Ask Belle Roundup Vol. IV, No. Thirty
Jul 14, 2014
My sister-in-law is getting married and she would like the bridesmaids to wear black wedges since the wedding is outdoors. The dresses are knee-length satin a-line. The wedding is more casual and she wants something that we would be able to wear again. Everyone is on a tight budget, so something preferably under $75 would be great. Thanks!
There are two choices you need to make: 1) sandal, open-toe or closed-toe, or 2) heel height. These Bandolino sandals are the ones I would choose. If you want open-toe, I would try these Nine West peep-toes. For closed-toe, these Calvin Klein Saxton wedge is as classic as you can get.
Can you recommend a natural remedy for acne? I struggle with blemishes on my chin, but I’m tired of pouring chemicals on them.
Thank you, Kate
I had reasonably good luck with the Burt’s Bees acne treatment, which is all-natural. For a face soap that also functions as a treatment, I like African Black Soap. I would also try Lucas Papaw Ointment, which is packed with fruit acids. It comes in a jar or tube. It’s also great for chapped lips and dry skin.
I love you blog, thank you so much for writing a blog that applies to the lives of women who don’t spend their whole lives baking cupcakes and organizing coffee table trays. I have a quick question: What’s you favorite nail polish color?
Love CHS! Annalise
What a Sophie’s Choice-type question! I will not choose! My favorite red is Essie Lollipop. My favorite berry is Essie Sure Shot. My favorite purple is NARS Tokaido Express. The best pink is OPI From Ears to Tail.
