[Shoe Dilemmas...]

So, I have decided to go to the summer ball en femme. This is for several reasons, including but not limited to: messing with people's heads, getting myself noticed, reminding people who I am, the look on Matt/Liz/Kerry/Hannah's face, an excuse to wear my new corset, an excuse to wear a wig, boys clothes are boring, I want to sew something, etcetera.

So I have my corset, and decided to sew a skirt to match it in the same hand woven blue thai silk. I decided on making it a floor length fishtail number so I can be teh sexy rather than teh slutty for once! I'm going to make a bolero jacket in dark navy suiting to keep my shoulders warm and preserve some modesty. I'm going to wear my long black wig with the fringe, my opal ear plug and some sort of jewellery I haven't decided on.
But... I can't find the right shoes!
Turns out blue is so not this season, unless it's a particularly vile shade of neon-ish-but-not blue or turquoise. Some asshole has also decided that women get to wear pretty flat shoes, and as I've decided I need 4"+ heels all of those are out too.

So, my darling friends, I put the choice to you.



Here is my corset:


Here is my corset and said not-quite-finished skirt:


Neither photo really shoes the true colour of the corset, but the colour varies a lot depending on the lighting from a royal blue to a darker blue so I guess that is the colour of the corset under some artificial lighting.
But, enough of that, how about some shoes?

Here are the shoe choices I've come up with:

Black Patent Boots

Black and Blue Platform Heels

Blue Flame Platforms

Blue Glitter Platforms

Blue Lizard Platforms

Black and Blue Demon Wedges

Blue and Suede Heels

Blue Patent and Sequin Heels

Navy Slingbacks

Blue Hidden Platforms

Thank you. There were some other shoes I liked, but £50 is my budget so even at half price the slate blue lace-and-buckle-up worker boots with 5" heels in the sale at topshop in my size are probably a no-go because £70 is a lot of pennies for a pair of shoes you might only wear once!
I've chosen most of the shoes because they'll work for shoots and suchlike too.

Now wait a moment!

Comments, queries and suggestions greatly appreciated!

And as you can see, I am procrastinating furiously for my exam on Thursday and trying to curb the impulse to stay up all night sewing when I have a big meeting all day tomorrow and have to get up at 7.45am!
