And since I know someone will ask, let me beat you to the punch.  I would probably not wear tights with these shoes.  Instead, I would wear sheer nude hose from Donna Karan or micro-fishnets.  I think black is too harsh, and even dark grey would be a bit jarring.  Navy might be the old shade that I think would work if paired with a navy skirt.

    Belle, I really like the Cole Haan pumps…and of course the Louboutin’s…but, quite frankly, I think the red sole is a little inappropriate for work. Two reasons: a) everyone now knows you spent $700+ on shoes; and b) it just seems a little too sexy. Thoughts??

    I own those Chelsea Pumps in three colors (and purchasing them in black soon). They are so so so so comfortable I can’t even tell you. Highly recommend!

    I have those Chelsea Pumps too (and one pair in gray). I wear them a lot with navy and black (when I want a little pop of color.

  4. Bee says:

    What about burgundy tights? To follow the 2+2 rule 🙂

  5. Barbara says:

    I’m only buying pointed toes…..and, yes, there are comfy ones out there. So over rounded toes.

    • Belle says:

      I’m kind of gravitating that way myself. Saving my round toes for casual wear.

      • Barbara says:

        Each season, I always check out the newest Stuart Weitzman shoes
        and boots and either pick up a few of them or downgrade with their styles in mind. It’s never failed me.

        Love your blog, Belle. So many great ideas!
