As I was getting ready to go out on Saturday night I really wanted to wear these fabulous sandals (which my boyfriend calls stripper shoes – I don’t care, I’ll wear them anyway) and realized that I had only one garment that really went with them – a dress I’d worn last Saturday! How did this happen? So, inspired by Manolo The Shoeblogger’s build the outfit contests I am going to start from the ground up for a change and make a few things to go with the shoes.
My thought is that these are pretty sexy shoes and need something clean, simple and not too bare to keep me from looking like a working girl. What I’ve come up with so far:
Item #1 – White shirtdress: The first one is perfect, the second needs to be a few inches longer
A great pattern to start with is this Threads for Simplicity pattern that I had forgotten was in my stash!
Item #2 – White knee length skirt: LOVE!
Item #3 – White skinny bermuda shorts: LOVE! A definite must-have!
Item #4 – Sundress: the first one would be perfect if it were a few inches longer, the second one has a nice shape but I wouldn’t add the girly details
This forgotten New Look pattern is the perfect base for a sundress! I’ll probably use the strapless version and add tiny spaghetti straps for wearing ease.
Another style that I think is absolutely perfect for these shoes is this Hot Patterns Plain & Simple Iconic Shirtdress. I think this would look fabulous in red because a clingy white knit dress is certainly out of the question!
What do you think? I welcome any and all input!
