Hi ladies

I've just bought this dress for a friend's wedding in a few weeks and love it but the only problem is the ARMS will be out!

Seriously hate having my arms on show but am struggling to find some kind of jacket/bolero to wear over the top. I don't want anything too structured like a formal jacket as the dress is quite floaty, and also don't want to cover my waist too much as it's the only small-ish part of me. Also not keen on wearing a wrap as you have to hold onto it all day.

If anyone has any suggestions of something that would go with the dress I would be forever grateful!

That is a beautiful dress. I love it. It depends in your style but I would probably wear slightly darker than nude Stilletos and/Or red accessories.

Oh and embrace your shapely arms. No one else will notice them and I'll bet they're not as bad as you think.

Thank you Jersey on both points smile - I actually saw some shoes in the colour you describe the other day, will have to go and have another look!

I'd go with with red or silver shoes.

Put a bit of fake tan on your arms. They'll be fine. You'll look back in 20 years time and think you had lovely young arms and wonder what you were worried about. (Oh to have the benefit of hindsight).

Light pink, Red or silver accessories,
