Nude Shoes

What I love about my job, is that it is always changing...because fashion is always changing! BUT, the rules don't change. As the teacher, I must be constantly learning as well. I learned a new rule after reading my InStyle mag, and I must share it with you.

If you are my client, you know my rules about shoes (wear pointy toes to make the leg look longer, don't wear shoes w/ ankle straps...cuts off the leg, etc.). Well, I have a new one. Wear nude shoes! Duh, why didn't I think of this on my own? It makes total sense. If you wear a shoe the same color as your skin, it makes your legs look longer, and like they continue on and on.

Since I read this article, I have noticed lots of people doing this on TV. They probably always have, I just didn't notice it. On The View this morning, it looked like Elizabeth Hassleback's legs weren't going to stop! They don't have pictures or videos posted on their website yet, but she had on a cute black vest (worn as a shirt) with turquoise short-shorts and...nude heels. I mean, didn't she like just give birth, and she looks freakin' fabulous. I love her!

Anyway, sorry for rambling. Just wanted to share my exciting new rule. And look out Ciao Bella clients...nude shoes are going to be a must on your list!

GREAT pointer. THANKS!!! :)
I love Elizabeth Hasselbeck too! Isn't it amazing how tiny she is already?! Yeah, I saw her on the cover of some magazine in a bikini talking about how she lost the weight without dieting. Must be nice!
