Want some shoes to wear with new dress that look pretty but slightly funky rather than overly dressy.

emmatmg Thu 26-May-05 14:26:57

TBh, the description sounds awful.........can you do a link?

emmatmg Thu 26-May-05 14:28:55

I'll wait to see the picture than comment again.

Marina Thu 26-May-05 14:29:27

Well I've got no taste either then Enid because I think they sound great
But let's go and check that for sure...

Enid Thu 26-May-05 14:34:15

I cant find them on the clarks website

they have rope espadrille wedge heels and gold leather straps.

Enid Thu 26-May-05 14:34:39

we dont have much choice down here and I need them TODAYYYYYYYYYYY

emmatmg Thu 26-May-05 14:36:50

IMHO gold leather looks a bit cheap and tacky, and teamed up with espadrilles.........ewwwwwww


what is the dress like?

Enid Thu 26-May-05 14:37:46

raspberry pink crumpled silk, bias cut, v-neck, cap sleeve, below the knee, floppy flower corsage on one shoulder

emmatmg Thu 26-May-05 14:40:11

The dress sounds lovely and I'm not just saying that to dig myself out a hole

And on reading the description of the dress I defo say no to the shoes.

northerner Thu 26-May-05 14:41:45

Hmmm. I'm thinking no to those shoes with that dress also.

bundle Thu 26-May-05 14:42:12

what about some flat jewelled slipper things?

emmatmg Thu 26-May-05 14:42:44

Phew, thanks northerner.......

Enid Thu 26-May-05 14:43:19

jewelled slipper things lovely but I really want a bit of a heel, but NOT kitten heels

emmatmg Thu 26-May-05 14:43:32

Enid Thu 26-May-05 14:44:27

the dress is from a boutiquey shop here, made by Sandwich

Enid Thu 26-May-05 14:44:47

got to go in a minute...

oliveoil Thu 26-May-05 14:45:31

Wedges are in at the mo, but no to espadrilley things, they look like horse fodder.

No, go for strappy wedges methinks. Maybe in a colour to match or contrast the dress.

What shops have you got a choice of? Do you have a Schuu or Office?

emmatmg Thu 26-May-05 14:45:59

have they not got anything there?

slipper thingys would look lovley I think. Hmmmmmm need a heel though..........

When is the night out?
