hi can someone point me in the right direction. my dd has got a cream prom dress and we were thinking some blackcurrent shoes and accessories would be nice but can't seem to find any.

My budget is pretty low too, just to make things awkward.

How old is she / shoe size?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 08-Apr-13 19:57:39

There's a huge sale in HoF. Managed to get both of my dds their prom shoes today for less than £60 for both.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 08-Apr-13 19:58:18

Do they HAVE to be blackcurrant, or could they be another colour which would be nice with cream?

NotSuchASmugMarriedNow Mon 08-Apr-13 20:02:12

they don't have to be blackcurrent we just couldn't think what colour would be nice with a cream dress. She tried on my nude colour shoes but it just looked too "weddingy" with those

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 08-Apr-13 20:02:51

How high does she want?

NotSuchASmugMarriedNow Mon 08-Apr-13 20:02:55

Remus - will have a look at the HoF website thanks

Google. You can get nice shoes which are white for weddings dyed pretty much any colour. They are fabric but nice designs.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 08-Apr-13 20:19:09

Too weddingy? V cheap!

NotSuchASmugMarriedNow Mon 08-Apr-13 20:21:57

NotSuchASmugMarriedNow Mon 08-Apr-13 20:25:55

mortifiedadams - she's 16

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 08-Apr-13 20:28:57

Can you link to/describe the dress?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 08-Apr-13 20:31:41

These are the ones we got for dd1, but can't see them on the HoF site.

NotSuchASmugMarriedNow Mon 08-Apr-13 20:41:20

I can't link to it because I got it in the monsoon winter sale and it's gone now. it's a cream wedding dress with a cowl neck and a low cut back covered in lace (where the back bit is cut out)

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Mon 08-Apr-13 20:51:51

Mmm. In that case, I think you're right to avoid nude. Maybe silver or gold scary platfoms would work, especially if studded?

How about a plain satin shoe and then dye them - help here
