I am going to a ball this weekend, I have the ballgown (same one as last year but different people there!). Last year I wore a pair of strappy shoes with it that matched the colour of the gown. The only problem was that they had a small heel on and as I am quite tall, the front of my shoes showed under the bottom of the dress - i think the heel just made it look the tiniest bit too short.
So... this year, I want to wear completely falt shoes. The dress is below in a dark red/wine colour. Gem is colour on website, but it looks deeper red in the flesh.
I have a pair of unworn black satin jewelled flip flop shoes....do you think that I will get away with these in the slight chance anyone sees them under the dress? They are dressy but not too much. I would take a black satin bag too if I could wear them.
What do you think to both black shoes with the dress and also with them being flip flop style?
Wouldn't wear flip flops with a ball gown as they will end up being seen at some point - what on earth is wrong with the front of your shoes being seen? Ankles, yes, looks wrong, but not the toe of the shoe. Particularly if they're the same colour...
Yep, they're perfect, and I think a black bag will look absolutely fine with it all. If it makes you feel a bit more co-ordinated you could always wear a jet necklace or ear-rings. Def no flip flops though - promise us.
Update....you know I wasnt happy with those shoes.
I went shopping at weekend and bought some more in black with a slightly smaller heel. They are lovely and what a flippin bargain..reduced from 45quid to 16! Result! Ball is this Friday so all set now.
