Surely Silver Birkies will be fine?

It's still a kids sports day - not Ascot!


Beetroot · 06/06/2006 12:34

SoupDragon · 06/06/2006 12:34

How about a wedge heeled sandal. You were wearing some lovely ones the other w/e at in-laws bash. Why do you think flat? Think ballet flats would be prettier with a dress than birkies. What colour are they?
