Heel to Toe

Everyone needs a classic pair of nude pumps to pair with a cocktail dress or work outfit. Here are our favorites at price points from $25 to $250 (with one exception - leave it to Louboutin).

Chinese Laundry Live Show

Chinese Laundry

The Live Show is a sweet little strappy sandal. A patent leather nude pump, it features a sexy t-strap and would be a great addition to a daytime or night time look.

BCBGeneration Dacotah


This strappy nude sandal sparkles and shines. The Dakota features gold studded details interspersed with gold glitter. A chic ankle strap has an adjustable buckle and the 3 ½ inch heel is covered with gold glitter.

Franco Sarto Amelie Pump

Franco Sarto

A patent leather sling-back, the color “Dune” is almost a greyish bone that would lend this sophisticated pair of nude pumps to any outfit. The pointed toe and side cut-out would work as well at the conference table as they would the bistro table.

Christian Louboutin Tuctivista

Christian Louboutin

The Louboutin label falls a little far out of our price parameters but they are definitely worth a look, especially if you are in the mood to splurge. Gilt accents flash at the toe and heel of this patent leather peep-toe nude pump. A 1 ¼ inch platform balances out the 5 ¼ inch heel. The Tuctivista is a scene-stealer and will make heads turn wherever you wear them.

Calvin Klein Gayle

Calvin Klein

The classic pump in the “Vapor Kid” color is stylish and smart. The grey patent leather is popping up everywhere this spring, and this is a pair that could be described as a wardrobe staple that can see you through many seasons. An easy slip on, pointed-toe pump features a gold band at the top of the heel.

Sole Society Aveline

Sole Society

Aveline in the color “Latte” is a floral motif nude pump. A leather floral applique on the side of the foot lends a feminine edge to this pretty pair. The wooden look heel is 3 inches.

Vince Camuto Bellamy

Vince Camulto

Bellamy in the softest suede “Mood Grey” is as sultry as it is stunning. The two part nude pump has a closed toe and delicate ankle laces. A 3 ½ inch heel adds drama.

Guess Glamo

G by Guess

The Glamo dress sandal in “Light Gold” couldn’t be any more glamorous. Punch your look up with the rhinestone upper and open toe. A high 4 ½ inch heel and closed heel make this one of our most dramatic favorites.

Ivanka Trump Carra 10

Ivanka Trump

Our favorite Trump this side of politics, Ivanka knows her shoes and the Carra 10 can only be described as super-chic. Cork is back in a big way and this is a classic nude pump featuring a cork-like appearance. The texture and high gloss will make these a stand-out on the dance floor.

Charles David Pact

Charles David

The Pact Pump by Charles David is a go-to for any girl on the go. The classic style is a favorite at work and it’s a favorite for after work. The 4”inch heel is high but devotees claim they are comfortable all day.

Those are our favorite nude pumps. We love the versatility, the stylish charm and all the outfits that a nude pair of pumps can match. So many possibilities, so little time.

Spring Heels Under $100

Spring shoes are one of the best things about this season! Antsy feet rejoice as they bask in the spotlight of a polished pedicure and a dainty peep toe. Warm sun feeds not only the soul, but if feeds the sole. Here are our favorite spring high heels that we think you will love just as much as we do.

Nine West’s Kookie Slingback Mary Jane Pointy Toe

Be still my beating heart, these slingbacks are the sweetest! With a pointy toe and a 3-inch heel, the Kookie can be on day or night or day to night with nary a wobble. We loved them in denim with nude accents until we saw the nude snake skin and then the black snake skin and now, well, we are just in love with them all.

Sole Society’s Angelica

This red white gingham pointed toe pump is sophisticatedly cute. A sexy Strawberry Shortcake would wear to these to the office to perfect her strong lunch game. So stylish with a nude 2 and 3/4 inch heel, they are a go-to spring high heel.

Sole Society’s Jensine Suede Mid Heel Pump

What makes this mid heel so fierce is the edgy bow embellishment on the side. Soft mustard suede meets a 2 ½ inch heel which means these shoes were made for walking. Plus, the neutral color matches everything.

