What shoes with this dress?

Planning to wear this dress to a late summer wedding, in a country house. What shoes would you pair it with? I can cope with heels!

Caulkheadupnorf Sun 25-Jun-17 18:02:47

NOT the ones in the picture.

KnittingPearl Sun 25-Jun-17 18:24:10

I would probably pick up one of the colours in the dress, rather than a neutral shoe, as it would make it more interesting. Concur fully not the model's shoes! It needs something much less clumpy.

What is your budget?

Rinceoir Sun 25-Jun-17 19:13:07

I'm flexible enough on budget, happy to pay for something I'll wear again. Agree about model's shoes!

MrsD79 Sun 25-Jun-17 19:14:44

Red stilettos and red clutch or the baby blue.

KnittingPearl Sun 25-Jun-17 19:15:21

Are you hatting or a bit more casual?

KnittingPearl Sun 25-Jun-17 19:16:23

I'd go with either red or blue, perhaps a blue tending towards cobalt if you think it would work with the blue in the dress?

Rinceoir Sun 25-Jun-17 19:19:19

Oh I'd love a hat. If anyone can suggest one of those too?! Not casual!

KnittingPearl Sun 25-Jun-17 19:26:19

You could match shoes and hat, or go neutral for one and colourful for the other. I would probably wear a cream hat (easier to wear again) and go for colourful shoes, but if you looked into hiring a hat you would have more options.

What size shoe?

Rinceoir Sun 25-Jun-17 19:29:17

I have tiny feet, size 4 and narrow. Yes I think a neutral hat maybe for future use. Although I have dark hair and pale skin so a bright hat might suit better?

I'm fairly useless at putting outfits together!

Rinceoir Sun 25-Jun-17 19:31:27

Wedding is in Ireland so I'm not sure hiring a hat will work. Unless anyone can recommend a Dublin supplier?

Glitterspy Sun 25-Jun-17 19:33:51

It has a kind of 70s hippie vibe so would go well with some clogs - Swedish Hasbeens$ja=tsid:44970%7Ccid:207304675%7Cagid:10450509235%7Ctid:pla-309119205267%7Ccrid:198554167170%7Cnw:g%7Crnd:8686660885825134864%7Cdvc:m%7Cadp:1o1%7Cmt:

Beautiful dress, OP

How about these?

KnittingPearl Sun 25-Jun-17 19:55:30

Would these


Intransige Sun 25-Jun-17 20:00:05

Is this a possibility? Or do you want a hat hat rather than a fascinator type thing?

Intransige Sun 25-Jun-17 20:01:48

Or this is also a bit flowery which picks up the dress pattern.

SharkSkinThing Sun 25-Jun-17 20:02:42

Can't seem to link from here, but a second on the clogs: Seasalt have some beautiful ones and well priced.

Gorgeous dress.

KnittingPearl Sun 25-Jun-17 20:03:10

Ooh, I like that - I think this sort of dress lends itself better to a fascinator or hairpiece rather than a hat, much as I am a fan of a good hat.

KnittingPearl Sun 25-Jun-17 20:03:51

Took too long to post - I like both of those.

Rinceoir Sun 25-Jun-17 20:13:35

The Boden shoes are lovely, are they wide fitting? I love clogs but think I need a bit of a heel on the day.

Headwear wise I prefer hats but would take a larger fascinator. I have a strangely large head, so nothing tight!

ImADingleDangleScarecrow Sun 25-Jun-17 20:13:46

These red ones would look nice if they're not too bright in RL

KnittingPearl Sun 25-Jun-17 20:29:25

Not sure how they fit I'm afraid.

Rinceoir Sun 25-Jun-17 20:32:47

I love those! Conveniently there's a topshop by my office so may take a look tomorrow!

Apparently there's a milliner in the town I'll be staying in Ireland, maybe I'll email and see if they have anything that might work in stock. I like this but it might be too fussy?
