Hi everyone,

First thread I've started on here so my linking skills may be a bit dodgy but you all seem to be good at this sort of thing so I thought I'd ask your expert advice!

I am going to a wedding at the end of the month and am planning to wear this dress, which I got for my birthday earlier in the year.

I'm 5'10, size 10 with fairly long light brown hair and am planning to fake tan (if any of that makes a difference!). Because I'm tall I don't like to wear massive heels but will wear moderate sized heels (i.e. not ugly kitten heels but not massive platforms).

I was thinking maybe gold to accessorize, but don't want to look boring and one-dimensional. What do you think? Need shoes and a clutch bag of some description plus some jewellery. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

I'm not sure how true the colour is on the internet. Have you thought about doing something with the current colour blocking/contrast theme, so maybe purple clutch and shoes?

yy to colour- green shoes and yellow clutch. Or yellow shoes.

Or these shoes with a blue clutch

Yes, I was thinking I needed some colour, just didn't know which one or how to introduce it without going overboard. The colour looks slightly darker in the picture, it's a bright coral colour.

I'd definitely go for a lilacy purple or a navy for shoes and clutch. LK Bennet outlet could be worth a look, or Dune.
