Red Sandals 3 (Contrasting)

Red Sandals for the 50's, 60's, & 70's.

Red Sandals for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: As a Contrasting Item

Quote of the day: “Talk about your blessings more than you talk about your problems.” Vanessa Ramkissoon

For this post, I’m taking those wonderful, versatile red sandals and combining them with different colors from the color wheel—any color would work, really!!  I tried to show a variety of colors with the three of us—blue, purple & green which are all in the cool colors array.  But even the warm colors of yellow & orange would look superb (maybe I need two more models?)!! And interestingly enough, as I study the three of us together, it looks like I united the contrasting color with white!  You can view these same red sandals used as a pop of color item (here) and as a matching item (here).

50’s Red Sandals: This “bracelet” is actually a watch—the facing opens and voila—there’s a watch under it! Needless to say it hasn’t worked in ages, but I love the design so I wear it as a bracelet!

60’s Red Sandals: For Nancy’s combination, I used her new necklace as inspiration.  Your jewelry can be more than just decorative…it can be the creativity behind your color combinations when putting an outfit together!

70’s Red Sandals: Mom’s shirt was made with Belgium lace at the top portion around the neck, beautiful!  For her bracelet, we came up with the idea to wrap a red cord necklace around her wrist a couple times! It looks great as a bracelet don’t you think?

And last, but not least, here are some heeled red sandals…cute, huh?

  • Kathleen McDermott

    All your tops are very pretty, as are all the red sandals. Red sandals or shoes are a great pop of color with so many outfits, colors and patterns. Not sure why, but they seem to be the most versatile of colorful shoes. I have many, of course!

      Well funny you say that Kathleen, because I just bought some new red sandals and they came in the mail today! I’m wearing them around the house to make sure they are comfy–and so far, so good! I will admit though that I’m getting better about not buying as many multiples. I actually bought these to replace an older pair that were not comfortable!! In fact, I really need a winterish pair of red shoes too—but I think I’ll wait! 🙂

    Jodie, your blouse is exquisite and looks wonderful on you. I really like the whole outfit.

    • Thanks Aunt Nancy! It is one of my favorite blouses because it’s so different!!

  • oohhh lala ! you ladies are looking lovely !

  • Wow, that bracelet watch is brilliant, and so 007, haha. I love the red sandal looks. :)/Madison

  • Jean Ann

    You all look great! I never would have paired these colors but they are great together!

  • Okay, you have totally inspired and convinced me that I need a pair of red sandals in my wardrobe! Good thing there is a DSW right down the road!

    • You are too funny!!! And you’re moved in, right? So you can start accumulating again!! I think red sandals are a great first purchase for LV!!

  • MaryAnne

    Wow another wonderful post. All three of you lovely ladies look beautiful. I love Nancy’s necklace. Goes with everything. It is fun to step out of the box with color that you wouldn’t think of putting together. Mom’s lime green slacks and the red just pops. And the red cord necklace works great as a bracelet!

    • Thanks MaryAnne for the wonderful compliments!! I have to admit, I probably wouldn’t have tried these combinations, if I weren’t doing this blog…but I like them—especially the green & red!
