Hello fabbers,

Sorry to come back from the land of the missing with an advice question, but here it is:

I have to give a somewhat "big deal" presentation and was thinking I should probably wear a dress. I've included some that I'm considering in the finds below. However, I'm wondering whether this style of dress would commit me to wearing pumps. I don't own many pumps, I hate wearing them, and they're rather outside of my workplace norm, so they make me feel uncomfortable.

Thoughts on whether these dresses require pumps, and if not, what alternative footwear might be acceptable? For example, would the cream loafers or booties work? Note that it will be chilly weather - too cold for open toes.

Thanks a lot.
