    I found a really, really cute pencil skirt tonight-it's navy blue with little white polka dots on it and red stitching. Very 1940's. What color shoes would one wear with this? Black or navy blue?

    Navy blue would match better, but I'd wear red shoes, but I'd wear a dark color on top so it's not too much color & not look costumey.

    A nude shoe would be appropriate too, but I like the red idea best.

    It looks a lot cuter on a person.

    What about this pair? Or do they look too cheap/wedding like?

    They are only $23 online at Target. I wonder if they have them at the store?

    Is it a true navy blue, or could you get away with wearing black pumps? I

    I would do nude or even a yellow. Sometimes things can get too matchy and it looks good to throw in another pop of color.

    If you are going red, get something 'new looking'.. to put a 'modern twist' on the look:2cents:

    I'm crazy for the 'platform bottom' styles of pumps:

    Those are beautiful, czacza! I was wondering if you would weigh in-you are the shoe goddess!

    I found a pair on eBay that are a great price and super cute. The auction ends tomorrow afternoon so I'm going to sneak in last minute with a bid-there are no bids so far. I'll post a picture if I win-I don't want anyone here to see how cute they are and outbid me! :whistle:

    Won the auction! The shoes are mine for $15.80, including shipping. Not bad! Now, what kind of top? I'm thinking just a white tank top?
