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?
