Retro Blue Shoes with My Merled Dress

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
Earrings: Swapped

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?

    Fabulous shoes! I love them with the tights and dress – and who’d have thought you could make the belt work too?! Karen x

  2. 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. ❤

  3. Those shoes are the best! I really like the dress too, very sassy. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, xo.

  4. 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!

  5. Hi! I love your blue shoes!!!!! So cool!!! x

    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!
