Not all fashion inspiration comes from the catwalk. After I stumbled across this wonderful picture of Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth, I was admiring both pairs of shoes, and it got me thinking about just how great two-tone monochrome shoes are. I have a couple of pairs myself, and there are so many great things about them. They go with everything. They’re eternally chic. They never go out of style. And they might make you want to break out into a tap dance.

One thought on “ monochrome dreams… ”

  1. I love the shoes you feature on your blog eg the Taylor Palm T-Bar & the Solovair Tassel loafers, and quite a few of the Ronnie Northampton shoes in the next post – but my problem is always that the shoes are never in my size! I’m currently wearing pair of mens size 42.5 (which is a 9 or 9.5 in British sizing) from Russell & Bromley which are great, and do look like women’s shoes, and I wear them with wide leg trousers and they suit me well – but when I look for girly sandals for summer, I’m really stuck! Does anyone else have this problem? Please let me know if you’re in the same boat by doing my survey on my facebook group – thanks – it’s Shoes by Dilys, https://www.facebook.com/groups/shoesbydilys/
