I have size 9 feet so buying shoes last minute in a specific colour is almost impossible.

I need hot pink shoes to match the flower detail in a Joules dress.

Has anyone had any success in dyeing shoes?

Can you recommend a brand? And can I get it all sorted by Saturday morning?!!!

Why do they need to match. Can't you wear them grey?

I could actually!! But have a hot pink handbag...

Will find a picture of the dress

Your bag and shoes don't necessarily have to match either. Putin a pale grey throw if you want to tie it all together.

Keep them grey! I think matching shoes with bag is not a thing anymore

Put on. Obviously don't try to accessorise Vladimir Putin.

This dress and handbag and my shoes

What do you think?

Can you recommend any jewellery?

Putin could drape around my shoulders pretty well I think

PS I don't like the huge bow on the shoes but they fit and that's quite an acheivement!

No help sorry, but that dress is gorgeous. I this k they all work really well together.

I've never dyed suede shoes and it gone well. It seems to blotch!

I think it's gorgeous as it is.

Donthate Thu 28-Jul-16 20:21:06

It all looks lovely.

Bellyrub1980 Thu 28-Jul-16 20:28:25

Yay!! Thank you!!

I think that's a lovely outfit, and the shoes are neutral enough that they would go with most colours. Have a lovely time!

fab outfit, definitely no dyeing required, spend the money on a glass of fizz smile

Ilovenannyplum Thu 28-Jul-16 21:04:25

Don't dye them!
That all matches beautifully

Mumtodogs Thu 28-Jul-16 22:35:01

Definitely don't dye them, the grey is perfect. I've dyed loads of clothes but never shoes..I'd be worried about feet getting hot and the dye coming off and staining them !!

Defo keep the shoes as they are, what a gorgeous outfit.

It all looks fab together. Getting everything very matchy-matchy is too old fashioned/try hard so you will look much more stylish and pulled together with your subtly toning choices.

Thank you for the lovely responses! Looking forward to wearing it now!
