Please help me to find shoes and something to cover my arms

It's my dad's wedding in August. I've managed to find that dress that looks nice. But I'm useless with matching shoes and accessories. I need something to cover the tops of my flabby arms too.
I'm tall and don't usually wear heels so don't want anything too high. I'm a size 22 clothes and size 8 shoe and on a tight budget. Please help me.

this? It's very pretty! Will have a look about for you.

Is the background of the dress white or cream IRL?

MrsLettuce Sat 18-May-13 12:41:18

bolero? sleeves too short? cream heels?

MrsLettuce Sat 18-May-13 12:49:41

these are nice

this would be great with the BHS ones (free delivery code = DELIVERME) and a coloured cover up.

Not very original I know but pashminas can be picked up cheaply and come in loads of colours and best of all one size fits all. I've just ordered one for 3 pounds off amazon for a wedding in a couple of weeks.

I was just looking at shawls too. One in NAy of the colours from the print on the dress would be lovely, personly I'd go with one of the stronger colours but you don't have too. BHS had some in for small money, I saw. Also a 20% off code: HAPPYDAY and free deliveries on orders over a tenner as standard.

Could you stretch to an inexpensive wee hat to pull it all together?

probably too pricey but great

Thanks everyone. Some great ideas.
Can I get away with wearing tights with it? My mum has said no but I was hoping they'd look ok.

Nude tights would certainly be fine!
