These yellow shoes are bad, right?

I have just spent my monthly rent on this dress for a very posh ex's wedding next month.

Am I right in thinking that the yellow shoes are really not good? Any ideas on what would suit, would red be too clown-y?

The dress is AMAZING!!!!!envy envy envy envy

I like the yellow. Red or blue are options too. Just not boring black or even worse, bud.

I'd prefer yellow over red to be honest.

Id say yellow or if you want to play it safe tan.

I LOVE the yellow shoes!

Fab dress, hate the shoes.

They look fab with it, if they're too bold there's a little bit of blue you could highlight with accessories.

It is stunning, enjoy wearing it!

The yellow shoes are OK I think, they link to the mustardy colour in the dress. I reckon you'd do fine picking any tone out of the dress; a rusty red, the blue or the purple? A court shoe might be nice as a simple contrast to a more statementy dress. Something like this (but cheaper!).

Really? Am surprised, they are just so yellow smile. I was going to hide my feet away in something nude.

Thanks for the replies, I will reconsider. Am not a high heels girl so will have to get some practise in!

Ooof, that dress is the bollocks! envy

Hadron21 Wed 29-Jul-15 15:40:14

I need that dress! What's the sizing like?

Valsoldknickers Wed 29-Jul-15 15:42:23

Beautiful dress!

museumum Wed 29-Jul-15 15:43:20

I like the sky blue in the dress - shoes or sandals that colour would be cool!

ecuse Wed 29-Jul-15 15:47:54

Love the shoes

ClaudetteWyms Wed 29-Jul-15 15:50:23

Love the dress and the shoes!

I would never wear yellow clothing but for bags and shoes it is fab.

Manic3mum Wed 29-Jul-15 15:55:00

love the whole outfit! gorgeous

MsRinky Wed 29-Jul-15 16:44:39

Good god, that dress is magnificent. Are you prepared to take the risk of your ex calling the wedding off?

toffeeboffin Wed 29-Jul-15 18:56:21

That's one helluva dress wink

SinglePringle Wed 29-Jul-15 19:01:06

Fab dress PLEASE don't wear nude shoes. Pleeeeeeeeeeease don't. They will kill the hotness of the dress.

Yellow ones look fab but another colour (not black, either) would look great also.

ChainReacting Wed 29-Jul-15 19:19:19

Whoop whoop you have all really cheered me up! And validated the decision to risk the rent grin

SinglePringle I promise I will not wear nudes

Hadron the sizing is flipping tiny but there is a fairly miraculous corset built in

MsRinky He has missed this boat smile

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Wed 29-Jul-15 19:37:59

Love the dress. Don't like the shoes. Hot pink could be good.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Wed 29-Jul-15 19:40:18

I like these but they are very high!

Duckdeamon Wed 29-Jul-15 19:44:26

Thought this was going to be a thread about minging Clarkes sandals!

You have inspired me to at least try on a Vivienne Westwood dress before I turn forty!

MoreCrackThanHarlem Wed 29-Jul-15 19:47:12

I love the yellow shoes.
Definitely agree no nude or black.
These are also lovely and currently half price. Love LOVE your dress!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Wed 29-Jul-15 19:52:57

Duck If you are at all norky or hour glassy, the woman is a genius!
