The dress is in! The shoes are in! I’m trying to choose an outfit for e-session and for a civil ceremony.
I tried the dress on with two dif pairs of shoes – one gold, the other blue.
I have on a pearl chain necklace on the left picture (gold shoes).
Which one do you like better? Any other suggestions? I’m thinking a thick gold bangle if with gold shoes…if with blue, thinking I should just keep it simple? The top part is a bit too long (I have short torso) and thought adding a thick belt could fix the wrinkles. Belt? No belt? Can you suggest any specific belts?…I’m really bad at (don’t trust myself with) selecting belts…

I’m more drawn to the blue shoes WITH the necklace. And yes, dress it up with a bracelet/bangle for sure. And I voted to nix the belt. The dress looks great without one.

Love the blue shoes and I think you could even punch it up with a color bangle, this is going to look lovely in your pics!

Definitely the gold shoes – they really lighten the look and with all of those gorgeous ruffles, you don’t need to ground yourself with the shoes. I think the gold shoes are beautifully feminine. Belt – I could go either way. It sounds like you really want to define your waist with a belt and I think a belt the same width as the waistband on your dress would look really great. A white color or a pale gold perhaps to match the shoes?

I would suggest a belt, it will help to define your shape better and you can bring a pop of color in with it. If you do end up with a belt, then I would opt for the gold shoes so you can bring the color in with the belt!

Blue 😉 🙂 with the necklace and maybe a belt…

I think a belt would goof up the ruffles… so, I voted blue shoes and then perhaps a funky clutch or chuncky bangles.

Blue shoes but, also….something around the waist maybe too, just even to test it out.

A belt will mess up the line of the ruffles, so no belt!

I think I’ll go out and find a couple of belts next weekend and see what it looks like. Hopefully it won’t call for Part III vote. 😉 Thanks ladies!

My only suggestion if you go with the gold shoes is don’t over do the gold with your accessories! Metallics are neutrals and can be mixed an matched! try an awesome Silver bangle and a splash of color with green or blue earrings or whatever color would go best with your wedding. As for the belt… I really think that’s just up to you and how formal or informal you want your dress to look.

Definitely blue shoes.
No necklace – I couldn’t even tell you were wearing a necklace at first… it got lost in the ruffles.
As for a belt – I don’t think it’s necessary – because you have the illusion of a belt with the fabric. I’d only wear a belt if you feel like it will show off your shape more.

OK. I say NO belt, gold shoes, an arm of gold bangles and drop dead gorgeous earrings. I love the blue shoes, but when I look at the pic with them, that’s all I see and the dress is fabu so def play that up!

I’m loving the blue shoes (although I’m biased because mine are blue too!)! I agree a belt would mess up those pretty ruffles – so I’d skip that.
