Deal Of The Day: Up To 30% Off Pink Pumps At Bloomingdale's Summer Shoe Sale
June 4, 2008
This summer, as usual, metallics, animal prints, and beachy shades of ocean blue, sandy tan, and sunshine yellow will be hot, hot, hot. But in a sea of tropical hues and blinding bling, don't forget about perennial favorite pink. Let your inner Barbie out by slipping into a pair of pink pumps, then hitting Malibu in your cotton candy-colored Corvette (or the local mall in your hybrid – your call!)
Bows, buckles and big ol' straps: these Nanette Lepore Bad Girl sandals ($238, were $340) have them all. If you're already taking the color over the top (and you are, if you pick these orchid-hued suede pumps) why not go overboard on the details. The best part of these might be the thick, wood-grain heels, a whimsical contrast to all that fuchsia.
Think your feet have to be molded like Babs' to fit comfortably into pumps? Then you haven't tried a pair, like these Cole Haan Sari Air slingbacks ($206, were $295), that have Nike Air cushioning built in for comfort's sake. You probably couldn't run a marathon in these three-inch patent pumps, but you could at least make a decent stand on the dance floor.
If there's anything girlier than a magenta satin peeptoe, it's a magenta satin peeptoe with a huge Swarovski crystal smack in the middle. Exhibit A: these oh-so-feminine Solitaire pumps from Stuart Weitzman ($227, were $325). The ultimate in girl-glam, these evening shoes are sure to add pop to even the most modest of LBDs.
