I have managed to borrow a dress that fits (after last minute trying of planned dress to find norkage had shrunk beyond redemption, should never have stopped bf!) - pic on profile (or will be in a mo).

What on earth do i do for shoes???

Have time tomorrow to shop, only in town though so Debenhams, Monsoon, some shoe shops can't remember which ones, Clarks, etc.

Size 5.

Budget not the main concern.

At the moment will be barefoot which whilst cool in a hippy way is not quite the tone of the wedding

Would like matching shoes, too tricky?
Thinking maybe silver/sparkly sandals?
Can't manage high heels, maybe a low heel, thinking flat might not look so perfect with the dress?

All tips/advice/hep gratefully received

is the wedding on a beach?

JustKeepSwimming Sun 14-Jun-09 16:27:40

No, it's outside on the waterfront in a hotel.

(and just realised the photo is missing the bottom of the dress! will try and take another one later maybe)

Gorgeous dress. Silver strappy sandals - not sparkly.

I found these but they are kids ones! they do say size 5, do you think i could wear them?

(have a big next in town so likely to have them in stock)

hmmmm - get ladies shoes!

JustKeepSwimming Sun 14-Jun-09 16:59:04

Thing is - that heel is just right for me!

The ladies shoes are either totally flat, which is comfortable but not so smart or flattering to the legs, or extremely tall heels that i wouldn't even be able to stand up in!

what about these?

cornsilk Sun 14-Jun-09 17:54:24

Nooooo too casual! Also might clash with the dress.

Nice dress and co-ordinates with the colour of the hotelsmile
Defo not those shoes, you need pretty shoes for that dress, I'll have a look.
When do you need them for?

cornsilk Sun 14-Jun-09 18:09:27

What about a kitten heel?

cornsilk Sun 14-Jun-09 18:12:11

lots of nice sandals on here

JustKeepSwimming Sun 14-Jun-09 18:20:00

Well i'm flying on wednesday so have to have them by then, and only really have tomorrow as shopping opportunity, and only the high st realistically.

will have a look at link now.

Take dress to Next and try it against their sandals. Look at the ivory ones, that would be nice with pink or the silver

sweetfall Sun 14-Jun-09 18:27:30

and monsoon

JustKeepSwimming Sun 14-Jun-09 18:28:07

Cornsilk - i could probably manage a kitten heel, if a bit wobbly!

Sweetfall - thanks, there are some v sparkly ones on there but either vertiginous or flat.

JustKeepSwimming Sun 14-Jun-09 18:31:34

how about these?

JustKeepSwimming Sun 14-Jun-09 18:34:54

these might be worth trying on to test the heel?

ok, do you by any chance live anywhere near any Asian sari/wedding clothes shops? I went to a Bangladeshi wedding a couple of years ago and got some gorgeous beaded mules with a smallish heel from the same place as my sari (and a matching bag too for that matter). They were about £20 and really pretty and everyone commented on them. Might be worth a try.

cornsilk Sun 14-Jun-09 19:35:43

No to both of the Monsoon

JustKeepSwimming Sun 14-Jun-09 19:44:28

Browntrout - good idea, but not that i know of, not nearby anyway.

Cornsilk - but why? i'm such a cr*p shopper and have no idea, i'm reliant on asking DH hmm or MN! grin

If you won't do monsoon, how about M&S e=UTF8&node=&m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&keywords=&mnSBrand=core&size=9&rh=n%3A210703031%2Cp%5F10%3ASilver&page =1
