Green pumps with a white denim pencil skirt?

Qupid Penelope pumps green 2

I’m trying to think of some outfit ideas for the green Qupid Penelope pumps I bought last week. I’m thinking a white denim pencil skirt with a green silk blouse. Or a white denim pencil skirt with a white cotton shirt and a green blazer. I definitely want to try something with a white denim pencil skirt; but I do not have such a skirt in my closet. So I am trying to see if I can find one that is affordable.Qupid Penelope pumps green 1
The green pumps from Qupid are the same style as the cobalt blue pumps featured in How to wear blue high heel pumps. They are cheap faux leather pumps. They ordinarily cost $44. I purchased them for $25. Yes, they are cheap. I know some girls would never put their feet inside $25 faux leather shoes…

Wish-listed white denim pencil skirts

I would love to be able to try this outfit. The white denim pencil skirt is from Current/Elliott. It’s their “The Stiletto Pencil denim skirt”. It’s available via at a $332.00 price tag.Current Elliott The Stiletto Pencil denim skirt

Needless to say $332.00 isn’t affordable for me right now. I could get the skirt using a credit card but that would be a crazy and irresponsible thing to do. If you can’t pay for it in cash without risking not being able to pay all your bills, you can’t afford it with credit either. So this look will go on my list of outfits I will try out when my financial circumstances afford purchasing a $332 skirt. I’m envisioning a look that includes some gold tone accessories to go with the clutch, red nails and a red lip.

Vanessa Bruno white denim pencil skirt

Here’s another look I’d love to try. It pairs a Vanessa Bruno white denim pencil skirt with an ecru Isabel Marant Reese voile top. Add a matte white Barathea wool Victoria Beckham Fitted Tuxedo Jacket. So far there’s nothing green to make green pumps work with this look. Although personally I think green pumps can work with this look by themselves. But I’ve thrown in a green multi Jérôme Dreyfuss Zig-Zag Shoulder Bag and some additional green accessories (an ISHARYA Serpent Druzy Statement Necklace, a green lens Ray-Ban – RB3362 Cockpit Sunglasses and a David Yurman Albion Ring with Green Onyx in Gold). The same point is to be made about wearing $25 pumps with items that cost from $375 – $2700. A woman who can pull $4,580 worth of items from her closet in just 4 pieces probably doesn’t have a pair of $25 pumps in her closet.

Since I can’t find any suitable white denim pencil skirts in my affordable price range, I am looking at some white skinny jeans instead. I’ve put a pair of white skinny jeans and a green blazer in my Amazon shopping cart. Whether or not I’ll actually purchase them remains to be seen. But something visually similar to the above is what I might try for with the green pumps. White skinny jeans, a white shirt and a green blazer with gold accessories and a beige shoulder bag.

And when I can afford to spend a few hundred dollars a white denim pencil skirt, then I’ll try one or both of the other two looks, maybe with a different pair of green pumps.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
