|Hobbs, low heel, diagonal court shoe.|
I went with the shoes from Hobbs. They were a little less classic than LK Bennet's mid-heel pump, but they were much more comfortable. For me, comfort always wins out. I was steady and pain-free all night. So that's a win!
My fantastic in-laws babysat for us. I asked my father in law to take a few pictures of us, which he kindly did. But, I forgot to ask him to make sure to get the shoes in the shot! Oh well.
|Shoes not quite in the frame!|
|Still no shoes.|
|Definitely no shoes! You can see how bad my hay fever is, look at those puffy eyes and nose! If anyone knows a cure, I'm interested!|
At the dinner dance, column type dresses with sparkly trims were popular. So were knee length, tight cocktail type dresses with exposed zippers down the back. Everyone looked great, but I have to say that the tight dresses drove me nuts. They just didn't fit right. A big problem was the torso length. There were a lot of women with the torso bagging up because there wasn't enough room in the hips and everything was moving up to find space, or the back length was just wrong. This totally ruins the effect of a sleek metal zipper down the back! I am sure no one but me or another sewer would notice. Shame though, because these women were pretty, well presented and toned. A dress that fit would have been icing on the cake!
