So I am on a rehearsal outfit kick and earlier I chose a dress based on a poll that was in favor of that dress. I am liking these Naughty Monkey Hollywood platforms in Silver to go with it. Does it match or not?
Here are the shoes:
Here is the dress:
Does it work or not? Be brutal, be honest! Thanks!

It does match but i think its too matchy. personally I would go for a shoe in one color

I think they take attention away from the dress, which by the way is great!!!

I’m not a fan of the chunky wedged shoe with that dress. I would go with a more simpler and elegant shoe. It looks like silver or gold would both go well with the dress.

Hm, so being too matched up is a bad thing?

Yes, too matchy. Going with one color would look great. I’d pull out the yellow/gold color for some pop, because the other colors are neutrals.

I think it’s too much metallic. I think wedges would be a great option, but maybe cork/silver or white or cream or something. But…it also depends on how sparkly they are in real life, and not just in the picture. If they’re more subtle, they work.

Rather than pick a color that will pop, I would choose a nude shoe. It will make your legs look a million miles long, and make the woman wearing the dress pop, which is what you really want.

Go with a more simple shoe with that dess, I’d say.

Ok, so the nude shoe is a good idea. With this getup it sounds like I’m going to look like a Vegas Hooker. Eeeeee.

As I am still drawn to the shoes (despite what I may look like in the end) I’m still curious about the people that voted it was a good match. Can anyone that voted that way voice why they think so? I’ve just heard all the reasons for the Nays and while that is valid, I’d like to hear why people voted Yea. =)

I’ll play devil’s advocate here: they certainly go together if you want a thematically cohesive look. You can dub it “Vegas Hooker” if you like, but the point is, they could be costumed together. The colors are complimentary, and metallics are neutrals anyway. It may be a bit much for some of our tastes, but the look works in and of itself. It sounds like you really want the shoes, so just trust yourself and get them!
