the nudist dilemma...


1. the elisa
simple. classic.

now, darlings... i felt a touch of guilt over the fendi's.
i mean, i could certainly pay rent (or feed small children in chechnya) with that kind of cash!
so i took them back to neimans but, lo and behold, i had to take a gift card in exchange...

poor me.

i've always craved a fierce nude louboutin (classic, no?).
but i knew i'd have to shell out a hunge or two to get em....

well, lucky me....

i'd been forcing my wondergirls to do the p57 workout with me and they rewarded me with a VERY generous gift card to cover the loubie difference (those girls are so fabulous).....

soooo...

which do i pick?



2. the rolando
hidden platform makes the legs look leggier but they're on backorder. blerg...

what is your vote?

sharlyn emily said...

1 :)

Kins said...

I like #1, but I think #2 has your name all over it.

kayla and tyler said...

Oh! I like the Rolando, they just look sexier. I'm a shoe girl and very jealous you will be wearing one of those fabulous shoes!! You must post a picture once you buy them!!

christine said...

I love the first one. It looks more delicate and feminine.

Shauna said...

Rolando. I have them in black and they are the best. The Steve Madden nudes i have are basically a knock off of the Rolando and they are the sexiest shoes i own.

Rebekah said...

The Rolando for sure.

Kat said...

Wait for the Rolando! Every girl needs an extra inch to her leg!

Jodi said...

#2!

the emily said...

I like the classic look because they'll be around forever, but I've been so surprised at how much more comfortable the platform heel is on me.

My25Cents said...

Ro-lan-do! Ro-lan-do! Ro-lan-do!

(probably because it sounds sexier than "Elisa")

Love me a wedge--and hidden? All the better!

Seriously, where do you get these stories? Are you real? :)

Erica+Matson said...

NUMBER 2!

Steven and Wendy OBryant said...

definitely the rolando - worth the wait!

Haley said...

ohh the rolando for sure. definitely the cuter heel.

Kristen said...

Looks like I'm in the minority, but I say #1

Ashley said...

Rolando! =)

Kimberly W said...

Rolando!

stampinsundevil said...

Love, love the Rolando!!!

Shelb and Ry said...

I vote the rolando! worth the wait in my opinion... seriously, those are some beautiful shoes...

Stacy said...

elisa - prettier

Liz said...

What?! You returned them? Well at least you are getting another pair that hopefully you will enjoy just as much.

However, let's just think about the whole feeding the small starving children thing. Yeeees, you could have sent the money over to some African village. However, think of the salespeople at the store: THEY have families they need to feed. Think of the cleaning people, delivery truck people, stocking people, etc. that helped put those shoes on the shelf. And what about all the poor Chinese/Indian/Bangladesh people who actually put the shoes together? So either way, you are STILL helping the starving and needy. :)

PS: I can't really tell a difference between pair 1 or 2. I think both are gorgeous.

Morgan said...

Rolando. They are both gorgeous but the first one was a little on the pink side.

Tay said...

The Elisa is much classier in my opinion. It will NEVER go out of style. The platform and the shape of the toe on the Rolando makes it the trendier option.
And I am pretty sure the heel on the Elisa plus the fact that it is nude will make the leg look fabulous.
No need for the platform.
And I too am wanting a pair nudes... so flattering and versatile.

Nicole Howell said...

I have to say the Elisa it looks a bit classier to me sort of timeless and also a bit more feminine

Barb @ getupandplay said...

They are both gorgeous but the Rolando are hands down sexier!

Emma said...

I don't think I could walk in those! However, I prefer the Elisa.

Kristin and Mike Jenson said...

Rolando.. good things come to those who wait! And they are classics so you don't have to have them this season... they will always be "in."

Thx for some serious shoe envy...

Stephanie said...

The Rolando for sure!

Shannon said...

#2!!!

Randi A. said...

I prefer the Elisa ones. :) The dilemmas in your life... must be tough. ;)

Julie Thurgood Summerhays said...

Rolando for sure...

kristin said...

elisa - they are classier and timeless.

Amy said...

The rolando. Even though they are on back order, you WILL get them eventually and you'll be glad to not have compromised for one in stock you didn't like as much.

Ellie said...

go for the rolando because you'll order them and then forget about them for awhile and then remember and it will be like getting them multiple times.

Bryce and Brittany said...

#2 for sure. way sexy!

lime said...

Rolando!

paula said...

Rolando...it will be worth the wait.

eden said...

i'm a fan of the elisa. more feminine, delicate, perfect. but they're both beautiful.

dani said...

the rolando.
gorgeous.

Chad and Jordan Wilson said...

#2 for sure! So sexy!

megan said...

ooohh... pretty!! Rolando has my vote! I want some! :)

Jodi said...

I hate to be the buzz killer here, but you COULD use all that money to buy a bunch of clothes to send to the children in need...

Megan said...

Rolando!

A Warm Winter said...

The Elisa! Platforms are on their way out, but the style of the first one never will. Can't go wrong with a classic Loubie!

carey said...

#2. Worth the wait.

Cami said...

I vote the Rolando!

Kara Kimball said...

rolando is much more you. and they're fabulous.

Kristin said...

I vote the Elisa. It's very classic and never goes out of style.

dubya said...

