Christmas dress help (what color tights and shoes)

Do any of you have a past Christmas pict of your LO wearing a red Christmas dress you can post. I'm wanting to see what color tights & shoes you put with it and how it looks in a pict.

My almost 10 mo old DD has a solid red Christmas dress that I plan to get professional photos in and I can't decide what color shoes and tights to put on her. I need to see examples! I'm leaning towards ivory tights and black patent leather shoes.

Thanks!

I don't have any pics, but that was what I was going to say. White or ivory tights and black patent shoes.

Re: Christmas dress help (what color tights and shoes)

My girls almost always have red Christmas dresses and we always do either white or ivory tights with black shoes. The shoes are usually mary jane type. I think we have used white more than ivory because the dresses usually have some white on them somewhere. I'd show a picture, but I don't think I have any on the computer.

I swear I was going to post a pic of DD's dress and ask the same questions! Her dress red with white polka dots so I'm leaning towards white tights and white shoes.

I'm the opposite of most the mamas. If the dress can pull it off I'd go with white tights and white or red shoes. I just don't see black shoes going with a beautiful red dress. Good luck!

I would suggest White tights with Black shoes... My LO's first Christmas she was 7 1/2 months old and wasn't wearing shoes yet, but Her red dress with White tights looked cute!!!

We do black shoes because they match everything and I only buy one pair of dress shoes for the current size.
