What would some of you experts style this with? I was thinking either some sort of cuff OR a statement necklace? Or I have 5 very tiny diamonds on a very delicate short chain that I could wear around my neck - but maybe this dress requires more?
On feet it will just have to be some not terribly trendy high heeled black shoes, the budget will not stretch to anything new!
nightsky, it is lovely on - think Mint Velvet could be my new one-stop shop! The shoes - well ... the are high-ish black suede pointy LK Bennett numbers - a few years old but pretty classic. Would prefer something maybe a bit more up-to-date but think they might be ok with some black opaques?
Am veering towards a cuff, in fact Mint Velvet have a rather nice one on sale - not so much a cuff, more of a chunky bracelet.
I am normally a 40-something frazzled mum in jeans and so any sort of dressing up constitutes a slight panic!
Have you thought of a bib necklace? New look do a cheap one, but they are in loads of stores. Sorry i can't do links on phone bur a quick google turns up loads, from a tenner to a hundred quid. My feeling is if you have a zingy neckline then you can get away with your plain shoes, just about.
