Today, I had my second fitting. I am so excited about my dress! I feel so sassy in it!
I need advice on a few things: 1) should I wear a crinoline under the dress to make it flare more and 2) are my shoes ok with the dress? (I am concerned because they are a dark ivory)… please excuse my icky toes- lol
Here are some pics and thanks for any advice!

I think adding a crinoline would be a great addition but it looks great as is!
the shoes look ok from a distance but in the up front picture I dont think they work 🙁 SORRY maybe purple ones to match your sash? or white? or lace?

I don’t think you can go wrong one way or another with the crinoline! I love the dress, and I love the purple sash!
As for the shoes, how would you feel about a colorful shoe?

I think a purple shoe would work better. And the dress can be either way. Just depends on how much poof you want

I knew it!
I could just cry right now…
Originally, I bought ‘dyeable’ shoes and took them to the shoe shop to be dyed… He RUINED them…. he insists that the color purple that I chose is too hard to dye… I have been looking all over the internet for some purple shoes that are a similar color with NO LUCK…
I love the shoes, but they just don’t work!

Yes to crinoline, a BIG no to the shoes, sorry.

Yes to the crinoline. It’s so pretty too!
I thought you’d be able to pull off the shoes until I saw the up close picture. Perhaps find shoes to match your sash if you’re keeping it?!

Where did you get your sash? Maybe the bridal salon that sells the sash could dye the shoes purple to match? I would think if they can make a sash that color they could make a shoe that color? I just love the idea of the purple shoes for you! The dress is beautiful and that extra poof from the crinoline would just make it lay so beautifully!

I agree with everyone else, the shoes are a no. Definitely try to find one the color of your sash. To me, thats what great about a short dress… Being able to show of the shoes! So go find a nice, fun pair! =)

@Keisha In Love: I agree with everyone suggesting purple shoes and let me also say, I *love* your dress and it looks amazing on you! It’s my dress, too! I’m torn between a sash with color and shoes in the same color, or a sash to match the dress with only the shoes as a bit of color. I love that the sash ties in the front! It looks way better than the tie in the back, I hadn’t even thought of switching the placement up.

I’m with the other bees — purple shoes would look great!
