My 7-year-old son, who's usually quite reliable in his opinion about these sorts of things, pointed and laughed at my new shoes saying they're too showy and that they look like clown shoes!
Please give me your honest opinion about the shoes--too showy? ruffle look clownish?
I can't see myself returning them, but I could see (cover your eyes if you're squeamish) cutting off the ruffle.
Also, do you think I can wear them with navy hose and/or a blue skirt like the one below
or will it be too much blue? Thank you so much for weighing in!
