Dear ESB: Do these shoes go with my dress?
I've been searching for shoes for my wedding in November. I'm not a bride-y bride and all my friends keep sending me generic, ivory satin wedding shoes I'll never wear again. I came across these Elizabeth & James shoes this week.
I love them but one of my bridesmaids says they don't go with my dress. I think they do... maybe I'm crazy. I'm really starting to get fed up with their opinions because they just have such different taste than me.
Sometimes I feel like shouting, "It's not your wedding!"
I really value your opinion because your taste is anything but generic. I've attached a photo of the shoes next to my dress - if you agree that it's just not a good match maybe you can point me in the right direction?
I hate to say it, but your bridesmaid is right.
The macrame lace-ups exude a kind of boho dork chic, while the dress is classically romantic. It's an odd juxtaposition.
I think you should go with a really gorgeous pair of classic black pumps. Has anyone seen a really gorgeous pair lately?