#2 will totally be worth the wait!

Kailee Higgins said...

Rolando easy. True beauty always involves some kind of pain or patience.

Manda said...

ROLANDO!!

Jen said...

#1 :)

Betsy said...

Definitely the Rolando. They're hot!

Jennifer Bowman said...

Oh I would wait it out for the Rolando for sure!

nathalia said...

#1. Classic. But I agree with other posters that #2 seems to scream out YOU more!

rolando...very sexy

Cinzia In Italia said...

Definitely wait for the Rolando. It'll be worth the wait!

Emily said...

the rolando for sure. I usually think that the platform look gets out of hand and ridiculous (e.g. the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), but this platform is subtle and dang sexy. They'll be worth the wait.

Home Is Where the Hart Is said...

Definitely the Rolando! No question about it!!! AMAZING!!!

Martha said...

The Elisa. Classic.

Ricci said...

Rolando in your 20s-30s
Elisa in your 40s-50s
:)

Pieces of Us said...

the rolando no doubt.

Jessica :) said...

The Rolando, for sure. So sexy!

HOLLY FOWLER said...

2 for sure! Nat you would rock these shoes very well.

Noni said...

ROLANDO!! Very hot...its the way to go.

AngelaBeth said...

I don't think I need to cast my vote because everyone's already holding you to it but...ROLANDO.

Hidden platforms FOREVER.

Libby said...

#2 ! the first is pretty but the 2nd is very classy and modern!

Amy A. said...

You kinda left us hanging... What about the end to the story??? WHY did they guy buy you shoes?

And my vote if for number 1. :)

Lexi said...

rolando!

Em said...

ROLANDO! I LUUUURRRVE nude heels, I wish I was you right now!

Allison said...

Rrrrrrolando, no question. There's a reason they are backordered :).

Nichole said...

Go with the leggier. Actually - always going with the leggier, girl.

Eliza said...

I don't know the entire story behind the first pair of shoes but I kind of have a problem with you returning them. The gentlemen who bought you these shoes clearly bought them because he wanted you to have the shoes. By returning the shoes and taking cash you are not having the shoes he wanted you to have, and instead you are taking his money. Seeing as their is nothing wrong with the shoes its seems very low to return such a thoughtful gift and taking money instead. It seems to me that since you accepted the shoes you should keep them. This man may have done it to treat you to a special gift, not to give you money. If you can not return the shoes to this man, I would keep them for yourself. Returning them for money seems very low to me. This may sound mean, but I was actually very upset by your actions in this post.

Tiera said...

Rolando!

ashlee said...

Wait for the Rolando. I'm dying of envy. Do you think anyone would notice if I just spray painted the bottom a pair of shoes red . . . ?

Angenette said...

The elisa. Classic. Classy. Won't be so over next season.

Nicole London said...

ROLANDO! All good things are worth waiting for... and I'd say all things that gorgeous are worth waiting for as well!

ps-super jealous

Michele said...

The elisa, fo sho!

Audra said...

In response to Eliza-
I don't think it a big deal she returned them at all. I'm sure the guy would have bought her whatever pair of shoes she wanted. And what's the point of having an expensive pair of shoes you really won't wear when you could have a pair of nude pumps that I'm sure Nat will wear all the time?
Either way- its her business. If she was resourceful enough to get the shoes in the first place- power to ya sister. Have your sexy Nude Loubies! You'll need something for nice for Opening Night!

blair said...

Hey Eliza -

Don't be so jelly cat. Homeboy wanted to buy her some shoes - I bet he'd be pleased knowing that she is getting the pair she truly wants.

And puh-lease, Rolando all the way.

Love you, Nat.

Michelle Morse said...

Rolando for sure, love the hidden platform!

Minta said...

the elisa, it'll last you longer. So pretty you lucky girl!

Jeannie said...

either one. you can't lose. i guess i say #1. for that kind of scratch, i think the classic will give you many years of pleasure while maybe the platform style will come and go?

this from a girl who NEEDS the platform herself, but I don't think you do.

#1

kassie said...

The rolando for sure!
Louboutins are so worth the wait.

Shauna said...

just saw that weird comment from eliza. What the?

get a life people.

Cher said...

Hold out for the better- hidden platform is my vote! Be patient!

Sandra said...

Rolando, Rolando, Rolando,They just beautiful.

chanief said...

I'd go with the first, but either pair will look FABULOUS on you. Enjoy!!

Monica said...

#2. LOVE them!

Natalie. said...

Elisa. 100,000%. But honestly, what do I know? Before your hygiene post, I hadn't even shaved my legs in a year, let alone worn heals. (I'm now proud to report that I shave daily and love it.)

Rachel said...

I own the Rolando in nude and LOVE them. Seriously an investment purchase, but worth EVERY PENNY!!

Andy said...

Rolando is my gift to myself this year when I turn 40! I say the wait is worth it!

KJ said...

elisa. timeless.

Erin Marie said...

The Elisa. I wish I could have them. So you need to get them for me.

GingerLand said...

#1... the Rolandos are sexy, but the first are timeless. I shudder to think what we'll all look like with the platforms in my closet in a few years once the trend has run it's course (and I'm too old to wear platforms).

If you're spending this kind of money, get the classic pair.
