Finally, It’s finally happened! Designers now know NUDE isn’t just one color…. Hip Hip Hooray!!!

unspecifiedI remember, a few years ago happily seeing Donna Karan selling with a variety of quality sheer hosiery in different shades for every skin tone from pale to deep chocolate.


Then Christian Louboutin created a line of nude shoes and now FLATS (yaaay! because his stilettos always hurt!) in different shades of “nude”.  I finally can wear a pair of nude shoes that are actually MY skin tone and not Barbie’s. I love Barbie but we don’t do the same “nude” …never have – never will and to be limited to only her shade and call it nude for me was a LIE everyone seemed to just go along with.

Now we can dare to wear our barely there’s in our actual real shades of pretty.
