Hi Whilst I am on the search for some Bridal shoes for my wedding, I realised I love CL nudes - would love a smallish heel - 70 max, I have black skin, so not sure if Nude would work for me? Does anyone know?X
That's a good question. My greatest attraction to nude is that (we all know) it elongates the legs. But if it is not a similar tone or a complimentary tone to your own skin color, that theory goes out the window, right? I think your best bet is to try them on and see what you think. I love the nude patent for me, but when I got the nude kid leather color, it was awful against my skin tone and I sold them. If you are near NM or BG, they have the nude patent simples in the 70 heel...go try them on. =)
JMO =) Congrats on your upcoming wedding by the way.
Thanks Purly, I am wearing a VW with a brown sash, so it could work, in an ideal world, I would wear white or ivory shoes. I will check out the sites given though, the reason for this problem is that my Husband to be is the same height as me, so a heel size of 70 and below would do, I asked a question about Nicole Kidmans shoes in Celebs and Louboutins - she had a small heel on, I would love them in brown, white, nude anything!!Lol!x
I don't think it would look good. I recall having seen a picture on here before of a nude tone CL on someone with black skin and it looked terrible in my opinion. What I can see looking pretty good on someone with black skin would be a beige patent. The Simples are available with a 70mm heel in a beige patent at Saks. Also a beige grease (sparkly) patent CL should look great...it's like beige and gold...check out the YoYo's on the Saks website they're 85mm.
Thanks Sara99, I went there, but was so busy trying to find bridal shoes, I did not look hard for brown or nude shoes, just know that it is going to be tough getting any CL's with a small heel.I will defo post pics when I get something or anything CL solidgold.x
