I bought an ivory dress with black flowers scattered around it, but have no idea what to wear with it. It has strappy sleeves and i need to cover up my shoulders in church (at least for the ceremony).

Should i wear an ivory coloured pashmina? Or add a bit of colour to the outfit? Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Thank you !!

Black pashmina?

What colour shoes are you wearing?

Teal can you look nice or hot pink if you tie in shoes?

Thank you for replying. The shoes are black suede high heeled sandals. Bag is black satin.

But if a coloured wrap meant a need for a new bag then i could definitely go for that!

So would i get away with just a new wrap & bag - or do i need new shoes to match? Or is that overload?

No, keep the shoes, they will tie in with the black on the dress, new handbag and pashmina or shrug type thing? Debenhams have quite a few in just now?

No worries! If you can, take the dress with you then you can try them all on together!
