First of all, the dress looks great on you, i wouldn’t worry about that.  If you want to wear Spanx to feel more comfortable go ahead, but I wouldn’t say it’s necessary.  You should not wear a necklace because the dress appears to be a one shoulder.  Whether you wear your hair up or down, I think you should wear some longish earrings that play off of the silver accent on your dress.  And I think the shoes you have on could work.  Black shoes with some interest are what come to mind.

@mrs_pugetsound:  To be honest, I’d probably prefer the last two over the other pairs.  They are just more interesting.  I am 6’2″ so I am not a heels girl and probably shouldn’t even be commenting!

No necklace- the beading on the dress is your jewelry.

Wear hair up and wear earrings

If you want an additional piece of jewelry you could wear a cuff high up on the opposite arm to where the strap is.

Black or silver shoes- any of your pics would work except the last one- too chunky

Fab body- no need for anything other than what you wore in these pics.

@mrs_pugetsound:  Buy some Hanky Pankies.  I’ve never had a problem with that when I’m wearing those.
