I agonised over choosing a dress, now I am getting my knickers in a twist over shoes... here are some I am considering, please judge away grin.

Going to wear with a cream dress with navy spots, I am only 5 foot, so want as much height as possible, prefer a sturdier heel/platform/wedge...
option 1


option 3

option 4

and option 5 - poss my favourite so far

I like them all except No1.

Which is helpful.

suwoo Fri 19-Jun-09 22:06:33

I like them all too and would need to see the dress to decide fully. I am with you though and like number 5 a lot

brokenspacebar Fri 19-Jun-09 22:11:45

well number 1 is out, because they are not in my size (and thephantom doesn't like them wink )

I am scared to post a link to the dress in case it is criticised <wimp> ... they would also be for wearing with blue linen trousers and anything else really that is in my wardrobe.

Has anyone got dune shoes? I have only tried them on in the distant past and think they are quite slim fitting?

5 are lovely, my faves. You could get a lot of use out of them as they will go with much more things than just the red ones will, plus they look quite unusual, the red ones are quite fashion-ey and you see ones like that everywhere (but nice tho, I love red shoes!) smile

I have Dune shoes, I find them slim fitting and small. I'm a 6 but have to by a 7 in Dune, dunno if that is just me though?

nobodysfool Fri 19-Jun-09 22:14:34

Def no.5.So cute.

brokenspacebar Fri 19-Jun-09 22:16:54

Holy, you are probably right, I aM ALSo very partial to a pair of red shoes.... would the white in option 5 mean I have to get a different dress i.e is that tiny wee bit of white going to be wrong with cream (in the dress)...?

brokenspacebar Fri 19-Jun-09 22:18:59

I might try a 5 (I am usually a five in fly shoes, which I find quite generous...)

HolyGuacamole Fri 19-Jun-09 22:24:24

I wouldn't say so but I'm not an expert, I'd defo wear them with cream if it were me as it's only a tiny bit of white smile

brokenspacebar Fri 19-Jun-09 22:27:48

Now, I just need to justify spending that amount of money, when I have been rather reckless this week with money... but needs must and all that.... and it is for a special occasion and well cost per wear will make them a positive bargain....

VinoEsmeralda Fri 19-Jun-09 22:29:18

2,4 or 5 (5 will go well with a lot of outfits,dont worry about the tiny bit of white)

brokenspacebar Fri 19-Jun-09 22:33:09

cheers everyone, when I order them tomorrow (must sleep on it) and they arrive, I will bravely post a picture of the shoes with the dress and see what you all think.

BunnyLebowski Fri 19-Jun-09 22:33:26

Number 5 definitely

1 and 3 are too clumpy

2 are ok but the pointy toe is a bit passe imo.

I don't like 4 but then I don't like any shoes of that style that are so trendy at the minute.

Your dress sounds very classic - I think pair number 5 would look great!

brokenspacebar Fri 19-Jun-09 22:35:51

I like your name BL! Have an image of the Dude blowing on your toe nails to dry them.

Off to watch a film with dh...bbl

BunnyLebowski Fri 19-Jun-09 22:39:36

grin grin

tigerdriver Fri 19-Jun-09 22:45:13

4 or 5, the rest are a bit <<whispers>> frumpy, although obviously bright. I like 4 best but am in a minority of one here!

modernart Fri 19-Jun-09 22:54:05

I like 4 best too tiger.

I don't like the faux wood heel on 5.

brokenspacebar Fri 19-Jun-09 23:37:40

I do really like the carvela (option 4) too, I liked them in the blue as well but they are not available in blue in my size.... I am a bit unsure how leg shortening they may be, on my already short but shapely pins?

cornsilk Fri 19-Jun-09 23:48:03

Number 5.

pickyvic Sat 20-Jun-09 00:19:06

id say 5 too from the description of your dress but have to say i may be in a minority but i loved option 1! but id go with 5 for the navy blue in the dress....definately 5!

(fab taste btw!)

pickyvic Sat 20-Jun-09 00:20:25

forgot to ask....whats the occasion?

brokenspacebar Sat 20-Jun-09 13:57:34

thank you pickyvic, I am mostly buying them for a wedding, but also (very rare) nights out too, to glam up my rather plain taste in clothes!

I could do with a bag and necklace/bracelet too, that might be another thread?

andlipsticktoo Sat 20-Jun-09 14:47:58

I like -Off-White-Red/

I am a big fan of fly shoes!

From your choices I'd def choose 5.
