brought this dress[ here]] for a wedding and am unsure to play it safe and go for black shoes, shrug ( or grey/silver) or maybe try like a jade green with it?? Any ideas welcome

What about purple?

Lovely dress btw

I can't be doing with black shoes personally.

I like the sound of jade green though. It's a lovely dress.

no idea sorry
I would personally stick to black and white but then I am boring

i feel black shoes might be to winter like as wedding is at end of August -
hmm have not thought about purple!

I'd go for green

I'd go for emerald green tbh or purple like a previous poster said

if I had the money I would never play safe with shoes

EffiePerine Mon 11-Aug-08 16:22:18

purple ones are nice! CD - i normally always play it safe but just want to try and be a bit different as Dh is best man and ds1 is page boy! - it so easy for then to get their outfits sorted grin ds2 is only 1 and going in a lovely suit i got in the monsoon sale! grin

Cappuccino Mon 11-Aug-08 16:26:14

cardigans/knitted shrugs too csual for weddngs imo

nailpolish Mon 11-Aug-08 16:31:08

yes they are well swoony

not my cup of tea but matchy matchy

Cappuccino Mon 11-Aug-08 16:31:36

no shrug

no faffing about unless you have wobbly white shoulders

actually bugger it

no shrug whatever condition of shoulders

naily I agree with you but if the alternative is going all b/w I would probably just wear any old insane colours and pretend I was v trendsetting and grin a lot

even if I looked like a bag lady

I am sure this approach works

<sweeps hand insanely>

Love them shoes!!!! Also agree with NP that it need to be excatly the same, that could be a hard job
