Which Shoes?

I'm in the home stretch with the dress - this is a fitting before sewing up the basting for the last time - ignore wrinkles! But I don't know which shoes to wear, so I need your input. This is my favorite pair of black heels, though they get a bit tiresome after a long evening.



Don't forget about my roach-stompers - Dean's LEAST favorite shoe, though actually reasonably comfortable. It's kind of bronzey-gold and you can compare it with the black heel.



I don't think the clear one looks dressy enough - it looks like I'm barefooted and I don't have time to get a pedicure! And this gold-ish one - I bought this pair years ago in Boston and wore them once. They got all kinds of comments but the ties came undone and fell around my ankles after a night of walking around. Dean thinks this is the best color but says they make my feet look like skis because they're so long.



The straps may be too much with the dress.



Once my mom helps me with the final stages (and hemming - God love that woman!), I'll post some more pictures and do a formal review at PR. I'm only concerned because the back now is poofy like one reviewer mentioned, and that lady had to take out horizontal darts to fix it - ACK!

I vote for the black heels :)
I think it would make a very nice outfit accessorized with black necklace /purse...

Love the color!! I think it looks good and I'm not seeing the back poofing. I like the roach stompers best, but the black look nice, too, and would be easiest to accessorize around.

I love the black look the best since we're coming into fall winter - otherwise I would recommend the clear ones:) In addition, I agree with you - I just can't deal with ties around the ankle for some reason - they are so cute - but NEVER stay up!

Great dress!

P.S. Roach stompers are not bad - and you know that bronzy look is in right now.

Black shoe wins - thanks for your help! Now after my upcoming lecture and pack meeting, I hope to get back to reading your blogs and sewing up that fleece jacket,

I like the black ones in the first picture the best. Good job on the dress! I like the color on you.
