Catherine Hopkins' Texas Soiree

Catherine Hopkins at The Shiny Pebble hosted the most elegant Texas Summer Soiree (and you know they do everything "big" in Texas.....).  Her guests included some of the most fashionable ladies from all Four Corners!
I was "late for the party", as usual, but Catherine so graciously invited me in for a drink after hours to peruse the event.  "Being late for the party" didn't mean that I couldn't enjoy all its benefits, so I jumped at the chance to don my fav vintage cocktail dress.....the parties' decor was so extravagant, how could I not?.....
I thought my raspberry silk cocktail dress would do nicely,

but was at a loss for which shoes to wear with it!  Oh, what's a girl to do when she has too many shoes to choose from???  In these cases I usually ask my lovely daughters, but it's summer......they have their own social calendars and were nowhere to be found.  So I will ask you!  Which pair do you think would compliment the gown with an understated elegance?  I would love to hear your thoughts.....
(You may be surprised to hear that I was actually leaning toward the green!)
