I am fat and going to a vv posh wedding, so have bought this to go over a plain navy wrap dress

I have a navy hat with cream feathers that I know suits me.
I have a pair of navy wedges that I know I can wear all day

I don't have suitable bag - and I can't decide on the colour.

A nice big cream clutch would be best, I think. Normally I'd say to add some colour but with you having the rest sorted already that's not going to work and there's plenty of interest in the jacket anyway.

Oh, there don't seem to be many about ATMconfused Saw this one which would work.

I'd go with silver... Dune have a good selection. You could be slightly blingy with something like this:

Or more refined like this:

Or depending on your colouring, pop in some brights:


Debenhams are good for bags too.

A coloured / metallic bag would just look like a random choice, I fear. Normally I'd be all for it, certainly. But, with shoes and hat being sorted and there being plenty of detail in the jacket I just don't think there's 'room' to add coloured jewelry and bag and both would be necessary to make it work.

The bag being big is key. Navy would work if cream isn't findable.

What sort of budget OP?

a big clutch that is, rather than a shoulder bag or some such.

this is just big enough although it can be made larger to order.thsi size would be perfect.

Is the cream in the jacket and hat pale enough that ivory would work or is it a deeper, creamier cream?

Thanks all = budget flexible

Mrs Lettuce do I sense that you hate the jacket - is "lots going on" a code for its hideous?
Its a deep cream cream in the jacket, slightly less so in the hat.

i was thinking Aspinal

No! It's nice! No criticism intended at all.

The bag looks good too and although I'd stick with a single colour myself it should work just fine.

MrsLettuce Mon 02-May-16 20:34:06

Ah, I see. 'there's plenty of interest in the jacket' / 'plenty of detail in the jacket', There is but not in a bad way!

Just that adding a single solid, extra colour when there's detail and all the rest of the items are navy / cream too would be odd to my eye.
