for those of you who've seen my Oscar de la Renta dress post, you'll see that it's not a typical wedding dress.

I'm having the hardest time picking shoes, jewelry, and whether I should wear my hair up or down. Decisions decisions.....

Colors of wedding are neutral gray and peach, with accents of plum, gold, and silver.

It's a city wedding.

And, I've been torn between a pair of purple shoes, cream ivory shoes, and black shoes.

Purple: suede miu mius with interesting abstract bow at the the top of the toe area
Cream: badgley mischka "lacie" with a bling brooch at top of toe area
Black: badgleys again, but in black


Q: are black shoes bad luck?
And... Any other shoe recommendations?
Which would you pick?

Sorry no links cuz I'm on an iPad!

Help?

I really have to see the shoes and dress to decide!

You can still cut and paste a link on iPad.

Here I just did one below:

Pannini good to see you around! I remember you from a while ago--I think we studied similar subjects? Regardless, good to see you! :wavey:

thanks mrswahs,

i'm excited for the badgleys..... but i think the black badgleys are more useful for future wear.... but is it true that black shoes are bad luck?

hi IndyLady!

i think we studied the same thing... was it Org Behavior? i've been MIA due to all the heavy studying, job hunting, and wedding planning all rolled up into one huge ball. now that i have a job, i finished my MA degree, and moved into a new home, i am finally (barely) ready to start plan for the big wedding.

=)

Frankly, I would wear the same veil and necklace they put on you in the store, if you can afford it (I remember the necklace was also ODLR, so perhaps it's too pricey, in which case I would look for a statement piece as similar as possible).

Then, very little jewelry on the rest of your body.

I would go with the Badgley Mischka shoes in cream. With so much "look" (in a good way), there's no need to do colored shoes. Plus, I don't like the sturdy heel for a wedding shoes, practical as it may be.

I agree with mscushion on all counts!

thank you! you're right... the dress has such a "look" to it, adding something like purple shoes might fight the look of the dress.

returning those damn miu mius stat. they were way outta my budget anyway, but i thought they were a good tie in with the color palette of the wedding. only because i see wedding blogs showing girls pulling up the skirt of their gown and lovely pops of colorful shoes peeking out.

sigh.

Don't you worry, you'll have enough style for three blog posts with that dress. :love:

Btw I'm now vacillating between a pair of blush suede pumps and the black badgleys linked earlier above.... Now which one?!


Black satin w bling, blush suede with abstract bow, or ivory satin?!?!?! :confused:

I really don't see suede with your dress, sorry :(

The black Badgleys are very nice. But I'd still stick with the cream. That's just me, though!
