I’ve been lurking about for the past month and a half (since the day or so after i got engaged and stumbled on to this gem of a site!) Now i’m needing some assistance please.
Here’s my deilmma- I found my dress lickity split (here is is– mine is ivory though, not white) This dress makes me feel like I’ve slipped into one of my Great-granny’s dresses and slipped back in time. And it just makes me Smile.
I’m just a hair under 5’10” and wearing heels (which I LOVE) will put me towerng over my Fiance. Add to that we’re geting married outside in the grass, and I need to find flats or sandals. I don’t want “just anything”– but I’m stumped and don’t know if I should go with color or more plain. Any help/advice is greatly appriciated.

With that dress, I’d wear silver flats to pick up the silver embellishments on the waist.
Gorgeous dress, btw. I tried that one on, too!

I wish that dress had been out when I was dress hunting. ^_^ I agree–silver embellished flats or sandals would be great with that dress.
I’m not sure what your budget is, but here are some cute silver sandals from zappos.com
My sister has an adorable pair of flat, silver Rocket Dog sandals.

PiperLime.com has some great options too but I like these the best: embellished flats http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=36915&vid=1&pid=691311&scid=691311002

I would go with flats or a very small kitten heel sandal. Whatever you pick should be very feminine- I like the piperlime flats that spinningjenny picked out.

I freaking love your dress!!! It’s absolutely gorgeous!
Normally I’m a fan of a fun colored shoe. But, I think a simple silver flat or slinky silver sandal would go great with this dress.

Thank you Thank you Thank you! Such great finds and help! I love the Frankies on Piperlime.
And thank you for the compliments on my dress- I adore it. and I can’t wait to wear it- it just exudes the feeling of the wedding- very family, vintage-esque details and yet jsut a little bit modern.
