Dress me....

Since you ladies were so helpful yesterday... I decided to buy a pair of black wedges to go with my blue jean mini skirt. Now I need help with something to wear for dinner. Would the wedges work with a black dress? I don't want anything too fancy just would like to look a little sexy. I tried on a few dresses yesterday but I thought they all looked weird lol. The material was thin (jersey?) and you could see the top part of my rib cage. Not sexy.
FTR, I normally dress "skater-ish", jeans, tshirt and converse. I'm just trying out something new. What about a pencil skirt? Those are pretty sexy. Could I wear wedges or am I going to have to buy more shoes? Platform pumps?

Sorry, I know this is kind of all over the place and long but I need serious help. Thank you :)

  • I personally don't like wedges. To me they look like blocks with straps on them attached to your feet. I'd probably wear something else with a black dress like a pair of cute flat sandals or if it's cold out a cute pair of boots.

  • the wedges work with the jean skirt because they can have an earthly like look.

    Not sure I would go with the black dress though. If you want to dress down the black dress a little, just keep it a simple plan black shoe like a slipper style with light accessories. Maybe a belt around the middle.

    If they are pure black wedges you might be able to pull if off, but try to find accessories that match them.

  • I don't like the stappy ones either. They're the peep toe kind. I'd post a link but I don't know how to make it click-able.
    I'm trying to be cheap here... didn't want to have to buy two pairs of shoes but I can.

  • Thank you ladies for your help. :)
    I ended with with a black high waisted pencil skirt, a white tee and black pumps (so awesome for $18!)
    I got a purple sweater and a purple flower to put in my hair.

    I'm so excited! I feel like a girl going on her first date. lol
