Ruby Slippers

I’m lovin’ my ruby red shoes that I bought at Drizzle and Shine in Seattle. Red is my favourite colour for shoes. These ones are made in USA, with wedge heels, peep toes and hearts. (OKA-B Microplast technology provides a lightweight, flexible shoe that remains comfortable and durable.)

The weather is wonderful, feels more like spring and summer as we are already halfway through October. With temperatures in the 20s °C (70s °F) I didn’t even need a cardigan or jacket.

We were invited to a wedding in London, where I led fun dances at the receptions, such as the Canadian Barn Dance, Gay Gordons, Hava Nagila, Cumberland Reel (Scottish) and Waves of Tory (Irish).

      Thanks so much Jean! I love everything I bought at your store, looking forward to coming again. There are few more things I wish I had bought, but I know there’ll be more beautiful styles and things to choose on my next visit. If you still have a size small in this top, please save it for me. Love the lace detail and the tie dyed design! Thanks! ❤

    Oh my gosh Carmen you look amazing. Nothing add more POP to a black and white outfit than a few red accessories. Oh those shoes are sooooo cute.

      Thank you so much Bri! First time wearing this dress with a red belt and red shoes, I’ve always worn a black belt and black shoes with it. This looks so much better! The shoes are so comfy even with wedges. Soft and flexible. The company make flats too. 🙂

      Thank you so much Margot! It’s actually a dress that looks like a skirt and top, but it is one piece. Cold days will soon be on the way but until then, I shall enjoy these lovely, warm days! 🙂

      Thanks so much Josep-Maria! It is one of my favourite dresses (it is one piece) that I bought in Costa Rica. My first time wearing it with a red belt (which belonged to my dear mother) as I always have worn a black belt as you can see in “Down by the River.”

      Oh yes!! I’m enjoying every minute of this extended summer, 25°C today! Sitting in my summer place as we speak, which I will write about next, feeling the warm breeze as sunshine is dancing in the leaves. Thank you very much Ute! The shoes are vegan, as you might have guessed, a very soft and comfortable vinyl, great quality.

      Have a warm evening!
