Must Have Orange Pumps and Heels

Here are my picks for must have orange pumps and heels that women will want for their spring wardrobes..many of (what I believe to be) the best looking shoes are $50 or less!

Bright orange closed toe cork platform wedge sole heels with ankle strap
These perky new, orange shoes have a 3/4 inch platform, a 4 inch wedge heel and an adjustable buckle closure ankle strap that women will love to wear with skirts, jeans or slacks. The platform sole and high heel height give the illusion of a longer leg which is something all girls want and this pair can be yours for only $50! Not bad for one of the newest and most fashionable looks for spring.

Orange peep toe wedge heel platform womens shoes

These orange peep toe shoes have a 1 1/4 inch platform sole and the height of the wedge heel is 4 3/4 inches. Wedges are a great choice when a lady knows she will be walking on soft ground where high heels would simply not work or anytime added stability is desirable. They are almost as sexy as spike heels and easier to manage on uneven terrain. These pretty peep toe pumps are a bargain at only $49.00!

Sexy peep toe orange high heels with buckle closure ankle strap

I can hear those of you looking for something super sexy saying "Enough with the wedge heels already!". Alrighty, how about something promiscuous? With a challenging 5 1⁄4 inch spike heel and a very interesting and different platform sole, these made the third of my list of must have orange pumps and heels with a relatively low price point of only $69.00.

Those choices fulfill your orange shoe wardrobe needs for casual, a day at the office and a night out clubbing with the girls. My next pick covers dressy orange heels for a wedding or any special formal occasion.

Orange satin high heel pumps with platform soles make perfect orange peep toe shoes for a wedding with 4 3⁄4 in heels and platform soles

Your Nina Stasy orange satin high heel pumps will be the envy of the bride at any wedding or special formal occasion. Choose your hair and makeup, evening wear or cocktail dress carefully to avoid your jeweled high heels outshining your outfit. They are SO affordable that they will leave plenty of room in your clothing budget to purchase the perfect ensemble in, of course, orange!

Perfect Blue Peacock Feather Prom Dress

I found this perfect, blue peacock feather prom dress while doing a search for MORE prom dresses with feathers similar to the ensemble I put together yesterday.

Immediately following yesterday's post, more than a few girls contacted me to say they needed something in a more "forgiving" style and with a slightly longer skirt.

This gorgeous plus size junior dress may be exactly what these young ladies are looking for.

There are no actual feathers on the dress there are other decorative details including embroidered peacock feathers that are applied with metallic embroidery thread and sparkling beads on the short mesh skirt.

The lightly padded bust and the full skirt may be the ideal style to give any girl a sexy, hour glass figure.

The design of this dress makes it suitable for a teenage girl's prom as well as a formal cocktail dress.

The perfect shoes would be either a champagne or silver satin evening sandal or a strappy metallic silver platform.
Badgley Mischka Fierce 4 1/2 inch heels platform strappy evening sandal in pewter silver gold metallic satin or leather
The style name of the sandals is as eye-catching as the shoes themselves; Fierce! Which is exactly what a teenage girl's look will be when she steps out for a night on the town with them on her pretty feet! For this dress, silver metallic seemed a little too "bright" and shiny. Pewter somehow seems more appropropriate and allows the dress to shine.

This pewter color, beaded evening bag is adorable but I worried that the beadwork may be too much and compete with the decorations on the bodice of the dress. What do you think?

The beading and sequins are exquisite and the color is perfect but I am still looking for something simpler that works. I looked at a lot of pewter metal bags but kept going back to this one because it looks so expensive but only costs $29.99.

Since the blue peacock feather prom dress has a romantic, retro look my hair and makeup suggestions have a 60s feel. Bump the hair, layer on the gel eyeliner and repeat the vivid colors of the dress in your eye shadow color palette. This prom dress has a big personality and calls for a dramatic hairdo and makeup!

