too matchy-matchy

I got this dress:
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

to wear to my cousin's wedding and now I need shoes. It's a sort of casual, outdoors, west coast kind of affair. I was thinking pointy 50s-ish heels, maybe in red or green, but then, that seemed too much, so maybe a color of one of the flowers on the dress? Yellow? Or purple? Or should I just go with heeled sandals? Then again, have I completely lost sight of what I'm doing here? Help! I can't make up my mind about shoes. Suggestions? Anyone?

Heeled sandals, or some cream spectator pumps.

Cream or brown..I fear red would be toooo matchy matchy (and only little girls and whores wear red shoes, or some movie said ages ago..)

I think cream would look really, really nice.

I LOVE THAT DRESS.

I would wear shoes in maybe a neutral, light color...the yellow of the yellow flowers? I don't think red or green would look right, it'd be too...MUCH, or something. If you can match your shoes to some bangle bracelets, etc. that would be rockin'.

Heeled sandals would also look really cute, I think.

Yeah, I was thinking big, plastic bangles in the color of the shoes, and possibly a cardigan or something, since it's the PNW in the evening and it'll probably get cold.

Also, I got these in black. I now wish I'd gotten the cream, but regardless...they are comfy like slippers, and so flattering to the foot, and SO cute on. Seriously. Good stuff. (also, they were $40 cheaper at the Clark's store, strangely enough...)

Ooooh. DEFINITELY the first ones, the Aerosoles. I really really like those, they are so very cute! And you can wear them with just about ANYthing.

And with that first sandal, you could even get them in the BLUE. I think that would be so adorable with that dress...

Too matchy-matchy, and not good for soft ground, but totally cute. Also, really damn expensive.

Sorry I don't have an actual suggestion. But I do love that dress!

So cute! Maybe with some other dress though. *sigh*

That dress is ADORABLE, where did it come from! And I think red heels would be really cute with it -- I think you want some shoes that mimic one of the colors in the dress (not green, though), because cream would just be a little boring. Yellow or blue would be good too.

Ohhh. I think a light, dusty pink like some of those flowers would look VERY NICE (and a bit quirky) underneath the red border. Because red and pink are LOVELY and people never just GO for it and put them together.

(OR UM. Green?)

Gold heeled sandals would be the bomb with that dress. But red patent leather heels would be cute too.
