a very sweet couple.
And, yes, I wore red shoes.
I think the last pair of red shoes I wore were Buster Brown’s.
I found the little black dress on sale at Christmastime when I wasn’t really looking for a dress. The price was so right I brought it home.
But it needed something.
My sweet, beautiful and fun-loving friend, Susan told me to stop by and she would see if she had some accessories to help me dress-up the outfit.
Just for fun, I brought along a dress my niece loaned me. A sleek, long black dress with boa feathers that had to be the most amusing dress I have ever tried on. Yes, I looked like Cruella Deville and left tiny feathers whenever I moved about, but oh, what FUN!
After our laugh (and Susan’s suggestion I not wear the boa dress to Bible study) she shared a beautiful silk scarf that was perfect with the dress. So I didn’t have to continually fidget to keep the scarf in place, I tied a knot in front.
We agreed a long, silver necklace with chunky beads that her son bought for her worked too.
My sister, my sister-in-law and my daughter, Erin all suggested red shoes.
So off to DSW and guess what I found on the clearance shelf.
Not just a pair of red shoes but also, at 70% off, a red bag.
Still hesitant, I chatted with the lady at the register as I paid for the red shoes and a sensible pair of black patent leather shoes . This older, soft-spoken, reserved lady told me,
“Wear the red ones. There’s nothing like red shoes.”
And to perk up my dashing husband’s suit, Abbey and I found a new red tie for him!
