I love these, but wouldn't know what to wear them with. Any suggestions?

codswallop Fri 28-Sep-07 10:52:17

GrumpyOldHorsewoman Fri 28-Sep-07 10:54:23

Yes, it was the brown ones I liked, too. They look quite high - will I totter?

NadineBaggott Fri 28-Sep-07 10:55:09

aaah codswallop, CODSWALLOP

I looooooooooooooove that name!

lou33 Fri 28-Sep-07 10:55:25

knee length skirt

MamaG Fri 28-Sep-07 10:58:45

you won't totter as the heel is rather chunky

They are very nice, I want them. They would go really well with wide leg trousers too.

TinyGang Fri 28-Sep-07 11:04:37

Those are gorgeous shoes. I think you could wear them with skirt or trousers.

Cod that was your original name wasn't it?<old timer emoticon>

My school uniform from the 70s grin

well, these are nicer but they make me a bit nostalgic for the days when I could walk a few inches taller without falling over.

codswallop Fri 28-Sep-07 11:14:39

codswallop Fri 28-Sep-07 11:20:03

tell tjat to the nympheets in gap

BarefootShirl Fri 28-Sep-07 11:24:39

Not really my thing as I don't like closed in shoes (or any other type give a choice!)but I would have thought they would be good with long skirt or wide trousers.

NomDePlume Fri 28-Sep-07 11:27:31

I love 'em

Also keen on the double strapped ones in tan.

I wouldn't wear 'em with jeans though.

nailpolish Fri 28-Sep-07 11:28:14

thyed be fine if you are tall and size 6
but thats it

nailpolish Fri 28-Sep-07 11:28:28

otherwise look sensible and mumsy


NomDePlume Fri 28-Sep-07 11:29:30

fishnets or opaque tights/hold ups if you're not feeling brave enough for f'nets

fitted pencil skirt

fitted top

V sexy Miss Moneypenny look.

Or opaque tights and little shift-type dress.

T-bar shoes also good for these looks, imo

codswallop Fri 28-Sep-07 11:30:05

also gpa stirghtleg jeans

or suit trews

NomDePlume Fri 28-Sep-07 11:30:40

i'm size 5, np


BTW, chunky heels MUCH more forgiving and flattering on non-supermoggel figures than stilettos

codswallop Fri 28-Sep-07 11:31:49

the platformt hign si sgood

nailpolish Fri 28-Sep-07 11:32:04


i jsut ahve a thing about brown shoes like that

bornw only for boots

GrumpyOldHorsewoman Fri 28-Sep-07 11:42:42

Nearly all my footwear is of the boot variety, and after seeing a photo of myself in flat boots today have vowed to invest in some heels, being vertically challenged as I am. I agree that chunkier footwear is better on less-than-supermodel legs, otherwise you can have a tendency to look a bit miss piggy-ish with trotters stuffed into stilettoes. You have convinced me - I am getting them and will wear them with jeans, my clingy little cashmere sweater dress and may even buy a pencil skirt shock
It's about time my wardrobe reflected my age - I have dressed like a student for too long.

Will look gorg with a pencil skirt.

I'd wear the brown ones with blue skinnys, brown or green smocky top or some sort of knitwear.
