So I picked up my dress – the very plain Sophia from J Crew – and I think I need to rethink my jewelry & shoe choices!
I was going to wear pearl studs from my mother and gold link bracelet that my father got my mother. But … I think I need something a little more – glamorous?
We are having an outdoor wedding & reception, and it’s more of a fancy garden party than an elaborate wedding. Even so, I feel that the dress’ simplicity is not so bridal right now. In daily life, I’m a pretty simple dresser (think sheath dresses and pearls), but this seems to call for some more excitement!
I was thinking some chandelier or drop earrings, maybe a necklace like this: http://www.tejani.com/bridal-jewelry/wedding-necklaces/y-shaped-pearl-necklace-b139.html – and the shoes I find really dull right now! With my big feet, I have to get what fits sometimes.
Where have you found luck shopping for accesories?
Oh yeah … wedding’s 17 days away. 🙂

I LOVE the Sophia (and bought it to wear myself but then my mom ruined it, LONG story.) And you look smokin hot in it! You go girl.
I agree that you need some glam. I’ve tried on a similar pair of Badgley Mischkas as the Goodie II that Serajane suggested. I didn’t like the way the brooches touched the top of my foot. Instead I bought a plain Badgley Mishka pump and am adding my own brooches/shoe clip, in exactly the size and amount of bling I want. This way the shoe fits, and the bling is unique. This is my favorite pair of clips the moment:
Its possible to search “flatback brooches” on Etsy and they start at less than $10. Its not tough to sew or hot glued directly on the shoe.
Serajane mentioned some great options for necklaces!! Personally I’m also a relatively simple dresser, and to keep is simple I’m going to do just a necklace and bracelet. Simple lines on a piece of substantial size keeps the look sleek (like the Sophia). So maybe you could wear the heirloom bracelet, and add a FAB gold necklace…
This necklace is so stunning In My Humble Opinion. Bold things like this look so great in pictures…

Here are a few more that seem really nice and a little less bold…
Good luck Cookies!!

Aw, you guys are so sweet! What a treat to read all these thoughtful comments this morning.
Thank you, thank you.
I just ordered two new pairs of shoes to try from Nordstrom: (Sorry the pictures sizes are all jacked up!)
I love your jewelry ideas. I was thinking either fancy earrings and a fancy cuff bracelet like y’all suggested or maybe just something like this (from J Crew) with the original earring & bracelet plan:
Thanks for all the thoughts! I never would have gone to Etsy and now i think i’ll spend my whole workday searching through the options.
