Thats a bold colour! Lovely! I would go for equally bold contrasting cardi/little jacket and matching shoes I reckon. Bold plain colours are vay 'in'.

Thanks. What colour would you suggest?

I wore v similar dress (same colour & length) to a wedding last summer
wore it with bright purple heels (cross-strapped sandal style) and scarf and purple tiny clutch bag with pink/green embroidery, hair up with purple silk flowers in it.

maybe sounds a bit OTT written down but honest it was lovely!

oh that does sound lovely pixiemoon.Was it light or dark purple? I need to watch what shades of purple i wear though as I have red hair

Oh I think people with red hair look amazing in purples- a nice deep one here for the cardi/bolero. I wouldn't go too matchy with the purple accessories though- I am a huge fan of gold shoes (gold goes with everything)which I think could work well with green and purple.

I really love the hem on your dress!

thank you! I think gold would be a good option. Or maybe a mid blue....hmmm..........will have a think
