This outfit is a tried-and-true one that I've worn, oh, plenty of times in the past couple of years. In fact it was this dress that inspired my paean to polyester. Last summer I paired it with a tan belt and these same shoes. What can I say, I love a good day dress.
I usually wear navy tights with this dress but I wanted to make these shoes pop a bit more, so I tried maroon. Not sure it worked, but I'm never satisfied doing the same thing over and over — I always have to tweak. My love for these shoes runs deep — they are easily a half-size too small for me, but I just can't part with them because I think they're perfect. I got them at a church bag sale for about 20 cents.
