Got the prints back from framing and hung them up. In the end I decided to put all three together, so the frame colours don't match exactly. But I think they still look better together than my initial plan of putting the Scout Trooper elsewhere.

Ever so slightly wonky, admittedly, but that's what you get trying to hang pictures without a plumb line or spirit level...

I love how they turned out! They definitely belong together. But consider moving the one on the left (sorry, can't remember who that is) to the center; the colors might look more balanced. Homes should reflect the personality of the residents. It looks like you're doing an excellent job of that.

I got this picture of all my old roommates blown up into a 20 X 30in poster and had it framed.

Thanks! I have a few showers to go to and I thought this would be perfect. I'm not sure what shoes to wear, however.

Nice dress. The white panels are cute, and floral prints are going to be massive this year.

Pastels of most hues would work for shoes, so would neutrals including white, and even natural/light tan leather. To dress it up, something with a bit of heel or a bit wedge-y, perhaps even a little strappy though obviously nothing excessive.

Any highly-saturated colours would run the risk of looking like Dorothy in her blue dress and ruby slippers. Avoid these unless you really know what you're doing in terms of the hue you choose. And black shoes would just be gross.

Just a few thoughts off the top of my head. You'll have fun in that dress, I think.

I don't have any pastels or neutrals. I was thinking I'd do some sort of neutral just because I don't buy a lot of shoes and would want versatility, but I have no idea what would go with my skintone. I just feel like white shoes or even ranging to tan look odd on me.

A natural wood wedge or heel with an otherwise white (canvas or suede maybe?) shoe may be a reasonable solution to the above. The warmth the wood imparts would work nicely with your skin-tone IMO.

And natural wood just happens to be popular enough this year that you should be able to find a range of examples to try on and see what you think of it in the flesh.

Love the dress! And it doesn't matter what color your skin is. If the white (off white?) in the dress looks good on you, the same color shoes or sandals will look good. Enjoy.
