What shoes to pair with a cocktail dress?

Q: i’m going to a wedding in july, bought the dress its terani style 35056C short to the knee cocktail dress in solid black with gold boatneck appliqued bodice all around neckline detail. What color of shoe and style would best fit that type of dress? thanks GIGI

A: Dear Gigi!
I do love a wedding! You don’t tell us where the wedding will be? Beach? NYC hotel? But just going with your description, I’m feeling a real Greek vibe. And what better way to show off that Greek look that some strappy gold sandals.
