Shoes I just purchased on Zappos

I know this is going to be somewhat out of character for my style but I really think these are cute...at least in the picture. I wanted a shoe that sort of has the converse black and white look but I wanted a little bit of a heel and something a little more "funky...playful?" Anway. I just ordered them and hope they will look good with skinnies and my striped tops etc. Can't envision wearing them with a skirt or dress right now. Opinions?

    I think they're cute. I can imagine them with capri leggings and a denim skirt.

    Funky and playful, indeed! I think these would look great with pants and clamdiggers, but like you said I can't see them with a skirt.

    Thanks KellyGirl and Emily! They are Dansko "veda" and come in all kinds of colors and prints but this is the one that really appealed to me. Good idea with a denim skirt I hadn't thought of that! I don't own any clam diggers.

    I like the idea of these with a casual skirt - denim, corduroy...they would all work well with this style of shoe :) and of course, jeans. Even shorts/capri pants if you wear them during the summer.

    Thanks Kirti! They con't look too daft to you then! That is good to know.

    Converse with heels! GOOD idea that I'd get behind in a minute! I also like the idea of black&white for these --- for some reason I'd always seen B&W in sneakers and gearish, but these have a far more sophisticated, ever-so-slightly ironic vibe that I adore.

    oh slippery slope Merideth...I saw that comment, don't own clamdiggers..he he...now I bet the bells are ringing..need need need...YLF did that to me! I would never have had leopard wedges without YLF!

    Cute choice, Meredith!

    These will look fab with your new skinnies Meredith!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    @ManidipaM,
    I know these are slightly out of character for my "dignified" nature *grin* but I am fostering my playful side. I thought if I chose an edgy silhouette and kept it with the classic color scheme it would look cute but still not go to far outside my style!
    @Jayne,
    Ah.....a slippery slope indeed. I must check out what exactly clam diggers are. If they are the ones that hit directly below the knee I can probably "do" the look, but if they calf length (is that capris?) then I wouldn't bother. In any case, knee or right below knee in a cute color like blue would look pretty cute with them!
    @Alicat,
    Thanks! I am so glad you like them.

    Those are cute! I agree that it's a slippery slope! :-) A few months ago I would have never even thought of buying Converse and now they are one of my favorites!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    @Shannon,
    The skinnies were the first thing I thought of pairing them with!
    @Jem,
    I actually used to own a pair of converse all star low tops in a lovely linen shade They were a little large on me but I adored them and they were identical to a pair owned by my then boyfriend/ now husband.

    Those are cute! Wow, your fashion is really evolving fast, it seems like!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    @Scarlet,
    I agree that I am definitely taking a few more risks color and pattern wise and of course skinnies are my new thing! I never realized that dressing could actually be fun. I always found it such a chore! Since I joined YLF I really enjoy seeing what other people style and copying the pictures and then planning which of the looks I would like to incorporate into my wardrobe. The planning is helping keep the impulse shopping urge in check!

  • lynne replied 8 years ago

    Please please post pictures when you get them. I bought a pair in blue last year and love how comfortable they are. I want to see how others have styled them.

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Lynne,
    I hope to have them this afternoon and if I do, I will post a pic tomorrow am!

  • bj1111 replied 8 years ago

    ooo...the color scheme is classic, but the style with the heel does add a touch of whimsy.

  • morethanbeige replied 8 years ago

    I must say I think they are cute too.
