i’ve found THE ONE and now i’m totally stumped as to how accessorize it! my main dilemma is if i’ll wear a veil, a headband, or nothing at all. first off…here’s the dress…
and here it is on me in the “light gold” color option…
we’re having a vegas wedding and i think the slit up the thigh SCREAMS vegas! i love it!
i already know i don’t want a long veil at all. i like birdcages, but i’m unsure if they would look right with my dress. my consultant put the ribbon style headband on me once i had on my dress and my mom and i both really liked that.
i’m planning on wearing my hair like this :
this is my bestie and i at dinner before her bachelorette party (i’m on the left, btw) 🙂
anyways, the fingerwave style is something that my hair does naturally if i let it air dry. just by putting a little product in it and i can control how tight or loose the waves are.
this is what it would look like with looser waves…
any and all honest opinions wanted please 🙂 i’d also love to hear thoughts on jewelry and shoes. because of the slit up the thigh, my shoes are going to be extremely visable and will need to be super awesome!

Are you getting it in the light gold? It looks fabulous on you! What a gorgeous dress!
I like your hair exactly as you have it with the headband. I can’t see any kind of veil or anything else with that dress. I think you look perfect exactly as you are.

Wow it looks GREAT on you! Hot! I think a really awesome sparkly hairpiece–pin, flower, fascinator, or headband would be the icing on the cake with this dress.
If you nix hair things, I think you could go with big chandelier earrings.
But, if you go with a hair thing, I think you could rock a big sparkly bangle style thick bracelet on your arm. I don’t know that “delicate” things go with this dress!

Ha! I was so excited at how great you look I forgot about accessories and shoes!
I agree…a gorgeous sparkly cuff bracelet would be perfect.
Want colored shoes?

i’m not sure that i’d want colored shoes since they’d pretty much be visable at all times. i like color on brides where it’s sort of a “peek-a-boo”, now ya see it, now ya don’t sort of thing. i was thinking of anything from a silky light gold to match my dress, to a metalic gold or bronze.

I love the idea of a beautiful hair comb with that dress, something totally sparkly and jeweled.

1 – I LOVE your tattoo and your dress compliments it aMAZingly well
2 – I never thought I’d vote against a birdcage veil option, but I think it would detract from the dress. I’ve seen a lot of headbands with mini-veil attached to them (my hair is similar length to yours and I’m bound and determined to find a chin length birdcage that does NOT attach via a comb that won’t stay in my hair) if you REALLY want to go the veil route, but your sparkly headband looks amazing
3 – I also really liked the vintage hair clips that were posted up in the thread, they would match your dress well
4 – you HAVE to wear open toed pumps with this. too sexy!!!!

I think a great hair clip or comb would be enough!! but so many options would work with this!!

i love the dress – it’s hot on you! 🙂
i’d say peep toe shoes in a matching color – check out nina’s (macys, zappos)
i like the ribbon headband on you but if you’re not feeling that, sparkly slightly vintage combs would be great.
if you want a veil, definitely a birdcage or fascinator type piece rather than a regular full on veil.

Damn that dress look stunning on you. And love the hair. I would do vintage haircombs with lots of sparkle and a great matching bracelets or a few think bracelets.
For shoes, keep it simple, don’t take away from the dress or your hair. Matching peeptoes would look great. Maybe add a vintage rhinestone shoe clip. Check out Nordstroms or DSW.