The Perfect Prom Dress with Feathers, Accessories and Shoes

Finding the perfect prom dress with feathers will be easier than ever this year! Our favorite designer BeBe has gotten us off to a spectacular start with this sexy yet sweet style that would be the standout at any cocktail party or prom.

See More Pics Here
If there is a rule against wearing a strapless, short dress with feathers, simply buy a bolero with (dyed to match?) feathered trim to bring your dress up to code for the occasion without sacrificing any of the sexy details that will make it a wardrobe favorite for clubbing spring break and during your summer and possibly winter vacations!

Beyond a short jacket or bolero, you will need a stunning minaudiere or evening clutch in silver or gold.

Silver or Gold? Which do you like best?
This sparkling evening clutch purse is CHEAP and so perfect for for this dress as well as functional. It's just the right size to hold your iphone, keys to your car and a few hair and makeup essentials.

Regardless of which metallic color that you prefer, you will find yourself drawn to this purse again and again for years! It's just that timeless and versatile.

And now for the perfect pair of strappy, evening sandals to show your pretty pedicured toes and legs to full advantage.

Find Shoes on Sale!
Beading, sequins and crystals are delightful but these platform peep toe heels with a metallic, gold snakeskin print have that "something different" that is unexpected and very, very sexy.

The best hair and makeup for this prom dress with feathers would be dramatic but soft. No stark, black eyeliner, wild eye shadow or bright lipstick will be necessary to draw everyone's attention when you enter the room.

Your hairstyle should be loose and flowing if you have long hair. If your hair is short; something feathered would be fabulous. Treat your face, hair and body as an extension of the feathered short skirt of the dress.

Where to Get Feather Hair Extensions for Cheap

Everybody is anxious to know where to get feather hair extensions for cheap prices! The news is that feathers for hair are surprisingly cheap AND you can get them right in your own home!

See More Here

FINALLY, in the face of outrageously expensive products that slick my frizz or add volume to a limp dishrag of a hairdo there is an ornament that looks great, doesn't cost an arm and a leg and that is (relatively with practice) easy to do yourself!

Here's the skinny about how to apply and where to get feather hair extensions.

Q What color or type should I buy?

A The most popular type right now are the natural brown and beige feathers but I see lots of feathers in bright colors like neon purple, pink and green with sparkles worn on weekends in the clubs but those may be clips. My answer is that there is no permanent answer; fashion and styles change in the blink of an eye.

Q What kind of supplies do I need to attach the extensions to my hair and where is the best place to buy feathers for hair?

A You will need to buy feathers and a micro link hair crimp, threader and pliers. The best place to buy feathers and equipment would be online or at your favorite discount beauty supply store since either place would most likely be cheaper than if you bought at a salon.

Q How do I attach the feathers?

A First, decide where the extensions would look best. Should they frame your face or would you prefer them to add to the volume in the back?

After you make your decision:

1. Make a part in the locations where you want the extension.

2. Flip the layer of hair that will lie on top of your feathers over your head to get it out of the way while you work and clip it in place.

3. Pinch a small amount of hair together (15-20 strands of hair) and wet it only till damp not dripping.

4. After the strands are dampened, loosely twist them together. N

5. Now, slide the micro link onto the end of the twisted strand and slip it all the way to your scalp.

6. After the micro link is secured, slip the ends of the feather extensions (approximately 5 unless you bought the kind that are already bonded in a bunch) into the micro link making certain that short length of each of the feathers is sticking out of the top of the micro link.

7. Once you have the feathers inserted into the micro link, take your pliers and clamp down on the link securing the feathers in place. VOILA! Rinse and really, just repeat as many times as you need to get the look that you want.

Q How do I maintain and style my hair if I have feather extensions?

A Of course, you can shampoo and condition as usual; I wouldn't scrub like crazy in the area where you have the extensions but you don't have to let your hair and scalp get nasty. As far as styling is concerned, straighten or curl them however you like just use low heat so as not to scorch them. Burned feathers stink and don't look pretty.

