LBP (Little Black Pumps)

In my opinion, every woman should own a pair of classic, black, closed toe pumps. Whether they are leather or suede, 3 inches or 5 inches, you should own a pair. They are an essential part of your shoe collection. They can be worn with anything from a business professional look, to a casual lunch date. To me, they are the shoe equivalent of an LBD (Little Black Dress). Can you believe that I did not own a pair? I have all sorts of black heels, booties, and pumps, but I did not own a classic pair, until now. I ordered these on Monday, and they arrived yesterday. I could not wait to try them on. They are Charles by Charles David Pure Pump. Now all I need is a leather pair, and I’m good to go!
They now proudly sit on the shelves with some of their other siblings.
A special “Thank You” to The Trendy Socialite for suggesting that I turn one shoe facing inwards & one facing outwards so that I can fit more shoes on the shelves. That totally worked and I love the results!!!
On another note….Steve Madden  is having an additional 50% off their Women’s Clearance section. So if you don’t have those LBP’s,  now is the time to get them!!!

Thanks for stopping by,

    You have a Great shoe collection ! I also need some black closed toe pumps. I have some black pointy toe pumps but I need a rounded toe pair. I get too carried away with colorful and embellished shoes and then forget about the basics lol.

    Prissy I too need the classic black shoe! I have sling back, toes out, but not a classic black! Love that one, BUT I'm gonna need you to give up the pink and green shoe! The top of the heel is pink and the botton apple green! It's my 20th year in my sorority and I could sure rock them at my homecoming in October:) LOL Oh my sorors would be hating, lol!

    I like the way you have your shoes displayed. You have a great collection of shoes. Im sure you have more, because I dont see any boots. Looks like you have a very healthy addiction to footwear!
