Color Study - Whites

After doing the Color Study -Pinks, I thought I would go to an easy color... white. Now, I do love white shoes (I know a lot of people don't) but how hard could it be?

Well, first I had to decide if I wanted to include creams and neutrals in the mix too. It quickly got too out of hand and color difference too great. So I focused on whites, off-whites and those shoes that were patterned but mainly white.

There were still 20! And a lot more flat shoes in this range. Is that because I'm from Florida where you can wear white more often? Hmmm.....

Not too many really fancy shoes in this color study either.

I went back to the pinks and added who made each brand so let's add that in here too.

Row 1 - left to right:
- Keds Champion canvas
- Steve Madden Northh
- Muffy's saddle shoes
- Kenneth Cole Oxfords (got these for $15 from DSW!)
- Isaac Mizrahi for Target Gail driving mocs

Row 2:
- Charles David Entice (I love white patent. And with tassles!)
- Hype Bliss slides
- Wild Diva floral platform peep-toes
- Sergio Rossi Pelle Mexico (these have an amazing heel)
- Jessica Simpson Like

Row 3:
- BP Fabulous satin polka-dot peep-toe
- Martinez Valero Adam high heel mules in white linen
- Stuart Weitzman Omega d'Orsays
- Wild Diva Balmorals with black velvet ribbon trim (I think these were LV knock-offs)
- Jimmy Choo Star pumps

Row 4:
- Stella McCartney Jupiter platform diamonte sandals
- Wet Seal strappy booties
- Mossimo Patty espadrilles
- Kenneth Cole City of Angels platform t-straps
- Oh, Deer! Pistachio pumps

Of all the white shoes, I think these Jimmy Choos are possibly the prettiest. Sadly they were a overly wishful eBay buy a long time ago, and as size 36s, they are too big for me. I can wear them with pants but otherwise they look silly. And I rarely wear pants.

It's such a shame because I adore them and my favorite part about them is this little asymetrical cut and stitch detail. How neat is that?

I have much less of a Summer here, so I need to get these whites out and about asap!

I kinda want to come over and just sort of roll around in your shoes. Would that be strange?

Love the whites. As for the JChoos. Have you tried putting a little insole in there to make it fit better?

OMG, what a giant shoe collection and I'm so impressed by how clean and perfect all those white shoes are! My mom is all about poo-poo'ing white things, because "it'll get dirty." But I love and buy white all the same, much to her horror. :)
