this dress
It's nicer in real life than it looks in the picture!

It's for a wedding!

Anyway do I need to look for Rose gold jewellery, shoes and bag etc to match the zip or am I overthinking this.

Have lots of yellow gold but I don't want to spoil a gorgeous dress?

Thanks

Metallic shoes and hot pink clutch and nail varnish or vice versa would look good with navy....whispers don't match bag and shoes!!!!

Rose gold jewellery would look good too

That is a gorgeous dress. I was imagining something a bit fuddy dudddy from your description!

Yes because anyone close enough to see the difference is either about to get a snog, or pushed away for being too close. They will be thinking about that.

Go for it, the dress is lovely.

Think I hear 'navy dress' and think of Margaret Thatcher grin

Absolutely. The zip is at the back, for starters, and your jewellery will be generally viewed from the front.

Fab dress!

Great dress.
You're over thinking it.
Also, I think the idea of matching bags and shoes being dated is becoming dated.

No one at any of the weddings I've been to recently got the memo about matching bags and shoes being dated. I do live in The North though.

I wouldn't wear any jewellery with it except earrings. It's one of the very few dresses I think just needs fab hair, killer heels and lipstick.

Gorgeous dress..I love Ted Baker!

I agree with TSSDNCOP, you don't need to add much of anything to it as it's super classy on it's own.

Lovely dress, more is less, when it comes to jewellery with a great dress like this.

I think anything goes - but don't wear a necklace. Gorgeous dress.

I love the dress. Personally, rather than buy new jewellery I'd spend the money in the hairdressers having my hair put up. I live in north London and it costs me about £30 in a non trendy salon down the road and everyone always comments. Makes you feel properly 'done up' 😀

Thanks for the shoe suggestions! I do think I'll go for something in Rose gold!

Can anyone tell me if fascinators are mandatory or expected at weddings now?

Also would I need a jacket in the church?

WalkingZed Sat 09-Jul-16 19:38:03

something like this
Too officey?

WalkingZed Sat 09-Jul-16 19:38:40

So no statement necklace then? grin

SymbollocksInteractionism Sat 09-Jul-16 20:23:52

No need for a fascinator and definitely no statement necklace grin
Ooh this cape is nice!!

I have a theory and you're welcome to say it's shit, but I could care less.

If a wedding is in August and my dress is awesome, fuck wearing some dull, meh, oh it's a bargain in Debs cover up/wrap/bolero.

It's Summer, style it out. The jacket you've linked to would kill fecking moss, whatever you do don't put it near that dress which is awesome.

Please don't wear that cape.
