Hi I am going to a very posh ball with my mum two weeks tonight. Have bought this dress monsoon Murillo dress from eBay hoping it comes in time and fits! (Diet starts tonight) (btw not this auction another one just showing the pic)
Anyway....what colour of shoes will go best? I am 5ft and don't like too high stiletto type heels prefer chunky heel as more confident. Have to be comfy but for one night I could suffer. What other accessories could I get? Bag colour etc??
Also...would this be ok for a wedding next July??
Thanks ladies. Oh must also say budget is best! Seriously skint no savings and been off work for a while so I know this pay day coming will be a lot less than normal.
As the dress is bright and colourful and has a bold pattern, I think plain simple courts or peep toes would be best. Also, as it's Nov.
You could coordinate and go with the cerise that is on the dress, or alternatively, how about a dull silver? With matching simple silver clutch? A thin string of silver pearls would look nice too and not fight with the rushing panel. If your hair is long enough, it would be nice to pin it up to really show off the elegance of the off the shoulder style.
