cute shoes! :)

I think she'll be fine in her outfit. 


I'm still pushing for some color somewhere in the outfit, but then again I wear these shoes on a regular basis, so I may be a little biased

The dress and shoes should look really good together. I disagree with other posters who think the dress is to "bridey" to wear to a wedding. It in no way resembles a wedding dress and no one could look at someone wearing that outfit and say, "Gee, she's trying to upstage the bride!"

I think your daughter made a good choice.

What have you got? Is it food? Is it for me? I want it whatever it is!

PastryGoddess -- way back when I was young, before I had kids, I would have been all over the shoes that you've posted! I was either wearing 5-6 inch heels or barefoot. Stylish heels were my trademark. Jeans with heels? Yeah, I was cool. 8)

I miss those days.


I'm a bit surprised that the DDs don't go for the high heeled shoes. But they never saw me wear them.




I do love your style! ;D

Thank you.

I think she'll look lovely. I hope she has a lot of fun!
"Can't do anything with children, can you?" the woman said.

Poirot thought you could, but forebore to say so.

The shoes are cute!

I still think the peach is too close to a flesh tone to set off the cream color of the dress enough for it to be appropriate. I was raised that you don't wear white to a wedding, at all (unless it is something with a pattern to it, like a white dress with polka dots, stripes, or a floral of some sort).

And even though the dress doesn't look like a bridal gown, it's still a bridal color. I attended a wedding over the summer where a guest wore an ivory pantsuit to the wedding. It was a pair of pants, and a jacket. It was a lovely outfit. It in no way resembled a bridal gown. But people still talked. Mainly because the woman that wore the pantsuit was the Mother of the Groom, but they would have talked no matter what.

It's a lovely ensemble and i think she will look gawjus!

I disagree with those who think it's too bridey- the sleeves are definitely peach and not anywhere near white/cream and the dress itself has the peach layer and it's not really a "bridal dress" style. hope she has a great time!
