I've got a dress I love and that I'd like to wear to a work dinner and dance thing. Got a nice necklace but I'm a bit stuck on the other accessoires - I would really appreciate your ideas for some kind of shrug and clutch bag. And has anyone an idea about comfy shoes that would go with it but that don't have high heels - smaller heels are ok but I suffer a lot from back problems and it involves a lot of standing around.
Your help would be much appreciated as I left it late and need to sort this weekend.
It's a lovely dress OP. I've always thought that green and black look very sophisticated together for a dinner dance. If you can't wear high heels - what about black suede kitten heels or low heeled/block heeled black suede strappies? A black clutch bag and then maybe a different coloured shrug/shawl.
Gorgeous dress and beautiful colour! I'd say no to the shawl or shrug. That dress wants to be seen, and covering it would take away from the glamour, in my opinion. For shoes I'd search out something era-appropriate and I'd keep it simple and get a great hair cut.
