I need yoi all. What shall I put with this dress for a wedding?
Not an expert (lovely dress btw) but I would say no to nude tights, go with sheet black. I think seamed is over egging it really (though depends what you look like - if you are generally over the top with lots of make up, kinda punkie looking???? then yeah go for it. Not sure about wedges with the dress. Not sure why I think not. Perhaps someone with more style than me will be along soon!
I think it looks a little wild west saloon girl <which incidentally is a look that I sometimes enjoy on others>
The problem is that dresses like these can only be worn as you have described. Either the whole hog with pinned curl barnet seamed tights etc or roughed up otherwise if could look like a prom dress and we all know what that means, don't we?
I think fishnets would be fine with the dress just not flesh colour tights. Maybe a bar shoe with a bit of heel (sort of 20s/30s. It might end up a bit 'saloon girl' and nowt wrong with that but at least you will probably look different to all the 'naice' dresses out there. If wearing a shrug I think black would be better than red. I dunno.
Personally I would rather do this wort of this than a 'naice' dress any day of the week. Only been to a few weddings but usually wear something a bit different.
Oh and if you smoke, go the whole hog and get one of those cigarette holders, and an old fashioned powder compact and one of those little vintage type bags like grannies had that were velvet with -what is it> flocking? I had a few of those from my great grannie when younger but my hamster ate them!!!!!!
