What to Wear: Sale Shoes

We've all been there...you find something on super discount and buy it. No matter that you don't have a clue what to wear it with or how it fits into your wardrobe. Here is Genevieve's request:
I am new to SF and happened across your blog accidentally and I love it. I was hoping you could help me with something. I bought these shoes on super sale a few weeks ago. The problem I am having is what to wear with them. The color I have is steel luster, which reads a little bit more lavender in real life than it does on the internet.

I am 5'4", a size 10 and I do not have any particular event to go to. I was just hoping for some help on how to wear these well and if you could provide options, that would be great. Thank you for your time! I really appreciate it!
In San Francisco, there's always an event somewhere requiring a nice dress. Opera? Dinner out? Ballet? Party? Gallery opening? You'll have plenty of opportunities to get dolled up:

Shoes - I learned my multiplication tables for a pair of scalloped heels similar to this ;)
Dress - This is one of those dresses that demands a woman with curves. My toothpick frame would look ridiculous. Genevieve will be fab.
Jacket - Adorable from Forever 21. That neckline is infinitely flattering. And at $22, you don't really need to worry about leaving it behind somewhere.
Clutch - So convenient when you're balancing drinks and appetizers.
Earrings - Fun, big "rock" earrings from Forever21.

You might also be able to do the shoes with tweed trousers, but they're a wee bit on the fancy side. You'd have to see how it worked in person.

beautiful dress! not too expensive, and completely easy to wear. i agree, though, you'd need more curves than either of us have to pull it off.
