It’s Ruby Shoesday, everyone! It’s also… WINTER! Yes, AGAIN. Remember that time I got to wear a trench-coat? That day was “Spring”. We skipped summer altogether, and now we’ve come right back round to winter: it actually started SNOWING just as I finished taking these photos, and I had to go and put on a pair of opaque tights. So much for transitional dressing! I’m now sitting here contemplating adding a cardi over the top, because the sleeves on this dress are too short for winter-in-spring weather. Gah.
Anyway, as fascinating as it is to talk about the weather, let’s get on to the important business of SHOES. I decided to use today’s Ruby Shoesday Challenge as an opportunity to “rescue” another pair of shoes in my own Shoe Challenge. I bought these shoes in Marshalls when I was in the in the States last year, and the name on the sole is “Style&Co”, if that means anything to anyone! Naturally I loved them because they combine FOUR of my favourite things in shoes: red uppers, bows, stripes AND polka dots (although, admittedly, no one can actually see the polka dots while I’m wearing them). Despite this, I hardly ever wear them, although I suspect the Ruby Tuesdays challenge is about to change that!
Remember, if you’re participating in Ruby Shoesdays, Caroline has set up a Flickr group which you can post your images to. And if you’re participating in the Shoeper Shoe Challenge, you’ll find my shiny new Flickr group here, so feel free to join and post your Shoe Challenge shots!
Love this dress so much – want one please?!
Yup, definitely a ruby shoesday success – full marks Amber (plus bonus points for remembering – I was so very sure I wuold be the only one!). 😀

I was looking forward to it – any excuse to get out some red shoes!
Style & Co is an in-house brand of Macy’s department stores in the US, I have a couple of their things!
Ah, I didn’t know that! They were super-cheap at Marshalls – like, less than $20 cheap, so obviously I couldn’t just leave them there 🙂
I wish I had enough red shoes to participate. I have a red pair I wear regularly at work. I have 3 other red pairs (mule slides, patent espadrille heels, and a nautical heel) that are all unwearable until Boston weather is tolerable again. Even if I found a way to wear the nautical ones @ work, I’d be just switching between 2 pairs every week.
Ah, but this is the whole point, though – you’re forced to get creative and come up with different ways to wear the same shoes all the time. You should join in 🙂
Lovely photos, lovely dress, lovely face! But… oh dear, sorry, I want your shoooooes! They are
a m a z i n g!!!!!!! Good choice! (Uh… very sorry for the snow… here it stopped some days ago…)

I’m so jealous… It actually stopped a few weeks ago here, but then it started up again and just hasn’t stopped. I’m guessing the barbeque my mother-in-law was planning for Easter won’t be happening now 🙁
Really beautiful pictures!
oddly enough i wore red shoes for the last 4 or 5 days and forgot and wore black ones today…by the way those shoes are super cute and should be worn more often than even ruby shoesday when your snow disappears 🙂
Thanks – I’m definitely planning on wearing them more often, although the snow has kinda thrown a spanner in the works for now!
Aww. Too sweet. The only pairs of red shoes I own were my mother’s from the 80’s. They really are quite cute, a with a heel and this funny embellishment on the front with a little gold star.
