I have this dress in a teal colour. It's quite short so I would only wear it with black opaque tights. Every shoe I own looks wrong with it. Flats, nope need a heel. Heels somehow look too spindly. I am chunky of thigh so need something big to balance it out. I don't do brown so would get more mileage out of black or nude even. Does nude work with black tights?
It's a dilemma! Oh and can't really afford more than £40.
Mary Janes are my normal shoe staple as I like the retro look and find them easiest to walk in. I have some already similar to ones you have shown but they are very high and I should have said the outfit is for work and there's no way I could last the day in them.
I love all the ones you have shown actually, totally me. I am now looking for something slightly lower of heel that in no way could be described as frumpy!
