Shoe Conundrum

I grabbed this dress off the Target sale rack and couldn't wait to wear it. I love the colors. Sadly, it's a bit short, but with the tights it wasn't too bad. And I just grabbed my sweater from yesterday to complete the look. I had a bit of shoe dilemma - more on that below.

What I Wore While Being Unsure of My Shoes:

2010-12-06 combo
  • dress (Target)
  • grey striped tights (Lane Bryant)
  • green T (Lane Bryant)
  • sweater (Theory via Marshalls)
  • necklace & earrings (Rainbow)
  • green suede pumps (Two Lips)
  • brooch (St. Vincent de Paul Thrift)
So here was my shoe issue. I started out with the grey suede flats but after I took my pictures I thought it looked a little jeuvenile in the playback. So I swaped out for these pumps. But once I saw the pics full size on my computer, I think I should have stuck with the flats. What do you think?

I think the pumps were the way to go. I think the flats accent the shortness of the skirt, and are similar enough to the color of the tights that they take away from the outfit.

Cute dress!

I think they're both cute, but I prefer the flats because they don't have the ankle strap. If the heels were not strap pumps that would be best.


Definitely the pumps. They pick up and accentuate the green in the dress. They also lengthen your legs. And the color pops--very nice contrast to the blue and gray.

Tina, you always look fabulous! Of the two pairs of shoes, I think you made the right choice with the green ones, but honestly I think both are too similar in color to the tights. Maybe black or some totally incongruous bright color would have worked better?

Honestly I would have gone for a different shoe all together and darker tights.

The gray almost look white and I hate white hose.

I think darker tight with dark shoe in the same tone would have been the way to go.

Super cute dress. Maybe navy tights and and either shoe? I'm so partial to pumps, however, so I choose the green.

I like the pumps! Such a lovely color and texture.

I much prefer the pumps, myself. I think you made the right call.

The pumps are better, boots would have been fabulous. Maybe it's the picture but I agree with previous commenters, darker tights would be better with this.

Agreeing with the above ladies, I think darker tights and a pump without an ankle strap would give you the longest leg. Cute dress though!

I like the heels better than the flats, but the ankle strap seems a little tight. Was it hurting at all? It's really hard to find the right show with light hose like that -- you did very well!

The pumps get my vote, althought the flats are cute too. As a previous poster recommended, maybe navy tights? Love the dress! I also love the b and w dress in the other post. Can you just crop the too-tight sleeves if they are not tight all the way to the top?
