any ideas anyone please?

black - or match with accessories - silver for eg

Bluestocking Tue 12-Aug-08 20:19:02

Gold or a pewtery silver might be nice?

EffiePerine Tue 12-Aug-08 20:19:42

or poss silver

widgypog Tue 12-Aug-08 20:20:57

i like those but do you think its a bit matchy?

CouldYouWouldYouWithaGoat Tue 12-Aug-08 20:21:10

these match but not in a good way

Red or Magenta for evening.

lovely dress smile

personally I would go for a complete contrast with shoes

I bought some gorgeous mustard yellow strappy sandals recently that would be fab

jade green?

silver would be ok, if a bit safer

not black

olympicsnotfederer Tue 12-Aug-08 20:23:14

and don't try to match with purple

CouldYouWouldYouWithaGoat Tue 12-Aug-08 20:23:42

god i am getting old, laughing at 'fashion' shoes

i agree with olympic, bright yellow or green would be cool

MrsBates Tue 12-Aug-08 20:25:34

Yellow or green ladies - I'm with you.

widgypog Tue 12-Aug-08 20:27:28

ooh never thought of yellow or green..what kind of shoes..?

widgypog Tue 12-Aug-08 20:28:07

olympic ..can you link your yellow shoes?

maidamess Tue 12-Aug-08 20:28:14

As its a bright purple, I'd go black I think.

Dragonbutter Tue 12-Aug-08 20:31:28

definitely yellow. someone probably already linked these
or maybe these gold ones

LetThemEatCake Tue 12-Aug-08 20:31:49

green, I love purple and green.

Red also fantastic

olympicsnotfederer Tue 12-Aug-08 20:53:12

sorry widgypog, they were in the sale at River Island and no longer on line

they are strappy sandals with a medium heel and with a big buckle on the ankle strap

look fab with tanned legs

olympicsnotfederer Tue 12-Aug-08 20:54:06

depends on the occasion but I would go with a wdge or strappy, not a court shoe

silver would be lovely. really nice dress widgypog. yellow would be horrific (but i hate yellow) green is ok and nicely suffragetty.

a peep toe wedge type shoe and colour I agree with a yellow for funky young look but a tan for more subtle look
