My gray merled dress is ba-aaack! The cost-per-wear must be so low by now–I’ve worn this a lot! But I still like it. I can style it with bright tights, fun scarves, or, as I did on this occasion, fancy blue shoes.
Dress: TJ Maxx
Tights: Fred Meyer’s
Shoes: Crown Vintage via DSW
I couldn’t resist these shoes. They’re faux leather, affordable, a great color, and have a fun retro vibe. The shoes may be 40s-inspired, but the rest of my outfit is current. The yellow belt was a fun touch–and it’s a complementary color to the shoes.
I think I’ll be able to wear these with lots of things–from pants to skirts, and on all sorts of occasions. Probably not for sweeping the lawn, but the broom did make a nice prop!
Are you drawn to colorful shoes or do you stick with neutrals?
I’m joining Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet. Check out what everyone else is wearing!

Lovely! ❤ 😀
Fabulous shoes! I love them with the tights and dress – and who’d have thought you could make the belt work too?! Karen x
Thank you. Yes, I just adored these shoes when I saw them and I’m determined to restyle them many ways.
I love this dress and was hoping I might grab it in the clothing exchange if you ever part with it! I like how you combine new looks with retro style shoes.
As for colourful shoes–LOVE THEM! I have several pairs of red shoes, burgundy, yellow and pink. I need a pair of blue shoes like yours! Adds a great pop of colour to your outfit and looks fun. I was so impressed with your gorgeous shoe collection and how neatly you have them organized on lovely shelves. ❤
I love red shoes too, and I have green, pink, striped and floral ones as well! (As you probably saw) Don’t worry. I’ll save the dress for you 🙂
Those shoes are the best! I really like the dress too, very sassy. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, xo.
Thanks Patti! I always look forward to joining Visible Monday!
These old tried and true dresses are the best. You styled it with great creativity, but I can see it worn simply as a tunic over jeans, as well. Just bought a new pair of blue sandals myself. Your shoes are fantastic!
Great tip! I can see this working over jeans too. What a great way to transform the look.
Hi! I love your blue shoes!!!!! So cool!!! x
Thanks, and thanks for stopping by!
where do you buy all these clothes? wow!!! 👍💙😊
Ha! I’m a collector 😉 It’s hard to get rid of things, even if I’ve had them for a long time.
And that’s how to do retro! They are sweet, and just right with your very modern pieces. Wear them with pleasure! And of course, I LOVE your hair!
Thank you! I feel like one retro piece keep an outfit from looking costume-y. As for my hair, I keep going shorter and redder. I’m sure you approve 😉
