Sorry have no idea about cheaper versions of the bag
Jewellery wise I would go for Pearls, they've become popular again this Autumn and with the cream in the dress would compliment the outfit really well. Due to the style of neck on the dress I would go for a choker length necklace and finish off with a nice bracelet to match.
The idea of trying to be formal was quite scary for me - until... tillyscoutmum sent me towards style and beauty - it is fun choosing an outfit online with you lot!!!! You have changed a chore into a game!!!! Tee hee!!!!
LOVE the dress. Do you think you would need a necklace? Why not go for a chunky black bracelet, which you could probably pick up quite reasonably at Accessorize or any of the high street stores that do jewellery? Shoes would go with some simple black court shoes. I like Next shoes and they're very reasonable (just had a quick peek at Next and wondered about these which look like they'd pick out the colours in the dress. Plain black ones would perhaps be more practical? Bags - would check out TK Maxx if you have one nearby.
I have some nice black court shoes with cut outs in the front.
If I wear them, a chunky pearl bracelet and a biggish (to make room for the Mummying a two year old stuff)clutch bag would be good.
What about hair - At the moment it is a bob - slightly longer at front and shorter at back with layers for movement and a soft fridge. By the wedding it could have grown enough to wear twisted up behind with a clip - or I could have it cut in a different style....
Thank you ladies - I love the idea of matching berry coloured shoes and bag - but my budget has been blown - I can't afford to buy the LK Bennett dress and LK Bennett bag and shoes - but I think they are nice. Claarrrsiii (ha ha ha)
Where have you seen these berry coloured shoes around- maybe they have matching bags too hanaflowerate3scones?
