      That is a very pretty dress. I would look for a chocolate brown satin type shoe if you can't find that color.

      these are cute:

        I think the metallic gold would be really nice. I also think nude shoes (skin tone) would look awesome. Let me see what I can find so you see what I am talking about.

        I don't care for these shoes, not my style, but this is the colour I mean.

            I have that dress. I love it! I wore it to a wedding in Miami that I attended with my fiance, his roommate, and his roommate's girlfriend. His roomate's girlfriend showed up in the exact same dress, haha.

            The color is difficult to match. Gold kind of clashes b/c it's not a true gold (it's a champagne gold) and silver clashes b/c the dress does have a hint of gold in it. I went with simple black heels and a black clutch, but I don't know if that's the sort of look you are going for at the beach. These shoes are by BCBG so they are probably a close color match BCBG Max Azria Ilinka (Champagne Satin) - BCBG Max Azria Women's Footwear.

            These are super cute, and pretty close color wise Charles by Charles David Rose (Champagne Satin) - Sandals.

            Both shoes come in black, too.

            If you are going with the champagne shoes, I would maybe do a fun color clutch, like one of these; there are lots of colors to choose from:Brontibay Paris Liseron Clutch - shopbop.com.

            If you go with black shoes, I would do a simple black clutch.

            Hope that helps :).

              I would go for a delicate black sandal with high heels and a black hand purse.

                That's a beautiful dress...my mom had a similar color dress for my wedding which was a champagne color and she wore bronze stuart weitzman shoes with it and it looked gorgeous...I wouldn't go with a gold color just because the contrast isn't 2 nice against the dress

                but the best thing to do is just buy a pair that you like take them home and try them on with the dress...my mom bought 2 pairs and exchanged them before she found a pair that looked good with the dress

                I tried to find the shoes online that she had but they didn't have them anymore...sorry

                  I just tried that dress on for a wedding last week and almost bought it. It's so pretty and a wonderful fit - it will look beautiful with your hair color!

                  I was planning on either:
                  a) black, thin strappy sandle and this very cool black necklace that I have that sort of reminds me of 20's jewelry; or

                  B) a barely noticeable nude sandal and some delicate jewelry

                  I hadn't thought of chocolate brown - that's a good idea, too.

                  I guess it depends on the overall look you want to create, but there are a lot of options.

                    This is why I love zappos.com, shoes.com, endless.com, etc. You can try on all the shoes with the dress. I like to leave them on a while around the house & see how comfortable they really are. It's free shipping & returns. Watch out though, it's addictive. Oh, & you can sort by color & heel height. It's so easy.
