A Reader's Request Answered - Hidden Platform Pumps

This Reader's Request was submitted via Twitter. Miss @curlyfro is on the hunt for a beige/taupe, hidden platform pump with closed toe under $150. I took to the internet and here's what I found...

Clockwise from top left:
Botkins by ALDO - $75.50
Lilo by N.Y.L.A. - $99.95
Heelsup by Nine West - $99.00
Fantasha by Steve Madden - $99.95

Here's the thing to remember about 'taupe' shoes: It means something different to different brands/designers. As you may notice, all of the shoes I found are different shades of taupe. If you're looking to match an outfit, determining the shade you need is fairly simple. However, if you're looking for a neutral shoe that elongates the leg, find the "taupe" that matches your complexion the most (as mentioned here).

I think the "Heelsup" by Nine West may be my personal favorite. What do you think?

Yeah I'm with you. I'm kind of in love with the Nine West heels myself. I wish they made the "nude" shoes in deeper shades so they'd truly be a good nude for my skintone.
