beautiful dress, sleeveless cowell neck slight sheen short (above knee) in a kind of sea greeny colour. looks fantastic with turquoise jewellery. v flattering.

i've tried all my shoes with it and none look right. flats would be best but it's a party and i want to wear heels (my legs want them too).

red round toed snakeskin killers are fabulous but totally wrong wrong wrong not to say tarty.

strappy black sandals ditto.

silver peeptoe platforms are the best so far but are a bit comedy to be honest as is the way i walk in them.

i'm flummoxed and need to get them this week.

I know i said i didn't want tarty but:

they zip up the back

i think that anything that cuts me off at the ankle is bad.

i am liking the gladiatorial refs though!

I have similar problem in that I have short legs and so anything cutting off at the ankle I usually avoid. however i have a pair of sandals which has a strap a little bit further up on the slimmer part of the ankle and they look ok. Similar to these

Without seeing the frock, it's hard to know what to suggest.

sophable - think theres a problem with the Faith website as I can't access it. I'm linking you to shop style where I'm hoping they'll come up if not then:


select sandals then choose filter colour with gold and silver. The sandals are on page 11 and are called "hestica"

Clure Sun 31-May-09 20:33:30

yes it links just fast forward to pg 11

Heathcliffscathy Sun 31-May-09 20:39:30 genuinely interested as to why you think not!! teach me

FabulousBakerGirl Sun 31-May-09 20:42:54

I meant I have no fashion sense grin

JackieNo Sun 31-May-09 20:42:54

Too blingy? (mirrored heels!)
These are quite pretty too

JackieNo Sun 31-May-09 20:45:51

Bargain, but not very summery.
Interesting but look more grey than silver.

hoxtonchick Sun 31-May-09 20:45:54

hello soph! i have these, & i love them & they're super comfy. i have been wearing them during the day but they could do parties, i'm sure....

fabulous campers

JackieNo Sun 31-May-09 20:47:05

Duck egg and silver?

JackieNo Sun 31-May-09 20:49:42

More bling?

JackieNo Sun 31-May-09 20:56:21

These or the other 2 on the top row (link to the details isn't working), in 'porcini' hmm?

JackieNo Sun 31-May-09 20:59:52

Silver (also available in gold)
HIgher and strappy.
