Also, I have this pair of heels (http://www.kaboodle.com/reviews/softspots-nessa-black--t-straps-dress-shoes) that I'm thinking of wearing at the wedding. It's going to be a backyard sort of garden affair, and it's the only pair of heels I can wear for hours without feeling like I'm dying, so I'm thinking it'll do.

Damn, y'all are going to boot me off here for negativity, but sweetie, NO. I have really bad feet. There are dressy shoes I can wear. Cole Haan makes elegant pumps with Air Nike technology in the footbed, explore on Zappos. We will not let you get married in those. :angryfire

I'm with PRLady, no way you can get married in those... :yikes: We will pitch in to take up a collection to help you hem your dress before that happens LOL. :lol:

Poor Anita, but I'm with PRlady and Nancy -- those shoes are NOT to be wed in -- especially wearing your lovely formal gown! (Quick, delete that link before PL sees them!) :lol:

My niece is a bit taller than her husband and she didn't want to tower over him during the wedding so she spent a lot of time trying to find shoes that would work. She ended up wearing actual white kid ballet flats (Capezio) that she embellished with some lace and sequin appliques. They barely showed with her dress -- and she wore them from the wedding at 2:00 straight through the last dance at the reception sometime past midnight. :)

Hemming your dress would also eliminate those slight marks left at the hem, too, wouldn't it? With all the money you saved on the dress itself, the alterations shouldn't be a major expense.

No, these shoes are a big no-no.

If you look here for instance:
http://www.lightinthebox.com/ns/under-1_v2782t0+1-1-3-4_v2783t0/wedding_v2858t0/shoes_c3349
there are tons of shoes that have no heel at all or a very small heel which should be comfortable enough.

I feel you with shoes - I get blisters in all shoes and heel hurt my ankles but these small heels if you chose shoes with enough side support will work well. Trust me!

Those of you who have known me for a while on this board, know that I am a card-carrying SashaFan. However, I frequently question her fashion choices.

For instance, this: https://twitter.com/#!/SashaCohenNYC/media/slideshow?url=pic.twitter.com%2FSgbpfbf9

This is perfectly cute outfit. On someone of cruisin's height. Sasha is barely 5'2". So all that trendy color blocking is breaking up the visual height and the somewhat full skirt ads to her width which she cannot afford being so short.

Don't like that at all. I actually don't think it would look good on anyone.



And my dear co-religionist, it's not so nice to be taller and wearing even two-inch heels if the men in your ethnic group are all short. Even if you're not looking to date them, they get antsy when women look down on them. Literally.

They do! When I was working in NY at the ad agency, all of the men in my creative group were shorter than me (without heels). I rarely wore heels, because I felt uncomfortable. But, one day I did, and the comment I got from the creative director was - "Aren't you tall enough?" I now get that he had the problem, but I was 26 at the time and self conscious.

PRLady, you are absolutely right! Anita, you cannot wear those shoes! Cole Haan Nike technology are so comfortable, even when they are high. They make bridal shoes, maybe you could find some on sale. Or, get the dress shortened and wear a ballet flat, they come in white satin. I can't imagine the cost for hemming would be very high.

I could see a very tall, very leggy blonde pulling it off to wear to work.

:rofl: I went away, came back, and find that FSU now has fashion police.

However this looks to be a consensus intervention.

We've always had fashion police here. That's why I love the Oscar Red Carpet threads. As good as the actual Fashion Police. :lol:

But dissing movie stars, or skaters for that matter, is different than bossing each other around.

True. And I hope Anita18 is not offended. We mean well.

Have to chime in on this one. Anita - you scored big on the dress. Let these ladies help you find shoes that will do it justice.

This (http://m.zappos.com/clarks-cynthia-eleve-nude-patent-leather) looks comfy. Is it dressy enough? If only these (http://m.zappos.com/gabriella-rocha-dancy-nude-patent) were more tan. These (http://m.zappos.com/cole-haan-air-juliana-pump-75-nougat-patent) look nice, maybe the cove color will work though I'm iffy because there's no strap.

Here is my criteria for the shoes: heels no higher than 3 inches, ankle strap or some sort of strap close to the ankle, something I can wear with other outfits like dressy jeans/sundresses, and under $200. Is that possible? :lol: Now if I can't find nude shoes what other colors should I look at?

We really aren't bossing anyone around. Anita can do as she pleases. However, she must understand that we will tie her down and remove those shoes, if need be :lol:! Or, at least spray paint them white!
