Fashion Help.

Ok, I need some advice. One of my favorite post-college traditions with my Momma is that every year she helps me pick out (and treats me too) a dress to wear to my works banquet. We're bargain shoppers so it's never anything excessive, just a fun dress I can rewear throughout the fall to holiday parties or weddings, etc.

In 2009 it was a leopard print Michael Kors dress. I couldn't find any pictures of myself from banquet that year so here's me rewearing it at a later date:



Why yes, I was twice the size then AND I don't know what's going on with my hair color. But we'll just roll with that for now.

In 2010 it was this fancy little number:


The photo doesn't do a great job of showing the best part of the dress, the skirt part which was silver and had cool flowerish things (you can kind of see them here, a little).


Not that leopard print wasn't bold but this year I've decided to kick it up a notch with some color. So I introduce you too this year's 2011 Banquet dress as selected by my Mom and I in September (I will post a picture of me in it after the banquet, of course, but not before).




(it's cobalt blue, if the pic quality fails me here)


Here's where you come in though. I can't for the life of me decide what shoes to wear. See, the problem is, they have to be comfortable and functional since I'll be on my feet working most if not all of the night. So, all my truly fabulous shoes are out. There's not chance I can quickly dart around in 6 inch stilettos all night without breaking something.


I don't want to wear flats (blah) but I'm thinking wedges are as good as it's going to get. Thoughts? Suggestions? Shoes you want to lend me? (I'm a size 8).


Love,


B

I suggest the brand Enzo Angioloni. I wear a LOT of stilettos and just suffer. But I have a pair of 4-inch ones in this brand and I can wear them for HOURS on my feet!
