In the buff…

Nude.. Beige.. Tan… Khaki…Ecru 

These are a million names for that delightfully neutral shade that seems to be popping up everywhere these days. The beauty of beige is that it works well with warm tones, as well as cool, and makes the perfect companion for black, as well as white.

Below is a sampling of the tantalizing tans that will keep you looking good through the summer and into fall…

These ultra- modern heels are a personal favorite of mine not only for their sleek shape but for their bold coupling of jet black and creamy beige. * Lawrence by Nine West, available @  


As the summer rolls along, I encourage you to heat up your own look with this user-friendly shade. Not all trends are for everyone but I believe that there is a creamy neutral out there with your name on it.
