Yes, another update on the ruffle pump. I waited and thought and contemplated and finally decided to purchase the Newport News nude ruffle pumps. They finally arrived today. Guess what? They are not nude. They are pink.
Pink? I cannot lie. I am disappointed. I mean, it’s a pale pink, but still. I went back and looked at the website, then looked at the catalog that came with my order. The shoes look very pink in the catalog (which I did not see until today, of course) but not pink at all online. The color is called Powder Puff. That does not say pink to me.
I tried them on and walked around a bit. The listing says 3.5 inch heels, but they feel much taller than that. It might have something to do with the platform, but I felt crazy tall walking in them. After a while I decided I still really like the style, and it is a light enough pink color that I think I will keep them.
Also, they are marked down another $10 from what I paid, and are only $39. That is a great deal. If you sign up for the Newport News mailing list you get a 15% off coupon code.

If you like other items from Newport News, try searching for coupon codes that offer free shipping over $50.
Just be warned. They are pink, not nude.
