Hopeless shoe shopper needs your help please

Hello stylish ladies

I need some help. I do not wear shoes, just boots or trainers. However I am going to a posh do and therefore bought a posh dress

clearly this dress needs actual shoes and I have no idea where to start so please can you help with some of your wonderful suggestions. Ideally something I can walk in if at all possible grin

I was on a roll so also purchased this and again have no idea what to wear with it.... could I get away with black opaques and boots?

Thank you very much indeed

First dress is lovely. I think nude or gold shoes.

thank you. I was thinking nude (not sure I could carry off gold!)

Do you think peep toe type thing or sandals? I am so clueless.

Saw some reasonable ones in M and S which may be ok (and cheap)

Love the first dress!! I'd go for nude (as close to your skin tone as poss) peep toes or closed toe either very round or very pointed (not in between).

Off in search of some links...

ooh thank you.

I notice that phase eight now has a photo of a model in the dress (when I bought it there was just the one photo of the dress) and she has nude shoes on.....

I like all of those!

Will need to go and try some on and see if I can walk. May need to practice for a few weeks though...
