i have this dress to wear to a wedding next month. I was going to wear a pair of patent shoes with it, but Im not terribly happy with how it looks. not only that, but all of my pretty clutches seem to have disappeared.

should I go black for accessories or champagne/ivory?

I have tiny feet, so need a bar across my foot (high arch, narrow feet)

The dress looks white not ivory...I take it it is ivory?its a lovely dress- I would personally for for colour accessories like a red. Champagne is really hard to put with black unless it is an exact colour match to the colour of the dress.are you wanting to stick with white/ivory/black colour scheme or are you open to a pop of colour?

i think I would prefer black/ivory accessories. the belt is black patent, and I was admiring this earlier today and thought something simillar might look ok.

god, i hate being such a pleb scruff!

Any good?

Although the burgundy would look lovely with that stole...

I like those! do they not look a bit too funky for such a grown up dress? on (the picture doesnt do it justice) its v audrey hepburn.

OracleInaCoracle Thu 29-Sep-11 15:04:27

ooooh, I love the burgundy!

tethersend Thu 29-Sep-11 15:06:02

I think the burgundy would work really well, especially if you picked it out with nail colour...

I think those shoes are a bit too workish meself to go with a celebration day.
You need either v strappy or a plain court.

tethersend Thu 29-Sep-11 15:13:57

Nonsense. Listen to me grin

So, moondog... dare I ask about the boots...?

OracleInaCoracle Thu 29-Sep-11 15:59:01

i like these

I like the ones you linked to lissie, sorry but the Office ones are fugly. I think in patent you have to reign in the deisgn or else it looks tacky. And the heel looks frumpy on that design too.

I want to look good, Ive put on quite a bit of weight lately (on purpose) and I dont get dressed up very often!

I love the cream and black courts-they pretty and wont date. The very cheap ones are nice and I would get both for that price! tethers-the ones you picked dont go with that dress at all!<get to the back of the class>

Tethers, I put out an APB for you with the latest boot related happenings in my life but was crually ignored.

Since then I have found a v nice pair of brown boots which are wending their way to the kennel but I have lost track of what they are or where I found them.

Note to self; stop bloody shopping.I have gone mental recently.

Ah, sorry moondog. Was a little preoccupied on Tuesday... You have to show me the brown boots you bought! Although maybe do it on that thread, as we've hijacked enough with this saga grin

I bought these recently. They look nicer in real life though.

moondog Thu 29-Sep-11 22:10:00

They are nice Jenny.

feelingratheroverwhelmed Thu 29-Sep-11 22:18:36

Love those Jenny, OP think they'd look very nice. Love the dress too!

I got some similar to these and they look fab (classic dull)
