I would love some advice please. Anniversary dinner with DP at weekend and going to a super, super fancy place for a meal.
I have decided to dress up in a (new) long gown: it's a special occasion and I know I will be overdressed but I have a taste for the dramatic and love the dress (and don't want to wait for the opera etc to wear it) so... [shrugs].
Pic attached. But how would you accessorise it for a fancy dinner? My feeling is very simple accessories (diamond or pearl studs) and let the drama of the dress speak for itself, but what colour/style shoes/bag?
Also, what cover up? I don't have an evening coat as such but do have my grandmother's mink stole (sorry to the anti fur brigade but she left it to me in her will and it means a lot to me!) but think I run the risk of looking like SUPER OTT, though perhaps I should just say f**k it and go the whole hog!
That is the most fantastic page, thank you Fedgling. Diane Kruger's dress is superb.
Maybe I will go for the diamond studs as my only jewellery. And I do have black strappy heels somewhere... I think I saw a pic of Emma Stone online wearing black accessories with a similar colour dress!
