It's Friday! Time for more Mail Bombs

"Please Mister Postman, look and see (Oh yeah)/ If there's a letter in your bag for me/(Please, Please Mister Postman)/Why's it takin' such a long time (Oh yeah)/For me to hear from that boy of mine."--The Marvelettes, 'Mr. Postman'

Hey Guys,
It's Friday, which means that it's time for more mail bombs!!

They're really rolling in! Let's get to it:
Tamika from Chi Town asks:
"Is it possible to find out about Halle Berry’s outfit and shoes from this pic?"

Well, Tamika, she’s wearing a sheer Dolce & Gabbana Dress with this $596 pair...

..of Christian Louboutin Mary Jane Pumps.
Next, Fashion Bomber Cynthia wrote me in distress saying:
"Help me please. I have an issue with the color of a shoe to go with this Victoria's Secret suit....

...I don't want to do a Navy shoe cause I thought that would be too much, and I would be stuck with a pair of shoes that I can only wear with one outfit."
Great question. You definitely can't wear your go-to black shoes with this suit, but that doesn't mean that navy shoes are your only option! Neutral colors like light brown, khaki, and beige work well with navy, and are still versatile enough to match most items in your wardrobe. If you're feeling saucier, an animal print or metallic shoe could work as well. Try these:

Top Row: Enzo Angiolini 'Maylie' Pump, $89, www.nordstrom.com; Lucero Pumps, $79, www.ninewest.com.
Bottom Row: Mia Venice Shoes, $66 and Dolce Vita Putty Patent Pumps, $125, zappos.com
Good Luck!
Next up reader Lamiachulita asks:
"I have two college graduations coming up. the first at the end of May, and the other (Grad school) in June. Any ideas on what to wear? "
I'd say go for a nice yet casual look. Stick with solid colors in flattering, simple cuts. As it's a family event, I'd err on the conservative side...but if you decide to go strapless or wear spaghetti straps, definitely have a cardigan or jacket handy to cover your shoulders. I think the following dresses, paired with a cardigan, would look perfectly pretty for a spring or summer graduation:

Top Row: Donna Morgan Empire Waist Sundress, $98, www.nordstrom.com; Wai Ching Soleil Dress, $200, www.starsandinfinitedarkness.com.
Bottom Row: Cotton Embroidered Dress, $148, www.bananarepublic.com; Seven Hills Dress, $98, www.anthropologie.com.
Next up, reader Joy asks:
"I know I dress fly, but usually from the ankle up. I'm a sista who has a different foot problem than yours: I have humongous feet. I wear a size 11(maybe 11 1/2?), and I wanted to know if you knew of any stores or designers that cater to women of fashion with my condition."
Well, Joy, I think your best bet for size 11 shoes would be to look online. Stores like Zappos and Steve Madden carry size 11 shoes in very fashionable styles. A few of my Fashion Bomb certified finds:

Top Row: Lusta Natural Shoes, $100, www.stevemadden.com; Charles by Charles David Minx Pumps, $112, zappos.com
Bottom Row: Bunni Peep Toe Wedges, $70, www.stevemadden.com; Oh!Deer Bette Pumps, $111, zappos.com
And lastly, reader Loran would like to know:
"I wanted to know if you had any info on the dress worn by the young lady in the Louboutin post...

...I am looking for something like it to wear to a wedding for a fashionable yet comfortable look! I would appreciate it if you could find out the designer or where it came from. Im in Atlanta and absolutely love the look--its getting warm here already."
Kela responded, "I got it from my favorite store, Zara.... but I bought it during their twice annual sale season back in January... but I'm sure they'll have something else up her alley and right now they have a lot of different shift dresses similar to the one I was wearing."
There ya go!
Well, that does it for mail bombs today. If I didn't answer your question this time, don't despair. Trust, I'm working on it for ya!
Have great weekends!
Smootches!
