cavanaugh, your avatar is wonderful.

I wore the blue/grey Dries dress with the silver shoes and it was perfect match for the weather this weekend in newport and the tone of the wedding. it always impresses me how Dries can make a 4" heel so darn comfortable that I can stand in them for hours, not many achieve that.

taintedinnocence, I can't see the image through the link, maybe post a picture instead of the link?

Suggest something in White or Silver.
I'd wear a covered style will work better to play down the feminine floral motifs myself.

It's a lovely dress by the way!

thanks guys, the dress and shoes were the right choice. it was a gorgeous spring night on the water. my husband agreed on the Dries dress, he commented that the Chloe was more suited for formal wear.

anyone else having a "pairing" dilemma?

bridesmaids dress
help! - i am in a wedding this summer and the bride is deciding what shoes for us to wear. one of the bridesmaids wants us to wear dyeable shoes - yikes!
i am trying to talk her out of it, but i need more suggestions...
here is the dress - the color is palomino (champagne) and the wedding colors are shades of pink (our flowers) and gold.

what i suggested was a strappy gold sandal. any other ideas....imo - the dress is very structured and therefore needs a less structured shoe. does that make sense?
tia!

tashkent cole wedge boots in canvas

the natural answer is to wear these with skinny jeans or pants. can anyone think of more interesting ways to wear them?

mona, strappy gold sandal would be perfect, and yes I agree delicate is better with a structured dress. talk her out of dyed shoes, please...

porkchop,I could see those with a pencil skirt and tights maybe even a colored sock.

porkchop - I wonder how those would look with something like this:


style.com

Otherwise, like luckyme said, any sort of pencil skirt would likely look nice with the shoes.

Oh yeah, I probably should have mentioned that I'm 5'2", petite everywhere, and not blessed in the leg department.

I generally steer clear of pencil skirts because I'm short, so I'm not sure about that one.

I never even thought of colored socks, tights, or quirky dresses. All those are really cute.

I know how you feel; I'm 5'1" myself.

I just bought these boots, in the light grey suede!! Ever since I saw Sienna Miller sport those Anna Oliveri Grey suede tie ankle boots, I've been sweating a similar pair ever since, and these look pretty similar IMO...

In addition to skinny jeans, I think they would look great with a cute minidress or shift dress and tights...

Just wanted to comment, they are not necessarily the end of the world, though you certainly can't wear them again--and why throw money away like that? For my sister's wedding, we wore emerald green raw silk, and raw silk shoes to match. The deal I had with my sister was, nothing I wore could be ugly--and none of it was. And for the record, though it was a beautiful dress (actually, top and long skirt), I was never able to do anything with it either.

If you can agree on gold, I don't see why you couldn't just all wear your own strappy sandals. Remember when the actresses on thirtysomething couldn't agree to wear the same dress (they were all completely different incl color), and that episode won the wardrobe Emmy?
