I am 5 10 and don't realy want to tower over DH who is 5 9 at a wedding next weekend but equally don't want to wear flip flops (again)

I have this dress here

and I wonder what colour or style shoes you think would go with it?

something like this?

Ooh, they're nice but £100 out of my league!

You married a man. You didn't commit to never wearing heels again.

You do need something of a heel with that frock. Anything neutral and sandally would be fine.

I think I may well have signed something that says "I will not look like a twat towering over my hubby" but the idea of wearing heels after 7 years of flopflopness is very exciting

or these?

Bargain! gId=20552&storeId=12552&categoryId=51584&parent_category_rn=51581&productId=1275817&langId=-1These look like a good match.

I don't think you need heels- I agree that they do look amazing and I wear them at any opportunity, but I am also tall and sometimes I want to blend in, rather than teeter over everyone! (Only sometimes, other times I pop on the 5 inch heels and teeter to my heart's content! grin) Posh ballet flats or silver flat sandals would be fine IMO smile

Oops, stuffed up DP link.

They look smashing SilentBob, especially the DP ones. Ta!

Well I tried those DP flat ones on but unfortunately I looked like a stork, any ideas for some with a bit of a heel?
