Inspired by the Mad Men threads, I've ordered this....
...Here's me baps I will be wearing it for a work do, what do you reckon is the best way to accessorise it ? I'm thinking seamed stockings, not sure about shoe colour - black seems a tad dull and some sparkly earrings. I want to prove irrestible should any saucy single men cross my path ( deluded face )
I like the thought of nude peeptoes as my stumpy little legs need all the lengthening they can get. I don't suppose anyone knows of a suitably supportive bra that has cups which won't show with that neckline ..
Lovely dress - very Joan Holloway! If it's for an Xmas/festive work do then I think bronze or old gold heels would look lovely with it - something like these maybe? http://www.marksandspencer.com/Autograph-Leather-Pointed-Court-Insolia%C2%AE/dp/B008RF2GD4?ie=UTF8&ref=sr_1_12&nodeId=42966030&sr=1-12&qid=1351954931&pf_rd_r=0MEME0RCE435KTRA64HE&pf_rd_m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&pf_rd_t=301&pf_rd_i=0&pf_rd_p=321381407&pf_rd_s=center-3
Alternatively, if you did red lipstick and nail polish you could easily get away with a deep red pair like this: http://www.marksandspencer.com/Limited-Collection-Patent-Platform-Court/dp/B003FCNC50?ie=UTF8&ref=sr_1_1&nodeId=42966030&sr=1-1&qid=1351955193
Lovely! I'd accessorise it with an updo from hairdressers, tights, makeup and a lovely bag. Very little jewellery. i bought a dress online thinking I would be all christina hendricks in it but it arrived and was gaping around the boobs. I looked more like peggy.
I'd wear it with red lippy (lush do an amazing pigment that is just sensational) and black shoes and bag -I'm not interested in making my 35in legs look any longer! However that dress is screaming for stockings and suspenders OP you're going to look stunning!
Wow. Just. Wow. Stunning dress. And definitely more suited to a fabulously voluptuous lady.
WRT a bra, it would be worth considering a very pretty one which you wouldn't mind showing a glimpse of. You really don't want to keep hoiking up the top - which if you are trying to hide a run of the mill number you may feel the need to do. I would think a balconette style is what you need with that neckline. Perhaps even a basque beneath?
MrsCumberbatch, I really really loved the teal but they didn't have it in stock, I am very pale but I usually suit green. I like the idea of purple shoes. ISingSoprano, no I don't, I have dark brown hair but I'm as pale as a typical redhead ( my mum's a redhead ).
Thank you all so much for your help - . Ujjayi - have you seen all the colours it comes in ? mmmmm - < enabler face > I might treat myself to a Prima Donna balconette bra, I bought my first Prima Donna a few months ago and it's bloody marvellous - hoiking central.
