Choosing Shoes for Lucy - Have Your Say!

This is Lucy.  She's a close friend of mine and she's going to a christening very soon and has been trying to plan her outfit. Lucy is the godmother so she really wants to look good.

In order to make sure Lucy gets her look spot on, we decided to have a little dress up session and take some photographs.

She has bought a gorgeous dress from Topshop that perfectly suits Lucy's figure. She has big boobs and a tiny waist. What a perfect combination. Let's hope Lucy doesn't mind this dissection of her vital stats! Luckily, she's heard it all before from me.

So here's the dress, with Lucy in it.

Dress, Topshop, £45, available in store
Clutch, Dune
It flatters her figure beautifully. The deep V helps to reduce the expanse of her bust and avoid the old 'mono-boob' syndrome. The puffy sleeves add subtle feminine styling and the cinched in waist, with tulip shape skirt, emphasises her lovely curves.

It's Lucy's perfect dress. But this is the important bit. And here is where you come in. We need help picking shoes. Lucy has three options - all black but all different.

Option 1 - The classic high heeled pump


Dune
Option 2 - The strappy sandal


Dune
Option 3- The slingback wedge

Lucy and I have different opinions about the options but we can't make an ultimate decision. So we want you to have your say! Fun!

In the comments, please write 'pump', 'strappies', or 'wedge' and if you have time, please tell us why. You can join the debate on facebook too. All you have to do is 'Like' the ReallyRee page and then comment away!

Lucy will wear the shoes with the most votes and we'll be extremely grateful for the help and advice. Thanks so much.

Can't wait to hear from you

  1. I vote STRAPPY! They help soften the whole outfit, the pumps make it look a bit more corporate, the wedge is my second fav but the strappy ones are my fav by far! Especially as it is a summer affair you should get your toes out! Look forward to seeing which is the winner!

  5. Definitely strappy. Those shoes were meant for that dress!

  6. I'm gonna "step" outside and say Wedge. I think they're simpler for a dress that has a lot of detail, yet they're still summery and modern. The Strappies seem to compete with the dress.

  7. I really like the wedge, I think the strappy is too much for a christening.

  8. This is so much fun! Between the blog, Twitter and facebook so far:
    The strappies have 14 votes
    The Pumps have 4 votes
    The wedges have 3 votes

    2 people have suggested a peep toe pump. Maybe we need to think about this?!

    Forget what I said between strappy and pump. Peep toe pump would be perfect! x

  10. I like the strappy sandal! I'm going to get that dress if they sell it online? I love it! It's perfect for my shape too!

  11. Strappy out of the three but I do have to say a peep toe could be perfect!! Strappy might look too evening? Good luck xxx

  12. I love the strappy if you are wearing this out for evening. If it is a day affair I would go with the wedge!! Love them both!! I agree with the others the pump looks to corporate!! Love the dress!!!!!

  14. STRAPPY 100%! Besides the fact that those shoes are gorgeous, they really stand out with Lucy's dress. As the Godmother, she needs to stand out, not blend in.
    2nd choice are the pumps, but it looks a little too boring.
    Lastly, I don't like the wedges with that dress at all.

  16. Strappy all the way! Breaks up the girlyness of the polka dots. Cute dress!

    I vote for the pump!! I may be all alone on that, however, the dress has exaggerated shoulders, plunging v-neck, and polka dots. With so much going on with the dress, it requires a simple shoe. A simple black peep toe would be nice as well. The strappy sandals are distracting and those wedges don't compliment at all! #TeamPump

  20. Without a doubt - Strappies! They look far better, wedges looked the worse, too casual. Love Lucy's dress, it looks great on her x

  21. Love the strappies! Although peep toe platforms would also look so chic! x

  22. first choice is pumps
    and second choice is strappies if you want to look more dressed down and quirky.

  23. The strappies are my favourite. They're sex on heels...

    But that's precisely why I am going to opt for the pumps. They are demure, classic and more appropriate for a christening.

    Whatever you choose, Lucy will (and does!) look sensational!
