Silver Shoes for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: With Black Pants
Quote of the day: “A dream is just a dream. A goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline.” Harvey MacKay
Since I started noticing silver shoes on many other bloggers begining this winter, I thought it’d be a fun project for the three of us. I styled the silver shoes with white jeans in the last post (here-where you can also see the shoes up close & personal), and now I paired the same shoes with just the opposite-black pants. Even though the bottom half is black for each of us, they are still somewhat different. My black pants are faux leather in the front, Nancy’s wearing her black trousers, and mom put on black jeans. I think the silver shoes create a fun contrast against the black pants as opposed to the white jeans, where they blended in.
50’s Outfit: My silver cat earrings were actually quite tarnished when I pulled them out. So I used Tarnex on them with amazing results. What exactly is in that stuff?
60’s Outfit: Since Nancy’s outfit was black & white, we added colorful accessories for a pop of color. I know you’ve seen these necklaces quite a bit, but I think they add a bit of whimsy to many outfits. We originally showcased the gold necklace like the one Nancy is wearing in the fringe series here.

70’s Outfit: Mom bought this kimono? wrap? shawl? just recently. I thought that the burned out fabric look of the wrap complimented the openness of the crochet style of her shoes. It looks very coordinated don’t you think?.
