My engagement pictures are in one week and I’m having a hard time finding shoes that “go” with my outfit. I’m planning to wear this dress (talbots catalog):
with this belt (asos.com):
Now for the tricky part- shoes. I can’t decide! I’m thinking something gold, to match the belt. Should I go with flats? Sandals? Wedges? Help!!!
I’m leaning towards trying these (Nine West Koukla Slingback Sandals). What do you think? Any suggesions would be appreciated!

The dress is super-cute!
The shoes are fine, and you are right to choose a heel, but for my taste–which isn’t to say that mine is the pinnacle of taste!–they’re a bit too matchy with the belt. I personally would go wtih something like a platform sandal in a butterscotch or nude leather (bear in mind, these examples are sort of on the fly so they’re examples of the feel, even if the actual shoe’s not quite right!),
or if you like things a little more feminine, a peep-toe pump, slingback, or wedge in perhaps a fun color that could set off your dress (cobalt blue, yellow, even shades of coral or pink might be fun–you’d have to experiment 🙂 http://www.talbots.com/online/browse/product_details.jsp?id=prdi28659&rootCategory=cat70016&catId=cat1250052&sortKey=Default§ion=Regular&conceptIdUnderSale=cat70016′ defer=’defer
you could try something fun, like a hit of animal print (leopard or snakeskin)
And you can never go wrong with something nude since it’s innocuous, blends in, and makes your leg look longer!

Thanks so much for the advice so far! I love the idea of doing a colorful pump, but I’m a little worried that I’ll wish I had done something more classic later. I added a few more options to the poll. Keep the votes and suggestions coming 🙂

I think some simple gold wedges would really set the colour of the dress off!
And, wedges mean you wouldn’t run the risk of sinking into the grass if you take some outside shots!
