Dressing Slimmer for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: For the Shoes
Quote of the day: “Aging is out of your control. How you handle it though, is in your hands.” Diane von Fustenberg
Thanks to a wonderful reader’s suggestion (thanks Jeannine), I tried to prove or disprove some of the points we’ve been told about dressing slimmer. I started with the top portion of our body in the last post (here). Today’s feature is the shoe—I wanted to evaluate the pointed toe vs. the rounded toe! Everything else in our outfits are exactly the same and I tried very hard to compare the same poses in our pictures (easier said than done)! I was trying to show the theory with the identical color of shoes. However, what I noticed is that for Nancy & mom’s illustrations, both of their rounded toes are flats and their pointed toes are heels (it’s just what they had in their closet). So because of that, I used heels for both of mine which is why mine aren’t exactly the same color (and the rounded toe shoes are actually a higher heel for mine). So tell me, what do you think?
50’s Outfit: This is one of my favorite belts, but I had to put velcro under the wood pieces because the first time I wore it, it kept popping open and off!!
60’s Outfit: Nancy’s nail polish matches her outfit—now that’s impressive!
