Summer party dress - June 30th 2010, 09:36 AM

I've got a summer party at work next Thursday and I'm going shopping with one of the girls I work with at the weekend, thinking I don't have a nice summer party dress - not too smart, not too casual.
I just found a dress I bought a while ago, it's really nice, bandeau and fitted at the waist, kinda short and made of like a floaty net material. Only problem is that it's black.
I really love the dress, do people think it would work if I got pastel shoes?
Maybe something like this:

http://www.newlook.com/shop/womens/s...estSellerScore
http://www.newlook.com/shop/womens/s...heel_190980779

Or other option ... don't wear black and get a new dress?? Which for the record, I'd rather not cos I do kinda need to save :/

Thanks

Wear whatever you want really.

If you feel like you need to buy a new dress at the end of the day then do so. I don't know about in London or the UK for that matter but in the US we have a store called Ross and it is a store with designer clothes that are overstock from the store or has minor damage to it that sells really cute things for really cheap. I just recently bought like 9 dresses from this place for 40 dollars and if I bought them at the store it would have been like 200.
If you have a store like this then Id say go for it. But if your not looking to spend money then wear the black dress and I would actually say buy a bright color shoe instead of nude pastel.

Another great idea, is if you have a friend the same size as you or somewhat close to your size more so on the little bit bigger side then ask to borrow a dress from her, if they have a nice summery dress. If it is a little bit too big you can always nip and tuck away at it to fit you proper without out sewing it.


Always remember to put your happiness first.

The first ones would work as long as you coordinate with some similar accessories.

I absolutely love nude colored heels with pretty much any color dress.. but especially black! It's really popular right now, and I think it looks really pretty. I like the first two the best. Have fun at the party!

I love the last pair but is the dress kind of fancy? Like got lots going on? If so get the plainer shoes, the second pair (and they'll go with everything if you're looking to save money). If the dress is plain-ish then I'd go with the last pair.

A black dress can be made really exciting with accessories, maybe get a chunky necklace and a bangle and a bag? But if you're wearing chunky necklace remembering to tone down the earings. Accessories are always a great investment for me and I think there are a few sales going on at the moment! Shame you just missed the 20% sale on new look shoes.

Religion is like a penis.
It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.
