Wardrobe Addition: Nude Heel/Shoe Mullet





I've never owned a nude heel, despite the number of style articles out there that tout its virtue.  Why not?  Honestly, we just never got on.  Most articles talk about a classic nude pump -- I have yet to find a pump that's truly comfortable, or at least bearable -- but most styles tend to be too shiny, too pale, too...something.

Enter the CoSTUME NATIONAL Vima Wedge.  I was at a TNT outlet sale one weekend and snagged these babies for $99 mid-check out. Score. They're not quite classic; the carved wood wedge and the black leather accents keep it from being too basic, but that's exactly what I've been missing.  From the front they look like a classic, almond shaped peep-toe nude heel that comes pretty close to my skin colour, but the wedge is what makes it for me.  I thoroughly adore all 3.25 inches of polished grainy gray, visible only when I walk away.  

What's the expression?  Business in the front, party in the back.

    1. They're okay to walk in -- there's definitely some pressure on the balls of my feet after a long day, but I think after a couple of wears they'll soften beautifully.

  2. Nice find! I think you'd be able to wear them for quite a while. Looks very versatile too.

    1. Yes! I wore them the entire and my feet only started hurting towards the end. After a couple of breaking-in sessions they should be perfect

  3. NICE! I like em. I love the look of heels, but my lifestyle rarely needs them hahaha. Plus, I'm 5'10" and I'd tower over everyone in heels haha!
