the study of nude pumps

4 Oct

Nine West pointy-toe nude pump with 4-inch heel.  (Apologies for the grainy pic, it was pretty dark by the time I finally got around to photographing these shoes.)  I’ve always read that nude pumps make you seem considerably taller because there is no break in your leg-line.  It wasn’t until I was sifting through the dozen or so pics I took for this post that I realized these shoes are basically non-existent.  Seriously, this pic has the best distinction of pump vs. leg, and even with the contrast bumped up you can hardly distinguish shoe from skin.

As worn by my 2-year old niece, Creampuff.  Yes, I’m drafting her into my Stiletto Army at a very young age.  And no, her real name is not Creampuff.

    They definitely make Creampuff’s legs look longer. I mean, look at those!

    Funny how we all start training protégés. My BF’s daughters favorite thing to do at my house is try on all my heels. :) Imagine a 6 year old in my calf boots… which were thigh boots on her. :)

    I love that Creampuff is appearing over here too! She is the most adorable, smart and fashion forward toddler! Those shoes are perfect for her.

    [...] Creamie made her first appearance on The Shoeologist a few days ago.  I’m sure she’ll be a scientist when she grows up [...]
