Outfit Search 2

A few weeks ago I shared my angst-riddled journey to find an outfit to wear to a special occasion. The bugger was to build the outfit around a tricky pair of shoes. As I mentioned, I needed to wear the same beautiful, complicated shoes to another formal occasion with (possibly) some of the same people, and therefore needed a re-invention of the old theme.

I should have enlisted Shoewawa. The creators regularly run "Play the Shoe Stylist" activities, where readers put together outfits to go with a feisty pair of shoes. I could have used their help!

Well, now the dinner cruise has come and gone, but I managed to put together something new and incorporate a little color this time.

As promised, my outfit:

Ah, see, as I explained to my father, the cruise consisted of many theatre colleagues and I was going for something a little crazy and funky. If I'd worn black tights or sheer hose, it would have been terribly formal for the event.

At least I wasn't the one in the white fedora.
Although I do look cute in hats...

Now I'm not going to be able to sleep at night, thinking about what you can wear with those shoes! BTW, that dress is very flattering.

I am totally not a hat person, but maybe you could do something with a hat, black & white to balance the shoes. Or a girly tux look? Aaaa ...

LOL a girly tux look would be -so- hot! I'd have a dilemma on my hands about wearing the shoes just to cover them with pants, but I bet something could be worked out... capris, or something...
Great idea!

How about a tux with knee-length pants? (I was blogging about bermuda pseudts today.) :D

If it's not too much of a hassle, send me some pics and stuff! I'd totally publish them and even try them irl! I've never owned knee-length before...

I'm looking, but I'm not super speedy. My phone has a decent camera, though ...
