Ladies…Please help me with shoes…I have this dress to wear to my husband’s annual gala but I haven’t gotten shoes yet. I’m short and always go for a high heel but what I’m finding right now is the heels they have are really high! I like the idea of a glitter shoe (like the purse that is pictured) but I will be doing a lot of walking and not so sure they will be appropriate not only because of the walking but because of my age and the type of function it is. I’m also not sure if maybe I should be looking for a different colored shoe, like pink or red or something. The dress is also a one shoulder dress and falls to about the knee.
I need help…lots of help with this.
|Make Your Legs Look a Mile Long!If you choose a pretty shoe in a skin tone or soft pink you will find that you have put the emphasis on the dress, which is a good thing. However, the bonus with a skin tone shoe is that it will lengthen your legs!

|Too Much Sparkle Will Look Cheap!Trying to match your purse and shoe can be dangerous. While we like the sparkle on your handbag, trying to match it with a shiny shoe will be just too much. Instead, keep it classy with a satin or leather shoe.|
|Walking on Air. Cindy, you mentioned that you will be doing a lot of walking and didn’t want to wear too high of a heel. Here is a nice option that is feminine and will be the right style with your dress. We like the way the front of the shoe echoes the draping in your dress.

|Pass on Straps. OK, so these look like they might match and be comfy but we can assure you that most shoes that have straps end up being a killer. Also, because your dress is made with a fabric that looks like heavy satin you will want to make sure the shoe balances it. These sandals are too light looking and would work better with something made of a lighter or sheer fabric. (Available for a limited time www.shoes.com)|
