outfit du jour: living proof

I've had these yellow shoes for a few months now. I spotted them in a thrift store when I first began obsessing over wedges and had to have them. Now, I'm having a hard time deciding how I feel about them. We kind of have a love-hate relationship. What do you think?

By the way, I haven't had much time to return comments the past few days or to comment and thank everyone for participating in Thursdays are for Thrifters (it's not too late to submit your looks and finds), but I hope to catch up this weekend.

  1. Those shoes are AWESOME. If they are a size 7 I'll happily take them off your hands :)

    I have a similar (but not as perfect) pair of yellow patent wedges (seen here)

    and I get a lot of wear out of them. Really, yellow is a neutral when it comes to shoes.

  3. I love them! For me, it's a great place for me to wear yellow -- as far away from my face as possible :-)

  4. I think the shoes are a keeper! Definitely a statement piece when worn with skinny jeans to give that outfit a POP of color. I really wish I can find nice shoes out there especially a pair of combat boots for a good price!

  23. I can understand why you bought those shoes. But I had a pair of bright yellow flats a year ago and finally took them BACK to the thrift because I couldn't figure out how to style them.
