Nine West: Just-My-Type

Ciao a tutti!

Incorporating color into your Shoe Arsenal need not be a daunting undertaking.  While colors express a rainbow of sentiment, choosing or even utilizing a haute hue can leave one fraught with emotion, and as a result, those beautiful silver stilettos, pink platforms or purple pumps remain in store instead of gracing ones' feet.

Pantone, fashion's leading authority on color, virtually eliminates the guess work of what to chose and how to use your color choice in their semi-annual color report.  For the 2014 winter, their Palette of Many Moods which were chosen to, "...enhance and enliven [ones'] outlooks as the colder months set in."

"Exotic Acai adds mystery and richness to the palette." Incorporating this elegant shade of purple with Emerald (Green), Samba (Red), Koi (Orange) and Vivacious (Fuchsia) one can create color combinations which are regal, spirited, dramatic and dazzling.

Baci a tutti!

Ciao a tutti!

New shoes...and what better way to celebrate than with a platform pump in a rich fabric and a bold color?  Single-soled pumps made a resurgence last year, but a must have for 2014 is a dynamic pump with a sexy internal platform.
Platforms are a great way to add stability to a shoe.  Taking down the height of a heel, the platform adds comfort, allowing for one to achieve a towering look without  having to conquer a sky-high heel.  And the beauty about the internal platform is that it still gives you the 'look' of a single-soled pump!

Baci a tutti!