The Glamo Dress Sandal by Guess

The always glamorous Guess brings us this light gold beauty, tastefully doused in rhinestones. With an open toe and closed heel, these boast a 4 and ½ inch heel promising that these spring high heels will bring some sparkle to your step!

Vince Camuto’s Callista Floral Pump

This pair of heels is a study in juxtaposition. The Callista has the classic line of the pump yet is covered in a colorful floral print. The 4-inch heel holds the sophistication high while the bright floral brings the fun.

Steve Madden Varcityy

Another floral pump, the Varcityy features a fabric floral print, but also a slick black heel and a black outline. The heel contrasts with the vibrant colors with a shiny black, almost patent leather, which gives this sweet pair a serious edge.

Vince Camuto Baletts

Love the colors in these floral prints: ruby with a touch of turquoise and navy. A closed toe and closed heel with cut-outs in between, these spring high heels are simply a must for a spring night on the town.

Sole Society’s Magnolia in Poppy

Poppy is one of our favorite colors because, simply stated, it pops! We love it on the extremities, especially feet and fingernails. Butter soft suede has laser-cut details which lend this pair an edge. A pointy toe and 3-inch heel make this a winner on any court.

Hannah Dress Sandal By Fergalicious

Fans of the strappy sandal will love the Hannah! Crisscrossing faux leather or fabric straps wrap the foot, leaving the toe exposed yet keep the foot secure with a closed back and ankle strap. A traction outsole and 3 inch heel will keep you on your toes and on the dance floor.

Camba by Jessica Simpson

Yes, you “Camba” with this saucy pair of spring high heels. A flirtatious lace fabric keeps it sexy and keeps it understated. The peekaboo mesh and Vivid Red color make this classic pump flirty and fresh.

We are pleased to present this small selection of wallet-friendly finds; and we hope that this helps you spring into your Spring season in a very fashionable way.

5 of The Highest Heels Ever Worn

High heels are a fashion essential, and they seem to be getting higher by the day. Gone are the days when the highest heels and stilettos were limited to 4-5 inches; today these are considered standard, with women moving up to 6, 7, 8 and even 18 ½ inches in some rare cases. If you thought you weren’t ready to go above 3 inches yet, then it is about time that you checked these famous designers and celebrities out who have taken high heels to a whole new level, and have the recognition of wearing the highest heels ever.


Lady Gaga is very close to becoming the ambassador for extreme high heels shoes. A complete look not only consists of wearing the right dress, the right hair and makeup but also wearing the perfect shoes... and in Lady Gaga’s case, the latter takes on epic proportions. There are numerous high heels to Lady Gaga’s credit, including the crystallized heels she wore to the 2010 Grammy awards, the 10-inch Alexander Mcqueen snake skin ankle breakers she wore to the MTV VMA’s 2010 and not to forget the sky-high heel-less heels. But the highest heels that she has worn so far have been the 24-inch heels she wore to the CFDA Fashion Awards.

It is another story altogether when a super model falls-that even on the runway. But that is exactly what happened when Naomi Campbell dared to don 10 inch mock croc platforms on the runway in 1999. Well, who knew times would change so much that the 10 inch platforms will become the norm, but have to give her brownie points for trying it back in the day.

The Mcqueen house has become one of the most daringly practical names in the fashion industry. Whether it was the man himself, or Sarah Burton now, their collections are whacky, practical and always in demand. And that has, over the years, only encouraged them to express their creativity. And the 12-inch high heels that Heidi Klum wore on the Mcqueen Fall 2009 runway showcasing the extreme high heel shoes are yet another evidence of their objective to offer wearable extreme fashion.

Taylor Momsen is known for a lot of things. From gaining worldwide popularity due to her twisted character in Gossip Girl to becoming a teenage icon, she has been evolving in more ways than one. And she obviously has no intentions of slowing down. She wore platform heels that had a small opening and title "tips", and a dollar bill on the inside. Where other celebrities were pulling fashion off, she went ahead and pretty much made these impractical heels practical!

