Dare to Bare With our Top Nude Shoes and Accessories

Beige doesn’t have to be blah — in fact, it’s one of the most versatile hues you can have in your wardrobe. You probably know the leg-lengthening magic of a great nude pump, but south of your ankles isn’t the only place you should consider going bare. We’ve brought together our favorite nude, beige and blush accessories to add a dose of neutral cool to your outfits. To keep from getting lost in a sea of beige, look for neutral pieces with great texture, such as quilting, embossing or different finishes. A nude pump can be glam thanks to a patent finish and adding a dash of black or shimmer brings beige from neutral to nighttime-ready.

Lauren Conrad’s Paper Crown Pops Up at the Grove

Paper Crown Spring 2015

€œWe don€™t have any Paper Crown locations so this was really exciting for us and it€™s the first time we€™ve been able to take our entire collection into a retail space,€ Conrad told WWD. €œWe thought it made sense to do a Valentine€™s pop-up. The collection is very girly and romantic.€

The pop-up shop will set up shop at the Grove’s Grand Lobby (which recently was home to a pop-up for Los Angeles-based leather goods company Parabellum) and be open from February 13 through the weekend.

Spanning about 1,000 square feet, the shop will play host to Paper Crown’s dresses, tops and skirts, some of which feature prints from Anna Bond’s Rifle Paper Co. And in a double dose of meta, some of the pieces from Rifle Paper Co., such as iPhone cases, cards and notebooks, will feature Paper Crown dresses in their graphics. Paper Crown teamed with Bond for three different prints, which found their way onto Conrad’s signature maxis, feminine flowy tops and more.

The Grove pop-up is the brick-and-mortar retail venture for Paper Crown, though Conrad stated that a more permanent store would definitely be on the horizon for her growing brand.
