Can't accessorize for toffee. Have a dress, and feck all else. Please help me before I end up wearing flip flops and a blazer.

This is the dress I'm wearing to a friends wedding in October

What next?

Oooh that looks lovely! I would think a funky chunky necklace and a wrap/pashmina type thing would finish it off. Plus some heels, black would do if can't match the colour. I have some strappy black velvet sandals that get worn with everything, so were a good investment.
Have some lovely chunky necklaces in MnS Autograph at the moment (also some cute MaryJane type patent shoes).

I'd go for a large disc drop collar necklace, oatmeal mini bond, and navy lizzie paisley scarf.

Oooh that's pretty!

I think some metallic shoes and a bag would work really well. Gold, silver or (my preference) pewter.

Some suggestions



more pricey

not pewter but gorgeous and would work

pretty and there's a bag and wrap on the page too!

<<yes, quite, alarkaspree - except the stuff they're suggesting is hideous grin>>

I'm not great at wraps and pashminas - I faff too much and a silver wrap may leave me with the possibility of looking like a disaster victim under a foil blanket...

Thank you for the links, Bunny - I'm loving the second Faith pewter sandal very much.

Shoes : tick.

I know I sound pathetic but I really get stressed about putting togther formal outfits - if I have pewter shoes, what colours should I go for with jewellery, wrap/jacket, bag, hat/hair stuff etc? I don't want to be matchy-matchy, but I never know the line between over-coordination and technicolour grin

I would keep it quite simple tbh. A bag to match the shoes - some possibles here =item3354d52a16&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14#ht_500wt_924

love this one!

Not a silver wrap though. Either a dressy cardie or a wrap in similar colour to the dress.

Some simple but eyecatching jewellery and hair up in a messy bun style - maybe a sparkly clip but absolutely not, under any circumstances, a fascinator!

I've just ordered a teal organza wrap - hopefully in sameish shades to my dress.

I've ordered the pewter shoes.

I'm contemplating this necklace from Phase Eight.

Pewter clutch, or teal/jade?

I'd go with matching shoes and bag so pewter.
will pull it all together. GREAT dress btw
