Which comes first: the shoes or the dress?

Usually, when I have to find (read: buy) something for a special event, I pick out the dress first.

But yesterday was a first for me. I was shopping for something completely different (sneakers for my son) and I saw a pair of shoes that I had to have. I have nothing to wear with them, but I bought them anyway since I have a wedding this weekend, and the RWA National Conference in little more than a week. I figured I could find something to go with the shoes.

So...how does it work for you? The dress first, or the shoes? Or some other accessory--scarf, wrap, necklace...?

(PS: that's my precocious five year old daughter modeling the shoes in question.)

I'm a HUGE shoe person!!! I'll confess... sometimes I just buy the shoes because they're too darn cute to pass up. If I can't find something to match the new shoes exactly, I'll make do with something black and white, then tie in accessories to help.

I can't wait to see what you find to go with those gorgeous shoes!

Your daughter was sweet to model them for us!

Adidas Meis first, yoga flare pants and cooridnating top to match the shoes.

Can you tell I don't get out much?

OMG! Those shoes are delicious!!!! I can see why you bought them, and I deeply suspect you'll find the perfect thing to wear with them - you have to, because not wearing those shoes would be a sin. And I know you're not a sinner. Much. Ahahahahahaha!!!!

See you soon, fellow shoe fetish friend...

I must confess......I have bought more than one pair of shoes then had to shop like a fiend for an outfit to match.

Those shoes are too cute! Can't wait to see them at National.

Hmmm...a very deep, deep question, Colleen. I would usually say the outfit first and then the shoe, but then I have so many shoes that I'll use with different outfits. I admit that I've been looking for RITA/GH shoes since the event last year. Found several pair that I loved that were these stilettos, but after breaking my foot and it needing a full 6 months to heal (bleck), I had to readjust my high heeled aspirations and get some lower heels. So, in this case, I got the shoes first and then found a dress that would go with many of the shoes I have.

I must admit, I'm totally IN LOVE with my new shoes. May I share?

Wow, Marley! Are you wearing those to the P/P party? (Speaking of which, what are you wearing?)

Heather, personally, I'd probably go for the yoga pants--I don't dress up that often.

Hey Stef...I'm not much of a sinner. Nope. Not at all. :-) Can't wait to see you!

For the PP party? I'm wearing this black and white sheer shirt and a black skirt and some fab shoes. Is that too dressy? Should I wear pants?

MARLEY! Those are the shoes I wanted!!! Sigh. They are so cool.

I have several pair of shoes that I bought because I loved, then have to dig for something to wear with them.
