Some of you may remember me posting about this dress that I ordered last week

www.nancymac.co.uk/collections/archive-sale/products/blanche-shift-dress-in-green-candy-floral-silk-cotton

Well, it arrived today and it is absolutely beautiful! I ordered a 12 and a 14, and the 12 fits perfectly. It's really well made, and the lining even holds me in in all the right places. Very pleased with it indeed! Now...shoes and bag suggestions please smile

I was thinking of picking out the blue, but I'm not sure if that might be a bit twee? Plus I think if I went for cream there's half a chance I might wear them again one day. I can't do massive heels, but I definitely need some sort of heel...any ideas very welcome!

Actually no it's white not cream...not sure about white shoes confused

I'd go for blue/teal shoes. Would look fab!

Love the dress. Are you wearing that belt or swapping it?

What colour are the dark leaves?

Whyhellodaffodil Mon 27-Jun-16 20:32:07

It's lovely - I think either teals blue or there are some pink blush/nude leaves in there, you could pick up on with some pinky toned nude courts if you wanted to get some shoes you'd definitely wear again?

itstheyearzero Mon 27-Jun-16 20:42:44

Yes I'm keeping the belt I think. Those Zara shoes are nice, but being 46 I fear they would not look funky one me, just frumpy. The darker bits are a kind of taupe/light brown colour. I'm thinking maybe something with a strap, kind of Mary Janey?

Whyhellodaffodil Mon 27-Jun-16 20:43:56

Tan shoes might work? Will have a google,and for taupe ones brb!

RudyMentary Mon 27-Jun-16 20:45:31

I would go tan.

itstheyearzero Mon 27-Jun-16 20:46:18

Argh sorry!

itstheyearzero Mon 27-Jun-16 20:56:41

The Clark's ones?They are great but Im trying to keep costs down because I'll probably only wear them when I wear that dress. Mind you, if I find the perfect pair...hmmm

melodycool Mon 27-Jun-16 21:01:02

A bit random but I actually think fuschia hot pink shoes would look good!

itstheyearzero Mon 27-Jun-16 21:12:27

Oh no don't confuse me melody!

I love the third ones, thanks Cactus. Not sure if they are a bit clumpy though? It's quite a delicate dress. We've got a Clark's outlet nearby, I might go on Saturday and see if there are any in stock there and try them on.

SoleBizzz Mon 27-Jun-16 22:14:02

Gorgeous dress

Pantsalive Tue 28-Jun-16 11:01:26

Not sure what size you are. My guess is that these will be too big. I have them and they'd be great with your dress. Not sure if you could track down another pair anywhere.

Or I wonder if this sort of thing might work: www.newlook.com/shop/shoe-gallery/view-all-shoes/khaki-suedette-ankle-strap-block-heels-_376579234

itstheyearzero Tue 28-Jun-16 13:00:38

Oh those Clarks would be perfect. I'm a size 5 though sob. Will hunt around for some in my size!

Pantsalive Tue 28-Jun-16 14:06:29

I'll lend you mine smile
I think there may have been a pair of lightly used size 5s on ebay. There were from a few years ago unfortunately. I just knew they would be good.
