Ask the Stylist: Gold Sandals

Ask the Stylist: Gold Sandals

Dear Ask the Stylist,

I am looking for a gold pair of high heel sandals under €100 that I could wear with a plain strapless red dress (pictured).

I love the look of the Jimmy Choo “Jag” heels in gold however they’re not in my price range. Do you know of anything else suitable?

Also, do you know of any decent places in Dublin (not expensive) or online that I can find gold jewellery in?

Gold Strappy Sandals

Wow, the Jag leather sling backs by Jimmy Choo are beautiful and at €252, not many of us can afford this splurge.

Luckily, I spotted a similar pair in Dunnes Stores (€20) last weekend – they’ve just hit the shelves, so much so that I don’t have a product shot for you yet but will send on as soon as they have it ready.

New Look (£18, €22) also do a pair of gold strappy sandals in this shade of gold, but they are more of a “caged” heel than the Choos and Dunnes sling backs.

A third option would be these Dune at House of Fraser strappy gold sandals (£75, €88.40) with a mesh detail.

Gold Accessories

Funny that you should ask about gold accessories because I recently spotted some fabulous gold accessories in Aldo, a place I went to looking for shoes, but was blown away by the array of dramatic, accessories there. Check out the pics below which I took on my phone in-store.

Their earrings range from chandelier types to Grecian, hooped, “coin” detail and studs.

Not only that but they also have some fab clutch handbags and great cuffs and bracelets including the “Chanel stacked bangle” look that is popular at the moment. This is not suitable for your outfit however, so I’ll get back to the point in question….

For this outfit, I’d choose the following gold accessories (they also come in silver), all of which you’ll find in Aldo (Grafton St, Henry St and Dundrum Town Centre) -

• a pair of statement earrings
• a gold cuff bracelet
• a mock croc detailed clutch bag

Enjoy putting your outfit together and let us know how you get on!

    Love all the tips with the gold jewellery but would you happen to know where she got the dress, it’s just fab

    I actually bought my dress online from the states as it was a lot cheaper there. They do sell them in Ireland but from memory it was about €300 here. I bought it on best bridal prices http://www.bestbridalprices.com/?keyword=dessy%202058&search_in_description=1&cPath=0. It’s actually a bridesmaid dress but I got it taken up just above my knee so it doesn’t look like a bridesmaid dress. Quality is very good for the price.