You cannot talk about the highest heels without mentioning the ones that made it to the Guinness book of World Records. The highest heeled shoes commercially available, according to the famed recordkeeping establishment, are the 20 inch platform boots created by the Indian designer James Syiemiong.

These are some of the highest heels ever created, and with stars like Lady Gaga and Taylor Momsen expressing their individuality in every way they can, the sky is the limit. While these feats of the human foot are more than likely to be attention-grabbing schemes, there is no doubt that as the heel grows, the comfort level shrinks and the price tag goes up. Be sure to use some form of high heel cover to keep your fashion investments looking as good as the day you bought them.

5 Favorite Movie Clips of Women Helping Women

Have you ever watched a film with a lead female character or two and enjoyed it so much that at the very end you felt a little bit…emotional? And has this feeling perhaps led you to think, “I need to watch this again with (insert BFF’s name here) and I need to call her RIGHT NOW and tell her all about it”?

It happens. It happens and it doesn’t have anything to do with quantifiable evidence. A feel-good-about-the-sisterhood movie might not have won any Oscars or stars or thumbs up, but it can make you feel lucky to have your girlfriends and it might make you want to be a better one.

A strong group of girlfriends is like having a pot of gold and it’s always a delight to see that magic happen on the big screen (or even the little screen if you're anything like me in college).

Here’s a very short list, in somewhat chronological order, of our favorite movies featuring women helping women. 

1. Thelma & Louise (1991)

    Iconic; Thelma & Louise is what every woman thinks of when she thinks of films about women helping women. World-weary Louise helps doe-eyed Thelma out of uncomfortable man situations while fleeing to Mexico in a convertible mustang. Their decision-making, how the stakes get higher and higher, the scenery and that soundtrack! This film surpasses the term chick flick and is more a spiritual thriller with some seriously young Brad Pitt eye-candy thrown in. Best movie ending ever. I’d probably floor it off a cliff if Harvey Keitel was chasing me.

    2. Steel Magnolias (1989)

    Another one not to miss, I think of this film as paving the way for Thelma & Louise. A high-voltage cast of southern women see their friend's (Sally Field) daughter (Julia Roberts) marry and then die a tragic death. The life challenges they face together and the way these old and new friends communicate is so subtle and sensitive it is a good friendship lesson to us all. Full of excellent one-liners and killer scenes (armadillo cake anyone?), this is a woman's classic.

    3. Practical Magic (1998)

    Okay, this didn’t get many stars, not many good reviews or any thumbs up. There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of it... but it’s fun to watch with your girlfriends anyway. The basic plot is that two sister witches have been cursed upon. The curse entails that the men they fall in love with will die an early death. They also drink piña coladas and have dance parties in the middle of the night. Need I say more? Goran Visnjic -- Dr. Luka from ER, hello! (that’s who put Croatia on the map for me) -- is the swarthy bad guy. The sisters have to work together to exorcise them out of their lives. Maybe not technically a classic, but a fun watch, especially around Halloween.

    4. Sex in the City-Movie #1 (2008)

    This could not be left out. Like it or not, Sex in the City is the TV series of our generation that taught women to speak to each on another level. The movie features the characters we all know and scenes that we’ve all been through before, packing up and moving, escaping from the love of your life. Buying your wedding dress at a vintage store and then ditching your penthouse -- oh, wait-that would NEVER happen. Regardless of reality these are four friends that stick together through the best of times and the worst of times.

    5. Bridesmaids (2011)

    Bridesmaids is a great example of women helping women and the dark jealous resentment that some women have the capacity to harbor. This is a film about two frenemies planning their friend’s wedding. Lots of funny and tragic things happen. Actually, many tragic things happen. However the grand finale is the wedding scene featuring the band Wilson Phillips singing “Hold On”, which is an awesome way to show the women had united.

    Why We Love Films About Women Helping Women

    A few themes stood out in compiling this list: tragedy, bonding, sensitivity and above all, a sense of humor. Leading lady characters carry a depth and grace that isn’t often seen in their male counterparts, and the traits of depth and grace are exemplified when they are helping each other.

    Obviously, this is an abbreviated list, but there are so many! Please share your favorites and explain why.
