shoes I like the style but don't know if they are 'old lady' and I am 33

I like the full skirt idea of the dress if anyone can suggest alternatives! Any 5' 6" and 9 and a half closer to ten stone!

I like the style but the colour is a bit much, or would be for me. They seemto have another similar one in beige?

Pinkflipflop Sun 28-Apr-13 08:10:56

Ooh must look! I did wonder about the colour!

MelanieCheeks Sun 28-Apr-13 08:11:04

The dress is lovely, I like fit'n'flare styles. The link to the shoes seems to be broken, can you describe?

Hairbender Sun 28-Apr-13 08:11:50

I love the dress can't see the link to your shoes though! Xx

xigris Sun 28-Apr-13 08:13:13

Love the dress and love the colour! Go for the pink and stand out smile. Couldn't see the shoes though as the link didn't work

I'm the opposite of House! I love the colour of the dress and think it is a lovely style too. Can't get the shoes link to work. I love bright colours so beige is never an option for me!

Pinkflipflop Sun 28-Apr-13 08:14:09


Does this link work?

Fairylea Sun 28-Apr-13 08:15:03

Go for the pink! Be brave. Everyone will be wearing beige and nude. Be different!

BunnyLebowski Sun 28-Apr-13 08:18:18

Dress is fabulous. Love love love it!

Shoes are a big no from me. I'd go for a less fussy wedge maybe?

MelanieCheeks Sun 28-Apr-13 08:19:07

Yes that link works. The shoes are nice, but I'm not sure if they go with the dress. If you go with the coral colour (which is beautiful) a plainer shoe in a nude/ beige is right, but I think the gladiator straps are too much next to the pattern of the dress.

Pinkflipflop Sun 28-Apr-13 08:21:06

Ok! Thanks for the opinionssmile

Fairylea Sun 28-Apr-13 08:22:53

Shoes are a no no from me. Sorry! I'd go for a high heel court shoe in nude, no platform just plain and pretty. A bit Kate Middleton-y.

If the dress is so bright etc you need very simple elegant shoes.

Hooleywhipper Sun 28-Apr-13 08:23:43

I bought that same dress last week, very flattering and more of a raspberry pink I would say. Just to add I'm 42!! Size 14, if that helps decision

Hooleywhipper Sun 28-Apr-13 08:25:01

Also I plan to wear it with my cream/gold irregular choice shoes,if that helps.

Pinkflipflop Sun 28-Apr-13 08:30:48

hooleywhipper would you say it is true to size? I'm def a 10 with a bust so I hope it isn't tight!

Pinkflipflop Sun 28-Apr-13 08:31:37

So would the 'Kate Middleton* LK Bennett shoes look too much with it, ie I wanna be Kate?

ILoveGregoryHouse Sun 28-Apr-13 08:33:24

lovely dress. Wedges a bit clunky so looked on Dune website and saw some nice sandals. Link above.

Chubfuddler Sun 28-Apr-13 08:33:26

KM style nude heels would be perfect with that dress (which is lovely).

ILoveGregoryHouse Sun 28-Apr-13 08:34:48

Link not working. Sandals are called Fenchurch.

wonderstuff Sun 28-Apr-13 08:38:49

Fantastic dress, don't buy beige, go for red, it'll look amazing.

Blu Sun 28-Apr-13 08:39:50

According to the magazine I was reading yesterday the nude shoe look is very definitely last year, and bright shoes are IN. There were some gorgeous almost turquoise suede high heels from Zara that looked fab. I would go the bright colour locking route with that v lovely dress.

I really like those dune shoes! Wonder if they are comfy?

Pinkflipflop Sun 28-Apr-13 08:41:58
