When all else fails...just go NUDE!

Whoa. Wait a minute! What do you mean "go nude"? Calm down ladies. Keep your shirts on...literally. I am referring to footwear, handbags, hosiery, makeup, and nail polishes. To take a solid black dress from dressy to casual, try throwing on a pair of nude heels. A great peep toe adds that extra sexiness that we might be looking for in a more casual look.

If you have a hard time finding that perfect shoe, try an AMAZING new line of "Design your own" shoes... Milkandhoneyshoes.com.

If you cannot find that handbag that is just the right color, grab yourself a nude one. There are some beautiful bags for Spring in the nude color family. Piperlime.com and endless.com are two fabulous websites to check out if you are in need of a new pair of shoes or handbag...or what about BOTH!

Check out this slouchy shoulder bag for only $80 from Topshop: http://us.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=33060&storeId=13052&productId=2080888&langId=-1&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=208705&parent_categoryId=208582&sort_field=Relevance&pageSize=20&refinements=category~[210032208705]&noOfRefinements=1&siteID=J84DHJLQkR4-XKs_gVexJZZBsN5e74Fo5Q&cmpid=usls_deeplink&_$ja=tsid:19905

aaaah! I am freaking out right now!!! BCBGeneration has a metallic cross body bag for only $38. OK! Take a deep breath and click on the link below because you know you want it!!!


When it comes to hosiery, you think nude is boring. You may be right, but try this on for size. A great pair of nude fishnets will take you many "fun" places. They are sexy, but an understated sexiness which is great for a daytime look or a more casual evening look. There are many different prints which come in a nude or natural color. It allows you to take your look to another level without going to the extreme or being the dreaded "overdressed."

Try this great pair by DKNY for only $14.50:


or maybe even these for only $14:


The "wrong" makeup colors can ruin a perfectly fabulous outfit! Why would you want to do that? Try a smokey eye with a nude lip...super seductive with some class. If you are one who feels that they NEED color on your lips then try a matte beige shadow with some major lashes and a stunning defined set of luscious lips. Unless you are going to a Halloween party or a similar event, steering clear of statement making lips, eyes, AND cheeks would be my opinion.


There is no need to spend a ton of cash to fill your makeup bag...try some great lines like Revlon or Maybelline. Smashbox is also a great brand. You can get the same colors from these lines at half the cost! Check out your local superstore for your many choices.

Remember...those who say it is wrong to go nude...should probably try it once it while! ;)
