HELP !What color shoes to wear with forest green & white ruffled dress??



Recommended Posts

I'm the 'stand in person' at the last moment to take my 89 year old MIL to see Phantom of the Opera at the Bass Hall here in Fort Worth. The dress is LEGIT forest green and has white twisting vine/flower things on it. I'm freaked out as I absolutely have no idea what color shoes to wear with this color combo.

I only have my extra large black sandals (not nice enough for the event) that I wear as my feet swell..and um...another pair of black sandals, slightly nicer.

Do I try to find what...nude/tan shoes? silver shoes? White shoes (did the whole 'don't wear white after Labor Day' finally go away? Serious legit head explosion going to happen...the event is this coming Saturday so i have roughly 4 days to find shoes. I just bought this dress for this occasion and hate the idea of scrapping it.

Help all you fabulous DIVA and OOTD savvy dressing ladies!!

What colour bag or clutch? I think white, with a white clutch bag or gold or silver, with a matching bag. Sounds lovely. I hope you have a lovely time. Xxx

I'd go with shoes to match your skin tone. Totally appropriate and you'll get a lot more opportunities to wear them.

Have a great time!

OK, ladies! After unearthing all of my clutches/evening bags and even one purse that I think is oversized for the occasion..and it has a gold embellishment...as does one of the small oops Anne Klein evening bag/mini purse.

I had thought about going the 'silver route' The 2 evening bags that I have, however are black with silver. They are pictured. I also have a Chanel bag that is brand new and it has silver accents where the handles attach.

Then I found 2 pairs of shoes that are not my 'daily run down sandals'. I think the color of the one pair is more of a 'pewter'...unsure if this would look ok..i.e. not silver..when they are on my feet. The other pair is completely black ..they are not super comfortable but I could probably stand them for a 2.5 hour show. I may have to see if my feet will fit into them....but this is a general idea of what I have.

I am prepared to go get a pair of shoes tonight if it doesn't look like these will work, there are a few places having decent sales. My MIL is a very...semi high society lady and while we had our differences when I was younger. I've grown to appreciate her and love her. I adored my FIL and like my parents...I miss them all so very much.

The one other thing I realized today is that the very last time I went to Bass Hall was with my Mom to see Susan Boyle sing. This was right when her dementia was starting in (we didn't know it yet)..so it is going to be hard in some ways to walk back in there.

Anyways, back to decisions, decisions...I'm hoping some pics may help. I truly appreciate everyone's help with this. I

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
