Silly Putty PumpsPosted: October 30, 2012
My sister and I just had an argument about nude shoes (pumps, specifically) the other day because she tried to push her old pair (which her post-baby feet had outgrown) on me. My sister insists that they’re awesome because they go with everything. I, on the other hand, have been educated in the Tom and Lorenzo School of Fashion Critique, and therefore can’t not refer to them as “Silly Putty pumps.” I think that they work in specific cases (with pants and with pale neutrals, according to TLo) but most of the time they just seem like such an unimaginative styling choice. And I have yet to see a woman whose legs look longer because she’s wearing nude shoes. It doesn’t help that my sister’s pair have all the elements that get me twitchy – nude color, peep-toe, platform heels. No thanks.
What about you guys? What’s your opinion on nude pumps? Actually, let me quote TLo once more. Nude pumps – Yea or Nay?
