I'm a bit stumped

thats lovely. Gold? Gold wedges?

ChopsTheDuck Wed 16-Jul-08 08:18:39

matching that gold/bronzy colour would be good. I suppose brown at a push.

LisaLessLumpy Wed 16-Jul-08 08:49:59

Its finding gold wedges though... how about a sandal? again if I can find them hmm

A bronze/gold flip flop affair would be too casual do you think?

LisaLessLumpy Wed 16-Jul-08 09:12:42

how about these?

MadBadandDangeroustoKnow Wed 16-Jul-08 09:24:53

Agree that metallic would be good with the dress. Colour on my screen is a bit unreliable so I can't tell if they're a good colour match, but the style is good.

<<Envious of anyone who can wear high heeled strappy sandals>>

I think I need to get the dress first (won on ebay last night) then take it with me shopping. I reckon sandals are the way to go though as the dress is silk and will probably look quite delicate. hmm

ps, I'm not great with high strappy heels either, but could just about manage for an evening out if I didn't have to walk far grin

new look have some gold wedges and sandals

LisaLessLumpy Wed 16-Jul-08 09:47:11

Thanks for that, I think they will be too bright though, it looks a dark gold/bronze on the print of the dress.

Lola234 Wed 16-Jul-08 15:04:31

these wedges would look fantastic, the colour is definitly perfect. cause the red clashes with the green

PeachyBAHons Wed 16-Jul-08 15:08:57

if you want aharmonious colour scheme go for the gold for glam, brown for more under stated

or if you want cool clashing which the young people (OK, Gok LOL) seem to favour, a nice lime sandal wedge

LisaLessLumpy Wed 16-Jul-08 15:21:02

Lola - blimey they are high, very cool too, just cannot justify the money though, I have spent far too much on clothes and shoes lately, not good when DH has had to take a 20% paycut hmm

LisaLessLumpy Wed 16-Jul-08 15:26:48

PeachyBaHons - I would never have thought of Lime wedges...

how about a muted red sandal? like this or am I way off the mark?

PeachyBAHons Wed 16-Jul-08 16:02:01

I think you'd need to ty it, it could be fab, or could look like you tried to tone and got it wrong iyswim

LisaLessLumpy Wed 16-Jul-08 16:05:02

you're right. I'll go shopping and take the dress with me

PeachyBAHons Wed 16-Jul-08 16:10:40

don't forget ebay again though lol [ here]

Just had the dress delivered... the print is not gold like it looks on the photo it is a pale green, so not likely to be able to get a colour match on the dress. So what contrasting colour do you think? its an awkward one, even though it is two shades of green, because it is silk it has a metallic look to it hmm I can only think of red but I'm not sure. The dress is quite long, it comes down to mid calf on me as I am a shortarse.

That's what happens when you buy of ebay I suppose.

chipo Fri 18-Jul-08 11:29:08

I think gold would still look good.

hope you like.

LisaLessLumpy Fri 18-Jul-08 11:47:37

I like the first ones and last ones, I am in no rush to wear the dress though, so will get some shoes at a later date, I have bought too many pairs the last two months hmm

I think you are right though, I think gold will be the best bet.
