New Dress

Way back in Christmas I saw an absolutely great dress at Lord and Taylor's. It was a coral-y pink dress that fit me perfectly and was way too expensive. So my mom took a mental picture and filed it away in her head. She returned a few times to see if it was on sale. And finally, months later, it was! My mom called me a few days before coming down to Greenville and said I was meant to have that dress and that she was bringing it to me for Easter!
Here it is....
What do you think?
(Ignore the orange overcast)
So now I need your opinions/advice. What color shoes would you wear with this? I think something strappy would be fun. Here are my silver and black options.
I think gold might look better though. hmm... the thing is... I don't own a pair of gold heels. It seems like I should. Here are two that I would like to own: (the first one is more fun but the second one would go with more things).
So lets poll the audiences: black, silver, gold (I am in a sorority of 113 girls, I can find a pair to borrow for the weekend), or some other color like turquoise or floral?

  2. I would go with gold, and I absolutely love the fun one! If not, then I would wear the silver.

  3. I really love the silver pair that you own, but if you can borrow the gold that you prefer, go for it! The silver would be beautiful. I love, love the dress. You have great taste.

  5. BTW, just going through comments - I wish my job was a party planner, but alas, I have a typical 9-5 as a government contractor. I plan events for evenings and weekends, but hope to start my own business soon :)

  7. The gold might be my first choice, but I think the silver looks fine too. That dress is gorgeous! Don't you just love it when you are patient and things work out like they did for you? And look at the money you saved. Your will be the belle of the ball in your pretty new dress. Have you finished painting the cooler? Can't wait to see it. Love & blessings from NC!
