Either s pink or red dress would be nice. Along with other gold accessories and gold glitter nail polish.
Paint them in normal gold first then go over them in glitter and top coat for shine.
I know not everyone one is into hair accessories but if you are, a gold glitter hair band would look lovely

Not silver?

Yes Silver is fine. If your shoes are silver. They looked gold on your picture

If only I could squeeze into a red dress I already have.

Going to search red now, it's a colour I love to wear...

Do you think kitten heel wouldn't work with this length?

I'm thinking I need knee length dress and also this is too eveningie?

I really like this but not sure the silver shoes will look right.

Me personally would not put kitten heels with the first red dress you have posted. Dont get me wrong. They wouldnt be ghastly but I do think a higher heels would be better.
Yes mint and silver dfinstely work well together. Gorgeous combustions.
The 3,rd dress you have posdted would look nice with red shoes. But silver would work too.

Thanks v much Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost, I think I may order the mint one, not a colour I would usually go for so tempted to try it.

Hackedabove Sat 22-Aug-15 08:14:16

Thank goodness for click and collect, I can report back tomorrow afternoon!

Hackedabove Sat 22-Aug-15 08:21:40

Oh no, now I'm thinking I need a jacket... White cardi?

Hackedabove Sat 22-Aug-15 08:32:26

Too casual?

No not too casual at all. It's gorgeous and elegant

OMG. That dress is gorgeous. Excellent choice.

And I've still yet to pick up the mint one, might keep both, as they'll be good for next summer.
