OOTD 10.17.09: The Versatile {Cranberry} Valda

If you have any reservations about this cute little flat in this raspberry hue, let me just tell you I've found it goes with soooo much in my closet.  I love it with browns, camel, grays, and even J Crew's amber and mustard-y colors.  Would be great with navy too.  Colorful shoes or handbags are the easiest way I know to add a little splash of interest to my usual basic everyday jeans/white tee shirt/cardi or jacket combo.

the Valdas with an assortment of J Crew sweaters

And I wore them for the first time last night for a casual dinner and football-watching with friends:

Target pointelle tie cardi in brown, ON tee in white, Vigoss jeans, Nordstrom pashmina, Valda flats

I also ran out this morning to buy another fabbie Target shoe that I decided I just had to have.  Review coming soon!



  1. I love those shoes! I've been using some of the same color combos as well. I'm loving gray and an acid yellow and magenta. I may have to see if my local Targay has those.

  2. I love how you've paired them with a variety of interesting colors-- so versatile and chic!

    I can't wait for your next shoe review! You always make my day.

  3. I wore that flats today too! please visit my blog to see my outfit with those flats when you get a chance ^^

  4. okaaayyy-----now i must have them! i was wondering what i would wear with these shoes, and you must have read my mind! thank you!! love them with the brown, pink pashmina, did you buy that this year? im looking for some other pashmina alternatives, the ones are nordstrom are still pricey........anyhoo! thank you for this post, and can't wait to see your other Target Shoe find!!!!

  5. oh, p.s.--------love that blue/white sweater you have up in the right hand corner of your picture!

  6. mrs.a - I can't vouch for these as I haven't ordered, but I've seen some really pretty scarves at the animal rescue site shop of all places. Here is the link for some alpaca scarves that look a lot like the classic pashmina and are under $25: Also keep checking with Target, ON and ATL. They seem to get great scarves in too and really reasonable prices. The pink pashmina is from maybe 3 years ago. That checked sweater is gray/white from J Crew last year :)
    Daily Lily - adorable outfit you put together! I love the Speedy :)
    Katherine - thanks so much!
    Dishy Decorator - thanks. Love that color combo - I know as a decorator you know your colors! :)

  7. Good point on mixing w/mustard. I like the outfit :-)

  8. love the outfits! can't wait to see the newest fab shoe!

  9. I have those shoes in black. I wish that I would have bought them in the cranberry though. I was being safe because I thought that I would not be able to pair them with anything..but you proved that you can! Thanks for the inspiration!
