The Dilemma of Shorts and Heels (worn together)

The lovely Maggie of the blog Dimestore Diamond was very kind to let me use a few of her pictures for this post. You can see the full post here. She brings up a very intersesting point about wearing shorts and heels together. Since the pinup girls of WWII, women who have worn shorts and heel together have been self-concious of looking too much like a pinup girl. Not that there's anything wrong with that, its just probably not the best way to go to work.
Anyway, here's my take on the issue. I don't think it's necesarily a work outfit, but i don't think it screams "pinup!" either.
Shirt: Thrifted
Shorts (cut from jeans): Thrifted
Tights: JCPenney's
Heels: Thrifted
Clutch: Vintage Burberry
Necklace: Target


  1. I love those sparkly tights! I've been wanting to try the shorts tights and heels combo but wasn't sure if I could pull it off. I think you've encouraged me to give it a shot!


  2. Shorts and heels are great together! Love how you rocked it. I don't think it'd make you look like a pinup girl as long as you covered up everything else!

    Kristine. Or Polly.

  3. Whenever I wear heels with shorts for work, I pick a modern looking shoe (usually just my wedge ankle booties). I love how you've styled the torn denim with the shimmery tights, nice contrast!


We love hearing from you guys, so please let us know what you think! All replies will be replied to on your blog. If you don't have/we can't find your blog, responses will be here :)
