BUMP! hope that's OK? There was a question on 'post your shoes' regarding what shoes would be best with a dress. Someone suggested this thread be created hence the bump.

I scored these Chloe platform oxfords (the slightly shorter, non-runway version, that is) during the winter sales, and I could use some help with what to wear with them! I'd like to get some wear out of them while it's still cold out. My first instinct is to go for the dress + tights + overcoat + shoes, but that seems so expected. Any other suggestions?

Ankle length jeans and an oversized sweater?

I'd wear them with baggy or bootcut trousers / jeans, or tights and a shorter skirt. A really pretty floral dress would be quite a good contrast too, keep it short.

cutxpaste...did you ever find anything to wear with this dress? I would probably go for something that is a teal or purple color to accent the flowers of the dress, like these:

ILC, that's a FANTASTIC match. good eye

I have a wedding in Newport, RI next weekend at the beach under a tent. I'm wearing my either wearing my Dries Van Noten dress or my Chloe dress. how about the silver Dries shoes with both? keep in mind I'll be on grass most of the time. I'm afraid a sandal would be too casual.

ILC, those are lovely but so out of my price range. I ended up getting some very nice pump patent leather HIGH pumps with a black lacquered heel

LuckyMe - since you're going to be on grass, perhaps a wedge would be more practical than a heel, in a material that won't be damaged by moisture?

Me thinks you linked the wrong image. All I see is one part of one leg badly in need of a razor.

luckyme, i like the idea of those with the dresses, and the heel should be substantial enough for grass.

Well, in my opinion, evening always demands heels, even if only 2" or 3". As to color, gold, silver or maybe pearl white.
