Next week Im going to a 15 yrs old birthday of my cousin. The party is semi-formal to formal dress. Im 39 yrs old and I be wearing a blue dress that goes to the knee, it is very simple beause it does not have any sparks or embroydery, I picked the simplest one because I did not want to go very formal, since the invitation said also semi formal. I mean the dress I know it cant be worn like a work dress, beause it is more forma than that, but it is not a long dress either.


The thing is that I will have to buy some silver shoes that goes with the blue color dress. Since i be wearing the shoes without pantyhose, because that is

There is no rule that says you can't wear pantyhose, I prefer to wear some type of hose with my shoes, other than sandals. If you really feel that no hose is a rule you can put some baby powder in the

Hi Chicle!

It does help a bit when you buy your shoes ahead of time. I try to break in my sandals and heels by wearing them around the house with white cotton socks! It helps strectch them out a bit more than if I wear them with my bare feet. Also, I've invested in some insoles on some of my heels (Dr. Scholl's has Sole Expressions that I love!). They help a ton when my feet starts to sweat and the shoes become slippery in the inside.
Make sure to bring a pair of stylish flats with you just in case you have trouble walking on your high heels.

Wearing white socks , very good idea. This is good info. I too will try this next time my new shoe seems a wee bit tight.
