I have bought this dress to wear to a wedding on Saturday. Wedding is DH's distant friend, part of a group that used to go out years back. I don't really know any of them and am 5 years older than dh, so want to look nice although I'm about half a stone overweight for me at the moment. I'm 5'2 and a size 12 - not sure if that's important? I have tried on some high heeled tan shoes, but feel they're just not quite right. Any suggestions, please? (Just about to do bath time, so away from this for a while, but would be v grateful for suggestions, hopefully not too expensive, as likely to be a seldom worn outfit!)
I tried black and that didn't look right either, although not the right sort of shoe, which might be the problem. Loving the Debenhams shoes, but haven't got the confidence to wear them with that dress. It is a really flattering dress as it totally disguises my tummy, while making my boobs look huge, drawing attention away from everything else! I didn't say before, I'm wearing a cherry red shrug (also Bravissimo) with it, hence the tan shoes. And I hadn't even thought about a bag yet, yikes
Hadn't considered silver! I bought some red shoes today from Next, but they are more orangey / tomato red, whereas the shrug is more cherry / pinky red, so they clash, but are hopefully far enough apart to not look too bad. Anyway, I don't know why I'm so bothered, it's a wedding, all eyes will be on the bride!
