Default Wife's new cocktail dress, getting ready for our next cruise

I like it. This photo isn't the greatest but it's the only one I could find online. The white portion is actually somewhat form fitting and very attractive. There's also a little "bling" on it that doesn't come across in this photo right where the straps meet on the front. Now she's searching for the perfect shoes to match ...

Beautiful dress, how high a shoe is she looking for? A. Marinelli makes some wonderful shoes that are comfortable also. Here are some styles I think would be cute with the dress.

Rascal (ivory satin and black)


Ellis

Rosalia

These have a lower heel called Vaunt

Thanks for that Katlady, my wife really loves the first two pair there, and particularly the Ellis one. I think I'm going to have to try to find some of those now ...

Try Amazon that is where I got mine and for a good price. Put in the brand and model name in the search if they have the shoes it will show up. I hope that helps.

That's a really pretty dress! I actually love it..... I would wear my hair in really gentle waves. Maybe put half up in a clip, to get it off your face. If you have bangs, forget the clip and put in a thin black headband with your bangs in front.
