Patent nude heels :: Joanne Mercer $140 currently on sale for $120

A pair of patent nude heels is definitely a wardrobe must but I only bought my first pair last year. I ended up wearing them to death, they went with nearly every outfit. They were a $30 pair from Barkins and for $30 I think I got my fair share of wears out of them but the heel did wear away quickly and they ended up starting to tear along the lining and I eventually had to throw them out.

I decided to invest in a good pair this time round and straight away thought of Joanne Mercer. I am not the kind of person who likes to break in shoes, if I get really bad blisters the first couple of times I wear a pair of shoes they usually get thrown to the back of the wardrobe. I have a couple of pairs of Joanne Mercer shoes and they are generally pretty comfortable from the get go and have lasted me really well.

I have only worn this pair around the house but am putting them to the test at my friends engagement party next week. I feel that they have a pretty sensible heel for this kitten heel loving girl so am not too worried about getting sore feet. I will make sure I report back if I have any issues with these shoes but knowing how versatile nude shoes are and our reliable I have found this brand in the past I am pretty convinced this was a good investment.

What brand do you think of when you think of good quality shoes?


  1. I love nude shoes. I have two pairs. One sky high pair and a more kitten heel style. The sky high ones are Tony Bianco and the lower heel is Windsor Smith. I don't think I've bought Joanne Mercer shoes before. I do love Tony Bianco :)

    P.S. I will try and organise my wardrobe for your show me your wardrobe posts. And I will try and send something stripy too. x

  2. Definitely a good buy! I also wear my nude pumps to death and my current pair's actually from Betts which are surprisingly super comfortable. But my general go to brands for good quality shoes that can be worn to death are Country Road for pumps and boots, Witchery for ballet flats and Wittner for heels.

  3. Nude shoes are a definate must! I bought a pair last year and absolutely love them! Unfortunatley I'm not big on brands - im just to frugal to even consider spending over $50 on a pair of heels - its silly I know but I just can't help it! However if I must mention brands, I recently bought a pair of second hand practically never worn Wittners recently and they are extreazmly comfortable and look to be very well made.x

  4. These are really cute. I've never owned a pair of nude heels, I'm not sure if they would suit me, though I generally like them on other people. I also never really find the situation to wear heels, even the pairs I do have. This may have to do with not doing a whole lot of things that involved getting dressed up– and heels are incredibly impractical in a lab.

  5. i've never had dramas with Diana Ferrari - reasonable price, great quality and reliable sizes.

  6. Ooh I love the color of the pants with the nude heels! Great pair!

  7. My wedding shoes were Joanne mercer and I totally agree, I didn't get blisters at all and i wore the heels the whole day at my wedding in grass and gravel and wooden bridges without getting sore feet! Such as win.

    I'm currently trying to break in a pair of Ms Moos and EVERY time I wear them I get terrible blisters. It's killing me.

  8. A nude heel is definitely a good buy :) I hope you have a great time at your friends engagement party! :)

    Love, Rachel

  9. I love nude heels. They look so classy and work with just about everything! I can't wear heels (bad ankle) but I love nude flats. I love the way they lengthen my legs - which at 5'2 I need!

    the web the easiest factor to keep in mind of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst people think
    about worries that they plainly do not understand

    also outlined out the entire thing with no need side effect ,
    other folks could take a signal. Will likely be
    again to get more. Thank you
