    Hope this is ok to ask :o

    I'm going to an event NYE (semi-/formal) and am going to be wearing a dress for the first time in probably 5 years. I bought a dress I really like (which is suprising, I usually think I look absolutely ridiculous in dresses) however my fashion-challenged self is having a hard time deciding what shoes to go with. Can anyone give me any suggestions? Already spent a lot of the budget on the dress, and as I probably won't wear them much would like to keep it under $200ish. Should add that bf is only about 4" taller than me so platforms are :nono:

    Thanks!!!!

    ok u guys :hsugh:

    $200 imo is a pretty good budget on heels.
    have u tried nordstrom's or any department store?

    my picks:
    http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urba...S_CUTOUTANDPEEP&popId=WOMENS_SHOES&prepushId=
    comes in the same color as your dress, or blk would be cute.
    (4" heel tho)

    gray would also be very cute
    http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3075906...Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=2376188&P=1

    pardon but I don't understand. If he is 4 inches taller than you, then you can get up to 5 inch heel and be fine considering his shoe probably has a 1.5-2inch heel too.

    :o

    I love the grey ones! Thanks! I think I'm going to have to buy online, as I'm in Canada and the shopping isn't the greatest in my city.

    Heels are good, just the super tall platforms that are in style (which makes it more like a 6" heel) are out :)

    Sorry! Leaving Christmas shopping to the last minute ftl.

    Ended up going completely opposite of what I planned to get :o ran out of time for shopping (sick dog + 3 day trip out of province to vet hospital = change of priorities) but a friend was nice enough to give me a pair of shoes for the night
