I can't decide what colour shoes and bag? I have a really nice pair of nude heels, but not sure they would go. They are these, but in a nude colour, the pic doesn't do them justice actually, look gorgeous on!

Should I stick with boring black? The embroidery is silver and gold.....

Instead of shopping for a new pair, wear the shoes you already have, and use the time you have just saved to learn how to do links properly please smile

Not black. I'd go with silver. These Melissa ones are lovely.

chuckyoufarlie. have you any idea how your message reads?
just not necessary to be that arrogant and patronising, when someone is just looking for a bit of help.

Thanks missbeehiving! Chuck, if you have nothing useful to say best keep quiet! That was so rude an unnecessary!

Lordy - what is going on in S&B today - did some people just decide to be really mean for fun hmm

How long is the dress? Will your shoes be visible? If not I'd stick with some you have if not agree that a silver pair would look pretty.

chirst not those shoes

MrsCampbellBlack Sun 28-Aug-11 18:06:11

Malcolm - I challenge you to say something nice on a s&b thread in the next half an hour wink

Lovely dress. I would go for something like these.

Not keen on the ones you linked to.

Thehusbandsatcricketagain Sun 28-Aug-11 18:29:36

oh found those shoes are to die for envy

KurriKurri Sun 28-Aug-11 19:23:12

petitemum, - I don't think I'd go for nude with that dress, black or silver would be better. The black ones you linked to are nice and strappy, but I'm not so keen on the fluffy bit on the front.

What's your shoe budget? these are gorgeous.

Love the dress by the way smile

petitemum I was rude and I apologise.

I do actually think nude shoes with black maxi... usually only wear them for daytime, where a flat shoe is easiest, but for nighttime a heel is lovely... so, I like the nude shoe better, but haven't seen the black one 'in the flesh' so it's hard to say either way.

PetiteMum Sun 28-Aug-11 21:38:05

Hmmm.... Thanks everyone for the suggestions.... My sandal budget is up to 50 I'm afraid, although the ones linked to are gorge!

Apology accepted, and thanks for the opinion.... Hmmmmm..... Guess the hunt continues! smile
