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

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
