The Perfect Shoes for Your LBD

Fashion plays such a large part in the whole Sex and the City franchise, so it’s no wonder that you want your feet to look as smashing as possible! To follow up from yesterday’s post on the little black dress, we’re going to give you a few great shoes to wear for however you celebrate the release of the long-awaited sequal.

First off, you MUST get a pedicure, or at the very least, paint your toenails! Regardless of whether you’re wearing peep-toe or closed toe shoes, have your nails done. You’ll instantly feel more glamorous. My suggestion? You can’t go wrong with a dark red on your nails or even a delicate pink.

These pumps from Poetic License (on sale for only $64.50!) are the perfect pop of color for your LBD (also available in black, for someone who wants style without committing to the color). Color works well when you’re starting with basically a blank canvas (i.e. the solid dark dress). Just go for small bursts of a bright color paired with simple accents (such as silver bangles).

The sparkles on this Francesca Wedge from Apepazza ($135) will add a sense of sophistication and sass to your outfit. Bling is a nice little added touch to any outfit (in moderation, of course). The key is always to not overdo it, so don’t wear hot pink shoes completely covered in rhinestones. You want to look classy, not trashy.

Check back tomorrow to find out what accessories to wear in order to complete your outfit!

Looking Stylish with Cropped Cargos

One of today’s hottest trends is pairing a basic utilitarian pair of cropped cargos with a great heel (usually in a more neutral color). The pairing of something with such an accepting cut/fit and heels will add much class and a hint of casual sexiness to your look.

Here are a few tips on what to pair with each style of cargo pants:

For loose/cuffed cargo pants – go with a strappy heel to show off the gorgeous calves that you have and make your legs look a mile long. Every head will turn in your direction.

For straight leg or super skinny cargos – you can’t go wrong with a heel that has a hint of bling, they play nicely off of each other. Don’t over do it though, these Nicole sandals would be perfect!

When you’re wearing a cargo with more of a hint of volume and slouch, try wearing a chunky wedge to balance out the volume. This style is great if you’re a little self-conscious about your body as it disguises whatever parts of your body you might be a little worried about.

We have some great XCVI cropped cargo pants in store that will be perfect for whatever look you decide to pull off. Stop in today and check out our selection (we get more and more in everyday).

We also just got some great new items in from Yummie Tummie and Hard Tail!
