..continuing with the topic of striped dresses, I'd like to kick off a discussion on what footwear to pair with them. As I'm sure we all realize, there are a lot of different styles of striped dresses and footwear can be anywhere from very casual to very dressy. I've shown the dress that I'm planning to shorten (at the end of find list) but feel free to discuss other examples. Here are some shoe finds to kick things off....would love to see other finds posted...

- What are your favorite shoe styles?
- How do you decide on color and/or prints?
- Do shoes with a lot of straps across the instep (caged/gladiators etc) "mimic" the stripes and is that flattering or not?
