Default What color shoes with celery or "celadon" colored dress

The ony thing I can come up with is silver, but that is more for ice blue than ice green, isn't it? I am not fond of how the gold sandals they show here look with this dress. However, my gown is floor length.

Pretty color. Silver or a champagne color would work. I like to buy 2-3 prs, go home, try them on and decide. Than I return the ones I odn't like.

That's a great dress! I like the gold they show with it. I agree the silver wouldn't look quite right. I'm thinking champagne or cream/ivory.

How about something like those clear sandles with a real pretty heel and a rhinestone accent very neutral, (Cinderella like).We were just on the Century where we had 3formal nights and I took shoes like that for all three gowns.
Nordstroms.com has hundreds and hundreds of shoes usually with free shipping.

I think I would take the dress shoe shopping with me. There is nothing like seeing them together to get a better idea. That way, you can try on the shoes and dress at the same time (if you go to a department store).

I do love your dress, celadon is a favorite color of mine.

I think the soft gold on the model looks very pretty. A very glitzy gold would be too harsh. OR you might go for a shade that matches your skin tone..biege, cream etc. I think it's a beautiful color.

I agree with eandj....maybe a more toned-down gold shoe would look nice, although I like the bright gold also.

Default silver looks great with that color.

My daughter got a Celodon colored dress for prom this year and wore some little strappy silver heels that matched great.
Love the dress by the way!

I think the gold sandals with that color look fabulous! A small, subdued gold bag would bring the whole look together!

I wore a celadon dress for formal night last time and wore silver shoes and accessories with it. I thought it was a perfect combination.

Oh, I love your dress. i would wear silver or champagne. I think you would get a lot of wear out of either of those colors. I see champagne a lot these days.

I bought it at a local formal shop, but anyone who carries Mori Lee formal wear should have it

Thanks everyone for the compliments and advice. I never thought of champagne shoes, may try that first. Since it is a two piece I can carry just the top piece around when I go shopping.

I third (or fourth) the champagne, or bone color - if it has a little sparkle in it, not flat-colored.

Default 2 pieces?

Hi the dress is actually 2 pieces?
I would never have guessed! I thought it was a full dress!
As much as I love wearing dresses on formal nights, dressy
skirts and tops are fun as well
I really thought it was a dress!

Yes! They make them that way so you can choose the length of dress as well as the bodice style and then just put them together.

I agree. A creme colored matte leather would not work.

I also agree with the suggestion that a soft gold, not a glitzy or deep shade, would work very well with that beautiful dress.

Another option would be a soft color, like creme or soft gold with clear stones adorning them.

A few years ago I bought a pair of Prada silk satin slides in a medium shade of sage green. Sounds weird, but they would have been perfect with your dress.

Take the skirt shopping with you and hold it in front of you when you try on shoes. You may come up with something that's unexpected and incredible looking.

I thought it was a one piece dress too

I've seen this before for bridesmaids and I think it is a wonderful idea. A bride can choose a fabric and color, the style can be suited to each individuals body, rather than the same dress for all. Brilliant.

I like the idea because I'm 2 different sizes, my top is larger than the bottom.

Actually, I think this IS intended as a bridesmaid's dress, but luckily they've come a long way since the taffeta and chiffon mega puff-balls of the 80's
