How long is your hair?  If you really wanted to keep with the 50’s vibe, you could do a modern Liz Taylor style:

If your hair is too long for those (or you don’t like them)… I’ll keep searching for ideas…

I love this one:

In My Humble Opinion, I think you need it up so you don’t obscure the neckline.

May I say that I think you can find better shoes to fit the dress? I don’t think they match and I am a shoe fanatic so I thought I would share my input… hope that’s alright! 

I think something like the two shoes below would work better with your dress and the vintage theme you are going for. I do not see vintage when I look at your shoes, but I do in that dress.

Oh Mrs Hoot, I don’t really like them. πŸ™ I feel bad I don’t want to disway you from shoes you are set on, but I just think they clash with the dress. Not vintagy enough. And the laces… they just don’t go. And they don’t seem dressy enough to me to pair with lace. 

ETA: I am OBSESSED with shoes and fashion πŸ˜‰ which is why I just had to give my two cents on this.

@axeyourmakeupkit:  Agree, that dress needs alterations, it’s not doing her figure any justice. I would also take out the black sash.

@Diamond84:  Cute shoes! i would definitely get a more delicate shoe (also not in black) and switch the sash to an ivory like in the original photo and curl my hair with some soft waves and do a red lip. Perfect vintage look.

@atlbride2013:  Thanks! Yea I think pale pink, peach, blush belt will be better, with matching colored shoes. 

OP, what are your thoughts dear? πŸ™‚

@Mrs Hoot:  I understand. Being a 5 inch heel wearer, I guess it didn’t occur to me that you might not be used to high heels. 

Do you want to keep black as the sash?

@Diamond84:  I love the shoes that you suggested. And I do agree with you; they would definitely look better with this dress.

 

The dress itself is pretty – but I don’t like the black sash. I also think I would like the dress more if it wasn’t so white – If it was me, I’d probably tea-dye it, but that’s just me. =)

I also think it would look better if you’d tie the sash in the front like it is on the first pic you posted.

@Mrs Hoot:  Look for shoes that are 1950s-style in a pale ivory or off-white. That was the era when hemlines for wedding dresses lifted and shoes became visible. Look for t-straps and I know you said you don’t like heels but can you practice walking in them? You need shoes that elongate the leg, not shorten it, which is why thick-heeled black booties don’t work.
