Nine West Grounded Pumps ($89)

How hot are these Nine West pumps?  At 3.5″, they’re a bit above my preferred heel-height, but still in the realm of office appropriateness.  The color palette is so good.  They would be perfect with a black or an ivory dress.

Nine West has a number of affordable choice for fall.  I like these chic ankle-strap pumps in bold red.  And  I love these open-toed shoes for dinner or cocktails–they look great in every color.

Need boots?  Look no further.  They have casual cognac ankle boots in both flat and high-heeled styles.  They also have a great, buckled flat boot that comes in six basic colors and materials. All three pair are simple and perfect for fall.  I also love these suede high heel ankle boots in black, they’d be perfect with tights.

    I swore off Nine West when they rolled out their offensive marketing campaign. They don’t get any of my money.

      I agree with you, their “starter husband hunting” ad is bothersome, tacky, and tasteless.

    I got a similar (and cheaper!) pair of Pour la Victoire pumps a month ago on MyHabit! I see that they are sold out now, but I’m not sure whether they’ll cycle back in on the sale rotation at MH.

    They’re gorgeous, quality, and comfortable! I get a lot of compliments on them!

    In case they do go back in stock and anyone is interested: https://www.myhabit.com/#page=d&sale=ABB08X12C6Q14&asin=B00GRS23VS&cAsin=B00GRS2OGC&fc=1

    Ugh it pains me because I love nine west, but I also hate their stupid marketing campaign!

    Nine West pumps are my go-to for work…I love the discontinued Rocha style so much that I hunt them down on eBay. Comfortable and decent quality for a very reasonable price point.

    I’m a huge Nine West fan for my “staple” shoes. Can’t beat shoes that are real leather for under 100 bucks!
