Reader Request! What to wear with White Pumps...

Hello, I love your blog! I just discovered it yesterday and have been on it all day today and I need your help. I bought these white snake-print stiletto pumps from VS ( and I love them, but am almost regretting the purchase because I can't seem to figure out what to wear it with without it looking too 80s. Could you please lead me in the right direction on what I could wear these heels with, preferably something polished with a little edge? Thanks much!!

OK so I feel your pain! I too have been in a similar white pump predicament arghghghgh. You want to avoid looking too matchy matchy (ie white pumps with the white belt and white purse which inadvertently puts you smack dab as a Don't in Glamour) and yet you dont want to be too outside the box (ie white pumps, snakeskin pants and some hot pink tube top once again leading you to be a Don't). Its hard to find that balance between "No really, I tried way to hard" to "Oh this old outfit, it's ok I guess...but groundbreaking you say? wow, thanks!". That being said, here are a few option provided below. What yalls think? Could I have spiced it up a bit? Is it perfection or yeah not so much?