Q How long will the feather hair extensions last?

A Depending on how well they were attached (did you follow the instructions?) and your hair style they can last anywhere from 1 to 6 months. They last longer if you have long hair and have to be replaced more often if you have short hair.

The great thing is that they are very cheap and easy to remove and re-attach!

I hope that I have answered your question on where to get feather hair extensions and how to do it yourself in a way that will complete your look and make your hairstyle everything that you wanted it to be.

If you have a new hair style or some styling tips that you would like to add or suggestions for what colors or types of feathers for hair work best, please feel free to share your advice in the comments section!

Fall 2010 Nail Color Trends

Those of us who have been waiting with baited breath for fall 2010 nail color trends were amazed...not a "they really took my breath away" kind of amazed. Actually, more of a stupefied kind of amazed, at least in the beginning.

It just took me a minute to acclimate myself and accept that I was reading about the stylishness of gray and beige nails for fall instead of hearing a description of the fingernails belonging to a crime victim being relayed to the cops by the medical examiner. Okay, I know that's drastic and even pretty gross but you have to admit that GRAY and BEIGE sounds dead and lifeless. But thankfully once you throw in some Chanel polish that is just a few shades short of being coal black (Paradoxal)or a smoky violet polish (Surreal Violet) by Estee Lauder things start to pep up a bit.

It's true that Fall 2010 Nail color trends probably are not going to be so cutting edge that they are remembered a decade or so from now, but the sophisticated look of the understated colors are really beginning to grow on me.


Perhaps the most predictable of all fall fashion trends for 2010 that I have seen lately is that fall foliage IS a trend. That's right beautifully colored leaves are being seen everywhere!

Splashes of leaves are featured in the slighted muted prints of fall fabrics see on the 2010 Dolce & Gabbana runway and it should come as no big surprise that fashion accessories are following suit in both color and leafy designs.

Another of the fall fashion trends for 2010 that I find particularly interesting is the use of fabric floral rosettes. Not that they are unattractive or anything but I usually associate flowers with spring fashion rather than fall. Granted, the fabric flower buds are in sumptuous jewel tone colors but somehow so many flowers in autumn seems a little odd to me.

I find it interesting that I see as many pairs of black ballet flats for women out and about in the stores as well as on many pairs of rapidly moving feet as late as the week after Memorial Day. In fact, far too flats are roaming about for the excuse that busy moms rushing out the door just slipped them on for lack of a more conveniently located or lighter colored pair of thongs or sandals.

Even celebrity moms who probably have an assistant or wardrobe organizer to put their outfits together are still looking sharp and sophisticated in black. For instance, just this week Katie Holmes and darling daughter Suri Cruise were on a shopping excursion at the Grove in LA and Katie’s choice of footwear was, you guessed it, black ballet flats. Baby Suri’s pretty toes were covered with a pair of pink ballet flats so the pastels, white or even lilac flats have yet to be nudged out of the running for late spring and early summer. But frugal fashion divas will be happy to hear that they will get more than one season’s use out of their black ballet flats.


At the time of this article, women with an ample budget for shoes are buying up black Chanel ballet flats like winter was just around the corner. Other favorites are the gathered ballet flat regardless of the brand, the easy clean, easy wash Crocs that are so comfortable and cute and Steve Madden’s black ballet flats, Facade.


What would the fashion industry be if they were not consistently reinventing the wheel? It would be completely out of character for them to consider the style of plain, black ballerina flats too good to improve. First, they add tiny heels, then gather the toes or add a belt across the tip of the toe with a brass or silver buckle. One of my favorites is the black ballet flat that allows that little peek of toe cleavage. It’s my opinion that this does for flat shoes what peep toes does for pumps. It takes a basic design and transforms it into something sexy and alluring. And who would have ever thought we could have that and the comfort of flats in one neat little package?
