Firstly, i can't do links so could anyone help me link to 'embroidered tunic dress' from EAST? Its dark grey chiffon with black embroidery.

I fell in love with this dress in store and hope people don't think it's too sombre. Its made to look quite casual on the website but its such a delicate fabric, i'm hoping to make it seem more dressy.

I need shoe ideas, please for a late summer wedding in a field- can't walk in high heels at the best of times!

ideas greatly appreciated. tia x

ps i should add that the dress is just below the knee on me and i'm not short so the model must be really tall!

I think it's this one

Wedding in a field = wedges or flats

What shoes have you got?
Always best to wear a comfy pair I think!
I have these from Bhs £30 - look lovely on and very spangly but dead comfy.

I think you need something : silver jewellery, or bright, as an accessory, to lift it, so that it doesn't end up drab.

What were you thinking of?

thanks notheop! i'm really grateful for the link.

the last shoe choice of yours was the most suitable, i think. the cork in the first seems too casual.

Sorry just seen field, no heels. No problem. Some strappy glittery jewelled flats wound be fine.

What about jewellery?

chaise, i was looking for dark silver wedge sandals possibly with ankle strap or charcoal grey nubuck wedges again maybe with ankle strap. i have strappy silver heeled sandals but they aren't comfy enough.

i was going to have a dark grey satin clutch bag and silvery / diamonte type hair slide (depending on shoe choice). does that sound awful?

( i am olive skinned have very dark brown almost corkscrew curly hair in short bob style and slide would be hair simple slide type.)

x post chaise.

I'm not very good at accessorising... maybe choker style necklace as its a high neckline..?

NoonarAgain Fri 21-Aug-15 13:19:49

would you go for silver shoes or its that too unsubtle? would black with jewels be better?

GothicRainbow Fri 21-Aug-15 13:21:34

I think black wedges could be the way forward. Think the dress is absolutely gorgeous.

Have you thought about a sandal with a chunky heal? I quite liked these ones:,default,pd.html

Adds abit of sparkle!

gothic, thanks. glad to have my dress choice endorsed. i'd never have thought of those shoes but certainly an idea, although 'not very me' at least i could walk in them!

NoonarAgain Fri 21-Aug-15 13:27:47

need to pop out but will be back later to check thread x

I think black wedges would be great.

I wouldn't wear any kind of neck jewellery. Earrings and a cuff type thing on one wrist would look good with a statement ring on the other hand?

SymbollocksInteractionism Fri 21-Aug-15 14:19:24

How about these?

NoonarAgain Fri 21-Aug-15 15:40:50

ok...inspired by gothic, I've bought a pair of sandals from Dune called 'marcee' (black). perhaps some kind person could do a link for me? i hope MN approves of the shoe choice!

i don't really wear earrings as they make my ears go septic!! and am set on some some of spangly hair slide so that should be enough, along with a bracelety thing.

NoonarAgain Fri 21-Aug-15 15:41:41

oh and a big thanks to symboll for the jewellery advice.

NoonarAgain Fri 21-Aug-15 15:56:08

I'm now panicking the shoes won't go...any feedback on my choice??

Dune Marcee

thanks anthonysmile

any comments?

GothicRainbow Fri 21-Aug-15 17:56:37

Glad to have been inspiring grin

I think they will go really well, keep all your jewellery silver and I think you'll look great!
