic.
Aldo Livergnano pumps, $80, available at Piperlime.com.
